Rroblem you would need to buy another SNES console off of ebay or kijiji if you find a broken SNES with working parts you might be able to switch the parts and will need a by pass plug
from Radio shack to hook it up togther or you could cut off the attachment part and solder the wire to the console or use the av cable instead then. Like this has a 8 out of 10 chance of not working if you don't know what your doing.

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

I have just found my old super nintendo. Tried to set it up but im unsure how to do so. Can you give me step by step how to set it up?

Not to be rude but are you serious?
Do you have the SETUP MANUAL, it tells you how to.
If not then, follow these steps.

First, plug controllers to the front of the super nintendo.
Second, plug in ac adapter(power) to the back of the super nintendo(round hole).
Third, plug in video cable
-if it has a red, white, and yellow plug it into back of super nintendo and the front of the t.v.
-if it has a grey box with a wire coming out of it, plug it into the back of super nintendo and back of the t.v. where you will have to screw it in by twisting it to the right.

Now if its the three different colored wires, then it will be on the first video channel.
If it screws into the back of the t.v. then it will be on channel 3 or 4 depending on what the channel switch says on the grey box.

Put the game in with the picture facing you all the way in.
Now hit start and you should be good to go. If you get a black screen try taking the game out and blowing on it then putting it back in after all it is old!

And there you have it!

I have power to my super nintendo but no picture

One of my favorite systems!!! Super Metroid!!! 100%!!!! Wicked awesome!!!

If you have it connected throught the Coax (round screw on cable with a wire in the middle) make sure your connections are tight and your TV input is on the correct one.

If it's through RCA ensure your tv is on the right input.

If you have a coax and no rca, RadioShack sells universal cables for SNES, N64 and Wii all in one. Try purchasing one.

Good luck and please rate my solution accordingly.

Plastic part broke off my super nintendo where you plug the power cord in the back.

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.
