Disabling the region lockout chip is necessary when playing out of region games. The reason is because the “out of region” game is communicating to your NES, saying that it is not supposed to function. The procedure of disabling the lockout chip can be found HERE.

A video procedure on how to open your NES can be found here. There are many like it on the net, but this one is adequate for most regions.
