Question about Nintendo 64 Console

1 Answer

AV troubles I have an N64 that has work very well in the past but now I'm having severe problems with the AV output. I have tried a myriad of different things including the logical and outrageous. Here are a list of things that I have tried: Cleaning the Multi out on the system. Cleaning the AV cord (note: I have two I have tested both on my SNES and Gamecube and they both work fine) Tried on a VCR Tried directly on TV Tried on multiple TVs Cleaned the system Cleaned the games Inserted the game in different ways Inserted the AV cords differently So I have no idea what else I can do. I have a bad feeling it's the system but you never know.any insight would be great.

    I played this from 1997-2005. Now guess what? I pulled it out of the attic and on the bottom, a RED light came on and the screen was black!

The red light is supposed to come on. Dur. XD
If the cable works on other systems, except for your n64, even though you cleaned it. Yeah, you'll probably have to buy a new one. Sorry.

As for Lizer, try a new cable, as that's usually 90% of the time which is wrong with these machines. Cleaning the contacts in the control deck will definatly help too.

the tradditional N64 av cables.

I bought a N64. I have everything plugged in, but the N64 only has a red light, and the TV says no signal on every output.


I had an issue like this with my 14 year old N64 console so I tried a new expansion
pack in it and it worked again after that then. It could just be that.

My Tv doesn't display the N64 game. No sounds come out also.


What you need to do is, first check the tv av input is working, use a dvd player or any other device with the red, white and yellow plugs.
If it works, the problem may be the nintendo AV cable, they are cheap and worth the few bucks to re live all those nostalgic game moments. If replaceing the AV cable doesnt work, check all the solder joints around the AV socket on the N64 main board. I hope this helps. Good luck.

N64 turns on but nothing shows up on the TV


I have the same problem and from what I've read elsewhere on the net, it seems to be easily amendable by one of two solutions.

- You can re-tune a channel on your TV (not one of the main ones) and it will find the frequency for your N64 to run on

- If you had a gamecube the yellow, red and white output cables that came with that are (apparently) compatible with both the N64 and SNES and that way you wont have to tune your TV.

Unfortunately for me, I did not have a GC and my TV will not re-tune due to the button on the controller not working! Good luck.

Is my n64 broken?


You might have a dead N64 bro. Alot of quality games on that system too.

You can usually find them on Ebay for fairly cheap

In order to play a different region game on a different region TV (example playing a PAL game on a NTSC tv) your tv needs to be automatic enabled. Some tv's have an option on the remote to change the input signal to PAL NTSC or SECAM. If your tv does not have that then there is literally nothing you can do apart from get a different tv with this feature.
