Sounds not working on super nintendo


There may be a problem in one of your hookup cables and not your system. Try purchasing a new connection cable (where to buy). You can also try borrowing the cable from a friend to see if it solves your problem before purchasing a new item.well I guess that you will have to hook it up to a DVD player or a VCR player to have it work on a digital tv
Note: pictured above is the original Super NES. The redesigned Super NES uses the same hookup steps listed below.
Installation Steps:

Locate the Audio/Video inputs on the back of the VCR.
Place the yellow end of the Stereo AV Cable into the Video "in" on the back of the VCR.
Connect the red end of the cable to Audio "in" Right. Connect the white end of the cable to the Audio "in" Left. Use a slight twisting motion when inserting each cable and ensure the cables are firmly pressed into the input.
Note: If you have a mono VCR with only one Audio input, click here for a diagram of how the hook-up will look. The Y-adapter pictured is optional; you can also simply leave the white cable disconnected instead.

Connect the rectangular (gray) plug of the Stereo AV Cable into the "multi out" connector on the back of the Control Deck.
After system is connected to the VCR:

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 player one.
Plug the AC Adapter into the back of the Control Deck. Plug the other end into a wall outlet.
Set the VCR's TV/VCR button to VCR. You can put a movie in the VCR, press play, make sure you see the movie on the TV, then press stop. This puts your VCR into VCR mode.
Slide the Power Switch on (toward Game Pak).
Turn on the VCR and locate the input select. It is often called: input select, AUX (auxiliary), Line, Line In, Input, Source, Select, In, or EXT (external). Switch the input select to show the Nintendo game.
The Game image should now be displayed on the screen. You are ready to play!
Recording Game Play

Set up the Super NES to play a game.
Insert a videotape and press Record. You can now tape your video game playing for posterity!

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.

I have turn on the super nintendo but nothing happens my t.v. screen just goes to a black screen, the power is on and I have change the cord, is it possible that they system itself have finally give in?


if you can't even get the main screen of "Nintendo" to show up then it probably is a problem with the video cable. make sure the cable ends and the ports on the tv and consle are clean and connected properly. if that doesn't work then the cable is defaulty or the system isn't putting out a signal.
