Question about Nintendo NES Console
I bought a refurbished NES four years ago, and have very recently (the last month) begun to have audio problems. I am using an original RF adapter, and have the console connected directly to my TV (not through a VCR or other device). The console is set to ch 3, as is my TV. I have a game in the console and hit the power button. The picture quality and game play is fine. However, the sound is distored; by distored, I mean that I can only hear loud static and voices/music from a TV channel, even the picture is clear and the game play fine. The audio of the games is not audible at all. Is this a problem with the RF adapter? Could it be a problem with the console itself? Any information or suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you.
Try switching both the tv and the rf switch to ch.4, if that doesn't help make sure that there is nothing connected to the in port on the rf switch and try it again, also make sure the connector of the rf switch has a straight pin and not bent too badly, also make sure the pin does not look tarnished/corroded in any way, also check the connector at the end that connects to the nes, i would try changing the rf adapter before the console, if the power cord is in good shape everything else should be easy to find a replacement for. if you hae a snes try changing the rf adapters, or try using rca type cables, the out ports are on the side of the nes and most likely on the back or front of your tv.
