I haven’t played a snes in 20 years.

I have the adapter,console,8 games and a new tv.The sound plays just fine,yet no picture.I’ve tried everything under the sun,nothing works.the red,white and yellow buttons are not side by side on the tv.Maybe this is why there’s no picture and only sound?

I take it i need a rf connector,right?

I can upload a picture of the ports behind the tv if you anyone wishes to see them knowing what we’re dealing with here.

I can’t image how horrible the picture quality would be if you used RF on an HD television.

Your TV might not have ports for composite (A/V).. You might need to buy an A/V to HDMI converter/upscaler.

Please do share some pictures if you could.  Is it possible that you’re connecting composite cables to a component input?

 

In any case, Antarch’s suggestion of using a composite to HDMI upscaler is a good one.   A cheap, serviceable one shouldn’t cost too much.

 

Lastly, there’s always the Retron 5, which plays SNES games and can be connected with HDMI, though it is a bit expensive.

Now playing: SNES - Phalanx, R-Type III, Genesis - Bio Hazard Battle, PS3 - Dragon's Crown
