No, not at all. There is a fresh pin connector in there, but in fact, pushing down the cart into the system is purely cosmetic. Anyone can try it for themselves; as long as the cart is firmly inserted, it will work exactly the same pushed down or not. My purpose in not pushing it down was simply to display the cart label more clearly.

I have 3 systems and one is diesected. I also watched the been heck show which shows a replacement and shows why it wares out. My systems require me to push it down and the been heak show shows exactually why pushing it down is a requirement. So your replacement pic connector must be setup more like a top loader in a vhs system which mind you is kick ass because that means your gaming machiene with last 10 times as long

I was trying to remember if I ever messed around with not pushing down the cartridge back when the original pin connector was still in there, and then I realized -The Game Genie. With that thing the cart was actually sticking partway out of the machine, making it impossible to push down the cart. What I also remember about the Game Genie, though, was how you could actually hear the tines in the connector squeal as you put it in or out, because it was so thick, which I think was meant to compensate for not being able to push down on the cart and still ensure a solid connection. So, with the new pin connector having fairly tight and fresh tines, its probably the same kind of deal, because it definitely holds carts a lot more firmly than the original connector did.
