I recently purchased a Super Nintendo off of eBay, and after getting it in the mail, I set it up, cables and everything, and turned it on. But here's the problem: The display is tinted green. I tried fiddling with the tint option on the TV, and still nothing. The games that came with the console were Super Mario All Stars (some of the catridge was covered in sticky tape) and Pilotwings, both when played have a green tint. Does anyone know how to fix this?

You only need to plug in the Red/White/Yellow plugs. Make sure you plug them into the correct colors on the TV. Most HDTVs have Red/Green/Blue ports. DO NOT use these ones, they are for receiving HD video signals. A lot of HDTVs also have the Red/White/Yellow plugs on the side of the TV (often labeled "Game", maybe something like "Video 3")
The Red/White/Yellow cables are known as RCA cables or Composite cables so look for any ports with those labels as well.
I see you are going back to the 90's with your Super Nintendo. Firstly I do not know how you can "put the snes on chan 3". If I am correct, all super nintendo cables to the TV are RV coloured ones. therefore once it is plugged into the TV, you will ant the A/V channel? which usually has a separate button.
Secondly if what you say that you get a flash/glimpse of the game, then check the system of your TV. Is it PAL (Europe, Aus, NZ, etc) or NTSC (U.S.) Hopefully you can change the TV settings to match your game console!
Well you could try this plan hooking up a DVD player or a VCR machine to the HDTV and then plug the super nintendo console into the VCR or the DVD player then. It might work after this. 4 stars if this suggestion works.
I don't think you would need to hook the SNES to your cable box but only to the TV using the Red, Yellow, White cables that plug into the gaming system. If you do not have those cables you can most likely find them for cheap on www.ebay.com
It does not work with new TV's. If you have an old TV then you just plug in the "Multiout cable" into the AV inputs which are usually in the back of the TV. If you don't have the "multiout" cable then you can by it on amazon or ebay.
