I bought a yobo nes a while back and I want to use it for the portable I'm making, however the cartridge slot has seemed to stop reading the cartridges. I have cleaned both the cartridges and the slot itself, but the situation never improves.
Is there any way to fix this, or should I just buy the Retro entertainment system? I am worried though that they may just be the same thing repackaged, as they both look very similar, and I don't want to encounter the same problem twice.
EDIT: Thanks for the info. But I'm not sure it's actually fried. It powers on, and it comes up with a colored screen. I know each color meant something, so I looked it up. The one that most often came up was one that was unidentified. The other one (which came up once in a blue moon) showed a color which meant the cartridge or slot was dirty, which is weird, since I cleaned both thoroughly.
But if I can't so anything, what would be the best noac for me to use? I don't want to hand-wire a superjoy, mind you, I mean one like the yobo. The retro that I mentioned is highly regarded, and its only $14, but I am worried about space and build quality. Is there one that's smaller and works better? Is the retro duo any good? I wouldn't mind putting both consoles in a portable if I could.
I'm glad I'm Notyu........maybe.
