  • Blank Screen
    1. Make sure your system is hooked up correctly. This is the number one reason for a blank screen. To ensure all hookup connections are firm and correct, remove the AV cables and reinsert them with a slight twisting motion (this will help fully seat the connections). For more information about connecting the system, check the following hookup steps:

    2. Make sure you are using all licensed accessories with your system. Unlicensed products are not fully compatible with Nintendo systems and may not work correctly.
    3. Make sure the system has power. If not, go to the No Power Light instructions.
    4. Slide the Power Switch on the Control Deck to the OFF position. Remove the Game Pak and re-load it, pressing firmly to ensure it is locked in place. Slide the Power Switch on the Control Deck to the ON position.
      Important Note: Inserting the game with the Power ON may result in a blank screen. Always turn your system OFF before inserting or removing Game Paks
    5. There may be a problem in one of your hookup cables and not your system. Try purchasing a new connection cable (where to buy). You can also try borrowing the cable from a friend to see if it solves your problem before purchasing a new item.

  • Other Screen Problems
    1. Make sure you are using only licensed accessories with your system.
      We find that video problems occur most when an unlicensed RF switch is used. Make sure the name "Nintendo" is molded onto the RF switch, as opposed to "for use with Nintendo." Unlicensed products are not fully compatible with our systems and may not work correctly.
    2. Check all of the system connections to verify that they are firm and correct.
      • For AV connections
        Remove the AV cables and reinsert them with a slight twisting motion
      • For RF connections
        Make sure the channel switch on the TV and system are set to the same channel (either CH3 or CH4)
    3. Slide the Power Switch on the Control Deck to the OFF position. Remove the Game Pak and re-load it, pressing firmly to make sure it is locked in place.
      Important Note: Removing the Game Pak with the power ON will cause the Game Pak image to freeze on the screen. Press Reset to correct the problem. Always turn your system OFF before inserting or removing Game Paks.
    4. Slide the Power Switch on the Control Deck to the ON position.
    If the above troubleshooting doesn't fix the problem, see below.

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.

Black Screen


It might be your AV cable or the connector for the cable. Try it on another TV just to make sure its the SNES though.

Picture is only black screen with white lines


Are the console and the TV both tuned to Channel 3 or Both to Channel 4. On the SNES there is a little switch on the bottom of the back labelled 3 on one side and 4 on the other.

Super Nintendo games start but levels don't


try blowing inside the game cartridge and then the slot the game inserts into. I had this problem on my snes with some games and this helped. Other to that it may be the console is on its way out.

Ebay sell some really cheap snes consoles now. I picked one up for £15.00 with games.

SNES Game/System incompatibility?


check your connections, try cleaning your snes system with some rubbing alcohol (the party where the game connects to the system), you might have to take it apart to do that...

one way we use to do with the NES was cut a piece of paper out to fit inside the game, make it wet with rubbing alcohol, then push the game in and pull it out a few times (of course if the paper gets stuck you'll have to take it apart to get it out.

SNES's are pretty cheap so u may have to purchase a new one
