You could always try cleaning the cartridge's metal connectors. To do that you would need to get 91% or better rubbing alcohol, put a bit on a Q-tip, and gently clean out the metal in the cartridge. But a warning: You absolutely must have 91% or better rubbing alcohol; using any rubbing alcohol less than 91% will actually destroy the cartridge.

It might be because you have an HDTV. 'Duck Hunt" was originally made for RGB regular TVs; the plasma in yours may be messing up the aiming process. Try aiming higher or lower than usual.

Oh wait, I thought you meant that Duck Hunt was on its own cartridge for some reason, I wasn't thinking >_>

It doesn't work with newer TV's, don't know why. I tried it on my mom's plasma screen. Use an older TV, see if it helps.
