I love Lukie Games, I really do. This pin connector was used to replace a very old non-functioning one, hoping to bring new life into my old NES. The installation was easy, provided you have opened your NES before. The pin fit right in without any trouble, however the blinking problem is still there. I found out that if you don't insert the game all the way in you can get the games to work sometimes, but it's a hit or miss. I guess that's as good as it will get.

My son Will, loved this 72 pin connector! He used this as a project for school for his great teach in for the class. He was so excited and was a wealth of knowledge for anyone wishing to reconnect with the past and how the old systems work!

Nice To Have As A Backup
After having issues with my NES reading some of my games, i figured i'd replace the pin connector and got one of these. The problem turned out to be the games themselves only needing thorough cleaning, but it's kinda nice because now i have a brand new spare connector in case the original goes bad.

I ordered it in, and how long it took to get here was exactly what I was hoping for, but the connectors were all rusted and corroded. Lukie Games is a GREAT website. And even though I did get a poor quality item, I will always order from this store! I probably just got a unlucky item!

This is kind of the way the pin connector should have been done. I made sure to open and clean my games before trying this out. The only thing I have noticed is if you push the game in too much, they won't work. Perhaps a modification to the design could prevent the game from being allowed to be pushed in too much. I never push the game down after putting the game into the console. I even made a modification to my console so you cannot push the game down which again is probably the way the console should have been designed anyway. There only has a light "death grip", nothing that moving the cartridge left and right to pull it out won't fix. I'm totally fine with it gripping the cartridge because that friction actually helps keep the cart and your system clean which again is a flaw in the original NES design.

Just what my NES needed
Prior to moving I found the NES in the basement and took it muwahaha! Clearly it needed some TLC. I carefully cleaned it.I can't believe how many sugary liquids made their way inside without it breaking. After some tinkering clearly the pin connector needed to be replaced. I could see this task being frustrating for some one who doesn't know their way around electronics and such. Having epic tinkering skills isn't necessary though! My NES is back to working quite well. Now to show my eldest the first console that blew my mind.
