Picture but no Sound

I have had my SNES for a long time now. Working properly for as long as I've had it. And now I have no sound but everything else is working fine. I've tried more than one Video Cable. And a RF Switch just to be sure. And nothing. I hope someone can help me with my problem. Thanks.

I had the same problem, then I switched to the multi-out port (you can use a gamecube video cable). And now mine works fine

Re: Picture but no Sound

Its a common problem with those old machines. You can open it up and re solder the input connection and check the circuits to see if any others need the same treatment. If you are not confident doing this, I am sure that it can be done cheap by someone qualified if you look around a little.

FC twin will not play SNES games. produces sound only

Try cleaning the cartridges, DON'T USE RUBBING ALCOHOL!!!!!! This can ruin the cartridge, there is a cleaner that you used to be able to buy (haven't look for one in a while). Check with your local game store or on ebay.

Dead RF-out on SNES and vertical lines on Multi-out

The problem is likely in the IC soldered to your SNES circuitboard. The cheapest way to solve your problem is to replace the whole SNES circuitboard. These boards run about 20 dollars, Google part SNSPT007 or SNSPT009, depending upon if you have the older or newer version SNES. There is no soldering involved, so it should be an easy fix if you can open your SNES.

Vertical lines show up on my SNES picture of any game.

Do you have a third party AC adapter for it? If you aren't using the original one, check its voltage. Mine was a 9V instead of a 10V and while it allowed the machine to run, I got visual distortion effects similar to what you describe. If it isn't a 10V adapter, go to Amazon and get a real one instead of a cheap third party one. I got this one ( and it works great!

Snes is broken - won't power on

I'm having the same problem currently SNES! I actually bought a second SNES because I thought my old one was permanently broken but as soon as I got the NEW one in the house the OLD one booted back up... the only thing I can guess is that it burns out from time to time because of the age.

Sound but no picture

I think it has something to with the cable connecting to the tv but im not at all sure. I have the same problem with mine (at least it sounds the same). What i do is just leave it plugged in for a few minutes and it slowly starts to unflicker. Hope that helps.

I would suggest that you make sure the RCA jacks are hook up properly, and on the right color.If that doesn't fix it, then its an inside problem.It might need some cleaning.
