I recently got ahold of a SNES for $13 (cheap I think) complete w/2 joysticks, power sup, and rf adaptor. When I first received it, I plugged it in and turned it on and the red light in front came on. See, I have NO games for the system (yet) so this is basically all I can do to test the system. Later, I just flipped the power switch without the power supply plugged in, and the power light came on for a second and then went out! I am assuming this was just discharge of electricity held in the unit. Well, I got done re-wiring my systems and plugging them all in, and now, when I turn the SNES on it doesn't light up power! I really don't know much about the SNES. I kind of passed it by while I was either drunk or in my Genesis world back then. I know the Jaguar needs a cart inside it to power up, is this (HOPEFULLY) the same situation on the SNES? Or did it just go bye bye?
