Other Screen Problems

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.

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)

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.

Slide the Power Switch on the Control Deck to the ON position.
If the above troubleshooting doesn't fix the problem, see below.

SOURCE: Can you hook up a super nes without AV cords?

It is called an RF connector.Plug your cable coming into the house from outside into the RF connector,then plug the RF connector into the TV.The TV needs to be on channel 3 or 4,depending on what it is set on the console,to use the console.There should be a selector on the console back.If there is a strong broadcast on the channel you select to use,just change to the other channel.If you have the proper channel,the TV signal will go away and the game will appear.You do not need the A/V cables.

SOURCE: N64 and NES reset randomly

Well you know on how computers will redo them selves when they have an error in their software and programming so you see that an n64 consoles parts are similar to a computers piece but a simpler software so when it does the resetting it says im going to fix it but since that its impossible fro it to fix its self it will just only keep reseting over and over again then.

Sounds not working on super nintendo


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.well I guess that you will have to hook it up to a DVD player or a VCR player to have it work on a digital tv
Note: pictured above is the original Super NES. The redesigned Super NES uses the same hookup steps listed below.
Installation Steps:

Locate the Audio/Video inputs on the back of the VCR.
Place the yellow end of the Stereo AV Cable into the Video "in" on the back of the VCR.
Connect the red end of the cable to Audio "in" Right. Connect the white end of the cable to the Audio "in" Left. Use a slight twisting motion when inserting each cable and ensure the cables are firmly pressed into the input.
Note: If you have a mono VCR with only one Audio input, click here for a diagram of how the hook-up will look. The Y-adapter pictured is optional; you can also simply leave the white cable disconnected instead.

Connect the rectangular (gray) plug of the Stereo AV Cable into the "multi out" connector on the back of the Control Deck.
After system is connected to the VCR:

Insert the Game Pak firmly into the Control Deck.
Plug the Controller(s) into the front of the Control Deck. Use the far left port for player one.
Plug the AC Adapter into the back of the Control Deck. Plug the other end into a wall outlet.
Set the VCR's TV/VCR button to VCR. You can put a movie in the VCR, press play, make sure you see the movie on the TV, then press stop. This puts your VCR into VCR mode.
Slide the Power Switch on (toward Game Pak).
Turn on the VCR and locate the input select. It is often called: input select, AUX (auxiliary), Line, Line In, Input, Source, Select, In, or EXT (external). Switch the input select to show the Nintendo game.
The Game image should now be displayed on the screen. You are ready to play!
Recording Game Play

Set up the Super NES to play a game.
Insert a videotape and press Record. You can now tape your video game playing for posterity!

No picture


Well I had heard of the metal piece of the back of a super NES console round piece breaking off because it becomes loose over time periods or it can rust and then fall off. So to fix this problem you need to find another super NES console and swap the parts, if you find a broken SNES console with working internal parts you are able to switch the parts into the other one that you have and buy a bypass plug from Radio Shack the Source or circut city to put it back toghter. But it would be more easy to buy a new console and sell this one as it is.

Super nintendo turns on but not picture or sound


if you've tried 2 other super nes' and still no picture and sound.. don't you think it's the "yellow,red,white" cables that might be an issue? doesn't sound like a power cord is the issue at all if it's getting power to the "red light".... get a new y,r,w cable (sry.. tired and forget the name)
