Re: Snes

I would suggest that you make sure the RCA jacks are hook up properly, and on the right color.If that doesn't fix it, then its an inside problem.It might need some cleaning.

Hi I recently purchased a snes, it was working fine but the power cable was a bit dodgy, but when placed in a certain position works fine, it still seems to work and gives power to the console. The problem...

It is possible that you will need new cords. (It sounds like you power cord has a short in the cable somewhere, so it may need replaced too.) A new video cable may fix the problem, but if it doesn't, the SNES may be on its las legs. In that case, you will need to purchase a new SNES or just turn up the brightness on the TV.

FC twin will not play SNES games. produces sound only

Try cleaning the cartridges, DON'T USE RUBBING ALCOHOL!!!!!! This can ruin the cartridge, there is a cleaner that you used to be able to buy (haven't look for one in a while). Check with your local game store or on ebay.

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

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.

Vertical lines show up on my SNES picture of any game.

Do you have a third party AC adapter for it? If you aren't using the original one, check its voltage. Mine was a 9V instead of a 10V and while it allowed the machine to run, I got visual distortion effects similar to what you describe. If it isn't a 10V adapter, go to Amazon and get a real one instead of a cheap third party one. I got this one ( and it works great!
