You indeed have a short. You can pick up a new or used cord on ebay for next to nothing.

HOW DO I HOOK UP MY SUPER NINTENDO TO A TV THAT DOESN'T HAVE AUDIO/VIDEO HOOK UPS?


You need an RF modulator or a modulator and a A/V switch (to avoid Daisy-chaining the game system to the DVD/VCR). These are available at many electronics shops (Radio Shack, etc.)

Here is one RF modulator: http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2103095 . There are many more out there; however, these days some stores may only have them in their online inventory.

I hope this helps.

How do you hook up the super nintindo console to the tv?


Original-Style Super NES RF to TV Hookup

hook_sns_rftotv.gif Installation Steps:

  1. Locate the TV's VHF IN [ANT, CATV, or 75(ohm)] or Cable Connector.
  2. Disconnect the existing cable wire from the TV's VHF IN.
  3. Connect the short, thick wire from the RF Switch (labeled ANT) to your TV's VHF IN.
  4. Reconnect the existing cable wire (disconnected in step 2) to the silver post labeled ANT on the RF switch.
  5. Connect the thin wire of the RF Switch (labeled Control Deck) to the back of the Super NES (labled RF Out).
  6. 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:
  1. Insert the Game Pak firmly into the Control Deck.
  2. Plug the controller(s) into the front of the Control Deck. Use the far left port for a one player game.
  3. Plug the AC Adapter into the back of the Control Deck. Plug the other end of the cord into a wall outlet.
  4. Slide the Power Switch to the On position.
  5. Turn on the TV and set it to the appropriate channel (3 or 4.)
  6. The game image should now be displayed on the TV screen. You are ready to play!

We are trying to set up an old super nintendo we have rf adaptor hooked up and its set on right channel but its not showin on tv


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

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.

Hi i just bought a sper nes system it came with rf


If I am understanding...

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.

Snes screen jumps, only on certain tv


Try the other channel.
If both are set to channel 4, change both to channel 3.
If both are set to channel 3, change both to channel 4.

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

I'll just tell you how to set it up with an RF cable.

1: Plug the power adapter in an outlet and plug the other side in the designated spot where it fits. Simple.

2: On the back of the SNES, there should be a switch that says channel 3 or 4. Whatever one the switch is at, it will be the channel to play it at.

3: From where it says "NES CONTROL DECK" on the RF switch, plug that into the SNES.

4: From where it says "TV" on the RF switch, screw it into the supplied ports on the TV. Note that newer TV's don't have this port.

You probably don't need to bother with the antenna port.

Enjoy the SNES! :)
