Question about Nintendo GameCube Console

1 Answer

No Video This unit was working fine for months. Then today, no video. We checked the RF adapter on a N64, and the picture was fine., which narrows the problem down to the Gamecube itself. The disc still spins, and engages and you can hear both channels of the audio fine, everything else works, just no picture.

Re: No Video

You're using an RF cable I assume.. perhaps buying a composite cable ( might solve the problem... I hope the AV output of the GameCube is still intact, as by nature, being an electronic, is able to short circuit by a bad movement seldom... if the Composite cable won't work, you might have to send the machine to Nintendo to fix it up for you...

Im trying to play my N64 (Nintendo 64) and the red light comes on but i can get a picture or sound from the TV. It is an older TV (it says "ADVENT" on the front). It is not a plasma or an LCD TV....

Well you need an N64 rf switch piece for it to work on a tv that does not have the rc jacks on it. I have the rf switch for N64 then thats what you need too.

We are trying to set up an old super nintendo we have rf adaptor hooked up and its set on right channel but its not showin on tv

probly the connection in the rf adapter is crapped out. there is a cord that is sold with the n64 and gamecube( not sure about the wii) that can connect to the super nintendo. kind of a rounded rectangle plug with a bump at the top that has rca cords ( 3: 1 for video and 2 for sterio sound). look at the back of the nintendo and ull see what im talking about. there should only be 2 outputs. the rf and the other rectangle with a dump one.

the other cord was never sold with the super nintendo just the rf was sold with it.

so if u have a N64 or gamecube you can use their tv input cords

My n64 wont work

Well I am currently having a similar problem with my aqua N64 console and my black N64 console. So it could be the ac adapter that could be the issue because Im having the same problem sort of with my SNES console so I brought a new ac adapter for my SNES and it works. It could be the same issue with my N64 consoles every thing looks fine on the inside so it has to be the ac adapter then. Or it might of had died on you. Video games consoles are funny at this they are fine the day before and they are not working the next day.

Fuzzy picture on TV and NES when new RF adapter is cconnected

i had the same problem, and it was the rf unit itself. to resolve this problem i went to radio shack and purchased a special connecter. one side is an rca (male) to rf (female). when attached to a standard peice of cable wire, it acts as an rf unit. Also works with the sega genesis. hope that helped

No color

Well it might be an issue with the av cables or the rf switch or the tv its self. One time I plugged my SNES console into the rya jacks for video 2 and the screen was in black grey and white but I tried it on video 1 with my av cable and channel 3 for my rf switch and it was fine. It could be the problem that i had.
