I need help connecting my super nintendo system to a lcd screen. I saw a similar thread from 2012 but I didn't know what they were talking about. Is there some place with pics that shows me? Can't post pics here... so my box has a little out box thinger that says antenna... on old tvs that was what we plugged into the back - it has a single pin and is like cable. The TV has red and white jacks, no yellow and it has an antenna jack that the cable thinger fits.

You can see I have technical prowess - RAWR!

I also have one of those adapter boxes that were around briefly when dvd players came out and old tvs couldn't connect. It has the red white and yellow jacks and I have cables that are triplicate(R Y W) and double ended.

Please make it go

what happens when you put a stick in a nonstick pan? Yeah, you think about that

Does your TV have the Red/Yellow/White jacks? If so, then you should easily be able to get a video cable (for SNES, N64 or GameCube, it's the same cord whichever system they say it's for) from ebay quite easily.

No Yellow? I wonder if it's like my Sharp LCD TV which has a component (red/blue/green) jack which also doubles as a composite (on my TV, I think it is the green jack which is used as the composite (yellow) video and I push the Input button on the remote to choose which mode the jack should operate in.
(I think the video would otherwise give a picture but wrong/single color.)

If the TV has component inputs, you can still plug in a composite cable. The colors on the plugs won't match up, but it should still work.

the color of the cords is irrelevant, just plug the cord from V into the corresponding one to the tv, the other two are always audio

if you have trouble finding the channel, a lot of the LCD/LED tv's have a signal auto detect and may not let you change to the channel your input is on unless the power is on, but if you brought up the menu before you turned the power to your device on, it will often still not show up as an avail channel, so make sure you are on a broadcast channel and not on the channel/input select menu or just turn the tv is off, then turn the SNES (or any other device) on, then either turn the tv on or select the input menu, all should be well by then

good gaming sir

@Batcave65
multi-A/V input, HDMI output converter boxes have been out for many, many years, usually $15-$20, making a special cable just for the SNES not only seems wasteful, but sounds like a scam, because I guarantee they won't charge no $5-$10 for that cord

@KingMike uh... just red and white... there is one jack that is half green and yellow so I tried that but I am not getting anything. It is set to ch 3 on the box, but nothing... tried ch4 nothing. That's why I was figuring i have done something wrong. Why can we not post pics here?? I mean an active community can remove the garabage pics

OK so back of the tv,when it is facing me goes from right to left :
cable in/antenna - red • white • red • blue • green/yellow and above those is an HDMI and something called RGB in

@ReaderRagfish idk what a composite plug means... :/

@Nemodius lol Madame if we are being all formal about it I can manually tell it to go to channel 3 or 4... but it will offer me CH-3-1 and other variations but the channels all are the same, nothing showing up. The system works unless something somehow breaks down just sitting on a shelf (dry room closet). If it was the game cartridge I would get something on the input channel so I am figuring the signal is just not happening. I really wish I could post pics...

The Channel 3/4 switch only applies to the RF output.
I haven't actually had my TV connected to actual TV in some time so I don't know if it still works.
I see my TV has an "Antenna/Cable" RF port, but I don't know if it is still compatible due to the switch from analog (which the SNES was designed for) to digital. Are those digital tuners in new TVs?
I would expect it to not make sense for TV manufacturers to support analog since government shut it down (in the US, it was in 2009). But maybe I'm misunderstanding something?

@KingMike The ports still accept an analog signal, so the RF adapters still work
That analog to digital thing for us was just regarding Over-the-Air feeds changing to digital transmission. It's like a legacy port
