In the cords & cables that came with your system, there should be one cable that has a place for cable ready tv and one for non cable ready tv. The non cable ready looks like the 2 wires that run from a tv antenna. If you have a cable ready tv you just use the screw on part like on a vcr. Also on the back of most newer tvs you will find what they call rca type plug ins. You can use them to connect it also. They are simple just follow the color codes such as white to white and so forth. There should have been an instruction sheet to show you this. I have noticed that depending on when it was built/shipped they have some that are shipping with the rca cables. If your tv is an older one and doesn't have the rca jacks in the back of it you have 2 choices that I can think of well maybe 3.You can upgrade the tv or you can buy a box designed to convert the older tvs to use the rca jacks or and most likely the simplest plug the rca cables into the back of a vcr.The last suggestion will not require the vcr to be turned on. It will work on a simple pass through. The vcr will work as normal with all other functions it has and it gives you the option of recording you playing the game so you can prove the levels you made and also show you mistakes you made in losing the game. I hope this helps I tried to keep it as simple as I could for all to understand. So please don't think I was trying to talk down to or above the head of anyone.

My nintendo 64 game pack will not fit into the slot of the retoduo


YOU CAN NOT PUT NINTENDO 64 GAMES INTO SNES or NES SLOTS. The retro duo is snes (super nintendo entertainment system) and nes (nintendo entertainment system) only there is not spot for the nintendo 64.

I hooked up my nes to my tv, the light turns on but I get no picture!


Hi sounds like the common fault found with these old retro consoles. Flashing light is mostly because the system does not make good contact with the game. which may be because of a worn out connector pins in side the console or dirty games recommend cleaning all your games with a game cartridge paste cleaner and replacing the connector pin with a new one, also check that your using a audio video cable not the old RF Cables that came out with these console as cable may be faulty. see http://www.gameoz.com.au/store/nintendo-entertainment-system/nes-accessories/ they carry these items and included photo instructions.

Console blinks when game is loaded


Hi there, here's a fix that may help, I've done it on quite a few NES and all have started working. Basically the pins that connect to the cartridge have been pushed flat over time so your not getting a clean connection.

I do not know how to install my Retro Duo Nintendo to my LG tv. Where do I plug in my S-Visual wires?


Not all new tv's have S-Visual inputs. What you need is an RF Switch. You can find them at any electronics store (even walmart).

Check which one you buy or have a sales associate help you find the right one. Some RF switches (sometimes called modulators) only help you to plug multiple 3-prong av cords to a single av input on a tv. Others will convert your older Coaxel (cable cord) or S-Video (circle with multiple holes) into a 3-prong to the tv.

Also make sure that the RF you buy either comes with a 3-prong AV cord or buy a cheap one (cheapest you find in the store; it doesn't have to be long)

Games won't load - any sites taking in units and selling rebuilt?


Your best bet is to get a new system, but go with either the FC Twin or Retro Duo systems - they play both NES and SNES games problem free (with very few exceptions).  I personally recommend the Retro Duo.

As far as trading in goes, can't help you there. But once you trade it in you can't go wrong with the RD.

Both my FC Twin and Retro Duo (brand new) have issues with nes...


If it's a flat screen especially, there will be major resolution problems. I know the laser gun doesn't work at all on flat screens and some newer TVs. You gotta play NES on an old school TV any way. It makes the experience much more authentic.

Trying to hook up having problems with connication ,need manual


Okay... with limited information I'll give it a shot...

Depending on the age of your tv, sometimes they have multiple input options. Since you are referring to hooking it up with cable, I'm guessing that you are using a coaxle for your super nintendo. The easiest way to get it hooked up it to upgrade to a 3-prong AV cable. You can find them on ebay for about $2.

If you don't have any open inputs on your tv you will need to either continuously change what is connected to the tv (unlikely) or buy an RF switch from any store that sells electronics. I think they are running $20 or less now adays. (They are worth the cost because they allow you to connect DVD player, VCR, game component, etc all using one input on TV.)
