I cleaned it so the contacts are shinning like new but it won't work. All I get is a purple screen ,green screen, or black screen.   Is there anything else I can do to fix it?

Do you have an INTV II? It won't work in those.

Out of the 4 million copies out there it should not be hard to replace it.  I have a couple of dozen if you want one for just the shipping cost.

Try inserting at a slight angle and/or not all the way inserted. If you have an Intellivoice, maybe try running it through that. Some games like the Intellivoice pins.

From all the carts in my garage...Donkey Kong Jr sold no where near what Donkey Kong did. Everybody bought Donkey Kong - and learned a lesson.

I have Donkey Kong and Zaxxon. They both work on my Intellivision 1.   Second cartridge that died on me after a copy of barnstorming for atari 2600 died.

Try inserting the cartridge and then pulling it back until only the edge of the cartridge contacts the edge of the slot. Turn it on and reset. I have two cartridges that only work this way. You can open the cartridge and check for solder problems.

Donkey Kong Junior is compatible with Intellivision II.

Tried that and it still didn't work.

I see mostly cbs versions of Donkey Kong JR on Ebay.  Are those the same as the Coleco version?

Aside from the different shell and packaging it should be the same.

Here a close up of the back of the board.  Is that cracked solder with the lines in it?

The solder looks fine. If you are concerned about lines, you can check continuity with a multimeter.
