What causes Nintendo Super NES game console to turn off when playing?


It might be a faulty AC Adapter Cable that stops working when you move the cable or it might be a damaged AC Adapter Port on your console(small plastic part broken off) that will power it off when you move the console.

My AV IN cable broke off in the tv, what can I do to get it out?


You can remove a piece of broken (AV)hdmi cable with a little heat, a steady hand and patience. Pins can break due to mishandling of the equipment, a stressed and failed jack, or aggressive RCA removal techniques. Most methods for removing an RCA center pin will result in damage to the jack. However, one key method almost never fails.

Hi, I am having a problem with my rf adapter for my sega genesis specifically the end is broken off how should i fix it?


  • Well, if it broke off right flush with the pack then you would have to split the pack and re-soldier the wires on. This can be a big pain. No easy way but to carefully split it open. The original adapters sort of split in half.
  • There is a little flex part on the end of the wire before the actual adapter. If it broke off there then you can carefully splice off the little end piece lengthwise making sure not to cut the wire itself.
  • When that is removed then you can splice the two wires together. I recommend soldiering them together and insulating with shrink tube. Electric tape will work temporarily (see photo)

I just bought a super nintendo off ebay and i went to plug in a ac adapter for it but i looked and i saw that the metal piece that sticks out from the system that goes in the ac adapter plug is missing all...


Well the round metal part where the rf switch is supposed to go into is broken off so you couls use the av cables for SNES and N64 instead of using the rf switch or you could of bought a crappy console then.

Can't turn wii back on


Did you unplug it from the Wii, or from the Wall Outlet? You need to unplug it from the wall outlet, not the Wii. If you haven't unplugged it from the wall outlet and left it unplugged for 5 to 10 minutes, then unplug it from the wall outlet and leave unplugged for a good 5 to 10 minutes.

This is a common problem with the Wii. Even if it's hooked up to a surge protector. If there was a power surge, or the power went out, etc...anything, this will happen. The problem is with the AC adapter, not the Wii itself, so power to the AC adapter needs to be cut off.

There is a circuit inside the AC adapter that needs to be reset. Unplug the AC adapter from the wall/surge protector outlet. Don't unlpug it from the Wii, it has to be at the outlet. You have to kill power to the adapter.

Unlpug it from the wall/surge protector outlet, and leave it unplugged for 5 or 10 minutes. This will kill power to the AC adapter, and give the circuit time to reset. When you plug the adapter back into the outlet after 5 or 10 minutes, the red led on the front should be lit up.

You most likely need to reset the AC adapter.

This is a common problem with the Wii. Even if it's hooked up to a surge protector. If there was a power surge, or the power went out, etc...anything, this will happen. You plug it back in, the power comes on, but it appears dead. The problem is with the AC adapter, not the Wii itself.

i found you can take a small flathead screwdriver like the tiny one you would repair eyeglasses with and carefully bend the prongs slightly inward.i assume this made then come in contact with the ground in the center of the power adapter.

Plastic part broke off my super nintendo where you plug the power cord in the back.


This is a common problem with the original version of the SNES console.
Unfortunately the fix is not an easy one. I fix these in my shop but I have done dozens of them. It requires soldering. There are two ways to fix it. You can replace the broken part which is soldered to the motherboard or you can solder on wires for a new receptacle.
To get the replacement part you would need to buy a broken SNES off eBay or somewhere and disassemble it to remove the needed part. If you find a busted SNES with a working motherboard you MIGHT be able to just swap it. I say might because I have found at least three versions of motherboards in these things and the mounting points inside the case are different for each of them.
To bypass the plug altogether you would need to find a new plug at Radio Shack and wire it up to the motherboard and attach it to the case so that the plug can be hooked up. You could also cut the plug off of the AC adapter and solder the adapter wires directly to the motherboard.
Like I said it is not an easy fix. It also has a high probability of not working if you do not know what you are doing. It might be best to just buy a working console from a reputable seller and sell yours as broken.
Good Luck.
