SNES Black Screen...

Well, my $8 purchase is a bust so far.

I've cleaned all contacts on game cartridges and console. Power light turns on, but no sound and a black screen occur.

I've ordered some security bits to take her apart, but they won't be here for about a week. So, once i get this thing apart what do I need to look at / replace?

You gave it a thuro cleaning and it still doesn't work properly.. And the power light comes on... It sounds like either a pin connector problem or a motherboard issue.

I found this. Might help get your wheels turning on the situation.

Well, I took apart every single piece of my SNES. I found dried coke,hair,dust, and other crap all over everything. I spent 2 hours cleaning the contacts and board with alcohol and it now works like a charm! I feel like a boss lol.
