Question about Nintendo Super NES Console

I'm missing a cable for my SNES but I don't know which one

I last used my SNES years ago and I had a cable which lead to a switch - I don't know what it was called, but it switched between tv and SNES. I'm pretty sure it wasn't a scart cable. I now have a basic TV that only seems to have an aerial socket - is there a cable I can buy that will allow me to use my SNES? If so, where can I buy one??

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.

Problems with the gray box on my SNES


Well to fix the gray bock you would need to by a broken SNES console off of ebay to find the needed part if you find a broken SNES console with a working motherbaord you might be able to swap the parts then. And will need a bypass plug from radio shack to hook it al toghter then. Its not an easy task and has an 8 out of 10 chance of not working if you don't know what your doing then and a 4.5mm tool bit to open up the SNES too.

Dead RF-out on SNES and vertical lines on Multi-out


The problem is likely in the IC soldered to your SNES circuitboard. The cheapest way to solve your problem is to replace the whole SNES circuitboard. These boards run about 20 dollars, Google part SNSPT007 or SNSPT009, depending upon if you have the older or newer version SNES. There is no soldering involved, so it should be an easy fix if you can open your SNES.

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

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

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! :)
