My VB, regardeless of the cart played, starts to show artifacts (random pixels of varying brightness) & screen glitches/errors after 10 or 15 minutes of play. I’ve tried aligning the lens and fresh batteries but the artifacts still appear and progressively get worse until I power off & restart the unit. Any idea on what causes this?

Hmm, sometimes problems like this are the result of dirty contacts, but since it affects all your games maybe it’s the pins on the system itself. So try cleaning those with some rubbing alcohol or something. But I don’t think that’s the problem, it sounds more like it has something to do with the display itself being slightly misaligned or something, and I wouldn’t know how to fix that…

Fixed it. Sprayed some contact cleaner in the cartridge slot while depressing the plastic guard (to expose the pins). Works great now!

Really? That’s great to hear.
