    Also beware of the console's INSANE death grip on NES games. My RetroDuo's NES cartridge slot actually got DAMAGED because of the death grip. At one point, one of the pins bent so far up it wasn't touching its respective contact point on any cartridge, so I suggest you loosen the cartridge slot.

    I press on the pins with a flat-head screwdriver as wide as the pins on the cartridge slot then press down on the slot in order to loosen the pins.

    Perhaps he means pushing the pins inside the plastic housing... (basically, pushing horizontally)

    Just push the pins straight down. That's all you need to do. Just don't push 'em too far otherwise, they won't make contact with the card-edge on the cartridge.

    Make sure your screwdriver isn't too wide, otherwise you'll have a hard time fitting the screwdriver into the pins. Get a thin flat-head screwdriver.
