Question about Nintendo Super NES Console

Nothing on the TV when I play Super Nintendo

When I got back my Super Nintendo, which was working last time I saw it (in 2004, and the person I lent it to said it worked despite a faulty AC Adaptor, which I have replaced) I plugged everything in, and while the console is on, nothing shows on the TV (I have plugged in RF and AV) I'm thinking it might be the AV cables, as the games likely working. Note that I have a PAL region console, as I live in a PAL region.

Re: Nothing on the TV when I play Super Nintendo

I've tried 2 sets of AV cords with mine. Still nothing. Anyone got any ideas?

It has to be the av connector as if you are turning on the console something would flash on the screen in any case

I hooked up my Super Nintendo to my LG M2262D via the RF Lead, I have a black screen and nothing else.

Well I think that you need the av cable for your super nintendo console to work on a digital tv then.

Super Nintendo won't show any picture or sound even though it reads a signal.

Try pushing down and back lightly on the cartridge while turning it on.Used to work for me.You can also clean the game contacts with rubbing alcohol.Hope this helps...
