Channel frequency divisions in the USA are a little different and we need to fool our American Television.
Do not use the original Famicom RF cable that comes with the console.
Instead replace it with a common gray box American Nintendo RF cable. The NES, SNES, N64 and Gamecube RF is also compatible.
On the back of the Famicom Select "Game" and select Channel 1
Tune your Television to 95 and it should work.
If you have any difficulty select Channel 2 on the famicom and tune the to channel 96.
|Channel & Mode Switch|
OK Lets recap
- Don't Use the original famicom RF cable
- Replace it with a standard American version (standard gray box NES)
- The rear of the famicom has channel 1 or channel 2 output
- Channel 1 = American 95
- Channel 2 = American 96
Famicoms can now be upgraded to composite video! Works on all modern HDTVs and classic CRTs. No RF cables or weird channel settings required. I am offering this upgrade service for Famicom and many other classic consoles. More info here
