I have Konami cartridge(Nemesis 3) thats broken, I have cleaned it and tested it with different machines. It only gives a white screen. There is something loose inside. Does anyone know how to open the cartridge without breaking it. I think I can get the label off with a hair dryer, but after that I don't know what to do, it seems they did not use screws in them. I have another one that has holes in the label where the clips or some kind of plastic screws are. It would be great if there was a video about it online.

You will probably damage the cartridge clips if you follow the tutorial from Passion-MSX because two clip are missing.

The tutorial below is better.

Don't use a screwdriver to avoid damaging the cartridge, use a thin plastic cards like Japanese phone cards.
Use a hair dryer to unstick a little the corners of sticker. It's more easily by heating it.

Tip: Here's a better article on how to open the SCC cartridge without damaging the label. It's in Portuguese, but we even have browsers with built-in translators these days, haven't we? ;)
