Question about Nintendo 64 Console

1 Answer

Picture scrambling and no sound.

When i hook up the N64 the screen scrambles up and is mainly in black and white, sometimes it flickers with colour. There is also no sound. Sometimes the sound comes on but there is a buzzing aswell. I've done everything it has said to in the instruction book and tried all the trouble shooting things.

Inspect your cables your a/v cables make sure there is no breaks in the cable at all if using a rf adaptor please make sure you are on the right channel and the rf adaptor is also on the right channel.

you may need new cables and if that does not work then its something internal on the unit.

would think you need to replace the cable board etc. the signal is not getting in and out right. can also be a fault on the power board giving the wrong volts so would check this to. it will tell you on the board what volts is supposed to be. the 5v and 12v should be spot on other volts will vary a little. also check the capacitors for the caps to be bowed up and a brown/ yellow gunk around them and under the board this can be a sign they are failing.

Sylvania hdtv model lc320sl1 will turn on but does not get picture.... sound works.... various colored lines and or scrambled picture appears at best


Let me start at the beginning---Likely a bad main board in your case but nothing is sure in this type of set.

Main board controls all information to the front screen and communicates to various boards---There really is almost never a simple "that part is bad solution" as any board, the power supply, the main, etc can cause issues.

It can even be a issue with the front screen unit--called a display panel.

You might consider doing some research on the set by Google of the model number with "parts" to get an idea what is available and what potential parts cost might be.

If a main board is bad it will average from one to two hundred just for the part----if issue is the panel you are done--part if even available is more than set cost when new.

Let me know if you have questions.

Hitachi C21 model.The colours on screen have got scrambled.


It sounds like something has left a strong magnetic field on the face of the picture tube, and that's causing the colour distortion. The electron beams from the tube's colour guns are hitting the wrong spots on the face. There is a degaussing circuit in the TV that tries to neutralise such fields every time the set turns on. Sometimes electrical equipment (particularly motorised appliances like a vacuum sweeper) operating too close to the TV can leave a field too strong for the degaussing circuit to cope with. Or a failed part in the circuit may have made it inoperative.

A hand-held degaussing coil can be used to remove the field. You can purchase one online, or call a TV service technician. It used to be a standard tool to carry.

Another possibility is that the tube has been damaged. There is a very thin metal mesh screen called the shadow mask behind the face of the tube. If this mask has been warped by a strong magnetic field or a mechanical shock (if the set was dropped, for instance), you will see the same colour distortion. In this case, however, there is no repair other than tube replacement. And that is likely to cost more than a new set with parts and labour.

Check if it has a scrambled image on all sources ie - DVD- VCR - cable/satellite box. Since the PIP is normal it sounds like the signal source is bad.
