Get a new 72 pin reader. Chances are that this one is dying/too corroded. Clean your games as well and DON'T BLOW IN THEM!

It could be that your 72 pin connector is faulty, which is a known issue.

The pins could be corroded, filthy or they lost tension after all those years, which results in losing connection with the cartridge.

The best choice is to replace that connector, even if it's only a preventive measure.

As for cleaning the game cartridges, just take a bunch of q-tips and a "high concentration" rubbing alcohol.
