Question about Nintendo Super NES Console

Games won't load - any sites taking in units and selling rebuilt?

Games won't load in old Super Nintendo; seems hard to believe that simple cleaning or replacement connector is the problem (re: recommended kits). I can burnish contacts if buildup is a common issue, but wouldn't think it would 'suddenly' stop, normally contacts clean themselves with re-insertion. I suspected chip prob and new (replacement) unit the most likely fix. BUT, is there any company taking trade-in on old units for rebuilt?

Your best bet is to get a new system, but go with either the FC Twin or Retro Duo systems - they play both NES and SNES games problem free (with very few exceptions).  I personally recommend the Retro Duo.

As far as trading in goes, can't help you there. But once you trade it in you can't go wrong with the RD.

Well to clean out the super NeS console you need to open it up with a 4.5mm bit tool and use compressed Air cans then to clean them out. Lukie games sells a 4.5 mm game bit tool.

Some of my game characters on Super Mario World (Mario) look choppy or are unrecognizable while others on the same screen are clear. The game seems to play ok but I can't see what Mario should be...

Well maybe that they are bad gamepacks then like the intenal parts to the gamepacks have glitches because that they are old then and broken. But the worse possiblity would be that your super nintendo is on its way out so buy stuff from reputable sellers like lukie games or jj games then.

My Super Nintendo seems to not work with any Mode7 or FX Chip games such as Star Fox, Super Mario Kart, and specific graphics in games like Contra III. I was wondering if cleaning the pins and carts would...

Well I personally think that if you tried cleaning the gamepacks and still no luck after that then
youe super NES console is broken and having internal issues too. But if the gamepacks work fine after you clean them out with qutips and rubbing alcohal than it was probally just the carttiages then.

My super nintendo system turns on but then freezes in the middle of the game. I have tried all my games so I'm thinking its not the games but the console Any thoughts?

Please try cleaning both the console and games with a cleaning kit. It might not be a bad idea to blow the dust out of the inside of the unit either as it might be overheating, especially if it's caked with dust and dander.

When we turn on tv the nintendo screen does show up

There are a couple things this could be... check:

Is the tv set to the correct channel or "input"?

Is your game clean? (use rubbing alcohol on a q-tip to wipe the gold bars on the inside of the game)

Do you have a bad AV cord? (I think you can find new ones on ebay or potentially a vintage video games store that sells super nintendo games, they usually are willing to test it in store with a new cord).

Hope this helps!

You mean without destroying it. You would need a specialized gamebit screwdriver, I believe is the 6.5mm version or If I have mistaken the 9.5mm version.
