  24. Been gaming since 1979. Have used alcohol and qtip for decades. I still buy N64, Snes games, and always clean them first with this method. Awesome vid for those who may not know. I also use the 1up console cleaner cartridge for my N64 and Snes. Bought on Amazon, $19.

  25. so i recently bought a copy of mario 64 on n64. and i noticed that the background gets blurry a lot! whenever i move around a lot in the game or make sudden turns, a faint line seems to split the top from the bottom screen in a way. it is a jarring experience that i never noticed while watching people play on original hardware in youtube vids. could this be related to a dirty cartridge? the game turns on right away every time and the save function works so i am not sure what could be causing it. i have a bunch of other n64 games that i use on my n64 and never noticed this problem with any of them. i have the n64 plugged into a flat screen. and i changed my screen size to 4:3 but it still shows no improvement. the game is still playable but me being a perfectionist, it is very distracting when that blurring happens. can somebody please help???

  26. Windex is also a good alternative

  27. I'v tried this, yes it did clean it, but after a few minutes, the cartridge would fritz & blank out, & I'd have to resort to blowing or spiting on the cartridge. Still didn't last very long. Is it the cartage or the console I have to work on? If there is corrosion on the leads, how do I fix that?
