SNES Care FAQ

I myself do not own an SNES, although I really wish I did. I do know people who own them however, and through them as well as things I've read, I know pretty well how to clean and manage one. It is much like taking care of an NES system, and really doesn't take much.

Caring for the System

You should clean the pin connector of the SNES every now and then. But how are you supposed to get those funky looking screws off? Those aren't screws you are looking at, but rather, security bolts. You can easily buy a secuirty bolt set at Lowes, Home Depot or a local hardware store, though there are other options such as Ebay and Amazon. To clean the connector, make a solution of 50% alcohol and 50% water. Use a q-tip to scrub it down. That's all there's to it, but if you feel like you can use an air duster to blow it out. These are normally used to clean computers and keyboards, and can be found at wal-mart, general stores and even Gamestop.

Caring for Cartridges

Cartridges are easy to clean. Just make a solution of 50% water and 50% alcohol, and use a q-tip to scrub the connectors. Keep doing this until the q-tip comes out clean.

Ever booted up a cartridge and found your save data missing, or not been able to save your data? if this happens, the save battery has died. You are going to need a security bit remover to open the cartridge. You will also need a cr2032 battery to replace it, which is quite similar in appearance to a watch battery, and can be bought at stores such as Radioshack. Br careful when removing the old battery, and take it easy. You don't want to cause damage to the cartridge. Simply insert eh new battery, being careful as to not damage anything, and then use some electrical tape to hold it in place. Beware that the tape may come loose eventually.


Caring for the Controllers

SNES pads are pretty sturdy, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't take care of them. If your buttons are sticking, take something like a toothpick and scrape around the edges of the buttons. This will remove any dirt that may be causing the problem.

Well, as a non SNES owner, I may be unaware of a few problems that are common to the SNES. If you know of one, please let me know in a PM. If you know the solution, be sure to include it as well.

Try my mentioned toohpick method. if that doesn't work, you might want to take the controller apart and examine the contacts.
