Trouble Starting Dragon Warrior
I recently bought a Yobo Neo Fami, it plays great, but I can't get Dragon Warrior
to start. Is it the Neo Fami? or is it just that the game is bad... All I get is a blank black screen, I don't know what to do.
Try cleaning the contacts on the game. To do this, you'll need a lint-free rag, cotton swabs (Q-Tips), and a bottle of rubbing alcohol. If that does not work and the game is clean then try it in an actual NES system. Hope this helps and good luck!
do this: Turn the game upside down, and LOOK inside at the connectors on the GAME tself. I know you have already cleaned it, but i clean games, and there is still a great amount of oxidization or whatever it is called on them. If the contacts are gold, shiny, and look like heaven, it could be somthing wrong with your wannabe-nes, or somthing internal in the Dragon Warrior
game. If you have already tried it on a normal nes, then just buy another copy of DW its a common game.
The contacts are gold and shiny, but I think there is a contact missing on the back right side of the cart, I only payed 5 for it, so its not a big loss, and I can return it, and get another one, and then another DW...
thats probably the answer then dude. You can usually pick up a copy of DW nice and cheap.
There isn't a contact on the right side (on the back) of my cart either, but it plays fine. If you have the tool to take the cart apart, do so and get a better look at the conectors. Even if there is just a speck of oxidation on one of them if could keep it from playing. I've had to take a knife and scrape the connectors on several carts where there was oxidization. They all ran fine after I got them clean.
