Retro Gaming Gains A Savior?

Sparkinator Re:I have a few NES knockoffs (79 comments)

You ever hear of this trick? Insert cart into NES as close to the front of the system as possible. I usually do the above at the same time as pushing down to make sure it just clears the front of the machine. I clean my machine as often as possible to stay clean. I still have an original working NES. As you probably know the contacts on those 72-pin become bent from inserting the carts which leads to the contacts not lining up. The other thing I sometimes do is clean off the contacts on the carts themselves. These can become rusted. An eraser is good for this.
