Question about Nintendo Super NES Console

1 Answer

Only a few games work

I have a really old (15-17 year old) SNES. The problem is the only game that works well is super mario world. All my other games such as star fox and f-zero dont work. i do have to admit my snes has a pretty screwy ac adapter cable.

The fact that any games work probably indicates the power supply is ok. The most likely cause of this problem is dirty game contacts. You can check this by the old blow on it trick. If you can get any of them to work by blowing into the contact area on the cart the game needs to be cleaned. A Q-tip dampened (not wet) with alcohol is the the easiest way to clean them. Keep at it with new Q-tips until they come out clean.

The reason blowing on games makes them work is because your breath is moist and the moisture helps make better contact.

I'd say it sounds like an issue with either the controller or the port on the system. My advice to you would be to try a different controller, and try switching ports on the console. The games should be fine, though.

Well maybe the console needs to be cleaned out esspecially if its filled up with dust and dander.
Dust causes video game consoles to over heat 10 times faster than their normal heating rates.
To clean out the console use a canned duster like for computers.

Was the game dropped or had any other damage afflicted to it? These things can happen if certain parts of the connector are chipped.
