Yeah, I'd like a top-loader too, if just to be the completist. But really, all I've done is taken a $2 front loader NES (which can hook into my a/v switch box - NICE), and cleaned the contacts a bit using good ol fashioned rubbing alcohol. This really didn't seem to do much, as a unit that sat in a friend's garage (read: layers of dirt) works 100% with all my games. It's the GAMES that generally seem to go kaput here. Again with the rubbing alcohol, 3 or 4 cotton swaps dipped in it per game, and some really vigorous rubbing (if the swap doesnt come out black at least once, you didn't rub hard enuff :). I swear - 7 units so far, and not a single game/console combo that doesn't work without jiggling.
