How do I fix nintendo super nes console that resets during gameplay?

Well I think that the ac adapter is causing the type of a problem because the cord on the ac adapter that allows the SNES to give it its power in order to work is loose. Try using another ac adapter too see if it will make a difference.

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.

Well I had a problem with my super NeS console not turning on so I tried a new ac adapter and it was fine after that it could be a bad adapter like I had I hope or the worst case is that the console has died then.

The dc jack where you plug in the ac adaptor is worn out which is why it is chipping and also why you can't make a good enough connection for the ac adaptor so you can turn on the Super Nintendo.

What needs to happen is your SNES needs to have the old dc jack taken off and a new one soldered on.

If you can find another broken SNES that has a good working dc jack then take if off of that one and solder it onto yours and your SNES will work like new.

My n64 wont work

Well I am currently having a similar problem with my aqua N64 console and my black N64 console. So it could be the ac adapter that could be the issue because Im having the same problem sort of with my SNES console so I brought a new ac adapter for my SNES and it works. It could be the same issue with my N64 consoles every thing looks fine on the inside so it has to be the ac adapter then. Or it might of had died on you. Video games consoles are funny at this they are fine the day before and they are not working the next day.

First you have to find out if the problem is with the AC adapter or the console.
Look at the console where the AC adapter plugs in. You should see a round plastic part in the middle of the receptacle with a small hole in the center. If it is broken or missing the problem is most likely the console. In this situation the easiest thing to do is find a new one from a reputable seller. The broken one is worth 10-15 on eBay.
If it looks good take the console and AC adapter to Radio Shack and have them test it for you. If the AC adapter is no good they should have a replacement available.
