Everdrive N8 Famicom green screen on startup
« on: January 19, 2017, 02:27 PM »
I have purchased Everdrive N8 Famicom version and when I put it into my system all I get is a green screen. I tried booting it up with and without the SD card and it changes nothing. I tried entering the diagnostic menu with start+select+a+b but nothing showed and no amount of waiting brought anything.

I tried running my system with an original 9V 500mA power adapter and a Genesis one that is 10V 1200mA, but it changed nothing. Some other carts I have worked fine with the system both times.

Could this be just because my famiclone is incompatible? I'm waiting on another one and I am really curious. I saw other people having similar problems, but they at least got garbled graphics - in this case there's just the green screen.

Thanks!

Hi @Svajoklis

Yes sure it's possible that your famiclone doesn't support EverDrive.
However you need to try to clean the contacts of your EverDrive.
Very often dirty contacts cause problems on famicom and famiclone consoles.

How long is the screen green? Mine is also green when I power it on, but the pictures comes up in a short while.

It's the standard behaviour. You don't need to worry.

This might be a dumb question, but did you try pressing the reset button a few times?

It was a fault of my cheap FunStation famiclone. I ordered this one

which is from Subor I think and it works beautifully :)

I found these instructions about how You can modify Your famiclone to support Everdrive N8 if You don't want to get another one, but Yours doesn't work: http://krikzz.com/forum/index.php?topic=3001.0

You know, don't expect the Everdrive N8 to load on a FamiClone.
Just purchase a cheap Famicom. It's around 5 bucks (at least in Japan which is 500 yen. and 100 yen = 1 dollar)
And if you have the Original NES, use the Famicom to NES adapter instead. that will work.
