Channel 3 is the correct channel. Blow the dust out of the cardridge and console and see if it works.

Original-Style Super NES RF to TV Hookup



Installation Steps:

Locate the TV's VHF IN [ANT, CATV, or 75(ohm)] or Cable Connector.
Disconnect the existing cable wire from the TV's VHF IN.
Connect the short, thick wire from the RF Switch (labeled ANT) to your TV's VHF IN.
Reconnect the existing cable wire (disconnected in step 2) to the silver post labeled ANT on the RF switch.
Connect the thin wire of the RF Switch (labeled Control Deck) to the back of the Super NES (labled RF Out).
On the back of the Super NES, set the 3/4 switch so that it matches the channel of the TV.
Note: The RF Switch does not produce stereo sound. To get stereo sound, connect your Control Deck to your TV or VCR using the Stereo Audio/Video Cable.

After the system is connected to the TV:

Insert the Game Pak firmly into the Control Deck.
Plug the controller(s) into the front of the Control Deck. Use the far left port for a one player game.
Plug the AC Adapter into the back of the Control Deck. Plug the other end of the cord into a wall outlet.
Slide the Power Switch to the On position.
Turn on the TV and set it to the appropriate channel (3 or 4.)
The game image should now be displayed on the TV screen. You are ready to play!
If after following these directions you are not able to view the game, try our Troubleshooting Tips.

Nothing happening when hit power button....


If you are SURE you have hooked it up correctly, and it sounds like you have, be sure you have it plugged in a outlet that you know that works. You shiuld see the power light come on after turning it on. If it still doesnt work, you have to contact ebay or the person you bought it from for a return.If you need help dealing with Ebay please let me know, ive had to do it b4. Here are detailed instructions and the Service dept number for NES Connecting the NES Control Deck to your TV set There are two alternative methods of connecting the NES Control Deck to your TV set, depending on your type of TV: EITHER: (1) Using the Audio/Video Cable; OR: (2) Using the RF Switch and Converters. Make sure that you are not trying to use both the RF Switch and the Audio/ Video Cable: only one is required. First, compare your TV with the following illustrations (1), (2)(i) and (2) (ii) to determind which method you should use, (1) or (2). If you have a VCR connected to your TV, see below. --- (1) Using the Audio/Video Cable (Note! If your TV does not have direct audio/video connections, proceed directly to Method (2) "using the RF Switch and Converters".) Control Deck Back of TV Set (or VCR) -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Video-out jack Video-in jack --- Audio/video cable --- Audio-out jack Audio-in jack Note! Color coding of TV connections may differ from that of audio/video cable and Control Deck. Nintendo recommends against using a rear projection television with your NES as image retention on the screen may occur. To facilitate connection to video recorders, etc., many TVs have special audio/video input jacks. If your TV has such a jack, connect the audio/video cable supplied with the NES between the audio/video out jacks on the NES Control Deck and the audio/video in jacks on your TV set, and then flick the switch located on your TV that changes the TV from antenna reception to direct audio/video input. When you use the audio/video cable to connect the NES to your TV, there is no need to use the RF switch or converters, or to touch the antenna on the back of your TV. For more information on direct audio/video hookups to your TV, consult your TV Operation Manual. --- (2) Using the RF Switch and Converters (compatible with most TVs) (i) If your TV has TWO SCREWS FOR VHF antenna connection, connect the RF switch and NES as shown below. If your TV has a VHF cable connector, please see below. (Note: The existing antenna/cable to the TV should be first disconnected from the TV and then reconnected to the RF Switch. This will allow the signal from the antenna/cable to reach the TV when the NES is turned off.) Rear of Control Deck --- RF Switch -- 75/300 ohm converter -- VHF Screws --- (ii) If your TV has a VHF CABLE CONNECTOR connect the RF switch and NES as shown below. (Note: The existing antenna/cable to the TV should be first disconnected from the TV and then reconnected to the RF Switch. This will allow the signal from the antenna/cable to reach the TV when the NES is turned off.) Rear of Control Deck --- RF Switch --- VHF Cable Connector Note: if a VCR is already connected between the antenna and the VHF terminals on the back of your TV set, the RF Switch MUST be installed BETWEEN the VCR and the TV as shown below: (Refer to the illustrations above for your type of TV connection.) With this hook-up you are still able to record TV programs while using the NES. Antenna -- VHF in (From Antenna) VHF out (on VCR, to TV) -- RF Switch -- TV RF Switch -- Control Deck --- Connecting your NES Components. - Connecting the AC adapter to the control deck Insert the AC adapter power plug into the AC adapter jack on the back of the Control Deck. - Connecting the controllers to the control deck Both controllers are identical and may be connected to either controller socket. However, the controller connected to controller socket 1 becomes Controller 1, and the controller connected to controller socket 2 becomes Controller 2. The distinction is important when selecting and starting games, since only Controller 1 is used to select and start games. NOTE: Do not insert or remove controllers from control deck during gameplay as this may cause game malfunction. --- Operating your NES - To Start Play 1. Turn your television on to Channel 3. (Note: If Channel 3 is broadcasting in your area and interfering with the game, set the television and the switch on the back of the Control Deck to Channel 4.) 2. If your TV has an automatic fine tuning control (AFC), turn it off. (Use the manual fine tune dial to adjust the picture after inserting the game pak as described below.) 3. Make sure that the power switch on the Control Deck of off. Caution!! Always make sure that the power switch on the control deck is off before inserting or removing a game pak!! Always check the game pak edge connector for foreign material before inserting the game pak into the control deck!! 4. Open the Chamber Lid on the Control Deck. Insert a Game Pak into the Chamber (label facing up) and push it all the way in. Press down on the Game Pak until it locks into place and close the Chamber Lid. 5. Turn on the power switch of the NES Control Deck and push the reset button. Note: If the "reinsert" indicator light on the front of the Control Deck is flashing, it means that the game pak is not loaded correctly. In this case, turn off the Control Deck power switch and start over from step 4. Note: When the game pak is inserted properly, a colorful game display should appear on the TV screen. If it does not, or the picture is imperfect, turn the Control Deck power switch off and then on again, and press the reset button. 6. Use the Select button on Controller 1 to select the game you want to play, and start the game with the Start button on Controller 1. Note: If you experience any problems in operating your NES, please do not hesitate to call Nintendo's Consumer Service Department, toll free, at 1-800-422-2602.

I cant tune in my nintendo do you know what its meant to be set too


Hi your NES should have on it's right hand side 2 Audio Video inputs have you tried connecting it to your TV via Audeo Video Cable and selecting Video channel on your TV dont worry about using the old RF switch they are for older TV Units. Here is a picture of what the AV Cables look like http://www.gameoz.com.au/store/nintendo-entertainment-system/nes-accessories/nintendo-nes-audio-video-cable-no-more-tuning.html

Hi i just bought a super nes system it came with RF switch power unit which i have connected to the appropriate connections, i have an LG TV with an golden eye and don't seem to be able to tune the...


Make sure everything's connected in the correct sockets. Turn the SNES on, change to one of the Analogue channels (one of the channels which you control with the TV remote) and start scanning for a signal. The RF cable has to be connected to the analogue port (where a TV aerial would plug in to get analogue channels) and the SNES needs to be switched on.

The alternative is to get a SCART-compatible cable that works with a Gamecube or an N64 and use it with the SNES, as Nintendo had the foresight to add an EXT port which'll let you play the SNES on an AV channel.

Hi i just bought a sper nes system it came with rf


If I am understanding...

If the RF switch comes with a power cord on it, it MUST be plugged in to work. Try plugging it in.

Also check your tv settings. I don't have an HDtv but I do know they have multiple options of "inputs"
If it is an RF modulator and not just a switch, check the settings on that as well. On the one I own I have to designate channel 3 or 4, that could make a difference.

I'll just tell you how to set it up with an RF cable.

1: Plug the power adapter in an outlet and plug the other side in the designated spot where it fits. Simple.

2: On the back of the SNES, there should be a switch that says channel 3 or 4. Whatever one the switch is at, it will be the channel to play it at.

3: From where it says "NES CONTROL DECK" on the RF switch, plug that into the SNES.

4: From where it says "TV" on the RF switch, screw it into the supplied ports on the TV. Note that newer TV's don't have this port.

You probably don't need to bother with the antenna port.

Enjoy the SNES! :)

Problem with NES


Check on the back of the nintendo system if it is on same channel as tv, little switch is on the back next to the power cord.

example..tv channel 3 and nintendo system channel 3

If that doesn't work your cable is not properly connected, You can't use both rf switch and av cable. It one or the other. rf connect in the back and to coax cable. Av cable connect on the right side of the system and front input on tv..


Make sure your games are clean also. Good Luck.
