NES Cleaning Kit

Typed out by Chris Pepin --------------------------------------------------------------------- NES CLEANING KIT manual by NINTENDO --------------------------------------------------------------------- Thank you for purchasing the NES Cleaning Kit(TM). By regularly using this cleaning kit, you will extend the life of your Nintendo Entertainment System(R) Control Deck(TM) and Game Paks. IMPORTANT Please read the instructions carefully before using your cleaner. Failure to read and follow these instructions may result in damage to your Control Deck(TM). If, after reading these instructions, you have any questions about use of the NES Cleaning Kit(TM), please call our Consumer Service Department at the number below: NEED HELP? Nintendo Consumer Service Hotline 1-800-255-3700 Mon.-Sat., 4:00 a.m.-10:00 p.m., Pacific Time (TM) and (R) are trademarks of Nintendo of America Inc. (C) 1989 Nintendo ------------------------------------------------------------------- A. CLEANING GAME PAKS ) Game Paks should be cleaned at least once a month or whenever they become dirty. 1. Remove the cleaning wand from the plastic bag. 2. With your finger, apply a small amount of water* to the blue end of the cleaner until it is slightly damp. *If possible, distilled water should be used. OR For maximum cleaning effect, use a mixture of 1 teaspoon isopropyl alcohol and 1 teaspoon water. 3. Rub BOTH sides of the Game Pak edge connector by pressing against it gently with the blue end of the cleaner. Move the cleaner side to side to clean all of the edge connector pins. (See Drawing A.) (Drawing A just shows a cleaning wand being inserted into a game pak and being moved from side to side.) 4. With the white end of the cleaner, gently dry both sides of the Game Pak edge connector. 5. Check the connector pins on both sides of the Game Pak. They should be clean and have a shiny gold finish. If not, repeat steps 3 and 4. B. CLEANING THE CONTROL DECK ) The Control Deck should be cleaned at least once a month or whenever dirty. Clean the Control Deck at the same time you clean your Game Paks for best results. WARNING--NEVER CLEAN YOUR CONTROL DECK WHILE IT IS PLUGGED IN! 1. Unplug the power cord from the Control Deck at either the wall outlet (transformer) or the back of the Control Deck. 2. Open the NES cleaning cartridge by gently pressing on the tab on the side and lifting off the lid. Remove the flat Control Deck cleaning card. (See Drawing B.) ------------------------------------------------------------------- (Drawing B just shows the location of the cleaning card inside the cleaner. The drawing is pretty pointless in my opinion.) (Drawing C just shows the cleaning kit being inserted inside the Control Deck and arrows showing that the cleaner should be pulled back and forth inside the Control Deck in order to clean it.) 3. Using your finger, apply a small amount of water* to both sides of one of the long edges of the card until it is slightly damp. *If possible, distilled water should be used. OR For maximum cleaning effect, use a mixture of 1 teaspoon isopropyl alcohol and 1 teaspoon water. 4. Reassemble the cleaning cartridge with the damp edge of the card facing out. Insert the cleaner into the Control Deck as you would a Game Pak. Push the cleaner into the down position and move the cleaner in and out 5-10 times. (During the cleaning process, the cleaner will move forward and backward about 3/4".) (See Drawing C.) 5. Remove the cleaning cartridge and allow the Control Deck to dry for at least 1 HOUR before plugging it back in and turning it on. ADDITIONAL HINTS ) After cleaning your Game Paks and Control Deck many times, the cleaning surfaces may become dirty. Replace the dirty parts with the replacement parts provided or wash them with liquid dish soap. Rinse the parts very thoroughly and allow to dry. ) Additional Cleaning Kit parts can be ordered from Nintendo by using the following order form or by calling Nintendo Consumer Service at 1-800-255-3700. ) The cleaning wand and extra two cleaning tips can be stored in the extra compartments found inside the cleaning cartridge. ------------------------------------------------------------------- CAUTION If the Cleaner cartridge becomes locked in the Down position, be sure that the Cleaner cartridge is pushed in all the way and then simply press down on the cartridge carrier as show, and allow to pop up. (There is a picture of the cleaner in the control deck with an arrow pushing down on the cleaner.) ------------------------------------------------------------------- NES CLEANING KIT CONSUMER PARTS LIST & ORDER FORM Nintendo Part No. 18528 Part Name REPLACEMENT CLEANING KIT PARTS (Includes 2 cleaning cards and 4 cleaning tips) Price $8.00 Qty. _____ Amount of Purchase _____ SUBTOTAL _____ WASHINGTON STATE RESIDENTS ADD 8.1% SALES TAX _____ POSTAGE & HANDLING ($2 for order of $4 or more, $0.50 for orders of less than $4) _____ 99004 *FOR EXPEDITED SHIPPING SERVICE (2 DAY AIR FREIGHT) PLEASE ADD AN ADDITIONAL $2.50 TOTAL AMOUNT DUE _____ ******************************************************************* TO ORDER BY PHONE (REQUIRES VISA OR MASTERCARD) Call: 1-800-255-3700, 4:00 A.M. to 10:00 P.M., Pacific time (Monday to Saturday).
