Why arn't i getting a picture on my snes


Make sure your system is hooked up correctly. This is the number one reason for a blank screen. To ensure all hookup connections are firm and correct, remove the AV cables and reinsert them with a slight twisting motion (this will help fully seat the connections). For more information about connecting the system, check the following hookup steps:

Audio/Video Cable to a TV
Audio/Video Cable to a VCR
Make sure you are using all licensed accessories with your system. Unlicensed products are not fully compatible with Nintendo systems and may not work correctly.
Make sure the system has power. If not, go to the No Power Light instructions.
Slide the Power Switch on the Control Deck to the OFF position. Remove the Game Pak and re-load it, pressing firmly to ensure it is locked in place. Slide the Power Switch on the Control Deck to the ON position.

Important Note: Inserting the game with the Power ON may result in a blank screen. Always turn your system OFF before inserting or removing Game Paks

There may be a problem in one of your hookup cables and not your system. Try purchasing a new connection cable (where to buy). You can also try borrowing the cable from a friend to see if it solves your problem before purchasing a new item.
If the above troubleshooting doesn't fix the problem, click here.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!

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!

Ive just plugged my super nes in after a good few years without use, but theres no sound. the picture is perfect though. any ideas what the problem may be?


Make sure you are using all licensed accessories with your system. Unlicensed products are not fully compatible with Nintendo systems and may not work correctly.
Check your system connections to ensure they are firm and correct.
Remove and reload the Game Pak, pressing firmly to ensure it is locked in place.
Many Game Paks have an option that controls one or more volume variables. These may have been set to maximum volume during the manufacturing or testing process. Consult the game manual for directions on how to adjust the settings. You can usually get to them by going into the Options screen.
Remove the AV cables and reinsert them with a slight twisting motion. Make sure the Video Cable (the yellow plug) is in the video input. Plugging it into an audio input will cause buzzing. Also, make sure none of your audio (red) cables, are plugged into a phono jack on your stereo, which can also cause buzzing. Finally, make sure the Stereo AV Cable is plugged into input ports, not output ports. For a detailed review of the hookup, please check our hookup instructions.
Some TVs or VCRs may have special Audio Inputs that don't allow the volume to be controlled by the TV. They are intended to be controlled by a different device, such as a home theater amplifier. Check your manual for the TV or VCR to see if this is the case for your unit.
Some TV and VCRs have a small switch, usually found near the AV inputs, that is used to allow components to send sound out to the TV speakers. Check your manual for the TV or VCR to see if this is the case for your unit.
If you are using the Stereo AV cable for your hookup, remove the plugs and reinsert them with a slight twisting motion. Make sure that you are plugging the yellow cable into the video input, and that the audio cables (red and/or white) are plugged into the audio input jacks on your TV or VCR.
If you only have one audio input, and one plug is hanging, that will result in a loss of sound. Either purchase a Y-adapter or access the game's option menu, and when available, set the game sound option to Mono.
There may be a problem in one of your hookup cables and not your system. Try purchasing a new connection cable (where to buy). You can also try borrowing the cable from a friend to see if it solves your problem before purchasing a new item.

Many Game Paks have an option that controls one or more volume variables. These may have been set to maximum volume during the manufacturing or testing process. Consult the game manual for directions on how to adjust the settings. You can usually get to them by going into the Options screen.
Try switching both the TV and RF Modulator to a different channel (3 or 4). Try adjusting the Fine Tuning control on your TV to see if it clears up the sound. A particularly strong TV station (or cable TV) signal may be broadcasting on Channel 3 or 4 in the area, causing interference. For a detailed review of the hookup, please check our hookup instructions.
Try disconnecting the antenna/cable wire from the RF Switch. (You will have to reconnect it again for regular TV viewing.) If this option works, an AB Box may be needed. These can be purchased at various home electronic stores.

How to hookup


It depends on the TV connectors. The most common is to use either the AV or S-video. In both cases you carry the video signal on one cable (either an RCA plug (yellow) or a S-video). Plug this into the appropriate video in on the TV. Then you can connect the audio. If you use the TVs speakers or a stereo receiver or amplifier, use a 2-plug (or a 3-plug including the RCA video) on each end wire (red and white for the audio) with the white wire carrying the left audio. Connect this cable to the audio outputs labeled Front on the left of the DVD player. If your TV uses PAL signal you will need to set the audio to 2-channel and the Down-Mix to Lo/Ro. Both are accessed from the On-screen menu or the buttons on the remote when a disc is in the player. The Down-mix is in Preferences 2 (Zoom + on the remote) and the Audio Channels is in Speaker Settings (Zoom - on the remote).

If you are using a multichannel (5.1) speaker system, use a couple of extra audio cables and match them to the speakers input ports (center, subwoofer, rear left and right). Set the Speaker settings appropriately. If your receiver can handle digital audio output, you can use that (get a cable) and modify the Preferences 2 section for digital audio.

If your TV doesn't have A/V inputs, you will need a converter. (If you only have RF (coax) in, get a RF modulator.) These are available at many stores.

I hope this helps.

Rca model f36649 s-video hookup to laptop computer When I hookup s--video cable to tv & HP Pavillion dv9000. I get nothing on tv? I have tried putting tv on channel 3.


Depending on how many hook ups you have on your tv it may have a factory designated channel. Example: Video 1, Game, etc. I know my TV has several different video channels. It's more a matter of trial and error until you find the vidoe channel for your oulet. Input channels are usually found before channel 1. Or look on your remote and see if it has a button to switch the channel to your input channel. Good Luck.
