5.0 out of 5 stars An explanation for the negative reviews. November 13, 2010

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The 1 star reviews seem to have been made by people who don't realize that this can't fix EVERY nintendo, just a lot of them. If the problem with your NES stems from a bad connector, then this product is going to work just dandy. If the problem lies elsewhere, then this isn't going to do any good. Sadly, as far as I know, there's no way to tell the difference between a system that does need a new connector and one that does not; other than buying a new connector and trying it out. The other thing you need to watch out for, something that I had issues with; is that you need to test as many games as possible before you give upon the connector. Since most of my games have come from yard-sales and thrift stores, I had no way of knowing if they worked before fixing the system.

Bottom line, if you've got an NES that doesn't work try this, it might fix your problems. Also, be sure to test 10-20 games before you deem the procedure a failure; something may have damaged some of your games in the past 25 years, and you just didn't realize it.

5.0 out of 5 stars No more blinking light!!! June 26, 2009
By M. King
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
When i got this i thought it would not work. But i went online and read that it fixes the games because it clamps down on the game to read it better. Now every single game that i have works perfectly and my worse game only has blinked a couple times but all i had to do was blow the game out and it worked fine. The only bad thing about this is that it is very hard to take the game out because it clamps so hard. But other than that it works fine.

5.0 out of 5 stars 72 Pin connector (is just awsome) July 15, 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I highly recommend this connector, especially if you buy it from Culsam`s original nes store, who provided me with an excellent customer service that included a message of how to clean my game cartridges.

So let`s talk now about the connector:
If you get the red blinking light of death you should buy this connector as it will allow you to play videogames that you were not able to play as the NES never worked fine

P.D I highly recomend also buying the 3.8mm Security Bit to clean your cartridges.

3.0 out of 5 stars 72 Pin NES Connector June 29, 2009
Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
The connector made my NES run a bit better, but did not fix it 100%. I still must wiggle my cartridge around and pull it about half way out before i can get the game to start. I think this is because the connectors are not all the same, also there might be a difference in NES main boards.

The customer service from LukieGames, however, was excellent. I called with a problem and they helped me out over the phone and sent me a replacement for free with no questions asked and great attitude. I will definitely be buying from LukieGames again. Great people.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
My son's friend had a non-functioning old Nintendo system. Brief Internet search showed that this part is responsible for many failures of NES systems. It took about 30 minutes to take the NES apart and plug this in and the NES was good as new. I believe they are still using it.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Nintendo now works! September 3, 2009
By Brandon
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm glad this worked out. I was nervous that I would waste the money on this gaming system, but the 72pin Connector was an easy fix. You don't have to be a tech geek to replace the part. It's fairly simple and now my Nintendo works like NEW. Thanks.
