First you have to find out if the problem is with the AC adapter or the console.
Look at the console where the AC adapter plugs in. You should see a round plastic part in the middle of the receptacle with a small hole in the center. If it is broken or missing the problem is most likely the console. In this situation the easiest thing to do is find a new one from a reputable seller. The broken one is worth 10-15 on eBay.
If it looks good take the console and AC adapter to Radio Shack and have them test it for you. If the AC adapter is no good they should have a replacement available.

Also open up the console with a nintendo security bit. These can be found on ebay. There called 4.8mm bit for consoles, 3.5mm for games.

Get a digital meter put it one the diode setting/continuity. Or the ohm setting. There is a fuse to check.

On the old style snes with the eject button. It is near the plug for the power switch and directly in front of the 7805 voltage regulator. If this is shorted replace with a 1.5 am pico fuse. Look for F1 on the board.

On the new style it is under the metal heat sink. The marking is called F1

Thanks,

To get to these, you will need to complete the castle at the end of worlds 3 & 6 as super mini mario. Once you defeat the castle boss, mario will drop down the little hole, and go to the new worlds

My gamecube is now in black, gray and white then .


well I was playing my super Nintendo console on video 2 and I noticed that it was in black, grey and white then. So I had tried it on video 1 and it was in color. It could be the pieces where you put the av cables in or try buying a new av cable and a new rf switch then. Well the tv could be having issues then. Call a tv repair person and explain the issue maybe they can help. Do not try and fix the tv your self becuase it can cause fatalities I do not think that the graphics piece is dying but you never know.

I have two super nintendos and they did work but now there is no power when i turn it on.. ow do i resolve this problem, or do i have to find another one ? Thank you, Joseph


If you have two super nintendos and you use the same cable for power, its possibly the cable's fault. Try getting another cable first. And if that doesnt work i think you'll have to find another SNES

I just bought a super nintendo ''super famicom jr''. I turned the power button on and I didn't see anything on the screen. Am I supposed to put the game in first before I turn the power button on? I didn't...


Well yes you are supposed to put the game in before you turn on the system. another thing is that super nintendo doesn't make the same noises like most modern game systems do because those game systems require more electrical components. If the light is on its most likely working. If it still doesn't work it most likely has dust. you might want to blow in the game or the game console. Hope I could help.

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.

BROKEN adapter PLUG IN ON SUPER NINTENDO


The dc jack where you plug in the ac adaptor is worn out which is why it is chipping and also why you can't make a good enough connection for the ac adaptor so you can turn on the Super Nintendo.

What needs to happen is your SNES needs to have the old dc jack taken off and a new one soldered on.

If you can find another broken SNES that has a good working dc jack then take if off of that one and solder it onto yours and your SNES will work like new.

If you get no power at all then you might need to replace the power adapter. You can probably find one on ebay for cheap. If that doesn't work then the hardware may be fried, in which case you'll need to purchase a new one.
