i decided this board is worthy off the fact that idk how long my nes will last, i took it apart the other day and yanked off the 72 pin connector, that thing looked brand new, but the part of the board it connected to has a pin out that looked like it seen better days, i took some sand paper and sanded off most the burnt out part off and it works right now but i doubt that will last forever. it looked like someone sanded that part already in the past(posibly when the connector was replaced) so i didn't want to sand it out completely because i felt like i was going to wear it down too much

(1) Use silver polish on the pins on the motherboard. Rub with a piece of cloth until the pins turn black. Rub the black off. Keep doing this until they are reflective.

(2) Get a container of water and get it boiling. Turn of the heat. Put the 72 pin connector in for 2 minutes. Take it out. Get the water boiling again. Put the connector back in for 2 minutes. Take it out.

Let the connector dry.

Your NES will play games like new.


Done this on over a dozen "dead" NES. Most played like new after this.

Also, check for bad caps.

the 72 pin connecter is almost new looking, it is the pin outs the connecter fits to i'm worried about, i sanded it out mostly but there is a couple pins that look worn down and this is on the board itself. it's been fine though since i sanded and cleaned that piece i just don't know if it will last forever cuz of it, it wouldn't be able to take more abuse to the board like that. but ya when i took the connecter off a few weeks back it was burnt out on them pins that is y i had to sand
