Try cleaning the game or the SNES by just using a plain cotton swab.

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 have just found my old super nintendo. Tried to set it up but im unsure how to do so. Can you give me step by step how to set it up?


Not to be rude but are you serious?
Do you have the SETUP MANUAL, it tells you how to.
If not then, follow these steps.

First, plug controllers to the front of the super nintendo.
Second, plug in ac adapter(power) to the back of the super nintendo(round hole).
Third, plug in video cable
-if it has a red, white, and yellow plug it into back of super nintendo and the front of the t.v.
-if it has a grey box with a wire coming out of it, plug it into the back of super nintendo and back of the t.v. where you will have to screw it in by twisting it to the right.

Now if its the three different colored wires, then it will be on the first video channel.
If it screws into the back of the t.v. then it will be on channel 3 or 4 depending on what the channel switch says on the grey box.

Put the game in with the picture facing you all the way in.
Now hit start and you should be good to go. If you get a black screen try taking the game out and blowing on it then putting it back in after all it is old!

And there you have it!

Super nintendo turns on but not picture or sound


if you've tried 2 other super nes' and still no picture and sound.. don't you think it's the "yellow,red,white" cables that might be an issue? doesn't sound like a power cord is the issue at all if it's getting power to the "red light".... get a new y,r,w cable (sry.. tired and forget the name)

Tv problem


Hi,
I just serviced this model, same problem as noted. I did a resolder job on the power/drive PC board. This was NOT the problem! The problem acts like an electrolytic capacitor issue or horizontal drive amp. Once I get my hands a service manual & schematics, we'll resolve it. I'll post my results AFTER Super Bowl.
