Nintendo 64 saying no signal when hooked up to HDTV

Trying to hook up a N64 to a samsung HDTV. Took it into a local shop and they got it working on their flat screen, brought it home with the new RCA cables and still says no signal. I've tried several types of games, tried blowing on the cartridges, and it's still not working. I've checked out the forums, and none of those solutions are working either. Please help!!

SOURCE: I'm hooking up a Nintendo

If you have it connected properly,it probably has to do with tv station select.Do you know how when you do a channel autosearch and it picks up cable anddigital channels?Well if you go into that menu,on my tv it shows 4 different possibilities.The first set is labeled DTV,second TV,third Cable DTV,fourth Cable.You may have to switch to the plain TV option and use channel 3 or 4 in that mode,because everything else is looking for a digital input,and N64 is not digital.I used to repair Nintendos for a full time job too.If that doesn't work,I am providing a link to N64 FAQ's and it may need repair,probably the RF cable or the RF transmitter within the console.I am thinking the TV solution will work though.
Good luck and game on! Greg

I have a Samsung flat screen tv and cannot set up a n64


Upon looking up your tv I realize it has no composite (yellow, red, white) input. Without that you can not hook up your N64. There are other options though. You could buy an RF adapter for the N64 (Gamecube, Super Nintendo, and N64 cables are the same) but by doing so you will lower the picture quality a bit. Or you can buy a component to composite converter (like this but if you shop around you could probably find a better one for cheaper http://www.amazon.com/Component-Composite-w-Down-Scaling/dp/B003FJKHBU ) Lastly if you have a DVD player or VCR that has component cables you could hook that up to your tv and then hook the N64 into it. Good luck!

I just got a nintendo 64, and I can't figure out how to get it work on my flat screen. It's a sony, and its an hdtv. The nintendo came with the three wire cable (Red, White, Yellow) and I've tried plugging...


You need to have a regular RCA input for the N64 A/V cable. Neither component or HDMI will work with the N64's RCAs. Almost all TVs still have RCA inputs on them. Look on you television for a set of three inputs (yellow, red, white). If your TV does not have these inputs, you cannot use an N64 with it.

Nintendo 64 to jvc hdtv


Check all of your plugs, make sure they are clean. Make sure the game that you have inside the system is clean and free of dust as well as the game connector port on the system. Make sure you are on your A/V channel. If all else fails, you ma have to gt a new A/V plug. When I got my Nintendo 64, I tried to plug it in to my TV using the plug that came with it, but it did not work. I soon found that the Playstation 2 A/V cable that I have also has two additional cables to it, and one of them works in the N64 system. So, I tried to play the system with that cable plugged in, and it worked, so I would suggest buying a new A/V cable that works in the N64 system.

Hope this helps!!!!!

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.

Says unusable signal when trying to hookup my Nintendo 64.


Here are a couple of things to try. Go into the menu and make sure that you have the "ANTENNA" selected instead of "CABLE". Also make sure that the channel that you are using (3 or 4) is programmed into the memory of the tv. If not, use "auto program" in the menu to program the channels.

These newer tv's are not the same as older tv's. If none of that works, put a antenna amp on the output of the nintendo and then plug it into the tv. This should fix it.

Nintendo 64 HDTV


I am not an HDTV expert but I believe they are all backwards compatible so the fact it is HD should not be a problem. Have you tried a vcr or dvd player on the same hook ups? It is possible you are trying to use a video input that is already in use? I know on my TV I have the DVD hooked up with an S-video cable to "Video 2". Right next to the S-video hookup are the red, yellow, white RCA jacks. On my TV these can't be used when the S-video is in use so I have to have the games hooked up to the front panel "Video 3". I would disconnect everything and try hooking the N64 up in each input to see if you can find one that works.
