Seller says he had it cleaned and got a new 72 pin connector installed but he sees horizontal lines on the screen with every game he plays. He has a generic Sega/NES power adaptor plus he uses uses rca cables and I think that's the problem or the games just need to be cleaned
Anyway I got to talk him down to $50 because I don't know if this can be fixed or not based on what I researched online in 20 minutes but the question is, should I buy this?
It looks brand new too

$50? It better include the original box, styrofoam, manuals, etc. for that. I can get one completely boxed at a local hobby shop for $70-$80 (varies depending on condition of box), but I'd never pay that if it were just some Craigslist guy.

I wouldn't take that deal.

The problem is online everyone sells everything for more than its really worth. The seller is on ebay too
I wish I could find a boxed system but a boxed NES or SNES on ebay is at least triple digits or watching bids from strangers all day

I wish I lived by the magical hobby shop you're speaking of

As a matter of fact it's a guy on ebay selling the box ONLY for $50 lol

Interesting. I've seen boxed NES consoles go for around $80 on Ebay within the last year.

Yea. They were the lucky ones
I am doing some looking around though and the lowest I see is a complete boxed one listed for $50, most likely someone that just wants to get rid of it and make some easy money. Hopefully I get lucky with that one lol

If you can afford a little more, you might want to consider tracking down a toploader.

I would recommend getting one that is modified, meaning that you can plug in AV cables, instead of the RF adapter.

$50? No way...

I got mine (toaster) for about $40.00.

Exactly, I meant "no way" as in there's no way I'd buy it

The NES would be a better buy than the Wii U anyways!

Isn't that all old toaster models though? I know the one I had as a kid had composite cords for it, though it was only mono sound.

I'm talking about the Top loader, I know the Toaster has AV outlets.

Ah, I missed that part of it.

Yeah, for some odd reason, Nintendo decided to NOT put AV output on the Top-Loader.
