For this procedure you will have to first remove the upper case using the Gamebit. Afterwards you will need to remove the metal bar attaching the eject button to the system. Be careful not to loose the spring when you remove the bar. These steps will only require the Gamebit.

    In order to prevent damage to the fuse, make sure that you always cycle the power before doing so with the power supply disconnected.

    There is a step missing from these instructions. There are two philips head screws where the AV/Power ports are on the back of the motherboard that need to be removed before you can remove the motherboard itself.

    I replaced my controller port, thinking that it was the culprit, but my SNES is still having issues. Nothing works for controller port 1 and only a few buttons work for controller port 2. I tried switching out the controllers and the issue seems to be isolated to the SNES itself. Does anyone have any other suggestions for fixing my issue?

    Thanks in advance.

    For those facing a black screen on startup (after having cleaned pins on cartridges and cartridge slot) WITH power light coming on, turn off console, remove power, and try shorting out the capacitor leads. My SNES stopped working suddenly after a single power cycle, and shorting out the leads (while UNPOWERED) revived it.

    Could you further explain how to short the capacitor leads?

    • Pull the metal bar out through the right side of the eject lever.

    • Make sure to keep track of the spring located on the left side of the lever as it may shoot off when removing the metal bar.

    • When reassembling, the procedure becomes more difficult due to the spring (marked red). We recommend that one person hold the spring in place (picture 3) while another person slides the metal bar back into the left housing, and slide the eject lever onto the metal bar.
