I was reminded by a person on another forum that they were registering their old DS games on CN, so I figured I might see just what would happen if I were to register my stuff. Shuffled through my junk, found the box that contained all my DS cases (in very nice condition, but all my games are in my 18-slot cases), but I noticed a box on a shelf that looked like it hadn't been touched in a long time. I pull it down and open it, and what do I find? Warning: Spoilers inside! Let me tell you, I was completely ecstatic. Not just my NES, but also my SNES, along with all my games (plus probably some borrowed from friends long ago). The thing though is that I have no idea if they still work. I took them in, and as I was holding the NES, I noticed the lid was loose. My mind began to fill with thoughts of the distant past. It was like that because I had opened it. Some time in my childhood, the NES fell off the stand it was on, and the result was that the audio got screwed up. Unless I pressed decently hard on the bottom side of the console on a specific point, the Square Wave channels would be silent (meaning all you'd hear are the triangle/bass, the noise, and the DPCM channels). I initially began taking the system apart, making sure I didn't do anything stupid that would prevent the system from ever turning on again, but I didn't get far because for I was so young, and it looked so complicated just from the top-side. Anyways, I still don't know if it works. It's late so I don't want to go fiddling around the TV in the other room to plug in the RF switch, but the power brick was there, so I checked to see if any power would run through it. Plugged it in and turned on the system to be greeted with the timeless slow blinking signal. Got a cartridge, blew into it and into the system, and with numerous attempts to change the state of the power light, it finally stayed on. That's as far as I got. Will check with the TV tomorrow. The SNES is a different story. The power brick for that is missing, and I'm doubtful the NES one will work with it. Even if I had it, it has a problem with the power connection. Long ago (again), it stopped working because it wasn't receiving power. My dad took a look at it, and with a carefully placed piece of foil inserted into the port, plugging the power in and tapping it together, he was able to make it work again. Looking online now at how it should look, it appears the middle plastic cylinder broke off (as the foil which reside in it now is in that spot). Because of no power brick, I can't test it. As far as video/audio, I have the RF switch, but I also have a composite cable from my N64 that may work with it. So I'm going to test the NES in the morning, but while I don't consider these a priority, it would be nice if both were in working order to the point where I could play games on them. I'll be back tomorrow to possibly request some help if I am in need to do some repair or whatnot (like with the audio problem on the NES and power problem on the SNES).
