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.
Good Luck.

Why does nintendo super nes cycle power during play?


Hmmm I think that the acapapter is causing this problem then because the black cord on the ac adapter that hook into the console the wire is fraying or broken then and going bad on you so try using a new ac adapter too see if it makes difference or not.

I have a super nintendo but not sure if i have the right cords i was woundering if you would know the numbers that are on the back of the cables or the power cable thanks


Note: pictured above is the redesigned Super NES. The original Super NES uses the same hookup steps listed below.

Installation Steps:

Locate the Audio/Video inputs on the back of the TV.
Place the yellow end of the Stereo AV cable into the Video "in" on the back of the TV. 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 television 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 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 system. Use the far left port for player one.
Plug the AC Adapter into the back of the system . Plug the other end into a wall outlet.
Slide the Power Switch on (toward Game Pak).
Turn on the TV 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!
If after following these directions you are not able to view the game, try our Troubleshooting Tips.

We are trying to set up an old super nintendo we have rf adaptor hooked up and its set on right channel but its not showin on tv


probly the connection in the rf adapter is crapped out. there is a cord that is sold with the n64 and gamecube( not sure about the wii) that can connect to the super nintendo. kind of a rounded rectangle plug with a bump at the top that has rca cords ( 3: 1 for video and 2 for sterio sound). look at the back of the nintendo and ull see what im talking about. there should only be 2 outputs. the rf and the other rectangle with a dump one.

the other cord was never sold with the super nintendo just the rf was sold with it.

so if u have a N64 or gamecube you can use their tv input cords

Can you hook up a super nes without AV cords? I have 2 cords, 1 is power and 1 connects to an antenna-like input.. do you need AV cords aswell??


It is called an RF connector.Plug your cable coming into the house from outside into the RF connector,then plug the RF connector into the TV.The TV needs to be on channel 3 or 4,depending on what it is set on the console,to use the console.There should be a selector on the console back.If there is a strong broadcast on the channel you select to use,just change to the other channel.If you have the proper channel,the TV signal will go away and the game will appear.You do not need the A/V cables.
