Yeahhhhhh, fixed my NES
    #542690 - 04/03/11 01:31 PM (5 years, 8 months ago)

So in the last few weeks I've started obsessing over retro gaming...I know emulators work, but they aren't the same as cartridges systems and controllers on a TV.

So over the last week I've been going nuts trying to fix my NES. I learned soooooo much about their innar workings and how to fix them. Been at it all week, and finally got it to the point where it reads every game I have the first time. No blowing in them, no wiggling the bitches around, just plays exactly like I bought it new in 1985.

Haha, sorry for the pointless thread. I'm just really proud of myself and wanted to tell someone other than the people in my house who don't give a shit :lol:

I'm gonna start restoring systems I find at garage sales and ebaying 'em for big monies. As well as repairing systems and professionally cleaning cartridge games for a locally owned retro gaming store. :cool:

So True my friend. Me and my girlfriend together have alot of systems. The ones that get played the most are the older ones, probably cause they have the best games! We have every Nintendo console on the market.They all dont work at 100% but we keep em in good shape.

congrats on the fix, cool to learn shit like that!

I've still got all of my old systems

and I found a guide online on how to turn a NES into a emulator console.
I got like 7 in various levels of working order so I've always wanted to try and build one

Turns out 99% of the reason most NESes won't work is the games. You can clean them all day with rubbing alcohol and they still won't be clean. If you use a dab of some shit called "Brasso" brass polish it cleans them up instantly (then you use the iso alcohol to remove the leftover film).

It fixed a game I have NEVER gotten to work, so well that it works the first time every time.

The problem after that is the connector within the system, which is pretty easy to replace :thumbup:

NES was my first system when I was a kid.

Contra, MegaMan, the first 2 Zelda games, Metroid, SO BADASS!

See, that term pedo gets thrown around a lot.
Is a 16 year old guy having sex w/a 16 year old girl a pedophile?
If not, then how is a 30 year old considered a pedophile for doing the same thing?
I think y'all need to look up the definition for pedophile.

Fuck yeah bro, I was 4 when I got my first NES. I had that thing up until I was in Middle School. I don't recall what happened to it though. I had like 30 different games, haha. Megaman was one of my top favorites by far. That and Zelda. The 2nd Zelda game was hella lame though, all side-scroller style n' shit. I played A LOT of The Blue Marlin too, haha.

I love going to garage sales looking for old games. People sell them for like a quarter each, and I'd have to spend $10 - $55 each online for the games I want.

I don't really feel bad buying them from people who don't know what they're worth, because its not like I'm just gonna flip them on ebay. If anything (like, its an expensive game I already own) I'm going to trade it to other collectors for games. So, guilt free. :cool:

Hell yeah! Still one of the hardest games on the NES too. The enemies don't fuck around in that game. I loved how you could use weapons and shit too.

Oh man, I know right? Some of those NES games are still some of the hardest games ever made.

I play Snes sometimes. I have the original FFIII cartridge for America.
