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.

Does the original Nintendo NES-001 require a certain AC adapter. Cause I doesn't have the original ac adapter with same spec. My console power light is blinking on an doff. can that be the issuept

As long as it's 9 volt and about 500mA it should be ok. Just seen an original that says 9 volt and 400mA.

The current (mA) can be higher than the original but not the voltage that has to be 9.

1000mA = 1 Amp. So anything over 400mA is fine, but not less.

Hi there,

It's likely the AC Adapter or RF Switch which needs to be replaced. Modern day power didn't exist back when the NES was current.

I bought a NES on ebay, connected it correctly as far as I know, but I press the power button and nothing happens. Please help! Could it be the adapter plug?? Thanks

Well it might be the ac adapter thats causing the problem but it could be a power system failure but most likely the first choice is the answer.

Is the Sega Genesis AC adapter compatible with the NES? And is there a certain type of RF switch that you need for the NES, or are they universal?

Well for the nes ac adapter I use the offical adapter because its licensed Nintendo and thost 3 way adapters are very unrelaible then.

Nes wont come on!ac adapter is warm though

As far as I know a NES can go on for a very long time if looked after properly. I still have mine with duck hunt and it works fine lol. The only way to check if it is working is to test the external power supply for the correct voltage output with a multimeter. It should be written on it somewhere what the output voltage is. Allow for +/- 2volts as this could be just meter error. If the voltage is too low suspect the external power supply as faulty. If too high it could have fried a component on the internal power supply. Hope this helps. Post on your progress.

It's possible that the connector in the nes has come loose and needs to be resoldered. However it's more likely the new has just given up it's life. Might be time for another one.
