Re: game does not play

Its usually just a problem with the reading, just move the game, straiten it out a bit, try a different amount inserted into the reader, that usually solves the problem

Re: game does not play

No lights come on?, try another power cord and make sure the memory pak is inserted correctly and has not come loose, the memory pak is actually ram, if it's not getting a good connection then nothing's gonna work

Goldeneye deleted all it's memory randomly

Hello, n64 cartridges are outdated for that reason exactly. They have a small space to save game info. A quick off and back on is actually the way you reset the memory. Say you bought someone else's n64 and each game you loaded had saved info on it. Powering off and then turning it back on, would erase that data and allow you to start your own game. Once your 64 went instantly off, it reset/erased the saved info. Unfortunately there is nothing I know of to get it back. Sorry. Hope this helps though.

Hi we just bought a nintendo 64 and plugged everything the red light comes on but when we insert the game it flickers then the screen turns dark green and nothing. We have plugged and replugged, cleaned...

I say your N64 is obsolete at this point. May I suggest playing N64 games on your PC. A rom is a game that is 'ripped' from a game cartridge or cd of a game console (usually a console generation earlier than the second latest.) An emulator is what you run the rom in. The emulator is what allows you to use your mouse, keyboard, etc. to play the game. is a great source for roms. You can get roms for the N64, GBA, GBA, GB, GameCube, Nintendo DS and even some sega games!You search for your game, find it in the list of search results and download the game. This is a list of N64 emulators that are readily available for you to download. This is the root site of the link above. Please feel free to check it out. There are several other lists of emulators for other game consoles, handheld and home gaming.
Thank you for choosing FixYa.:) Have a nice day (y)

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.

    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

    N64 light comes on, but nothing comes on screen

    Make sure that the game you are trying to play is free of dust and other obstructions.  I know that the label on the back of the game says that you should never blow on the edge connector, but it doesn't harm the game. (Trust me I've been cleaning the connectors for years now, and it hasn't been damaged.  After you throughly rid the game of dust, do the same with the edge connector on the N64.  Simply hold the opening open and blow the dust out.  This should work.   Please give feedback!! Hope this helps!!

    N64 turns on but nothing shows up on the TV

    I have the same problem and from what I've read elsewhere on the net, it seems to be easily amendable by one of two solutions.

    - You can re-tune a channel on your TV (not one of the main ones) and it will find the frequency for your N64 to run on

    - If you had a gamecube the yellow, red and white output cables that came with that are (apparently) compatible with both the N64 and SNES and that way you wont have to tune your TV.

    Unfortunately for me, I did not have a GC and my TV will not re-tune due to the button on the controller not working! Good luck.

    Kirby 64 won't hold a save file

    The battery inside the game pak has died, thus, it can no longer hold a save.
    Buy a special screwdriver for n64 Game Paks. Unscrew the casing, then find the battery inside the Pak. Take it (the battery) to any store that sells watches, then ask for a replacement for that battery. Plug the batery (+ side facing you) in the Pak, then screw it back together.

    Your game should now save. :)

    Nintendo 64 expansion pak

    Barb3: The Jumper Pack (JP) is a bypass for the expansion cartridge. You were supposed to turn off the equipment remove the JP and then use the expansion cartridge. Your N64 Ram it's probably gone for good. Is either replace the RAM, which is hard to find or replace the N64. Sorry for that.... SithPitt
