Why is my Nintendo 64 controller not working?

Well it might be that the controller ports might be loose or broken so you could find some one that repairs old consoles to have a look to see what the problem is then.

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.

    We are trying to clear a memory control pak on

    Not 100 percent sure but I believe if you hold down the start button on the controller when you turn it on, the memory card manager will show up.

    My nintendo 64 wont turn on

    You can open it up and clean it but its most likely the nintendo software board this runs everything in the system it controlls the Video and sound and sends signals to the controller to make the character move when you move around the control stick if you even could find another n64 that someone could give you for spare parts it would be easier to buy another one on amazon or e-bay for 30 dollars at the most for a system. I hope this helps.

    Can we play gamecubegames inside the wii console, if so how?

    You can do both. With internet you can download Nintendo 64 games on the wii shop channel. For game cube games enter the controller in slot one, enter the game and it's like you don't have a wii!

    Note: due to the fact the the wii remote does not have enough buttons ALL N-64 games need a gamecube controller or a classical controller. Game Cube games are not compatible with classical controllers.
