Hello everyone, I was referred here from Racketboy and am hoping someone can help me with a SNES issue. Please forgive me if I'm doing anything wrong with this first post -- I'm totally new to your forum and don't know how you guys roll yet. THE ISSUE: Our SNES (original model) has gone on the fritz. Carts work fine, but they don't go past the preliminary screen. For example, with Mario Kart and Mario World, the Nintendo logo comes up, but never progresses further. For SimCity, we get the opening splash screen and music, but can't advance beyond that. I've cleaned the carts with alcohol and electronics cleaner, and did the same with the console as much as I could without opening it up (dipping the hem of a soft shirt in alcohol and using a credit card nestled within to get between the pins, then later spraying a bit of electronics cleaner in there and doing the same credit card trick). Nothing changed. The system has never had an issue before; I was using it only weeks before our most recent move, same as always. My suspicion is that it got jostled around in transit and maybe something came loose inside... but that's just a guess. I don't currently have the tools to open up the console and look around, but when I do acquire them, does anyone have an idea what the problem might be, or how I could fix it? Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thank you so much.
