N64 has static and audio noise

I recently wanted to play my N64 which I use quite often, but when I put it on channel 3 and turn it on, there is a tremendous amount of static and noise. This has never happened before. I'm kind of an idiot when it comes to this stuff, so I have no idea what cable is plugged into the N64. It's the cable that connects the N64 and the TV. For lack of better words, it has one cable on the N64 side leading to this mini box, then another cable from the mini box leads to the TV.

I'm assuming it is the cable problem, but I don't even know what it's called and I can't find any remotely similar to the one I am talking about.

Help?

Thanks.

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.

I have a Static noise coming from the right channel of my mixer. I hear it coming out the right speaker as well as the right ear of my headphones (jack). How can I fix this?


That sounds like a bad connection but it can also indicate your mixer has a problem. If it occurs on all channels it is the mixer, if only one then the problem is in the input. Check your cables, they are a big culprut in problems like this.

My N64 isn't working. I put the game in and turn the power on but just get a blank screen. What do i do?


I would suggest checking all the leads are in properly and securely.

You may need to tune one of your unused tv channels to play it. Just turn the N64 on (with a game in) and tune the tv until the picture comes up. If this does not work then you might want to clean up the console and games by using a can of air to clean the dust or check the leads (especially the av/aerial/component).

Hope this helps

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

Can't find the channel for my N64


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.

N64 problem


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

N64 works but the Picture has loads of static


It sounds like it's most likely a problem with the AV cord you're using to connect to the TV or the ports on the TV where you plug it in. If you can, borrow a friend's AV cable and see if it works, if not then it's either a technical problem elsewhere or it is not hooked up correctly... Also make sure the TV is set to the correct input (Video 1, Video 2, channel 3, etc.)

White Noise Sound


Your problem is somewhere between the tuner and video detector circuit. The signal entering your TV carries: video,red color,and blue color as well as sychronizing pulses for color and horizontal and vertical deflection ( actually vertical sync. is derived from horizontal sync.) along with burst pulses to synchronize the color. After all these, the sound is an fm signal entwined with a pilot signal for stereo audio. WHAT a mess! After the audio passes through all this, it is detected and sent to the audio processor. If any frequency has drifted away from it's value then you loose the sound. SO... your problem could be in any of the tuned circuits or in the audio processor IC (chip). Any component changing value could creat this problem. Most likely the audio processor IC. You'd need to have the set checked out by a tech to find your problem. Stargazer
