Question about Nintendo 64 Console

1 Answer

I just tried to use my nintendo 64 for the first time in a while.

When i turn it on the screen just stays black and nothing else.....Excpet for Donkey Kong 64 (the yellow game). On Donkey Kong it just says nintendo and freezes there but all my other games are a balck screen. I shook it so see if i could find any problems and i heard a sound like a tiny ball or something was rolling around in there. Does anyone know what this means? Thanks.

I have trouble with my old N64 cartridges also, some work and some don't. Typically, I would suspect the cartidges as being the problem, but in your case, it's possible there is an issue with the game unit itself since none of your games fully works. Sometimes wiggling the cartridge and hitting the reset button can help get games running, if the cartridge connectors are a bit corroded.

My Nintendo 64 when I was in the middle of a game it froze and the screen went all black and then it went to the tv screen saying no signal then.


Well one time I had this problem with my Nintendo 64 console when I was in the middle of playing perfect dark the screen had froze went black and then it went to saying no signal on the tv screen. The console did not over heat to cause this problem. I thought that it had died on me but I had tried a new expansion pack and it was fine after that. SOmetimes the expansion packs can blank out in the middle of a game play they can die without a warning then. Or it can say expansion pack needed or it will give the white flash that it is turning on but nothing happens after that then.

My N64 Is Auto Restarting...


Well try leaning the gamepacks out with qutips and rubbing alchoal and buy new games to see if they work too. Im guessing that the mem cart that loads up the games in the console might be wearingout too.

How to play Donkey Kong 64 without Expansion pack


Donkey Kong 64 was one of only three Nintendo 64 games to require the Expansion Pak (the others being The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask and Perfect Dark), which provides 4 MB more RAM for enhanced graphics and more expansive environments, as well as to fix a game-breaking bug.We don't think that you can play this game with no expansion pack. I have tried to play perfect dark with no expansion pack and it was not all there then.

What is it about?


The N64 is the third home-console published by Nintendo and is the successor of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES). It was competing with the Playstation 2 and the Dreamcast.
The name Nintendo 64 comes from the fact that it was one of the first 64-Bit consoles. The "64" can also be found in various game titles like "Super Mario 64" oder "Donkey Kong 64".
The console was released in 1996 and the last game was released in 2002.
Which made this console popular was mostly the nintendo only milestones. The Zelda game (Ocarina of time) is among fans, still the best Zelda game ever released. It was also the debut of the first 3D Mario and Donkey Kong games.

You're talking about Donkey Kong 64 right?

If so, you need to buy an Expansion Pak.
