Question about Nintendo 64 Console
I just bought a game for the nintendo 64 off ebay. i noticed that you can hear and feel something loose inside the cartridge, and that something is jiggling around in there. also, my game is freezing randomly.
so i have two questions:
1) what could be the loose piece inside the cartridge that is making that jiggling noise possibly be?
2) does that loose piece mean its automatically a lost cause and a broken game? lets say its my n64 console thats causing the freezing instead of the game; would the game still be playable with the loose piece inside?
There could be many things making that noise, my fellow N64 Gamer :)
It could be a few loose pieces of plastic that have broken off over the years, or it could be the chipset itself, which would be the reason why it's not working. By a special screwdriver off the internet (not more that 10 bucks) and open the cart to see what's making the noise.
As for the freezing up, if the chipset's moving around in there, it cold be freezing, if the chipset isn't moving, you could try cleaning the contacts on the bottom with a solution of alcohol and water.
