My Game Room

Recommended Posts

Yeah I have seen the videos on replacing it and does not look hard at all. Just need to make the time oh and order the part. Lol. ....... My oldest is 14 and she likes the room as a game room. She lost interest in toys at about 10-11 so hoping by then the 4 year old will be a gamer like the rest of us. Lol Fingers crossed ????

I guess I'm bad about trying to breath life into original parts.  All I did was take my 72-pin connector off, cut cardboard to the width, or smaller than, the opening of the connector.  I then wrap masking tape around one end so it can be used to clean the pins.  Sometimes I've used emery boards, too, and used canned air to blow away any particles.  Last ditch efforts have been using pliers to gently bend the pins back in place by applying slight pressure on the top and bottom plastics of the connector end the cart goes into.  So far my NES has been flicker free for 5 years now doing those and is still using the original pins it came with.

 

If you don't find what you are looking for on ebay or are not comfortable with that site there is an online game store that sells them.  And with free shipping on order of $25 or more you might could get some games you are missing along the way to save on shipping costs ;)  Link to the pins I found below.  Nice game room!!

We definitely have lots of plans. One being tv on back of bar. We had one but right now it is in our camper. The older tvs will not fit, I tried. We are going to be having outlets put in so we can hookup stuff on the bar. Only thing I had hooked up to the TV that was on the bar was my C64.
