Well, with our super nintendo, the plug in wire was crappy, so you had to have the wire turned a certain way for it to work......we still have never fixed it

It could be one of two things.

First and most likely is the AC Adapter is shot. It could have a broken wire in the plug or the AC Adapter itself could be bad. The quickest way to check for this is to take it to an electronics store like Radio Shack. They should be able to tell you if it is bad.

Second it could be the console itself. Look at the receptacle for the AC Adapter. There should be a small round plastic piece with a hole in the center of it that the plug fits around and in. These often break but you can usually get the console to turn on if you wiggle the plug around. It could also be an internal problem with the console. The only way to check for this is to make sure you have a good AC Adapter. If the light comes on the console is good. I have never seen a burned out light.

Either way the bad part would need to be replaced. Neither one is cost effective to fix and both are still readily available on various websites.

Super NES Console: My super Nintendo gets power (red light turns on) ...


Maybe the one that is not turning on to play game is broken then. Ensure that you have a known-good game cartridge inserted before powering on the SNES console. Most older, cartridge-based game consoles don't boot without a game installed.
Does the power light to the left of the controller ports turn on when you turn on the power switch?
If not, check your power adapter and outlet for functionality and good connection.
Check that the reset switch is not stuck. Wiggle it back and forth through its range of motion a few times. If something sticky gets in there it can get jammed in the reset position, which will prevent any game from booting.
You mentioned that there is no image. Are you getting any sound from your games after waiting a few minutes with everything connected and turned on?
If you hear game sounds or music from the SNES, but see no picture and you've already (really and truly) ruled out the cabling and TV, then you might have a bad main board in the console.
If you don't get any video or sound, then it's not booting your game. You can find other recommendations about how to clean game and console connections, but usually inserting and ejecting a game 10-20 times will knock loose or grind off enough gunk to get a game to boot. Try this, and be sure to use the eject lever instead of ripping the game out to avoid console connector damage. If it's still not working, repeat with another game.

Games are in black and white-no color


Make sure the cables are hooked up properly. Audio to the audio input and video into the video input of the tv.

If they are hooked up right and you still only get black and white pictures then the cable might be bad so get a new cable.

If you still have a problem even with a new cable then its something to do with the connector in the SNES or the main board itself.

SNES doesn't display?


The CIC chip, also known as lock out chip, may have gone bad. Here is a quote from a site I found.

"Every SNES control deck has a regional lockout chip (known as a CIC), as does every original SNES game cartridge. Before a game is loaded, the console will attempt to communicate with the CIC chip on the game cartridge. If the CIC chip doesn't respond or does not correspond with the consoles CIC, the console won't load the game. In most cases, a black screen is displayed."
