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.

Why is there a scrambled screen with audio?


Hi April, Using the HDMI or the provided RCA jacks (red, white, yellow) any time you switch between the two you will need to perform a video reset on the system. It's the same process for all models. I am putting in a link that tells you exactly how to do it. ^^ Good luck, and I hope this helps.

N64 colors do not work when hooked up to Vizio TV.


You probably have the RCAs in the component video hookups. Its easy to confuse them as they are similar ports. They are usually red, blue, and green. Look for the yellow, white, and red hookups. Those are for RCA connections as they don't work in the component hookups for HD video. i.e. blue-ray, PS3 That will cause the video to look grey and grainy.

I dont know how to set it up


- First you need a rather old TV, like maybe before 2002, if you have one. Because on newer TVs N64 graphics are terrible !

- Once you have your TV, check to see if you have two cables with your 64 (if you don't something is missing !). One shaped like a little box on one end and an electrical plug on the other : you hook up the little box to your N64 and plug the device in the nearest power socket. The other cable has a a strange black and rectangular input that hook up in your N64 and 3 sockets that are red, yellow and white. Connect the latter on your TV by finding the same sockets with the same colours !

- Connect your controller to the console (it's the round-ish sockets in front of it)

- insert your game

- THEN turn on your console. Don't turn it on unless everything hooked up !

(if it doesn't work you may want to try the famous turn-off-the-console-blow-into-the-cartridge-put-it-back-and-try-turning-your-N64-again trick !)

Good luck ! :)

My ps3 system will turn on, get the green light, but don't get any sound or picture. it's not my av cord, cuz i am using my ps2 on it now. my ps3 was working just fine and then my screen just scrambled and...


Interesting problem. I recommend trying a reset of the video card. It's pretty easy, Sony has the instructions here.

Except for the scrambling and freezing, it sounds like an issue I had recently with my own system. Give this a try and please leave a comment on weather it worked or not.

Nintendo 64.black and white picture


In order to play a different region game on a different region TV (example playing a PAL game on a NTSC tv) your tv needs to be automatic enabled. Some tv's have an option on the remote to change the input signal to PAL NTSC or SECAM. If your tv does not have that then there is literally nothing you can do apart from get a different tv with this feature.

Video is black and white


Are you using the same SCART socket that you use for your other consoles or a different one? My SCART3 input on my Panasonic telly has two different modes - one which displays in colour, and one which displays in a sort of grainy black n' white. There is a purpose to it but I can't remember what it is. :-)

Anyway, you switch between the two by pushing the AV button and then hitting the colour button which corresponds to SCART3 a few times 'til you reach the correct setting.

It probably isn't that, but... y'know. Sanity check.

Tune your tele and check you've got it on the right PAL/NTSC setting.

Scrambled screen


Sounds like your touch screen is broken. Two choices. One: If it still has a warranty, then send it in to Nintendo for repair. Two: Search on sites like Ebay for replacement touch screens, and buy one. Then replace the faulty touch screen with the brand new touch screen.
