I had the adapter plugged into the socket. And the other cord in the back of the NES but I dont know where to plug it in? The only place it can go into is the back of the dish network receiver. is that where it goes?

The RF adapter is supposed to hook up to either your TV or VCR. If neither has a plug that fits, you may need an RF modulator. (I don't think the receiver port would work, but I'm not positive.)

If you have a audio/video cable (you can get them from a dollar store depending on where you live) and a y-splitter, you can use the ports on the side instead. Hook the video straight in and use the y-splitter to split the one audio cable that fits into two and hook it up that way. (This method assumes you are in an NTSC region such as North America or Japan)

Whichever method you choose, good luck. (If you have a VCR with that plug, you don't need an RF modulator since the VCR will do it's job.)

    The y-splitter isn't necessary if you don't mind sound only coming out of one speaker. (Just mentioning in case they are expensive where you live. My local dollar store carries both cables.)

My Asus get no power


When you connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED light up? If not then - The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's power socket could be faulty. Check power adapter's DC plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard. This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

Hi

Its very simple, All you need to get a low cost AC plug adaptor which can be found most of the DIY shops, Also you can easy cut the unfitting ground pin of the cord if you dont wish to buy the converter.

Original-Style Super NES RF to TV Hookup



Installation Steps:

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!

I have a super nintendo but not sure if i have the right cords i was woundering if you would know the numbers that are on the back of the cables or the power cable thanks


Note: pictured above is the redesigned Super NES. The original Super NES uses the same hookup steps listed below.

Installation Steps:

Locate the Audio/Video inputs on the back of the TV.
Place the yellow end of the Stereo AV cable into the Video "in" on the back of the TV. Connect the red end of the cable to Audio "in" Right. Connect the white end of the cable to the Audio "in" Left. Use a slight twisting motion when inserting each cable and ensure the cables are firmly pressed into the input.
Note: If you have a mono television with only one Audio input, click here for a diagram of how the hook-up will look. The Y-adapter pictured is optional; you can also simply leave the white cable disconnected instead.

Connect the rectangular (gray) plug of the Stereo AV cable into the "multi out" connector on the back of the Control Deck.
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 system. Use the far left port for player one.
Plug the AC Adapter into the back of the system . Plug the other end into a wall outlet.
Slide the Power Switch on (toward Game Pak).
Turn on the TV and locate the input select. It is often called: input select, AUX (auxiliary), Line, Line In, Input, Source, Select, In, or EXT (external). Switch the input select to show the Nintendo game.
The game image should now be displayed on the screen. You are ready to play!

The monitor has and adapter type power cord that plugs into the computer end of the VGA cable. Look for a small round hole at the PC end of the cable.

Problem with NES


Check on the back of the nintendo system if it is on same channel as tv, little switch is on the back next to the power cord.

example..tv channel 3 and nintendo system channel 3

If that doesn't work your cable is not properly connected, You can't use both rf switch and av cable. It one or the other. rf connect in the back and to coax cable. Av cable connect on the right side of the system and front input on tv..


Make sure your games are clean also. Good Luck.
