Question about Nintendo Super NES Console
In the back of my super nintendo where i hook the power cord the round plastic part is broke off ...how do i fix this.....
This is a common problem with the original version of the SNES console.
Unfortunately the fix is not an easy one. I fix these in my shop but I have done dozens of them. It requires soldering. There are two ways to fix it. You can replace the broken part which is soldered to the motherboard or you can solder on wires for a new receptacle.
To get the replacement part you would need to buy a broken SNES off eBay or somewhere and disassemble it to remove the needed part. If you find a busted SNES with a working motherboard you MIGHT be able to just swap it. I say might because I have found at least three versions of motherboards in these things and the mounting points inside the case are different for each of them.
To bypass the plug altogether you would need to find a new plug at Radio Shack and wire it up to the motherboard and attach it to the case so that the plug can be hooked up. You could also cut the plug off of the AC adapter and solder the adapter wires directly to the motherboard.
Like I said it is not an easy fix. It also has a high probability of not working if you do not know what you are doing. It might be best to just buy a working console from a reputable seller and sell yours as broken.
