Make sure your tv is set to the correct input mode. Also, if the power light is flashing with a game in it's because the 72 pin connector for the games in the console is dirty and worn out. You need to install a new one AND clean your games. Dirty games will just transfer dirt to the new connector.

Does not turn on.

It is a power problem and the troubleshooting should start from the electrical socket where the adaptor is plugged.Plug an equipment in the same socket to confirm if power is present.If there's power,the 12volts AC adaptor may be faulty.

Norwegian ac adaptor from NES on UK SNES

The adaptor SHOULD work, seeing as European SNES's use the same voltage. If you use an adaptor with a different voltage, you might need a transformer or voltage converter.

    I have got an original 1985 nintendo and just need the Ac adaptor for it to work again. i bought one on ebay and it was the wrong one it didnt fit. do you know what one to buy and where from?

    Search for the power supply model number NES-002. You can find several stores online that sell reproductions as well as several that sell used. A search of " nes-002 ac adapter" on Amazon returned several options.
