Super Nintendo Jr.
This method will give you good picture quality out of your SNES. You should use over RF whenever possible as the improved image quality is very noticeable. So let’s get started!
Plug the Nintendo RCA component cable into your SNES jr.. You use the cable with the end that just plugs in, not the end with the screw on it.
Attach the other end of the Nintendo RCA component cable to your TV. You could have multiple options available like on the diagram. You can place it in any one that is not in use. YELLOW is always the VIDEO and should be plugged into the YELLOW port. RED and WHITE (right and left respectively) are the sound and should be plugged into the proper color for the cable.
Plug the SNES-002 Power Supply into the back of the SNES Jr.
Plug the SNES-002 Power Supply into the wall.
Plug in a game and turn on the Super Nintendo, even if you don’t see it on the TV yet. Doing this first will help in finding the right TV settings, when you’re searching for the right channel or input and you see the game, you got it right!
Turn your TV to the appropriate VIDEO SOURCE. You probably have several INPUTS available from COMPONENT, VIDEO 1 2 & 3 and so on. In the diagram above you would need to change your TV to VIDEO 1. To change to these different video signal options, you usually have an INPUT button on your remote or television.
