TSB 17 NES Cartridge Help Problem - Doesnt work

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

This is the 2nd time now this has happened to me. I returned the first cartridge after it only worked for about an hour. After I put it in my NES and took it out 3-4 times to play other games it stopped working. Now the 2nd TSB17 I received does not work. I put it in played 2 games and now, in the middle of the game it randomly restarted itself. Now when I try to turn the game on, the cartage will not even start up, it just has a white line across the screen. The power button just flashes. My NES has a new 72 pin connector installed in it. I have over 80 NES original cartridges and I can randomly grab any 1 of the 80 games and they will work perfectly the first time. I put in any other of my NES carts they all start right up instantly with no issues. I put in the TSB17 and get a white line. Please let me know if this is a known problem and if there is a fix? I have looked everywhere on the net and cant find any information on the subject. I also see they have stopped selling the cartridge does this mean there are know problems with the cartridges?

 

Thanks,

 

Steve

(not sure how versed you are with the NES console so I apologize if these suggestions are too basic)

 

I haven't had any issues with my TSB homebrew-carts (14-18). The flashing red light is either poor pin connector, the lockout chip or a bad cart. The white line has been an issue in games like SMB3 or homebrews, especially on the top loader.

 

From a troubleshooting perspective, if all your other games work fine and the TSB17 cart is the only one giving you issues then it's likely the cart. If the cart was bad and the vendor repaired it and sent the same cart back the problem is likely to persist. Do you know if the cart is a "donor" cart or a brand new cart? I received one cart which came from a donor where the pins were very dirty and required cleaning before it ran properly (meaning intermittent graphical issues or would simply hang). Just shine a flashlight and see if the connectors are dirty, cleaning is easy enough.

 

I've disabled the lockout chip on my consoles which I would recommend to regardless given the older consoles sometimes identifies games as unofficial thus giving the red blinking light. It's easy enough to do and shouldn't take more than 20 minutes.

      i just had a great conversation with dave and suggested that the top online tecmoer for the year should get a free entry into madison, he agreed that it makes sense so said yes 
       
      how do we decide whos the online tecmoer of the year? simple - whoever has the most league titles, online tournament wins, and championship game appearances
       
      each league or tournament win isnt gonna be as much as the next. for example - a hstl title is worth the most reward points, it all just depends 
       
      HOPEFULLY BY ADDING A LITTLE INCENTIVE THIS WILL BRING MORE ATTENTION TO ONLINE TECMO 
       
      GTFO - champion = 2 reward points,  runner up = 1 reward points
      WTF -  champion = 8 reward points , runner up = 4 reward points 
      TTL - champion = 8 reward points, runner up = 4 reward points 
      TTLM - champion = 8 reward points, runner up = 4 reward points
      HSTL - champion = 10 reward points, runner up = 5 reward points
      NTGL - champion = 5 reward points, runner up = 2 reward points
       
      tournament reward points  - will be based on how many competitors and level  of the competition. example - this year thunderdome - champion = 10 reward points, runner up = 5 reward points
       
       
      Any questions or things that need to be changed like the amount of points each league is worth please let me know

      My TSB NCAA19 is for this upcoming year.  I used Phil Steele's College Football 2018 Preview for my pre-season rankings, depth charts, formations, player names and jersey numbers.  I'm a fan of the original Tecmo Super Bowl so I make roms true to that version which I call "vanilla".  This rom is complete and I will probably not do an update during or after the season.  Enjoy!

      I have taken all the QB's and separated them into four categories. These are based on major rules changes to the game. After 94, 94 to 77, 76 to 65, and before 65. Since Tecmo was made in the 94-77 category, it is the baseline stat.
       
       
      Accuracy = Completion Percentage is determined by COMP%
      Every QB who played mostly after 94 gets a 4% decrease
      Every QB who played mostly before 76-66 gets a 6% increase
      Every QB who played mostly before 65 gets a 8% increase
      81= 63%<
      75= 61-62%
      69= 59-60%
      63= 57-58%
      56= 55-56%
      50= 53-54%
      44= 51-52%
      38= 49-50%
      31= 47-48%
      25= 45-46%
      19= 43-44%
      13= <42%
       
      Pass control = is determined by INT%. 
      Every QB who played mostly after 94 gets a 20% increase
      Every QB who played mostly between 76-66 gets a 30% decrease
      Every QB who played mostly before 65 gets a 40% decrease
      81= <2.2%
      75= 2.3-2.5%

      19= 4.9-5.1%
      13= 5.3%<

      Arm Strength is determined by AY/C.
      Every QB who played mostly after 94 gets a 2% increase

      Avoid Pass Block is based on Y/A.
