Question about Nintendo 64 Console

N64 problem Hey, The other day I went to get my N64 out, because I haven't played it for awhile now, I plugged it all in, but I can't find the channel anywhere! I want to play Zelda and the Ocarina of time but I can't find what channel it's on :( I even did a channel search but it couldn't find it... Any solutions?  Any would be great!!!

    how is it hooked up?



    RF switch, or RF modulator, or is it directly plugged into the TV?

Hey,
It is kind of hard to explain, but it is a chunky big plug at the end with two plug things (not the red, white and yellow ones but a really old type one), and you plug it into the back of the TV. I got one of my games to work the other day, I don't know how I got the channel, but it was working fine then I went to take it out and put a different game in (Zelda and the Ocarina of time) but the screen went blue and then it wouldn't turn on again so I'm really confused. 
Thanks anyway sorry if it is really confusing

Is your cable RCA, S-Video, or Coaxial? If it's coaxial, check and see if the channel is to 3 or 4. If it's RCA or S-Video, check which slot it's plugged into on your TV. Most likely, the cable's dead, as I've had to replace mine a good 4 times.

Bought a 2nd hand N64 & don't know how to set it up on the tv as no instructions.


You now need to find a channel on your TV that ins't used for anything else (eg an old vhs player or non-digital tv) then whilst on that channel you need to go into your TV's menu, there is often a button both on the remote and TV itself for this. This is where you turn on your N64 if you haven't already. You then will need to go onto automatic tuning (or if you prefer, manual tuning, in the programme section (if you dont have a programme section, just srcoll through each section till you find automatic tuning) your TV should then start to search for channels, after a little while of searching it should find the N64's frequency it may be a terrible picture that is mostly fuzz you can either carry on the tuning to see if it'll find it better or just head straight to fine tuning (if you decied to keep going you can still fine tune for the best picture quality possible and also if the TV doesn't find it just follow the previous steps till it locates the N64 again) once fine tuned you will need to store this new channel and then you can go ahead and enjoy countless hours of fun on the worlds best gaming console. (If the automatic tuning doesn't find the N64 at all try manual tuning). If you have any other issue with the console itself just drop me an e-mail at garleet@hotmail.co.uk. Hope I was a help.

How to stop the N64 from automatically turning itself off


Well if the console had blanked out on you and the red light is still on getting power. THis has happened to me half way through perfect dark while I was playing it froze and then the screen went black and then it went to the tv screen saying no siginal it means that the expansion pack has died on you then. So i tried a new expansionpack for my 12 year old N64 console at that time and it worked again. It could just be a easy problem then.
5 STARS UIF THIS SOLUTION WAS HELPFUL.

When I try to turn N64, the game won't pop up on the screen. I already cleaned the N64 and the game cartridge, but it won't show. The game is Golden Eye 007


I had a similar issue to this. I blew on the game contacts and it went. Don't know if it will work for you, but hey you never know.

N64 will not play on new TV and Stereo Reciever


maybe it's just the T.V I mean the N64 is like 10+ years old and you're trying to get it to work in a new T.V! I reckon that your best bet is to buy an older T.V to play it with or get an emulator e.g PJ64 on your computer and then you can still play your games

N64 has static and audio noise


If its got what looks like a cable jack plug, its an RF Cable. As is, if those get kinked up badly enough, the copper inside of them can become damages, which can affect the way it sends the signal to the tv from the N64. Those cables can be picked up from local game stores. my suggestion though, is if you have the connectors, go with the Red,Yellow,White setup, Red and White are the sound cables, and the Yellow is your video. Better sound from it.

Great clarification Nisha...
As with many other problems like this, check the input cable. it could be busted, and need to be replaced. Clean the contacts in the control deck, and in the cartridges.
