I just purchased a SNES on Ebay. The seller said it was tested and worked fine. 2 of the ones I received are fine, but on the 3rd one the power port has 2 metal prongs sticking out and no plastic cover. They feel secure so I am assuming the inside is still connected... If so is there an easy fix to this?? I have a universal adapter with parts that look extremely similar but the prongs are a little larger and I don't know if they make them for this particular size or not. Please Help!
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.

It is possible that you will need new cords. (It sounds like you power cord has a short in the cable somewhere, so it may need replaced too.) A new video cable may fix the problem, but if it doesn't, the SNES may be on its las legs. In that case, you will need to purchase a new SNES or just turn up the brightness on the TV.
Well try cleaning the gamepacks out with qutips and rubbing alcohal then or the worst case is that you guys have purchased a broken console or have gotten ripped off then.Buy from jjgames or lukie games them because theese are reputable sellers.
The lens assembly is directly associated with a non spinning disk issue.
Here was my situation.
I purchased a used PS2 slim from an ebay seller that had the disk read error. I bought another lens from another ebay seller and when installed it, the disk would not spin. I then replaced the new lens assembly with my old one and the disk started spinning again but I still had the disk read error. I contacted the seller to send me a replacement lens assembly for the defective one I received.
Bottom line is if your lens assembly is bad, the disk will not spin. You can replace the lens assembly for about $4 or $5 on ebay.
This mostly occurs to all slimline PS2 it is a common problem.
I'm having the same problem currently actually...wtf SNES! I actually bought a second SNES because I thought my old one was permanently broken but as soon as I got the NEW one in the house the OLD one booted back up... the only thing I can guess is that it burns out from time to time because of the age.
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.
check your connections, try cleaning your snes system with some rubbing alcohol (the party where the game connects to the system), you might have to take it apart to do that...
one way we use to do with the NES was cut a piece of paper out to fit inside the game, make it wet with rubbing alcohol, then push the game in and pull it out a few times (of course if the paper gets stuck you'll have to take it apart to get it out.
SNES's are pretty cheap so u may have to purchase a new one
