Question about Nintendo Super NES Console
Ok, I bought a Snes from a pawn shop, tested it out, and it worked just fine on their tv. I bring it home, set all the settings to the right place (channel 3, cables input to correct area, things like that) and I get a black screen with about 4 horizontal lines coming across. I tried other games and I get the EXACT same picture. I don't get it! If it worked at the game testing place, why not at my house? I also tried it on the other tv's in my family's home, and I get the same thing. I tried a Gamecube AV (or was it RV?) cable into it, and I got the exact thing. I then tried hooking it up to where I'd put my cable. Same thing. I then tried my VCR and DVD player. SAME THING!? What's going on?
Nintendo solved the problem with the whole "you gotta blow the dust off the card and jam the game in right to play" thing when they brought out the SNES.
But in time, well, you gotta blow off the games.
Use your old NES Ninja tricks to get it to work. Blow the games out, blow out the slot. It should make it work.
Good luck man!

Try cleaning kits from Ebay, they help clean out your stuff for play.
Captain Jake is wrong, blowing games is bad. Why? Because the pins are made of copper, and copper can't stand the carbon dioxide emitted from your mouth. No matter what, NEVER blow on it.
