Won't power on

I bought a nes off of ebay and it came with an AC adapter that's supposed to be for multi systems(nes, snes and genesis) and these AV cables. The red light won't come on and nothing happens on the screen is the console broken or could it be the hook ups?

Well those 3 way adapters are bad news then use an offical NES ac adapter for ensured quality.

It could be a NES power system failure, but it is most likely the AC adapter. It is "rare" that a NES red light will not power on with a working AC adapter. I would suggest getting another AC adapter. Those after market 3-way adapters are notoriously unreliable.

How do I fix nintendo super nes console that resets during gameplay?


Well I think that the ac adapter is causing the type of a problem because the cord on the ac adapter that allows the SNES to give it its power in order to work is loose. Try using another ac adapter too see if it will make a difference.

Why can't NES or SNES or sega genesis not have controllers ports for 4 people to play at the same time then?


Well its because that they are too old and that technology wasnt avaliable at that time that NES SNES segs genesis and atari 2600 were made but you can use a 4 way cross key pad so 4 people can paly at the same time for theese consoles.

Well the round metal part where the rf switch is supposed to go into is broken off so you couls use the av cables for SNES and N64 instead of using the rf switch or you could of bought a crappy console then.

I don't know a lot about this console (the Retron 3), but the game sounds like it works fine, try using a different third-party console, I recommend the Retro Entertainment System, it's only around $20 - $25 on eBay, try a different NES game, if it doesn't work, than it's probably the controllers, get replacements, or the batteries are dead.

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.

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.
