So I found my nintendo and I hooked the thing up to the t.v. with all the proper chords and what not. I set the thing to work on channel 3 and my t.v. is on channel 3. I took the bitch apart and cleaned it out, but it still doesnt work. The "power" light is blinking on and off. Now when I was younger I used to just blow in the bitch and it would work. That aint workin. Any suggestions on how to get the Nintendo to work?

you have run a scan for channels on your tv to tune the nes in dont you?



Theres a button on the back of the Nintendo that you set to channel 3 or 4. I set it to 3. Thats not the problem. Thanks though.

Yes, I agree. I effin' love bagels.

And about your problem, maybe it's just old and tired.

Or maybe it's your AV cables.

i got out my snes a couple weeks ago...played some of the old classics. try to find another working one, theyre worth having around.

edit: the tv channel scan may be right. i had to do a channel scan to get my super nintendo to work. do it just to try...i bet it works.

What are you like 12?
Nintendo was the sex back in the day.
No technology can replace those memories.

By the way TS, I'd say search google, I'm sure there's some kind of forum deep in the depths of the internet with some info on it.

I meant the dead nintendo.
Not the dumb computer. Pshh. Who needs that?

This has inspired me to go on to eBay though.
I had an NES for awhile (from yardsale) and it crapped out on me.
But I feel in the mood for some SNES, I want to play me some Donkey Kong Country.
