Black Box appearing over-top of gameplay
« on: April 09, 2021, 07:56 PM »
Good day,

When playing my NA Front loader NES with an original N8 lately, I occasionally get a black box that will appear over top of the gameplay. It's not a full-screen box, as can be seen in the attached photo.

The game continues to play fine "behind" it, and if you get past that section that it appeared in, it will go away and you can continue playing.

My NES is modified with an official NESRGB and a Blinking Light Win, but it was working perfectly fine until recently.

I updated the firmware on my N8 to the latest version as of yesterday, and tried to move everything to a different SD card. No change.

Anyone have any idea why this would be happening?

I can only guess that it's the NESRGB. Do you have any way to test the N8 on any other console?

Yeah, I could test it on a friend's console. Will report back with findings.
