Can't work SNES

I have a cable that plugs into the normal aerial socket in the TV. I have done this but the TV keeps saying there is no signal even though the SNES has the power light on. Have tried this on 2 different TV's but the same is happening. Am I doing something wrong or is there something missing?

Could be several things. If you are using the SNES RF, make sure the channel switch in back is set to either chanbel 3 or 4. along with your TV. Secondly, make sure your RF (or AV) cable that goes from your SNES to your TV is not defective.

Is the TV tuned to the same channel as the SNES ?
Both have to be set to channel 3 or both to channel 4.

its an rf cable you can buy third party ones if you search on the internet. also if you happen to have a video cable for gamecube or n64 you can plug that into the slot on the back of the snes and it will work. Im not sure what that slot is called but its the only one that cable will fit into.

No dvb signal on Vierra Panasonic tv


If the tvs share the aerial but only one is working then the wiring of the non functioning socket has shorted. Perhaps the cable you used to connect the second set is damaged,try another. PERHAPS THE AERIAL SOCKET HAS BECOME DAMAGED,THIS ONLY COSTS A FEW PONDS/DOLLARS TO CHANGE. Alternatively it might be the wiring from the roof to the wall socket that is faulty.
First things first, check that the tv is working by connecting it in the other room. If it does work there you will know that theaerial socket in the second room is faulty and can begin testing.

Hi, tv says no signal, have swapped out aerials set to australia dtv, still no signal. Please help.


what type of cable are you using because video av cable looks exactly like aerial coxial cable but electrically they are quite different.Also make sure impedance matches. cable on antenna , cable from wall to tv , aerial socket designed for same impedance.

if you are a long way from tv station transmitter a mast head amplifier would be employed. this could be another point of failure.

Why does my freeveiw model Hitachi HDR 1632s coad alublkw only allow me to view what I'm recording. The other channels just say no signal check aerial connections ?


The Frie view is a digital recorder, you only can pause while recording. You don't need tapes to disks.
The antena cable goes in on one socket on the back. In the other socket, you plug a 1 meter coax cable and that cable should go into your TV. That should solve the problem, when you want to see the channels you are not recording.

My Polaroid HDTV says no signal. What is going on.


  • Have you plugged in the arial?
  • Is it in the right socket?
  • Are you using an aerial cable extender/splitter?
  • Are you using a portable indoor aerial?
  • Does it have built in Freeview?
  • Have you plugged in an external Freeview box if necessary?
  • Have you scanned for channels through the Freeview box?
  • Are you in an area where the analogue signal has been turned off?
  • Have you subscribed to a cable or satellite provider?
  • Are you on the right TV source?
  1. check the back of the tv to see if the aerial is plugged in.
  2. check the back of the tv to see if the aerial is plugged in correctly.
  3. If you are using an aerial cable extender or splitter, make sure all parts are connected all the way up to the aerial.
  4. If you're using a portable indoor aerial you might not be able to get enough signal to produce a picture. Also the aerial might need to be switched on, plugged in or need batteries.
  5. If the TV has Freeview built-in then you will need to scan for channels before you will get a picture. refur to you're TV's manual.
  6. Make sure, if you have got an external Freeview box that it is plugged in and switched on at the wall. Also make sure that it is connected to the TV either by a scart lead or by HDMI cable.
  7. Typically there will be a button on the remote called menu. From the menu screen choose setup. Then choose auto scan. Follow any on-screen instructions. Always refur to the TV's manual to avoid confusion and frustration.
  8. If you are in an area where they have switched off the analogue signal you will need to buy a Freeview box or subscribe to a cable or satellite provider. Freeview is cheep and is a one off payment ( best for people who will only really watch channels 1-5)
  9. Ring up your providers tech support.
  10. To change what input you are viewing, there will normally be a button called source on the remote. If you have connected a Freeview or cable/satalite box to the tv with a scart lead then select scart. If you used a HDMI lead then select HDMI. (There may be more than one of theses sockets so check behind the TV first. They usually have names or numbers by the side) refur to you're TV manual for help.
That is every problem i can think of. If it still doesnt work, take it back to the shop.
Hope this helps.

Hi Fiona
Somewhere along the line from the aerial there must be a signal splitter that feeds the upstair and downstair terminals.
Try to find that splitter and switch the output to see if the problem goes from up to downstair.
If it does switch then you know the problem is with the splitter block, and if it stays the same then the problem is with the cable and/or the connectors that run downstairs.
Also the reason you get a pixellated(snowy) picture is because of signal loss during the length of the cable you ran downstair.
If running a cable downstair becomes the best option to fix your problem , then you could buy a cheap 10db signal booster/r.f amplifier to correct the signal loss and a cable splitter to feed both tv`s
That booster would be installed upstair in your case(near the source of the signal to be amplified).
I could send you a small diagram if need be. Hope this will help and Merry Chrismas

Make sure everything's connected in the correct sockets. Turn the SNES on, change to one of the Analogue channels (one of the channels which you control with the TV remote) and start scanning for a signal. The RF cable has to be connected to the analogue port (where a TV aerial would plug in to get analogue channels) and the SNES needs to be switched on.

The alternative is to get a SCART-compatible cable that works with a Gamecube or an N64 and use it with the SNES, as Nintendo had the foresight to add an EXT port which'll let you play the SNES on an AV channel.

Since digital switchover yesturday loss of digital channels


It may well be your aerial despite the success with your DVD recorder.

Digital signals are very much weaker than analogue ones, and when multiple devices share a single aerial you can get this kind of problem. You also lose about 60% of the signal at each point in your aerial cable where there are signal splitters.

There are a number of possible solutions:-

First, look at every bit of coaxial cable you have between the aerial and each appliance. Check especially at the aerial end for corrosion or poor shielding/installation and especially for evidence of rain water penetration. If the aerial is on the roof then it will cost almost as much to get the aerial inspected as it will to have it replaced, so skip to the next option. But otherwise, check along every bit of the cable for any cuts or splits in the insulation and properly remake every junction or joint if there are any doubts about them. If the cable is in poor condition then consider option three instead.

The second is to try to see if you get a better digital signal from another transmitter, this will involve trying different aerial positions so is impractical if your aerial is roof mounted but is worth trying if it's in the loft instead. It doesn't always follow that your best digital signal will be from the transmitter which you used for analogue transmissions.

Thirdly, if you're still using the same aerial as you have done for years then it's worth upgrading to one optimised for digital reception. When doing this it's foolish not to replace the cabling as well as you need it to be as good as possible. With analogue, many installers got away with using cheaper cable intended only for very short cable runs from the wall socket to the tv.

The fourth option is the budget option but can work as well as the third option: fit an additional analogue style aerials and run a separate cable down to each appliance. If these are fitted in the loft and you have the space, then there's no aesthetic or planning concerns. Normally the extra cables can run partway down through the house alongside existing cables, but for best signal quality keep them separate and ensure that the cable runs as as short as possible.

One further thing which you may want to try before all else: connect your digital box directly to the aerial cable which currently feeds your dvd recorder. Leave all other tv devices disconnected from the aerial. If the box retunes correctly then it's definitely a supply of signal issue as outlined above and if not then you should add the exact make and model of your digibox as a comment to this answer as there are a large number of earlier digibox models which cannot retune correctly due to evolving standards.
