    Here is my situation:

    I need to repair a SNES system (replace the 62 pin connector) and have been looking online for a guide to do that. I have been unable to find one. I know I need the special bit to open the system, and I have also replace 72 pin connectors on the NES. I want to know if anyone here has done it, and if they have, could they tell me or point me to a guide to do so. I have checked google and found nothing. Thanks!

    I've never had to replace any part of my SNES, but doing the 72-pin connector on the NES couldn't be easier. There aren't really any tips to give. You just take some screws out, pull out the old connector, and put the new one in. Easiest console modification I've ever done.

    yeah, replacing the connector in a nes is stupidly easy. it just slides right off and the new one slides on. the snes one i can see being harder though, it'd likely involve solder
