Question about Nintendo Super NES Console

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.

You only need to plug in the Red/White/Yellow plugs. Make sure you plug them into the correct colors on the TV. Most HDTVs have Red/Green/Blue ports. DO NOT use these ones, they are for receiving HD video signals. A lot of HDTVs also have the Red/White/Yellow plugs on the side of the TV (often labeled "Game", maybe something like "Video 3")

The Red/White/Yellow cables are known as RCA cables or Composite cables so look for any ports with those labels as well.

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".

When i plug my snes to my tv it wont work :/ i plug the cable to tv and put the snes on chan3 then i go on channel 3 with my tv and it show me a black screen ,sometime i hear 2 sec of the game music :/


Hi pikapike,

I see you are going back to the 90's with your Super Nintendo. Firstly I do not know how you can "put the snes on chan 3". If I am correct, all super nintendo cables to the TV are RV coloured ones. therefore once it is plugged into the TV, you will ant the A/V channel? which usually has a separate button.

Secondly if what you say that you get a flash/glimpse of the game, then check the system of your TV. Is it PAL (Europe, Aus, NZ, etc) or NTSC (U.S.) Hopefully you can change the TV settings to match your game console!

Hope this helps,

Hi i just bought a super nes system it came with RF switch power unit which i have connected to the appropriate connections, i have an LG TV with an golden eye and don't seem to be able to tune the...


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.

My Super Nintendo has a Coax output. My tv only takes component cables. What can I do so that everything will work?


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

Have you tried using a composite connection? Do you know how to access the SCART input on your set? Sometimes the channel up/down buttons don't get you to the A/V inputs.

Rf switch


If you have the original SNES it has both an RCA socket for the R/F switch and the Nintendo A/V out socket for the red, yellow and white A/V cable. The second generation smaller SNES only has the Nintendo A/V out socket and will not accept am R/F switch. You must use a Nintendo A/V cable.

I'll just tell you how to set it up with an RF cable.

1: Plug the power adapter in an outlet and plug the other side in the designated spot where it fits. Simple.

2: On the back of the SNES, there should be a switch that says channel 3 or 4. Whatever one the switch is at, it will be the channel to play it at.

3: From where it says "NES CONTROL DECK" on the RF switch, plug that into the SNES.

4: From where it says "TV" on the RF switch, screw it into the supplied ports on the TV. Note that newer TV's don't have this port.

You probably don't need to bother with the antenna port.

Enjoy the SNES! :)
