When I play on my nes the video of the games doesnt display what is suppoded to be there. For example I was playing othello and the white and black pieces looked like this 12 56 34 78
All of the games do this where there is ramdom numbers, letters or symbols on the screen and I dont know why.

Hello, I managed to plug my nes , in the audio-video format (rf jack not working , no good signal at all) but I think that my image quality is very poor , I mean , in super mario bros , the perimetric lines of objects seems isotropic, not straight (does nes do anisotroping filtering normaly ? ).
Also, I managed to record the following video from my mobile phone, showing another display problem that I encounter. In the 10th second of this video (as I shaked the camera to a slight different angle) you will notice that lines-traces , facing always to the right of the object-sprite, even Mario has its own trace:
So, is this tv problem or nes problem? I have noticed the same problem on other cartridges too.If it is nes problem,what to do to fix this plz?

I dont even click my tray down,It works fine leaving it up.Maybe youll have better luck like that.Or it sounds like maybe you need to clean your cartridges more.Use alcohol and a q-tip if you see black coming off on the q-tip keep going..

Interesting issue I'm having with my NES. I recently replaced my 72 pin connector and replaced all of the cartridges. Only now about 15% of my games no longer work unless the cartridge is held slightly further down with some sort of weight, in which case they work perfectly. Most games still work without this, and the game tray still clicks up and down just fine. Any suggestions?

I'm trying to repair a broken unit with power issues. I've tested a few power adapters, the adapters all work fine on other NES's, but on this one it doesn't work. Obviously the problem is either the button itself or the appendix board to the mobo. The problem is, I can't get to that tiny board because the case is soldered to the board and the case is glued to the mobo. I don't want to desolder what I don't have to, but I don't know how else to get to this board. Has anyone else faced this problem? Do I just have to bite the bullet and desolder the tiny board? I can take pictures if it helps, but I won't be able to post them until later tonight, since I'm doing this with my free time at work and can't upload to the internet from here.

Hi, I am the owner of two NES consoles. One works but I have to move the game around inside of it to get it to come on; there is no flashing but just a solid grey screen most of the time. The other will not load a game at all and usually shows a blinking green screen and occasionally a solid green screen but will never load a game at all. On both of these consoles, I have tried fixing the 72 pin connector. On the first one, it helped, but is still not 100%. The second one did not do anything at all. What do you suggest?

Hi there when I turn my system on with a cart in the screen is just filled with different coloured lines! Any ideas?

So, the problem is, when i put in a game, and turn the NES on, the game plays, sounds plays, but every 3 seconds the television makes a scratchy noise and a fuzzy grey horizontal band travels up the screen.
I just moved, and i figure the NES must have been dropped at some point and thats what started the problem.
And no, blowing air into the machine doesnt seem to be doing the trick.
I would appreciate any help Thanks
