Question about Nintendo Super NES Console
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.

It is common for buttons on any video game controller to quit working and it is usually an easy fix.
Assuming the cord is in good condition the problem is internal. Turn the controller over with the buttons down and remove all of the screws on the back. Carefully lift off the back. You are now looking at the back of the circuit board. Look closely at how the cord is routed through the plastic pins as you will have to put it back in the same location. Remove the cord from the pins and carefully lift out the circuit board. Turn the circuit board over and locate the contacts for the buttons. There are four on the left side for the D-Pad, two in the middle for the Select/Start, and four on the right for the A,B,X, & Y. These contacts need to be cleaned. A hard eraser works best. Reassemble everything and it should work fine for quite some time.

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!

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.

Well it has happened to me before once it might be a glitch with the console so I cleaned out the gamepacks and the carrtiage reader and it was fine after that.
