Question about Nintendo 64 Console

1 Answer

N64 connections Hello! We just got an old N64 and having problems getting the picture on the TV. It's got 2 cables - one to the electric socket and the other an antenna connector. But... when we plug it directly into the TV (through antenna) we still can't see anything. Is there something else we need to do?

Make sure your tv is tuned to either channel 3 or 4 check the rf adaptor with the coaxal cable going into your "antenna" jack and make sure that its connected tightly as well make sure there is no bends or breaks in the cable as well.

you may also want to find some gamecube A/V cables since they will also work to replace that RF adaptor and right now ushally they are on sale in department stores and places like GameStop and EB Games.

"no signal" with N64 and sanyo tv. I have a sanyo


Well I think that you need a blue plug for it to work instead of
the tradditional N64 av cables.

I dont know how to set it up


- First you need a rather old TV, like maybe before 2002, if you have one. Because on newer TVs N64 graphics are terrible !

- Once you have your TV, check to see if you have two cables with your 64 (if you don't something is missing !). One shaped like a little box on one end and an electrical plug on the other : you hook up the little box to your N64 and plug the device in the nearest power socket. The other cable has a a strange black and rectangular input that hook up in your N64 and 3 sockets that are red, yellow and white. Connect the latter on your TV by finding the same sockets with the same colours !

- Connect your controller to the console (it's the round-ish sockets in front of it)

- insert your game

- THEN turn on your console. Don't turn it on unless everything hooked up !

(if it doesn't work you may want to try the famous turn-off-the-console-blow-into-the-cartridge-put-it-back-and-try-turning-your-N64-again trick !)

Good luck ! :)

Yes,corrosion and long term use can cause this to go bad,or a capacitor is out delivering signal to the cable.

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

Nintendo 64 - sound not working on new TV


Because the 64 is somewhat old I would suggest getting an aerial splitter because the system may not be able to function properly with out it. Try it and see how it turns out. Or, if you don't mind, you could play that game on the computer if you have one. Download Project64 from:

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.

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.)
