This brings back so many memories!.. I used to Blow my games for a while, and when that didnt work id shove it in the NES slot at slight angle over and over.. but Blowing the games was the IN thing to do for me and my pack of misfit, unhinged pack of friends.

Pretty much the same variation. Blow in it, try it, get the weird screen, turn of NES, take out cartridge and blow in it some more. There were some classic games back then man: Contra, Double Dragon, some kind of Kung Fu game, the Knockout game, Super Mario 3, and of course Zelda.

If you had played for awhile i would stick the NES in the freezer for a quick chill. if that didn't work clean both the cart and reader slot in the console with a q-tip and alcohol. if still no i would get a bottle of my moms nail polish push the cart down and wedge the bottle in between the top of the console and the cart. I still had more but this will wund up being a college length essay if i went to detail.
