Question about Nintendo Super NES Console

SNES B button only works when X pushed also

The B button on my SNES only works if the X button is also depressed. The problem only occurs when the controller is plugged into the #1 position, both my controllers work fine plugged into #2. (I disassembled the controllers and cleaned the contacts already) The problem seems to lie in the SNES console, I took it apart looking for broken solder joints or obvious problems, none found. I can't seem to find any circuit diagrams online for the SNES so I don't even know where to start checking.

    You say both work fine plugged into position 2.

    Is it true that neither works in position 1 ?

Whenever I play a game it seems like the start button is constantly being pushed, so during game play the game just pauses over and over again, also the D pad only goes (right) no matter what direction you...


If you're playing on an original console, it is unfortunately not surprising that these things are happening. The SNES is quite an old system by now, and the internal components that it was made with were not really built to withstand 20+ years of wear-and-tear. There are people that will rebuild and repair consoles for you, but it is often more cost-efficient to buy a new system. I have seen an original SNES at many used game stores, some even for $20. As much as it sucks, those things just weren't built to last forever, and being that you tried multiple controllers and multiple games, the only conclusion I can draw is that some internal component is no longer working.

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.

Super Nintendo console


It's always possible to damage the unit by not pushing the eject button first. If you have other cartridges that work fine, then the loose cartridge is the issue, not the unit. A loose cartridge won't be read as well as a good snug one.

SNES Game/System incompatibility?


check your connections, try cleaning your snes system with some rubbing alcohol (the party where the game connects to the system), you might have to take it apart to do that...

one way we use to do with the NES was cut a piece of paper out to fit inside the game, make it wet with rubbing alcohol, then push the game in and pull it out a few times (of course if the paper gets stuck you'll have to take it apart to get it out.

SNES's are pretty cheap so u may have to purchase a new one
