    I sold 3 snes games to a person in Norway. The games worked fine for me.He says that he gets an error message when he puts the game in his snes console. The error message says the games are copies...is this possible? I purchased 2 of the games new and the other on ebay.

    (HELP)

    My super nintendo was working at my old house, and I moved but I had to get a new power cord. The power cord works; the red light comes on the super nintendo. But I have tried all the channels/videos, and flipped the switch from ch3 to ch4 and tried all the videos, and I always get a blank screen - this happens with every game cartridge I put in. Is there anything else to try?

Hi i just got a fc twin and i am trying to get a nes mario/ duckhunt game to go in and i cant figure it out.. i have other games but they wont go in eaither


The front slot is made for NES games such as mario/duckhunt, and the back slot is made for SNES games. Make sure you put them in the right direction as well.

Good Luck,

Super NES Console: My super Nintendo gets power (red light turns on) ...


Maybe the one that is not turning on to play game is broken then. Ensure that you have a known-good game cartridge inserted before powering on the SNES console. Most older, cartridge-based game consoles don't boot without a game installed.
Does the power light to the left of the controller ports turn on when you turn on the power switch?
If not, check your power adapter and outlet for functionality and good connection.
Check that the reset switch is not stuck. Wiggle it back and forth through its range of motion a few times. If something sticky gets in there it can get jammed in the reset position, which will prevent any game from booting.
You mentioned that there is no image. Are you getting any sound from your games after waiting a few minutes with everything connected and turned on?
If you hear game sounds or music from the SNES, but see no picture and you've already (really and truly) ruled out the cabling and TV, then you might have a bad main board in the console.
If you don't get any video or sound, then it's not booting your game. You can find other recommendations about how to clean game and console connections, but usually inserting and ejecting a game 10-20 times will knock loose or grind off enough gunk to get a game to boot. Try this, and be sure to use the eject lever instead of ripping the game out to avoid console connector damage. If it's still not working, repeat with another game.

My SNES can't read the cartridge but I already cleaned the cartridge HELP!!!!!


Try giving the SNES itself a cleaning. It's good to keep both the game and the console free of any dust or debris that could hinder gameplay.

Hi i just bought a super nes system it came with RF switch power unit which i have connected to the appropriate connections, i have an LG TV with an golden eye and don't seem to be able to tune the...


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.

Super Nintendo games start but levels don't


try blowing inside the game cartridge and then the slot the game inserts into. I had this problem on my snes with some games and this helped. Other to that it may be the console is on its way out.

Ebay sell some really cheap snes consoles now. I picked one up for £15.00 with games.

Denon 3808ci won't upconvert old video game consoles


Since the games are so old and the SNES is an ancient console most tv's are made for the newer ones/Wii, Xbox, ETc./ So The Tv May Require Certain Wires for the console to function correctly, it also may be that your wires for the SNES are corroding in side *( Copper Wires Etc. )

How did you clean the game? Certain "surefire" ways may actually damage the game.
