Oh yeah the Dendy uses the same cartridges and thus the same connector. Too bad it's Russia only, Russia is so much closer to Sweden than Hong kong.

Anyway DigitalxxxFr34k you could try testing the connector with an multimeter first and see if it really is faulty before you go ordering spare parts.

sadly i don't have a  multimeter nor would i know how to operate it,  i work on computers, but i know those well enough that all i need is a screw driver, and a few pieces of software , everything else i learned how to do  through videos on youtube  or google, i diagnose issues related to what issues i have, like replacing a DVD drive in my xbox360, or the laser in my ps2, or disabling the lock out chip and replacing the 72 pin connector, in my NES. as soon as i seen it done, and then do it my self, i never forget how to do it, written, or drawings don't help me much for some reason, just how my brain has worked since i was a kid lol.  makes life at times tough. oh and if any one does not want to type out my full SN, you can call me Digi or Jeff Smiley

OK Digi, a multimeter is really handy even for less complicated everyday stuff like checking batteries with the voltmeter function or testing if cables are faulty or not with the ohmmeter function. If you are gonna repair your Famicom it will probably be very handy. You can find a decent digital multimeter for not too much and tutorials in laylanguage online.

Yeah that's the way you gotta do it. Relying on others all the time won't always work.

Unfortunately I recall that the connector was soldered to the main board so you might have to desolder it on the underside in order to change it.  Octorok

Oh one more thing. Working on that carpet might be a bad idea since it may cause static electricity which might be bad for the board.

PCB looks pretty clean as slot as well. Pins in slot ok. Try to clean slot better - there might be some oxydation.

you got a point, i should probably  invest in one, and its a cloth that i use to lay on my foot stool when i work on something, i don't have space for a work bench, and soldering is out of the question, if anything i will replace the whole thing i already have 80'sFreak offering me the guts, but he is also trying to help me with the issue on the fhis one, just in case its fixable,  i don't know,  i would be willing to sell the guts on this famicom to some one who can fix it, soldering is really not a strong skill, i got a iron, and a pump, but im  not very good at it -.- looks like its hopeless really, the seller i bought from here said it all worked, i wanna know what happened from there to here 3 games are pixelated and 2 games don't work at all, it all came from the same guy, the super famicom i bought from him tho works flawless

not paper, use some rough cloth also clean carts. That works in 99% cases. The rest is damaged PCB.

ok well i used one of those clothes you use to clean LCD screens, shined a flashlight in  the slot, and double checked the carts pins, the one i manage to disassemble the pins are clean and still the same pixel mix, so i think you might be right thanks for your help alot, and thank you every one for the advise but i think i need new guts, sucks being my first famicom -.-

I would still try an emery board.  It'll fit inside the slot and can scrape off what the cloth usually can't get.

I can see the pins quite well when I shined a flash lite in it, there's nothing on them, they are shiney look new, I think a connection some were with in the pcb is what the issue is the seller is sending me a guts for one so I can hope nothing goes wrong this time lol ill keep that in mind if I notice some stuff I can't get off the pins by doing the credit card cloth trick

P.s. just for the record, I don't think senseiman was trying to deceive you or rip you off. It was most likely an honest mistake or shipping damage etc, he's a nice guy and wouldn't deliberately mess you around. Smiley

It still sucks that your Famicom isn't working though, so I feel your pain and hope it gets resolved soon.

he is a nice guy, he gave me advise of what i should do and where i should go to try to get this working, i know he didn't do it on purpose,  and i will continue to buy stuff from him,  he said it worked, and it didn't weather he got lucky with it, or something happened between there and here, and we worked it out, and im very thankful to his kindness, when really he did not have to go out of his way Smiley

Ummm one more thing. Do you have soldering iron? If so, resolder slot. No need to desolder it, just resolder every single pin.

You can not fix/mod things without tools. Get the tools first.

You don't really need any soldering skills for what 80sFreak is talking about. He means just touch each pin with the tip of the soldering iron for a second to melt the solder. Sometimes the solder points lose contact after so many years, but reheating them can repair the connection without doing something as difficult as replacing the whole slot.
