Question about Nintendo Super NES Console

Snes screen jumps on certain tv

I have a super Nintendo that works fine on every TV except the one I actually want to use it on, the screen jumps up and down and wont stop, I have tried adjusting everything, different channels and I also tried hooking it up every way possible. it is a very old zenith TV with just those 4 screws in the back, I have an RF modulator connected to it, and all the following things work fine on it: Atari 2600, nes, sega genesis, n64, and a dvd player.

    I did try that among lots of other things, I even touched the video wire to the antenna connected to the tv, it actually came in, but it was still jumping. thanks for responding though.

Okay, what I would try is hooking up the snes using the n64 cable. right next to the rf slot in the back of the super nintendo is a slot thats the same video output as the n64 you can plug in the rca cables from it and see if they work

Have nintendo scope 6 and able to do first screen but when it goes to test aim screen nothing happens just remains on screen


If the screen you see is a blue screen with a white target, you need to aim the Super Scope at the target, and shoot. This tells the interface box (the device you plugged into the SNES) where the center of the screen is relative to the Super Scope. If shooting the screen does nothing (does not continue the calibration routine by going to the aim test), your particular cartridge of Super Scope 6 is glitched.

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,

Super Nintendo picture flashes in & out on my flat screen


Check your cables and connection, they could be worn or cracked, try using on another tv or use a different device in the same plugins to verify if what is wrong

Nintendo not working with flat screen tv


The RCA red/white/yellow output of the SNES will plug into any similar input on your TV. If you're missing that cable, do a search on 'super nintendo cable' and you can buy one.

If your TV has only HDMI and no component inputs, then Belkin makes an adapter for that.

You old zapper gun won't work on a LCD screen because the refresh rate of the TV is too fast,so no Duckhunt for you.

Rolling dark bands on TV while played Super Nintendo (SNES)


Actually your problem "IS" the 3rd party NES/SNES/Genesis AC adapter, which is notoriously unreliable, and many batches defective, bad ohm rating, creating a 60 cycle hum and/or noise bars that roll down your screen. The solution is to always insist on genuine Nintendo parts. I know, I know, but seriously, you'll save yourself a lot of headaches.

Yeah, they cost a little more, but it's worth it. And those cheap after market adapters have over time damaged more NES & SNES circuitry than you can shake a stick at.

SNES video is jumpy on Sony LCD TV


It sounds like a scanning issue...Older TV's were setup to adjust the image to the screen. Since the new age is all digital, they kind of left out that feature because it only happened in very old analog systems.

Sorry but to my knowledge there are no converters or anything that I know of that will fix this issue. I haven't tried any of my old systems on newer lcd's so I haven't been in the market to look.

Sorry.

No Picture on TV


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.
