how to clean an NES:
To clean a system by hand:
1.Remove the screws on the underside of the system.
2.Turn the system over and lift off the plastic top.
3.Remove the screws holding down the metal RF shield and remove
4.Remove the screws holding down the black plastic cartridge holder.
Note how the small plastic tab on the front of the holder slides
underneath the motherboard. Slide the holder forward and remove
(it's all right if the motherboard bends slightly).
5.Lift the back of the motherboard up and pull off the set of contacts
in the black plastic housing. (They will resist a bit but just rock them
back and forth to slide them off.)
6.Dip a toothbrush (preferably not yours; use a loved one's) in the
cleaning solution and scrub contacts off.
7.Rinse contacts off with water and allow to dry.
8.Lift up the back of the motherboard and slide the contacts back into
9.Lift up front the front of the motherboard and slide the cartridge
holder onto the contacts. Be sure the tab on the front of the holder
clips underneath the motherboard.
10.Reattach the cartridge holder's screws. (The long ones go in the
second set of holes from the back.)
11.Plug in the system and test with clean cartridges. (It's perfectly safe
to do so with the top off.)
12.If the games still won't work the contacts may be bad.
Replacements can be taken from another defective system or
purchased from some electronics dealers, however.
13.If the system is working properly, replace the cover (you can leave
the RF shield off if you like, I won't tell the FCC) and reattach the
screws on the bottom.
I should really take a break after these trades. i'm starting to have dreams of waiting for the mail....
