It is common for buttons on any video game controller to quit working and it is usually an easy fix.

Assuming the cord is in good condition the problem is internal. Turn the controller over with the buttons down and remove all of the screws on the back. Carefully lift off the back. You are now looking at the back of the circuit board. Look closely at how the cord is routed through the plastic pins as you will have to put it back in the same location. Remove the cord from the pins and carefully lift out the circuit board. Turn the circuit board over and locate the contacts for the buttons. There are four on the left side for the D-Pad, two in the middle for the Select/Start, and four on the right for the A,B,X, & Y. These contacts need to be cleaned. A hard eraser works best. Reassemble everything and it should work fine for quite some time.

You may need to replace the controllers (are they 3rd party) if not then I think you can also check
the connection to make sure that there is nothing broke.

It is possible that you will need new cords. (It sounds like you power cord has a short in the cable somewhere, so it may need replaced too.) A new video cable may fix the problem, but if it doesn't, the SNES may be on its las legs. In that case, you will need to purchase a new SNES or just turn up the brightness on the TV.

My SNES was working while i was playing a game, i shut it off to put in a different game, and when i turned it on, it wouldnt work. any suggestions on what to do?


i to love the snes, i suggest to get a wii, softmod it, then install all your favorite snes games on it via wads. all your games will show up as channels on the wii and they play flawlessly. (no lagg) all you need is a classic controller or gc controller

I have a xbox 360 controller i want to use on my pc to play my SNES emmulator games with, i installed the software it asked for and my comp detects the controller but, it wont appear on the gamepad pannel...


use joytokey

http://www.electracode.com/4/joy2key/JoyToKey%20English%20Version.htm

The program attributes a keyboard key hit for a button pressed.

Assign a button to all the controller buttons and then you can set te snes emulator with the controler

Good luck
