Question about Nintendo Super NES Console

1 Answer

Game turns on, but can't get it to start.

My Super NES works on all my games expect one. When I put my Mario Paint in, the game comes on to the opening screen where you are supposed to push start. When I push sart or any other button, nothing happens. I have tried all my controllers, and nothing happens. My controllers work fine with all of my other games, so it must be just the Mario Paint game. I have never had this problem before. Usually if a game doesn't work, it just won't turn on. Help!

The cartridge is probably dirty. Take a q-tip with some windex or rubbing alcohol and and scrub the connectors. Go over it again with a dry q-tip and repeat until no more black comes off. If that doesnt work, you might have to buy a "nintendo tool" which are plentiful on ebay and open the cartridge. Something might have gotten inside. Gently wipe the card with rubbing alcohol and q-tip and let it dry. Close it back up and test!

good luck.

This Product will not operate when connected to a device which makes unauthorized copies


I have had this message before with my SNES console whenever I had tried to play super Mario all stars for the super NES console it means that the game pack is either a fake or a copied one. I had bought another Mario all stars at Luke games and that message didn't come up because it was a real one that I had purchased.

General Game Pak Troubleshooting (NES and Super NES)


Note: It is possible that the problem you have may be game play related. For example, if you cannot defeat a particular enemy, or are missing an item you need to complete an area, the problem is likely game play related and there is nothing wrong with your game. Please check our game play help for assistance. If the problem you are experiencing is with just one game, please follow the steps below. If the problem is with all games, please visit the troubleshooting section for the system you have, by clicking here.

  1. Check for Unlicensed products. Make sure that you're using only licensed products with your Nintendo system. Unlicensed products are not tested for compatibilty and may not work correctly with all games. Try playing the game without the unlicensed accessory.
  2. Insert the Game Pak into the system. The Game Pak label should be facing the front of the machine (or facing up if you are using an original NES).
  3. Make sure the Game Pak firmly clicks down into place.
  4. Remove all accessories to see if the Game Pak works correctly without the accessory. If the game does work correctly once the accessory is removed, then the game pak and the accessory may not be compatible. Check the game pak instruction manual.
  5. Check the instruction manual for the game to see if it requires any special accessories to operate (such as the Super Scope, NES Zapper, SNES Mouse, etc.).
  6. Do not blow into your Game Paks or systems. The moisture in your breath can corrode and contaminate the pin connectors.
If these steps do not eliminate the symptoms you're experiencing with your game, we recommend purchasing a replacement from a retailer or online auction site that carries older products. For more information, click here

I'd say it sounds like an issue with either the controller or the port on the system. My advice to you would be to try a different controller, and try switching ports on the console. The games should be fine, though.
