Bust-A-Move 2 Arcade Edition Video N64 Problem

I've cleaned my cartridge with q-tips. The game works fine and everything works until the game itself actually starts. Then the screen goes blank. I can still hear the sound. When the round ends and it counts down to the Game Over screen the video returns. Is there anything I can do to fix it?

How to get those old NES,SNES and N64 games to work properly - NEVER BLOW INTO...

A very common myth i have seen over the years even since 1992 to present day has been to blow into the cartridge will get the games to work when you insert it into the Nintendo 64 even for all the other systems that used cartridges that preceded it (NES SNES etc) I don't know how many times i have seen this ritual before. That is not how you should clean your old game system cartridges, this is what you should do to clean your electronic devices:

1.Now, what you must do instead is to get some isopropyl 70% alcohol and a q-tip.

2.Pour some of the alcohol onto the q-tip so that it is soaked.Only a bit is necessary.

3. Now clean the copper metal contacts in cartridge, with the wet q-tip clean any dirt and grime that you can find on the these contacts (the metal areas on the part that looks like a computer chip). Keep on scrubbing away at the contact till it looks clean, repeat if necessary and apply as much force to scrub away at the dirt. Make sure it looks shiny. <<it is not necessary to open

4. Insert your game cartridge and enjoy!
5. You might want to try the same method of using alcohol and a q-tip for cleaning the contacts of the actual system.

If you were one of those who blew into the cartridge, all you were doing were spreading germs and bacteria and possible food onto the cartridge making it worse acting as an insulator and impurities. Electronic devices do not like impurities and must be kept clean of dirt, especially the contacts so that they can conduct electricity properly.

My N64 has been having the same problem lately with my Majora's Mask game losing sound, the picture going weird and eventually freezing this happens aprox 1 to 2 hours after i start playing the game. What...

Does this happen with other games? If so, it's the console, becasue working N64 consoles are difficult to find. If not, it is the cartridge, and you might want to clean it.

The red light comes on for my n64 but nothing happens

Hi there, At a guess Id say the contacts on the Game Cartridge are dirty, you could try a couple of things:
  1. Blow on the contacts on the Cartridge and then push firmly into the N64 - Test game, if doesn't work move to next step
  2. Get some rubbing alcohol solution and a cotton bud and gently clean the contacts on the cartridge - Test game, if doesn't work move to next step
  3. Get some rubbing alcohol solution and a cotton bud and gently clean contacts in the N64 console cartridge slot - Test game

Cartdride wont read

Take a can of air and blow it into the cartridge slot on the N64. Then also whatever game you decide you want to play, take a q-tip and dip it into some water, then clean the contacts on both sides of the cartridge in a sweeping motion. That will remove the dirt thats on the contacts. Then take a dry q-tip and wipe off both sides of the contacts of the cartridge.

That should resolve it. If it doesn't, try a few more cartridges and clean them and at that point if the system still won't load the cartridges properly then the main board is bad and you would need a new system.

N64 isn't working with Vizio HDTV...

Do this, hook it up to another tv just to make sure that the N64 is workig properly. If it works on another tv then you know the system is fine. If it doesn't work on another tv then it could be that you have dirty games and you need to clean the contacts and then reinsert them into the system and get them to work.

Keep the system on a known good working tv until you can get your games to work and display properly. You can clean the games by using a damp q-tip and wiping the contacts on the bottom of the game back and forth a bunch of times, there will probably be all kinds of black that comes off.

keep on trying games untill you get one to work and display properly, then go ahead and move the tv to the one you want it to work on and test it out and it just might work then.

How to clean an Game Shark 3.2 pak and also an 3.3 pak?

A newer pack will be able to use cheats on it.
You can clean ALL your packs AND your game deck by diluting:
A cup of water
and a capful of Rubbing Alcohol

Mix them together, then rub the solution over the contacts of the carts and the game deck with a Q-Tip.

I did this, and I have not needed to blow into the cartridges yet, even though it's been a good 9 months since I've cleaned them.
