Power Circuit Repair If your Nintendo NES doesn't switch on, you may have an issue with your power circuit or power adapter. Not to be confused with a worn out 72 Pin Connector, with power failure your console will not power on (no power light flashing or constant and no picture).
We can test both your console and power adapter, and where power adapter failure has occured we recommend replacing your old adapter with a modern replacement. Where the power circuit in your console has failed we can provide repair. In cases of catastrophic failure (unprotected power surge, lightning strike etc) damage can be present beyond the power circuit.
72 Pin Cartridge Connector Replacement The most common complaint with the NES is a worn out cartridge connector - with the problem generally presenting as a blinking power light and cartridges only loading after a lot of persuasion, or not loading at all. Brand new replacements are available to bring your NES back to life and so you can load games the first time every time.
Be sure to check your game cartridges for dirty electrical contacts which can contribute to the problem, and can cause problems even after a new 72 Pin Connector is installed. The contacts should be bright and shiny, free of tarnish, debris and corrosion. Cartridge contacts can be cleaned using cotton buds and a gentle solvent (typically Isoporopyl Alcohol).
Motherboard Replacement If your NES has sustained significant damage on the motherboard is may require replacement with a refurbished board. A refurbished board comes with a brand new 72 Pin Connector installed to held load your games first time every time.
