Repair Log: June - July 2013

 

  • Fixed NES. Had issues with the 72-pin connector. I bent the pins back with a small screw driver and cleaned them, then cleaned the edge connector contacts on the PCB, and its now working but still pretty finicky. In the future, I'm going to replace the 72-pin connector and do a full re-cap.
  • Fixed Super Mario RPG SNES cart. Took it apart. It had really dirty contacts, which I cleaned, and a loose pin which I resoldered.
  • Tried to fix Tetris (NES), but found that the edge connector contacts were completely worn off.
  • Fixed several SNES/SFC carts that had dirty edge connector pins (Mario Kart, Pilotwings, Contra 3 [JP], Legend of Zelda 3 [JP]).
