I am almost ready to slam the fargin icehole against the wall, Atari VCS works everytime, PStwo works everytime SNES works everytime even the friggin Sega works everytime, I love the NES games but the machines must have been designed by a moron.

I have heard of the blinking blue screen of death effect of the NES but has anyone saw one that blinks red? That is what mine does nine time out of ten when I hit the power just a red blinking screen, any ideas what causes this or how it could be fixed? Oh yeah it does eventually work after a good beating/cursing.

Thanks for the tips, I tried em and the POS still doesnt work for more than five minutes at a time, it is going in the dumpster come the morrow, I shall never pay for a front loading NES again, I will pay up to ten dollars for a top loader if in perfect shape or will accept working front loaders if they are free LONG LIVE THE VCS!!!!

LOL Look, the best advice I can give you is: clean your console, clean your carts and buy a 72-pin connector (ebay has them plenty) which goes for about $5. If you are too cheap for that, then you really deserve the multicolored screen treatment.
Yeah, works like a charm, it didnt come with controllers or a power supply but I saved those when I chunked my NES yesterday morning so I am set up and OK as far as the NES goes.... but still a liar though, I should have asked the lady to give it to me for free

Strange. Most came with a proper ZIF as far as I know.
I always wondered why you had to push the cart down? I got my first VCR NES back in 89 new, and I played it for years and never had problems with it, untill about 95, when one of my friends asked why I didn't push the carts down.
Well, heck, I knew the thing fit in there kind of funny, but being me, I never read the instructions to anything, and like a dum bass I started pushing it down like it was supposed to, supposedly. It wasn't long befor I started getting the screen problems, and when I tried going back to my old way, it didn't work anymore.
Nah. Most shipped with a zero-insertion force socket. The connector, from the factory, didn't grip unless you pushed it down. It's DESIGNED to be pushed down. It's also designed to not grip very tightly, so it's more sensitive to interference.
I'm thinking that when they were shipped, the connectors were tight enough to work without pushing it down. But when you start pushing it down, it bends them out of shape...or into their supposed to be this way shape which prevents them from working while up as easily, or at all, and due to bending stuff when you push it down, it's not long befor it breaks.
