1Big_L91Sat 26th Jul 2014 hey guys i recently bought my first nes but been having some trouble getting it working. i got 2 games with it DK classics and mario bros. dk worked quite well most of the time but was having a hard time getting mario bros going, most of the time just getting a gray screen. the games were off a friend though so dont know how well they were looked after. so i picked up top gun, marble madness and digger t from a retail store near me. none of these games worked except top gun once. i assumed it must be the nes since these games were surely tested before being sold (i trust the store btw). so anyway i thought it might be the alignment of the connector pins so i took it apart put a game in and screwed it into place ( i also disabled the lockout chip) tested it with the lid off and if anything its worse, managed to get DK to work once. but even still I cant physically put it back together the front of the drawer seems to get caught on the block on the front of the cart holder. the back fits flush but i cannot get the front to lay flat. i cant understand it because everything is screwed down in its original spot. so anyone got any tips for 1)getting it to read the carts (seems like a problem with the nes since 4 out of 5 carts wont play) and 2) getting the bloody thing back together thanks in advance guys put it on.
