I may be completely off base here but it seams like it may be relevant. I always am getting systems without power supply. i got a genesis once and i hooked it up and it worked fine other than a humming in the audio. I didn't figure it out till my dad took a look. when i made the new power supply I thought i got a dc power supply witch is what the genesis and famicom use but i had a ac power supply. I quickly swapped it out for a dc one and no more humming. So just make sure your power supply is dc for your famicom.

I use an old adjustable tenma iron with a simple solder sucker. as famiac said sometimes the best thing is to re flow the pins again with new solder and a dab of flux doesn't hurt ether. also when I am desoldering something I use high heat but stay on a pin for a very short time. this way the solder all melts quickly and I get get it out easily. Just watch you don't heat the pins for to long or you will burn off the solder pads from the board. The pins that  gohanX was talking about being stubborn were probably some ground pins.  Since they normally connect to larger pads on the board they take a wee bit longer to heat and all the solder doesn't come out in one go. When this happens I normally apply a wee bit more solder and give it a second or two more time to heat up before trying to pull the solder up. Also after the solder is removed take an exacto knife or a small flat head screw driver and apply a little bit of tension on the pin to make sure it is free floating in the hole. This helps free any small bits of solder from sticking to the sides and potentially tearing out the solder pads when you remove the chip.

How about shmups like Twinbee or Salamander? Or that game that was called S.C.A.T. or Final Mission in Japan.

Cool thanks for the fast replies guys. Yeah I am trying to swap out Zelda 2 NES chips into a famicom cart.
Looks like final fantasy or zelda 1 famicom cart might work but I am researching whats gonna work for sure right now.
I know every ones wondering why would I ruin a zelda 2 cart and the reason being is the actual zelda 2 cart is all broken but the PCB is in good working order and I make very very good reproduction labels and always wanted a zelda 2 for famicom on a cart which was never released. so if anyone might know which PCB would work for sure please chime in and let me know.it'll save me the time and hassle and there may be a free repro or game of my choice in it for someone.
Thanks again all..

So my question is how could I make a DC shell look like one of those? Could I use a spray matte or would it have to be a different method?

Damn it you snagged the other metroid right out from under me... Cry I had been bidding on that one and the other one the guy was selling.. The orange color cart he was selling. its ok though I will find another one some day  Link There was a pink cart zelda 2 on ebay as well but he was selling it for $135 plus $45 for shipping and there was no way I was going to pay that for a clone or reproduction when I could make one of those my self with real nintendo chips.
