Locate the TV's VHF IN [ANT, CATV, or 75(ohm)] or Cable Connector. Disconnect the existing cable wire from the TV's VHF IN. Connect the short, thick wire from the RF Switch (labeled ANT) to your TV'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 of 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 TV. Note: The RF Switch does not produce stereo sound. To get stereo sound, connect your Control Deck to your TV or VCR using the Stereo Audio/Video Cable.
After the system is connected to the TV:
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 a one player game. 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 on the TV and set it to the appropriate channel (3 or 4.) The game image should now be displayed on the TV screen. You are ready to play!

probly the connection in the rf adapter is crapped out. there is a cord that is sold with the n64 and gamecube( not sure about the wii) that can connect to the super nintendo. kind of a rounded rectangle plug with a bump at the top that has rca cords ( 3: 1 for video and 2 for sterio sound). look at the back of the nintendo and ull see what im talking about. there should only be 2 outputs. the rf and the other rectangle with a dump one.
the other cord was never sold with the super nintendo just the rf was sold with it.
so if u have a N64 or gamecube you can use their tv input cords
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.
If the RF switch comes with a power cord on it, it MUST be plugged in to work. Try plugging it in.
Also check your tv settings. I don't have an HDtv but I do know they have multiple options of "inputs"
If it is an RF modulator and not just a switch, check the settings on that as well. On the one I own I have to designate channel 3 or 4, that could make a difference.
Okay, what I would try is hooking up the snes using the n64 cable. right next to the rf slot in the back of the super nintendo is a slot thats the same video output as the n64 you can plug in the rca cables from it and see if they work
