Re: SNES Breath of Fire 1 AND 2

The problem is the games. The memory inside them is volatile, meaning that it requires a small electric current to keep the information saved. The battery only lasts for a few years, and then the games are unable to save data. The battery can be changed but is usually soldered to the board.

Why is this filed under Sony Playstation??
It looks like a Super Nintendo problem to me..

When playing Mortal Kombat II second player keeps "popping" into game even though only one controller is hooked up?

Well try cleaning the game pack out with quips and rubbing alchoal it could just be dirty then or the worst case is that the game pack could have internal issues Check for Unlicensed products. Make sure that you're using only licensed products with your Nintendo system. Unlicensed products are not tested for compatibilty and may not work correctly with all games. Try playing the game without the unlicensed accessory.
Insert the Game Pak into the system. The Game Pak label should be facing the front of the machine (or facing up if you are using an original NES).
Make sure the Game Pak firmly clicks down into place.
Remove all accessories to see if the Game Pak works correctly without the accessory. If the game does work correctly once the accessory is removed, then the game pak and the accessory may not be compatible. Check the game pak instruction manual.
Check the instruction manual for the game to see if it requires any special accessories to operate (such as the Super Scope, NES Zapper, SNES Mouse, etc.).
Do not blow into your Game Paks or systems. The moisture in your breath can corrode and contaminate the pin connectors.

My Super Nintendo is working, but won't show up on my relatively new television, can some one help me please? is there a lead or something I need to buy? thanks

Do you have your TV set to the "TV" input? There may be inputs such as "Video 1", "Video 2", "HDMI 1", "HDMI 2", "Component 1", "Component 2", etc., but the input you will want to have selected is "TV" (this is usually done by hitting a button labelled "Input" or "Video" on the TV remote). Once you are on that input, go to channel 3 (type in "03" on the remote), then turn on the SNES. It should now display.
If this doesn't work, double check the plug you have connected to on the back of the TV, it should read something like "Cable In" (not "Cable Out").
If you have checked all of that and everything is setup correctly, it is possible that you have a bad RF adapter (the grey box that connects the SNES to the TV). If this is the case you can buy one online for around $5 - $10; just google "RF adapter SNES".

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.

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.

Super NES is Driving Me Nuts!

Turning your console on and off *can* erase save game data. This is in the users manual. Intermittent operation on older electronics indicates an internal connection problem somewhere. See if Nintendo can direct you to a fix-it shop, as they no longer service SNES consoles. Failing that, ask local video game stores and rental stores where a good fix-it shop might be.
