hi. i recently bought like 4 SNES a SEGA CD and an Intellivision (all broken)
and im trying to fix the stuff.. :D

after some examination ive noticed that the SNES had the following symptomes.

Test cart Super Mario World.
AV RCA cable.

1. Powers up, shows Nintendo Logo, starts playing sound but black screen.
2. Powers up, used to display picture and work but now its black but plays sound.(had a water damage but have been cleaned using electronic cleaning alcohol)
3. Powers up, shows picture but the background is red and sprites do look broken.. (some dont display correctly).
4. Had a cracking sound issue but is now fixed.

any kind of help would be useful.

It 'sounds' like you have a number of SNES with a similar problem, which isn't great. I like it better when they have different problems...

Apart from cleaning the cart slot connector really well with a toothbrush and a small amount of distilled water and alcohol, I can't think of anything. Make sure the game cartridge is clean. You can replace the cart connectors on the SNES, but you'd need a known working connector first, and all of yours sound like they have issues.

keep us posted!

well i know for a fact that the connector aint the issue since RGB and Sprite control is not controlled by the Connectors rather one of the ppu's question is witch one?. and ive tested the connectors on a working snes and they all work. and about the sound module i have 1 that doesnt work like it should and the otherones work since i get sound and the units boot up.
