SOURCE: something inside n64 game cartridge

There could be many things making that noise, my fellow N64 Gamer :)
It could be a few loose pieces of plastic that have broken off over the years, or it could be the chipset itself, which would be the reason why it's not working. By a special screwdriver off the internet (not more that 10 bucks) and open the cart to see what's making the noise.

As for the freezing up, if the chipset's moving around in there, it cold be freezing, if the chipset isn't moving, you could try cleaning the contacts on the bottom with a solution of alcohol and water.

SOURCE: My N64 has been having the same problem lately

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.

My controller won't turn on. There's something that sounds like it's rattling in it, but it's brand new, out of the package literally 5 minutes ago.


If you hear rattling, something has probably come off on the inside. Must be battery connections since everything worked except powering on. If you bought it from ebay, contact the seller right away and have it replaced. If you bought it locally you can easily get a replacement.

Dont open it or you risk not getting a replacement.

Well It might be the gamepack but the only way to test it out is to try it one a different N64 console to see if you have any luck if it works somewheres else than your N64 console has an internal problem of it 0 luck on something else than Its a fake gamepack because the old consoles will reject fake game packs then.

I say your N64 is obsolete at this point.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.
http://coolrom.com/ 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.
http://www.emulator-zone.com/doc.php/n64/ This is a list of N64 emulators that are readily available for you to download.
http://www.emulator-zone.com/ 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.

My console wont work and when it did it had an error sign. Something about needing a pak. What do I need and how do I get one?


your looking for the "expansion pack" its needed to play the games on the n64, it is located on top of the n64 towards he front of the console. that little door/flap between the power and reset button. get one online for cheap. like ebay or something. keep in mind there are 2 different kind of expansion packs on is black. it is the standard one. one is red on top, that one is better and will play all n64 games like donkey kong 64 and zelda ocarina of time

N64 wont turn on... i miss it


Had the same problems.. the n64 just turned off after playing dr. mario for a few minutes... anyways, heres what worked for me

1. make sure your wall outlet works *sounds dumb, but better safe then sorry, plug in a light or something to make sure it works*

2. unplug EVERYTHING, controllers, vid cord, power etc

3. let everything be disconnected for about a minute or so, the AC adapter sometimes overheats and turns it self off which might be the problem.

4. ONLY plug in the AC adapter to the n64, make sure its firmly plugged in. turn it on.. it should light up now, if so, plug everything back in. enjoy :)
