I have all the correct cords for my Super Nintendo, but when I plug it in, put in a game, and turn it on there is just a black background with grey horizontal lines across the TV screen. I've opened up the console and thoroughly cleaned everything and have cleaned the games, but it still does the same thing. Does anyone know how to fix this??

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.
probly the connection in the rf adapter is crapped out. there is a cord that is sold with the n64 and gamecube( not sure about the wii) that can connect to the super nintendo. kind of a rounded rectangle plug with a bump at the top that has rca cords ( 3: 1 for video and 2 for sterio sound). look at the back of the nintendo and ull see what im talking about. there should only be 2 outputs. the rf and the other rectangle with a dump one.
the other cord was never sold with the super nintendo just the rf was sold with it.
so if u have a N64 or gamecube you can use their tv input cords
Is your game clean? (use rubbing alcohol on a q-tip to wipe the gold bars on the inside of the game)
Do you have a bad AV cord? (I think you can find new ones on ebay or potentially a vintage video games store that sells super nintendo games, they usually are willing to test it in store with a new cord).
Well yes you are supposed to put the game in before you turn on the system. another thing is that super nintendo doesn't make the same noises like most modern game systems do because those game systems require more electrical components. If the light is on its most likely working. If it still doesn't work it most likely has dust. you might want to blow in the game or the game console. Hope I could help.
Well I would buy a new super NES console then and yes people have had bought broken items off of ebay or kijiji for parts to fix their console so you could buy a new one from a repuatble seller and sell yours as broken then.
