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.

How do you erase memory from the memory pak


  • Plug an N64 controller into the "Player 1" port on the Nintendo 64.
  • 2 Place the N64 Controller Pack into the memory card slot on the Nintendo 64 controller.
  • 3 Insert a Nintendo 64 game into the cartridge slot on the N64.
  • 4 Hold down "Start" on the N64 controller.
  • 5 Turn the Nintendo 64 on via the "Power" switch on the device. After the console loads, the Controller Pack menu will appear on the screen.
  • 6 Release the "Start" button on the N64 controller.
  • 7 Browse through the saves listed, using the N64 controller's directional pad.
  • 8 Highlight the game you want to erase.
  • 9 Select the "Delete" option. The pages that were occupied by the game save will be erased from the Controller Pack.
  • 10 Repeat Steps 7 though 9 until you're finished erasing pages on the Controller Pak. Restart the N64 if you wish to play the game that was inserted into the device, or turn the Nintendo 64 off if you are done using the console.

    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

    My nintendo 64 channel is not 3/4 ----what is it then?


    Are you using the a/v cable from the N64 to the tv? The red and yellow cables?

    If so then you need to change your TV to one of the video channels like video 1, video 2, video 3, it would depend on what input you have your N64 hooked up to. if your using an rf connector then make sure you are using channel 3 and you might have to make sure on the rf connector that its also set to 3.

    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.)
