My GDSF7 had the same problems, and a new SNES deck did the trick. The 'fucked' console was from around when the SNES was released in '91. My guess is at some point the SNES cicuitry changed and the backup units were desinged with only newer SNES versions in mind.

So, if you're having freezing/glitching/crashing problems, might want to look into getting another deck, pretty cheap only $15-20 or so. How do you tell which one to get? Well the early SNES units used some cheap plastic that yellowed very easily over age, avoid those. Another way to tell, get a SNES deck that has the small grey warning label below the power switch. Worked for me.
