well I was playing my super Nintendo console on video 2 and I noticed that it was in black, grey and white then. So I had tried it on video 1 and it was in color. It could be the pieces where you put the av cables in or try buying a new av cable and a new rf switch then. Well the tv could be having issues then. Call a tv repair person and explain the issue maybe they can help. Do not try and fix the tv your self becuase it can cause fatalities I do not think that the graphics piece is dying but you never know.
I do not think on that the red power light could burn out on an SNES console but you never know.
ake sure you are using a licensed AC Adapter (the system's power cord). The name "Nintendo" should be molded into the actual AC Adapter unit. If it says "for use with Nintendo" it may be an unlicensed product Unlicensed products are not fully compatible with Nintendo systems and may not work correctly.
Make sure you are not using any game enhancing devices. Such devices are unlicensed and are not recommended by Nintendo, as they may not let your system function properly.
Firmly plug the AC Adapter into the AC Adapter port on the back of the Control Deck and firmly plug the AC Adapter into the wall outlet.
Make sure your wall outlet works. To check it, try plugging a lamp into the same outlet where your system was plugged in. Turn the lamp on the verify the outlet works. Also, make sure you are not using an outlet that is operated from a wall switch (if you do, make sure the wall switch is in the ON position).
Slide the Power Switch on the Control Deck to the ON position.
Check to ensure that the AC Adapter is not damaged (i.e., the dog chewed the cable). If it is damaged, you may want to purchase a replacement AC Adapter.
What to do if Troubleshooting doesn't help
Due to the age of the system, we no longer offer factory repairs directly from Nintendo. Please click here to find out what options are available for repair or replacement of your product. If you simply need to order parts or accessories, you may want to check out our Online Store. Nintendo's Online Store still carries many parts and accessories for our older products.
First thing would be to try either EB Games or Gamestop. They carry a bunch of systems and accessories; I'm pretty sure they'd have what your looking for. Plus, if it's used you get a 30 day no-questions-asked waranty so if it doesn't work you can return it.
The problem is likely in the IC soldered to your SNES circuitboard. The cheapest way to solve your problem is to replace the whole SNES circuitboard. These boards run about 20 dollars, Google part SNSPT007 or SNSPT009, depending upon if you have the older or newer version SNES. There is no soldering involved, so it should be an easy fix if you can open your SNES.
Sounds like your AV Multi-out port circuitry is shot. Yest it with an RF adapter, and if it works perfect with an RF adapter, that is the source of your troubles. I'm afraid that the cheapest solution is to buy a SNES motherboard (about $20.00), which is a lot cheaper than a repair shop soldering in new components to fix it. It's not something you can do on your own.. Google SNES Motherboards type 1 or 2
i found you can take a small flathead screwdriver like the tiny one you would repair eyeglasses with and carefully bend the prongs slightly inward.i assume this made then come in contact with the ground in the center of the power adapter.
