Question about Nintendo Super NES Console

1 Answer

My SNES works just fine, however when I play ANY game, there are multiple vertical lines throughout the screen. These lines do NOT go the entire length of the screen, just portions, but there are many of them. Granted this issue does not affect my gameplay in anyway, it'd be nice to have them gone. Any ideas? I'm thinking I may need a new pin connector, but I wanted some opinions. Thanks!

If you're playing on an original console, it is unfortunately not surprising that these things are happening. The SNES is quite an old system by now, and the internal components that it was made with were not really built to withstand 20+ years of wear-and-tear. There are people that will rebuild and repair consoles for you, but it is often more cost-efficient to buy a new system. I have seen an original SNES at many used game stores, some even for $20. As much as it sucks, those things just weren't built to last forever, and being that you tried multiple controllers and multiple games, the only conclusion I can draw is that some internal component is no longer working.

Graphical Failure after 30 minutes


Nothing really you could do unless your good with a solder ....sounds like when if runs games it starts to over heat and the connection on the video output internally is getting loose. The system doesnt run as hard when it plays a dvd but once a game goes in it needs alot more to keep playing it ...i would take it to a computer repair shop or contact xbox them self i thing they extended there warranty's... hope this helped you out a little.

Dead RF-out on SNES and vertical lines on Multi-out


The problem is likely in the IC soldered to your SNES circuitboard. The cheapest way to solve your problem is to replace the whole SNES circuitboard. These boards run about 20 dollars, Google part SNSPT007 or SNSPT009, depending upon if you have the older or newer version SNES. There is no soldering involved, so it should be an easy fix if you can open your SNES.

If it's a flat screen especially, there will be major resolution problems. I know the laser gun doesn't work at all on flat screens and some newer TVs. You gotta play NES on an old school TV any way. It makes the experience much more authentic.

Vertical lines show up on my SNES picture of any game.


Do you have a third party AC adapter for it? If you aren't using the original one, check its voltage. Mine was a 9V instead of a 10V and while it allowed the machine to run, I got visual distortion effects similar to what you describe. If it isn't a 10V adapter, go to Amazon and get a real one instead of a cheap third party one. I got this one (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00009ZKWC) and it works great!
