    I have an original SNES that is in working condition and I’m considering replacing the contactors and doing an over-all tune-up/cleaning. Is this something a novice could tackle? What parts should be replaced? Any feedback?

    Two words: big cojones. [​IMG] That's somewhat of a collector's item, is it not?

    Hey, I also own an X-box, PS2 and a GC. But the SNES had certain classic titles like FFIII, CronoTrigger & Earthbound that will never be duplicated. Well…except on a PC Rom emulator…but that’s another story. [​IMG]

    No feedback huh? Oh well…this is obviously the wrong forum for this thread.

    I've repaired a couple of blue screen NES consoles, but thats not quite the same. If your SNES is working (mine are) then there is no need to do anything. If the contacts aren't connecting well they're probably just dirty and most game shops sell a kit for cleaning them. I think its just a mild abrashive on a stick which you run in and out of the contacts.
