Your system is probably broken beyond what is worth it to repair.

I'm guessing the problem at this point is complicated enough that its not going to be a simple fix and would be cheaper to buy a new system.

I got mine on e-bay for cheap.

How do you kow if the ac adapter needs to be changed or if the console is broken... no lights come on when you plug it in

the fuse gets blown if you know the power cord is good. look below, change it out ( its a 1.6A fuse) and you are in good shape again.

Wont turn on

First try plugging the Super Nintendo into another outlet and see if it works. If not, see if you can borrow a power adapter from someone else to see if it will work then. If it does then you will need a new power adapter.

Ok my power flashed off then back on yesterday now my Wii willnot turn on how do I get it to turn back on so can play?

Make sure something else plugged in the same exact outlet works to make sure it is not the outlet.If you unplug the AC adapter for 30 seconds then plug it back in it may fix the problem if you have a red light at least.If there is no red light you probably need a new AC adapter and even possibly manufacturer repair.Here is a link to help you out.Also,I used to repair Nintendos for an authorized center.If you do need an AC adapter,PLEASE make sure it is Nintendo brand or the packaging says 'Licensed by Nintendo' only.Anything else causes problems probably 90% of the time eventually if not right away.If you want to see my tips there is a good explanation which I put there because I have already typed it too many times.
Good luck and game on!

I never had a SNES, But I had a Super Nintendo Box.
Contact nintendo,
If you were to call Nintendo,they can't do nothing about this. It's too old.

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)

The dc jack where you plug in the ac adaptor is worn out which is why it is chipping and also why you can't make a good enough connection for the ac adaptor so you can turn on the Super Nintendo.

What needs to happen is your SNES needs to have the old dc jack taken off and a new one soldered on.

If you can find another broken SNES that has a good working dc jack then take if off of that one and solder it onto yours and your SNES will work like new.

Nintendo DS Adapter

You'll need an adapter that works in your country. If once you have that it still does not work then you probably need a new battery. Without a working battery you won't be able to play the DS even if the charger is plugged in. The charging light will flash and go out if the battery is bad.

Super Nintendo with no power.

I guess its the fuse! The fuse you will need is a 1.5 amp pico fuse. To get to the fuse you will need a snes screw driver which can be found on ebay. The picofuse will have to be soldered on. Might be cheaper buying a new one!
