Try the 'AV' button on your remote. hitting this button repeatedly will cycle all the AV inputs on your TV. Chances are you are plugged into one of those and not a normal 'TV Channel'.
The button on my Sony remote that does this, is a square with an arrow.

I have the first nintendo nes and i dont have the rca's i have the one you hook through the cable and it comes on but i cant find the channel to put it on to play the game ! What am i doing wrong ?


Original-Style Super NES RF to TV Hookup



Installation Steps:

Locate the TV's VHF IN [ANT, CATV, or 75(ohm)] or Cable Connector.
Disconnect the existing cable wire from the TV's VHF IN.
Connect the short, thick wire from the RF Switch (labeled ANT) to your TV's VHF IN.
Reconnect the existing cable wire (disconnected in step 2) to the silver post labeled ANT on the RF switch.
Connect the thin wire of the RF Switch (labeled Control Deck) to the back of the Super NES (labled RF Out).
On the back of the Super NES, set the 3/4 switch so that it matches the channel of the TV.
Note: The RF Switch does not produce stereo sound. To get stereo sound, connect your Control Deck to your TV or VCR using the Stereo Audio/Video Cable.

After the system is connected to the TV:

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 a one player game.
Plug the AC Adapter into the back of the Control Deck. Plug the other end of the cord into a wall outlet.
Slide the Power Switch to the On position.
Turn on the TV and set it to the appropriate channel (3 or 4.)
The game image should now be displayed on the TV screen. You are ready to play!
If after following these directions you are not able to view the game, try our Troubleshooting Tips.

When i plug my snes to my tv it wont work :/ i plug the cable to tv and put the snes on chan3 then i go on channel 3 with my tv and it show me a black screen ,sometime i hear 2 sec of the game music :/


Hi pikapike,

I see you are going back to the 90's with your Super Nintendo. Firstly I do not know how you can "put the snes on chan 3". If I am correct, all super nintendo cables to the TV are RV coloured ones. therefore once it is plugged into the TV, you will ant the A/V channel? which usually has a separate button.

Secondly if what you say that you get a flash/glimpse of the game, then check the system of your TV. Is it PAL (Europe, Aus, NZ, etc) or NTSC (U.S.) Hopefully you can change the TV settings to match your game console!

Hope this helps,

Can you hook up a super nes without AV cords? I have 2 cords, 1 is power and 1 connects to an antenna-like input.. do you need AV cords aswell??


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.

I have just found my old super nintendo. Tried to set it up but im unsure how to do so. Can you give me step by step how to set it up?


Not to be rude but are you serious?
Do you have the SETUP MANUAL, it tells you how to.
If not then, follow these steps.

First, plug controllers to the front of the super nintendo.
Second, plug in ac adapter(power) to the back of the super nintendo(round hole).
Third, plug in video cable
-if it has a red, white, and yellow plug it into back of super nintendo and the front of the t.v.
-if it has a grey box with a wire coming out of it, plug it into the back of super nintendo and back of the t.v. where you will have to screw it in by twisting it to the right.

Now if its the three different colored wires, then it will be on the first video channel.
If it screws into the back of the t.v. then it will be on channel 3 or 4 depending on what the channel switch says on the grey box.

Put the game in with the picture facing you all the way in.
Now hit start and you should be good to go. If you get a black screen try taking the game out and blowing on it then putting it back in after all it is old!

And there you have it!

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.

My nintendo 64 channel is not 3/4 ----what is it then?


Are you using the a/v cable from the N64 to the tv? The red and yellow cables?

If so then you need to change your TV to one of the video channels like video 1, video 2, video 3, it would depend on what input you have your N64 hooked up to. if your using an rf connector then make sure you are using channel 3 and you might have to make sure on the rf connector that its also set to 3.

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! :)
