Super NES Control Deck Model SNS -001

I have two control decks(systems) both having different problems.
First Unit Problems:
When I put a game in the unit it plays scrambled. 
When I shake the control deck you can hear something like a screw or plastic part shaking inside. 
I don't know how to get the control deck (system) open.
Second Unit Problem:
The game plays the background of the game but does not play the moving game figure such as the moving cars to drive.

Find an emulator that supports save states. Save states are saves that can be made at any point in the game and loaded at any point. They can be used for cheating, but you may decide how to use them. They have notable uses in games where mistakes can be extremely bad, like fire emblem.

I think you migh have a loose connection the acadapter might need to be fixed or and looked at then. To take your SNES appart you will need a 4.5mm or 3.8mm security tool to do this you can buy these tools at Lukie games.

Original-Style Super NES RF to VCR Hookup



Installation Steps:

Locate the VCR's VHF IN [ANT, CATV, 75S(ohm)] or Cable Connector.
Disconnect the existing cable wire from the VCR's VHF IN.
Connect the short, thick wire from the RF Switch (labeled ANT) to your VCR's VHF IN.
Reconnect the existing cable wire (disconnected in step 2) to the silver post labeled ANT on the RF switch.
Connect the thin wire from the RF Switch (labeled Control Deck) to the back of the Super NES (labled RF Out).
On the back of the Super NES, set the 3/4 switch so that it matches the channel of the VCR. Note on Sharp TV/VCR Combo
After the system is connected to the VCR:

Insert the Game Pak firmly into the Control Deck.
Plug the controller(s) into the front of the Control Deck. Use the far left port for player one.
Plug the AC Adapter into the back of the Control Deck. Plug the other end of the cord into a wall outlet.
Slide the Power Switch to the On position.
Turn your TV and VCR on. Set up your TV and VCR the same way you would to watch a movie on the VCR.
The game image should now be displayed on the TV screen. You are ready to play!
Note: The RF Switch does not produce stereo sound. To get stereo sound, connect your Control Deck using the Stereo Audio/Video Cable.

Nothing happening when hit power button....


If you are SURE you have hooked it up correctly, and it sounds like you have, be sure you have it plugged in a outlet that you know that works. You shiuld see the power light come on after turning it on. If it still doesnt work, you have to contact ebay or the person you bought it from for a return.If you need help dealing with Ebay please let me know, ive had to do it b4. Here are detailed instructions and the Service dept number for NES Connecting the NES Control Deck to your TV set There are two alternative methods of connecting the NES Control Deck to your TV set, depending on your type of TV: EITHER: (1) Using the Audio/Video Cable; OR: (2) Using the RF Switch and Converters. Make sure that you are not trying to use both the RF Switch and the Audio/ Video Cable: only one is required. First, compare your TV with the following illustrations (1), (2)(i) and (2) (ii) to determind which method you should use, (1) or (2). If you have a VCR connected to your TV, see below. --- (1) Using the Audio/Video Cable (Note! If your TV does not have direct audio/video connections, proceed directly to Method (2) "using the RF Switch and Converters".) Control Deck Back of TV Set (or VCR) -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Video-out jack Video-in jack --- Audio/video cable --- Audio-out jack Audio-in jack Note! Color coding of TV connections may differ from that of audio/video cable and Control Deck. Nintendo recommends against using a rear projection television with your NES as image retention on the screen may occur. To facilitate connection to video recorders, etc., many TVs have special audio/video input jacks. If your TV has such a jack, connect the audio/video cable supplied with the NES between the audio/video out jacks on the NES Control Deck and the audio/video in jacks on your TV set, and then flick the switch located on your TV that changes the TV from antenna reception to direct audio/video input. When you use the audio/video cable to connect the NES to your TV, there is no need to use the RF switch or converters, or to touch the antenna on the back of your TV. For more information on direct audio/video hookups to your TV, consult your TV Operation Manual. --- (2) Using the RF Switch and Converters (compatible with most TVs) (i) If your TV has TWO SCREWS FOR VHF antenna connection, connect the RF switch and NES as shown below. If your TV has a VHF cable connector, please see below. (Note: The existing antenna/cable to the TV should be first disconnected from the TV and then reconnected to the RF Switch. This will allow the signal from the antenna/cable to reach the TV when the NES is turned off.) Rear of Control Deck --- RF Switch -- 75/300 ohm converter -- VHF Screws --- (ii) If your TV has a VHF CABLE CONNECTOR connect the RF switch and NES as shown below. (Note: The existing antenna/cable to the TV should be first disconnected from the TV and then reconnected to the RF Switch. This will allow the signal from the antenna/cable to reach the TV when the NES is turned off.) Rear of Control Deck --- RF Switch --- VHF Cable Connector Note: if a VCR is already connected between the antenna and the VHF terminals on the back of your TV set, the RF Switch MUST be installed BETWEEN the VCR and the TV as shown below: (Refer to the illustrations above for your type of TV connection.) With this hook-up you are still able to record TV programs while using the NES. Antenna -- VHF in (From Antenna) VHF out (on VCR, to TV) -- RF Switch -- TV RF Switch -- Control Deck --- Connecting your NES Components. - Connecting the AC adapter to the control deck Insert the AC adapter power plug into the AC adapter jack on the back of the Control Deck. - Connecting the controllers to the control deck Both controllers are identical and may be connected to either controller socket. However, the controller connected to controller socket 1 becomes Controller 1, and the controller connected to controller socket 2 becomes Controller 2. The distinction is important when selecting and starting games, since only Controller 1 is used to select and start games. NOTE: Do not insert or remove controllers from control deck during gameplay as this may cause game malfunction. --- Operating your NES - To Start Play 1. Turn your television on to Channel 3. (Note: If Channel 3 is broadcasting in your area and interfering with the game, set the television and the switch on the back of the Control Deck to Channel 4.) 2. If your TV has an automatic fine tuning control (AFC), turn it off. (Use the manual fine tune dial to adjust the picture after inserting the game pak as described below.) 3. Make sure that the power switch on the Control Deck of off. Caution!! Always make sure that the power switch on the control deck is off before inserting or removing a game pak!! Always check the game pak edge connector for foreign material before inserting the game pak into the control deck!! 4. Open the Chamber Lid on the Control Deck. Insert a Game Pak into the Chamber (label facing up) and push it all the way in. Press down on the Game Pak until it locks into place and close the Chamber Lid. 5. Turn on the power switch of the NES Control Deck and push the reset button. Note: If the "reinsert" indicator light on the front of the Control Deck is flashing, it means that the game pak is not loaded correctly. In this case, turn off the Control Deck power switch and start over from step 4. Note: When the game pak is inserted properly, a colorful game display should appear on the TV screen. If it does not, or the picture is imperfect, turn the Control Deck power switch off and then on again, and press the reset button. 6. Use the Select button on Controller 1 to select the game you want to play, and start the game with the Start button on Controller 1. Note: If you experience any problems in operating your NES, please do not hesitate to call Nintendo's Consumer Service Department, toll free, at 1-800-422-2602.

Sounds not working on super nintendo


There may be a problem in one of your hookup cables and not your system. Try purchasing a new connection cable (where to buy). You can also try borrowing the cable from a friend to see if it solves your problem before purchasing a new item.well I guess that you will have to hook it up to a DVD player or a VCR player to have it work on a digital tv
Note: pictured above is the original Super NES. The redesigned Super NES uses the same hookup steps listed below.
Installation Steps:

Locate the Audio/Video inputs on the back of the VCR.
Place the yellow end of the Stereo AV Cable into the Video "in" on the back of the VCR.
Connect the red end of the cable to Audio "in" Right. Connect the white end of the cable to the Audio "in" Left. Use a slight twisting motion when inserting each cable and ensure the cables are firmly pressed into the input.
Note: If you have a mono VCR with only one Audio input, click here for a diagram of how the hook-up will look. The Y-adapter pictured is optional; you can also simply leave the white cable disconnected instead.

Connect the rectangular (gray) plug of the Stereo AV Cable into the "multi out" connector on the back of the Control Deck.
After system is connected to the VCR:

Insert the Game Pak firmly into the Control Deck.
Plug the Controller(s) into the front of the Control Deck. Use the far left port for player one.
Plug the AC Adapter into the back of the Control Deck. Plug the other end into a wall outlet.
Set the VCR's TV/VCR button to VCR. You can put a movie in the VCR, press play, make sure you see the movie on the TV, then press stop. This puts your VCR into VCR mode.
Slide the Power Switch on (toward Game Pak).
Turn on the VCR and locate the input select. It is often called: input select, AUX (auxiliary), Line, Line In, Input, Source, Select, In, or EXT (external). Switch the input select to show the Nintendo game.
The Game image should now be displayed on the screen. You are ready to play!
Recording Game Play

Set up the Super NES to play a game.
Insert a videotape and press Record. You can now tape your video game playing for posterity!

My super nes has a scrambled picture and good sound. just dug it out of storage it was working when it was put away. borrowed my buddies input cord from an n64 and still does it. any suggestions?


Other Screen Problems

Make sure you are using only licensed accessories with your system.

We find that video problems occur most when an unlicensed RF switch is used. Make sure the name "Nintendo" is molded onto the RF switch, as opposed to "for use with Nintendo." Unlicensed products are not fully compatible with our systems and may not work correctly.

Check all of the system connections to verify that they are firm and correct.

For AV connections
Remove the AV cables and reinsert them with a slight twisting motion

For RF connections
Make sure the channel switch on the TV and system are set to the same channel (either CH3 or CH4)

Slide the Power Switch on the Control Deck to the OFF position. Remove the Game Pak and re-load it, pressing firmly to make sure it is locked in place.

Important Note: Removing the Game Pak with the power ON will cause the Game Pak image to freeze on the screen. Press Reset to correct the problem. Always turn your system OFF before inserting or removing Game Paks.

Slide the Power Switch on the Control Deck to the ON position.
