Super nintendo game can not save over existing saved games

I bought a used super Nintendo game that already has saved games on the cartridge. I have tried to save over the existing games or erase them. The game makes the appropriate save indication but will not save over or erase the existing games any suggestions on how to solve this problem would be a great help thank you

The reason that happens is because the game requires a battery to write the saves to the chip.
Once that battery is dead, you cannot save any more games on that cartridge.

I am suprised that the old games are still there at all!

But you can repair it.

Here is how:

Yes Try Reseting The Power Button Over And Over While The Unit Is Running Then Check. This Should Delete The Files. Also If You Have The Newer Version Of The Snes Pull The Game Out While The System Is Running And Put It Back In.

Saving Issues on a Used Game Purchase


The internal battery in your game cartridge is probably long since given up the ghost. Due to this, your saved games are lost because there is no trickle of power for the memory. You can replace this battery, though, so not to worry. Open the cartridge and you'll find a small battery similar to one found in a watch. You can find a replacement at Radio Shack or similar places. You will need a soldering iron and few hand tools to accomplish this task.
