So, I have my vife's old NES, that used to work. I know it worked, 'cause I played, but it was like 10yrs ago, and we have since moved several times.
I found http://classicgaming.gamespy.com/Vie....Detail&id=256
while looking around, but it did not work.
Here's the deal.
Old NES, with the blinking grey screen of death(GSoD).
I followed the instrux on the url(above).
The only problem with the instrux is that the 72pin connector did not actually come off of the board. I tried everything, short of banging the unit up and down. So I cleaned it as best I could, straightened out the pins, and put it back together. Should it detach from the board?
Still, I have the GSoD.
Does anyone else have any suggestions?
Also, I assume that it is best using the RCA video cord, as opposed to the RF convertor, correct? I got the GSoD with the video cord, and nada with the RF converter.
Lastly, I assume that the power transformer is the correct one, but it is not labeled, other than, "Danger, to avoid electric shock...blah, blah, blah" No, Nintendo logo or anything.
I would like to get this thing up and running if possible.
