Question about Video Game Consoles & Games

1 Answer

I am trying to get my old snes to work I plug everything up and when i turn it on the tv goes to a black screen i am using the original rf adapter that came with it model no:nes-003 nintendo rf switch. I also just got another snes online cleaned up and everything same problem black screen. The one i just got camee with red white and yellow pronged adapters that go into the tv i pluged those up and that didnt even do anything. I just tried to use my hook up that can be used gamecube playstation and xbox that went to the black screen but that might be because it wasnt ment 4 snes. I tried all hook ups on both snes and they do the same thing. Do I need a new rf adapter that goes to the snes or is it something else?

Hello,

Try the game with another TV to see if you will have same problem. If you do not have that problem that means the TV you are using is faulty.

Thanks for contacting Fixya.

My Super Nintendo is working, but won't show up on my relatively new television, can some one help me please? is there a lead or something I need to buy? thanks


Do you have your TV set to the "TV" input? There may be inputs such as "Video 1", "Video 2", "HDMI 1", "HDMI 2", "Component 1", "Component 2", etc., but the input you will want to have selected is "TV" (this is usually done by hitting a button labelled "Input" or "Video" on the TV remote). Once you are on that input, go to channel 3 (type in "03" on the remote), then turn on the SNES. It should now display.
If this doesn't work, double check the plug you have connected to on the back of the TV, it should read something like "Cable In" (not "Cable Out").
If you have checked all of that and everything is setup correctly, it is possible that you have a bad RF adapter (the grey box that connects the SNES to the TV). If this is the case you can buy one online for around $5 - $10; just google "RF adapter SNES".

Nintendo not working with flat screen tv


The RCA red/white/yellow output of the SNES will plug into any similar input on your TV. If you're missing that cable, do a search on 'super nintendo cable' and you can buy one.

If your TV has only HDMI and no component inputs, then Belkin makes an adapter for that.

You old zapper gun won't work on a LCD screen because the refresh rate of the TV is too fast,so no Duckhunt for you.

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.

The snes console will say its turned on but on the tv screen nothing will come up, is it broken? can it be fixed?


if your using an AV cable, make sure all the connections are tight both at the console and at the TV or switcher. if your using an old-fashioned RF switch, make sure IT is plugged in tight to the console. check to make sure you have a working game, or clean the cartridge (which often causes a blank screen of death)

SNES works but no color.


Sounds like your AV Multi-out port circuitry is shot. Yest it with an RF adapter, and if it works perfect with an RF adapter, that is the source of your troubles. I'm afraid that the cheapest solution is to buy a SNES motherboard (about $20.00), which is a lot cheaper than a repair shop soldering in new components to fix it. It's not something you can do on your own.. Google SNES Motherboards type 1 or 2

Snes screen jumps on certain tv


Okay, what I would try is hooking up the snes using the n64 cable. right next to the rf slot in the back of the super nintendo is a slot thats the same video output as the n64 you can plug in the rca cables from it and see if they work

Can't work SNES


Is the TV tuned to the same channel as the SNES ?
Both have to be set to channel 3 or both to channel 4.

SNES doesn't display?


The CIC chip, also known as lock out chip, may have gone bad. Here is a quote from a site I found.

"Every SNES control deck has a regional lockout chip (known as a CIC), as does every original SNES game cartridge. Before a game is loaded, the console will attempt to communicate with the CIC chip on the game cartridge. If the CIC chip doesn't respond or does not correspond with the consoles CIC, the console won't load the game. In most cases, a black screen is displayed."

I'll just tell you how to set it up with an RF cable.

1: Plug the power adapter in an outlet and plug the other side in the designated spot where it fits. Simple.

2: On the back of the SNES, there should be a switch that says channel 3 or 4. Whatever one the switch is at, it will be the channel to play it at.

3: From where it says "NES CONTROL DECK" on the RF switch, plug that into the SNES.

4: From where it says "TV" on the RF switch, screw it into the supplied ports on the TV. Note that newer TV's don't have this port.

You probably don't need to bother with the antenna port.

Enjoy the SNES! :)
