NES 72-pin Connector

This connector is made of a much stronger metal than the original. It is the strongest one you can find and it will not corrode over time.

Is your NES giving you problems? Do your games seem to be not working the way they used to? Or maybe your screen just flashes yellow and gray? It could be that your old 72 pin connector is broken! The original connectors had a design flaw, and were made of cheap metal that corrodes after time.
 
This connector is made of a much stronger metal than the original. It is the strongest one you can find and it will not corrode over time. It works with the original 8-bit Nintendo system, and is simple to replace, only a Phillips head screwdriver is needed to complete installation in minutes.
 
Product Features
  • Easy installation with a screwdriver
  • Works with original 8-bit NES system

    NES 72-Pin Connector

    Posted by Sean on Aug 20th 2022

    Ordered a few to replace the worn-out connectors on a few consoles I refurbished for a friend. All pins and screw holes lined up perfectly, and all games ran as well as when new.

    If you run into problems, try disassmbling the game cart itself, polishing and cleaning its connector pins thoroughly with a fine polish and lots of isopropyl alcohol.

    My childhood has been jump-started!

    Posted by Alexander Dhuyvetter Gil on Aug 13th 2022

    I originally fixed up my older brother's NES and gave it back to him a few years ago. Now, I got one of my own, but i wanted a fresh start when it came to booting up games. This 72-pin connector sounded the most promising, and I wasnt disappointed! Swapped out the connectors, put in Super Mario Bros, and I'm off to save the princess! Came in a timely fashion as well! Thank you Stone Age Gamer!!

    Works well for me!

    Posted by James D on Jul 22nd 2022

    I had a friend give me an old NES that has been sitting in a hot garage in Arizona for the past decade. (If you are unaware we have summers in the 100 and teens and garages are notoriously brutal in the summer time). Needless to say it didn’t fire right up when I inserted a decrepit old copy of Mario 3. I installed one of these, and I recapped the system and it’s working great. This is an exact copy of the OEM version made a bit more robustly. Install is possible for anyone remotely handy with a screwdriver. The original design of the 72 pin is flawed so any issues with this is simply inherent to the design of the side loading NES. For me, the new pins, making sure my carts are clean, and inserting the cart squarely into the system works very time. (Even with a banged up copy of Mario 3). Be careful not to over tighten those screws, you’ll strip the plastic!

    Worst aftermarket 72 pin I've ever worked with

    Posted by David MacAdam on Jul 22nd 2022

    I've worked with a multitude of aftermarket 72 pins on both my own hardware and for others and this one is by far the worst I've ever dealt with.

    I've had 72 pins that grip tightly, but never so tight that it borders on damaging the game and board until this one. And even after cleaning it still wasn't much better than the 72 pin I was replacing, connectivity wise.

    I ended up boiling and rebending the original pins I was going to replace with this and have had no further issues.

    Honest

    The item is of good quality and contact with cart feels tighter. However didn't fix my problem completely. I think the board and pins had too much corrosion. I'd recommend cleaning that first inside the NES. Overall happy with the slightly better performance I'm getting.

    It Lives! (Thanks to Stone Age Gamer)

    My NES had developed the dreaded Blinking Light of Doom and I had thought it had seen its last days…Then I found SAG’s 72-pin Connector and was able to restore the console to full working condition! The installation was so easy too! It only took about 30 minutes and I was back to playing all the classics. A great investment for anyone who thinks their NES has seen the light!

    NES 72-PIN CONNECTOR

    Posted by William Johnson on Jul 2nd 2021

    the one i got works great, although i can not use it if i push the cart down on my front loader, but it works if it don't just fine so no real complaints there, unlike the one i got from sunjoyco that was bent all out of whack.
