Question about Nintendo Super NES Console

1 Answer

I just bought a Super Nintendo at a rummage sale. The AC adapter was not included. The unit has one hole for the AC adapter. Can I use an AC adapter from another appliance? If so, which one Or where can I get one? Also the game will not eject. Does the power have to be on for it to eject? I probably got a bad system but it was cheap so it is not a great loss. Thanks for any help you can give me.

Red light dims on Super Nintendo

I do not think on that the red power light could burn out on an SNES console but you never know.
  1. ake sure you are using a licensed AC Adapter (the system's power cord). The name "Nintendo" should be molded into the actual AC Adapter unit. If it says "for use with Nintendo" it may be an unlicensed product Unlicensed products are not fully compatible with Nintendo systems and may not work correctly.
  2. Make sure you are not using any game enhancing devices. Such devices are unlicensed and are not recommended by Nintendo, as they may not let your system function properly.
  3. Firmly plug the AC Adapter into the AC Adapter port on the back of the Control Deck and firmly plug the AC Adapter into the wall outlet.
  4. Make sure your wall outlet works. To check it, try plugging a lamp into the same outlet where your system was plugged in. Turn the lamp on the verify the outlet works. Also, make sure you are not using an outlet that is operated from a wall switch (if you do, make sure the wall switch is in the ON position).
  5. Slide the Power Switch on the Control Deck to the ON position.
  6. Check to ensure that the AC Adapter is not damaged (i.e., the dog chewed the cable). If it is damaged, you may want to purchase a replacement AC Adapter.
What to do if Troubleshooting doesn't help
Due to the age of the system, we no longer offer factory repairs directly from Nintendo. Please click here to find out what options are available for repair or replacement of your product. If you simply need to order parts or accessories, you may want to check out our Online Store. Nintendo's Online Store still carries many parts and accessories for our older products.

What causes Nintendo Super NES game console to turn off when playing?

It might be a faulty AC Adapter Cable that stops working when you move the cable or it might be a damaged AC Adapter Port on your console(small plastic part broken off) that will power it off when you move the console.

How do I fix nintendo super nes console that resets during gameplay?

Well I think that the ac adapter is causing the type of a problem because the cord on the ac adapter that allows the SNES to give it its power in order to work is loose. Try using another ac adapter too see if it will make a difference.

I just bought a super nintendo off ebay and i went to plug in a ac adapter for it but i looked and i saw that the metal piece that sticks out from the system that goes in the ac adapter plug is missing all...

Well the round metal part where the rf switch is supposed to go into is broken off so you couls use the av cables for SNES and N64 instead of using the rf switch or you could of bought a crappy console then.

I bought a pack and play at a rummage sale and

Believe it or not, the rails will not lock unless the bottom is slightly raised up. Then you can flatten the bottom. Unlocking works the same way, be sure that the bottom is lifted up partially. Hope that helps, I had the same problem.

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.

It could be one of two things.

First and most likely is the AC Adapter is shot. It could have a broken wire in the plug or the AC Adapter itself could be bad. The quickest way to check for this is to take it to an electronics store like Radio Shack. They should be able to tell you if it is bad.

Second it could be the console itself. Look at the receptacle for the AC Adapter. There should be a small round plastic piece with a hole in the center of it that the plug fits around and in. These often break but you can usually get the console to turn on if you wiggle the plug around. It could also be an internal problem with the console. The only way to check for this is to make sure you have a good AC Adapter. If the light comes on the console is good. I have never seen a burned out light.

Either way the bad part would need to be replaced. Neither one is cost effective to fix and both are still readily available on various websites.
