SNES Controller 2 Port Not Working

Hi, when playing two-player games on my Super Nintendo Entertainment System, the console does not recognise the second controller. For example, when playing Donkey Kong Country or Mortal Kombat (in two-player mode) and it requires Player 2 to press START, it does not recognise this. Both controllers work indepentendly in the Controller 1 port, so it doesn't seem that the controller itself is the problem. I have dusted out the connections without any luck... Anyone have any ideas? Thanks for reading this question.

The 2nd Player controller port just might be shot. That or the part of the main board that deals with the 2nd controller. My suggestion is purchasing another controller board (the main board and controller board are separate and easily removable pieces) and switching them out. If the problem persists then the SNES's main board probably has an issue.

I'd say it sounds like an issue with either the controller or the port on the system. My advice to you would be to try a different controller, and try switching ports on the console. The games should be fine, though.

What is it about?


The N64 is the third home-console published by Nintendo and is the successor of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES). It was competing with the Playstation 2 and the Dreamcast.
The name Nintendo 64 comes from the fact that it was one of the first 64-Bit consoles. The "64" can also be found in various game titles like "Super Mario 64" oder "Donkey Kong 64".
The console was released in 1996 and the last game was released in 2002.
Which made this console popular was mostly the nintendo only milestones. The Zelda game (Ocarina of time) is among fans, still the best Zelda game ever released. It was also the debut of the first 3D Mario and Donkey Kong games.

My SNES was working while i was playing a game, i shut it off to put in a different game, and when i turned it on, it wouldnt work. any suggestions on what to do?


i to love the snes, i suggest to get a wii, softmod it, then install all your favorite snes games on it via wads. all your games will show up as channels on the wii and they play flawlessly. (no lagg) all you need is a classic controller or gc controller

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.
