You can also hook up your SNES to the coaxial input to a VCR or modulator that you can get at retail stores then run the RCA cables to the TV set. From that point it's a matter of selecting the input with whatever remote, or making sure the modulator is plugged in. I use one similar to a Philips P71153.

Easy!! Im a game collector and i still have a SNES. The solution is simple

If you have a digital box then that means that a cable goes to the box and from the box a cable goes to your Tv. What you should do is unscrew that cable that goes to your Tv and you will screw the SNES coax cable notice that the SNES cable has and input coax cable entrance aswell so you can screw the Tv cable back in to it so you wont miss watching your fav channels after you finish playing awesome classic games on the SNES

HOW DO I HOOK UP MY SUPER NINTENDO TO A TV THAT DOESN'T HAVE AUDIO/VIDEO HOOK UPS?


You need an RF modulator or a modulator and a A/V switch (to avoid Daisy-chaining the game system to the DVD/VCR). These are available at many electronics shops (Radio Shack, etc.)

Here is one RF modulator: http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2103095 . There are many more out there; however, these days some stores may only have them in their online inventory.

I hope this helps.

My Super Nintendo is working, but won't show up on my relatively new television, can some one help me please? is there a lead or something I need to buy? thanks


Do you have your TV set to the "TV" input? There may be inputs such as "Video 1", "Video 2", "HDMI 1", "HDMI 2", "Component 1", "Component 2", etc., but the input you will want to have selected is "TV" (this is usually done by hitting a button labelled "Input" or "Video" on the TV remote). Once you are on that input, go to channel 3 (type in "03" on the remote), then turn on the SNES. It should now display.
If this doesn't work, double check the plug you have connected to on the back of the TV, it should read something like "Cable In" (not "Cable Out").
If you have checked all of that and everything is setup correctly, it is possible that you have a bad RF adapter (the grey box that connects the SNES to the TV). If this is the case you can buy one online for around $5 - $10; just google "RF adapter SNES".

The connection for input from tv aerial to tv is broken


Your Super Nintendo has two outputs, Unless you have the Mini Super Nintendo.

But since the mini is rare lets stick with the regular one, If you are talking about the cable that plugs into your television, The one that plugs in to coax (where the cable box would go) Should look like a black cord with a black or gray box on the end and screws onto the back of the television,
If thats the part thats broken have no fear, There should be another input that looks like (`````#``````) (_______) Im not an artist sorry lol, Anyways this cord has three wires on the end red, white & yellow.
The mini if im not mistaken only has one output, Anyways if you have a Gamecube or Nintendo 64 that cord will also work on the Super Nintendo.
Also make sure when plugged in and turned on that there is a small red light on the front indicating that it's on. If you need a wire you can get one here http://www.amazon.com/Nintendo-AV-Cable-Super/dp/B000035Y6B/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1286967890&sr=8-1
Amazon has them for around 5 bucks including shipping.

No colour


Hi, Definitely a TV issue for me. Changed Wii to another input on TV and resolved situation. Need now to check how to get my TV to recognize colour on AV2 & 3 because I prefer to keep DVD input as AV1!

I had to use the (RCA) video inputs and not the component inputs. These are the ones made for video games. If you want to use the component input (Component cables are Red,White Red, Green, Blue). If you don't have any, you should be able to purchase them at your local electronics store like Radio Shack or Best Buy. Hope this helps, read below:

TV (This is your cable connection or TV; coax)
Component 1 (Must use component cables for this input/output; Red and White for audio, Red, Blue, Green for Video)
Component 2 (Must use component cables for this input/output; Red and White for audio, Red, Blue, Green for Video)
HDMI 1 (HDMI Cable)
HDMI 2 (HDMI Cable)
Video 1 (Must Use RCA cables, or RCA jacks; Red and White for Audio, Yellow for Video)
Video 2 (Must Use RCA cables, or RCA jacks; Red and White for Audio, Yellow for Video)

Sample of Component Cables:

I have power to my super nintendo but no picture


One of my favorite systems!!! Super Metroid!!! 100%!!!! Wicked awesome!!!

If you have it connected throught the Coax (round screw on cable with a wire in the middle) make sure your connections are tight and your TV input is on the correct one.

If it's through RCA ensure your tv is on the right input.

If you have a coax and no rca, RadioShack sells universal cables for SNES, N64 and Wii all in one. Try purchasing one.

Good luck and please rate my solution accordingly.

I cant get our sony bravia to pick up signal for our SNES.. do i need a converter to use regula red white and yellow cables


no you dont but it could be the cord it self may need to be on a certain channel like 3 or 4 but most new TVs just have the VA [Video and Audio RED WHITE YELLOW CORDS] are just options for different deviced so theres no need to have it on a channel,

haha you may need a coax cable to the CABLE PART OF YOU TV AND PUT IT ON CHANNEL THREE OR FOUR AS DESIRED! the coax cables for super nintendo are cheap and can be found easliy at sum local shops who invest in older{ but needed] items for video game systems! so yeah i guess the AV [ audio and video thats the way its abbrivated\] may not work just cause of the older system! ebay may have sun but i dont really like the bay for things i can buy at my local pawn shop

Super Nintendo picture flashes in & out on my flat screen


Check your cables and connection, they could be worn or cracked, try using on another tv or use a different device in the same plugins to verify if what is wrong

Nintendo Wii AV Cables not work


It could be a problem inside the Wii where it only outputs a signal through HD. Have you tried a different TV using the original cables? If the problem persists I would recommend calling Nintendo.

Snes screen jumps on certain tv


Okay, what I would try is hooking up the snes using the n64 cable. right next to the rf slot in the back of the super nintendo is a slot thats the same video output as the n64 you can plug in the rca cables from it and see if they work
