I've got a nintendo64 and the games won't come up on the screen in the video function. it was brought into my house already hooked up to a tv and just needed to be plugged into electricity. you put the tv on video mode and turn on the nintendo and nothing happens. I've tried both channels 3 & 4. I've tried blowing in the game and the nintendo unit to get dust out. any suggestions?

The contacts on the game pak are corroded.. look at the end of it to see if you see a bunch of shiney contacts on the board.. if they are dirty looking you need to clean with a pencil eraser.. run on them and they will shine right up.
Usually if a Nintendo 64 won't start up even though it's connected properly, it's because the cartridge contacts are dirty. Try blowing out the cartridge slot with canned air, that usually works for me. If that doesn't work, you may also need to clean your game(s).
Whoever told you you need a scart cable is wrong, The N64 is an old console therefore requires you to plug it in via a standard ariel port. You then should turn you N64 on and search for new channels using your TV menus to either automatically search for them or you can tune your tv manually. either way you will probably need to fine tune afterwards.

Maybe you don't have the right input on the TV. Try changing that. You can find the button usually on the top of the TV remote, it should say "TV/Input," or "Source." Scroll through the different inputs until the game appears on the screen.
Is your game clean? (use rubbing alcohol on a q-tip to wipe the gold bars on the inside of the game)
Do you have a bad AV cord? (I think you can find new ones on ebay or potentially a vintage video games store that sells super nintendo games, they usually are willing to test it in store with a new cord).
Wow, the classic Nintendo 64. That was my first gaming system. I do know that the 64 has default RCA cords (Red, Yellow, White). They are required to be inputed into your TV. Make sure the 64 is plugged into a power source and that it turns on. Make sure that your game actually works. Clean out your 64 by using a can of compressed air, do the same to your game.
Finally try to start it up.
