Important Note:
We highly recommend you review the following precautions before you set up and operate your Nintendo system:
Important Safety Warnings & Precautions
Hardware Precautions / Maintenance
Game Pak Precautions / Maintenance
Precautions Concerning TV Screen Damage (Image Retention)
Installation Steps:

Locate the Audio/Video inputs on the back of the TV.
Place the yellow end of the Stereo A/V cable into the Video "in" on the back of the TV. Connect the red end of the cable to Audio "in" Right. Connect the white end of the cable to the Audio "in" Left. Use a slight twisting motion when inserting the each cable and ensure the cables are firmly pressed into the input.
Note: If you have a mono television with only one Audio input, click here for a diagram of how the hook-up will look. The Y-adapter pictured is optional; you can also simply leave the white cable disconnected instead.

Connect the rectangular (gray) plug of the Stereo A/V cable into the "multi-out" connector on the back of the Control Deck.
After system is connected to the TV:

Insert Game Pak fully into the Control Deck.
Plug the Controller(s) into the front of the system using the left most port for Player 1.
Plug the AC Adapter into the back of the system . Plug the other end into a wall outlet.
Slide the Power Switch on (toward Game Pak).
Turn on the TV and locate the input select. It's often called: input select, AUX (auxiliary), Line, Line In, Input, Source, Select, In, or EXT external). Switch the input select to show the Nintendo game.
The game image should now be displayed on the screen. You're ready to play!
If after following these directions completely you are not able to view the game, try our Troubleshooting Tips.

Goldeneye deleted all it's memory randomly


Hello, n64 cartridges are outdated for that reason exactly. They have a small space to save game info. A quick off and back on is actually the way you reset the memory. Say you bought someone else's n64 and each game you loaded had saved info on it. Powering off and then turning it back on, would erase that data and allow you to start your own game. Once your 64 went instantly off, it reset/erased the saved info. Unfortunately there is nothing I know of to get it back. Sorry. Hope this helps though.

If I order a nintendo 64 console only...what other cables etc. will I need to buy?


You'll need a N64 RCA cable (Game Stop), and an N64 Power supply, your best bet on the power supply will probly be eBay. And of course you'll need a controller.

N64 power light comes on, but nothing comes on the screen.


It appears that your power supply is fine (you still get a power light) however your internal game board has a problem. I realize you said that you have eliminated all the other components (very smart process of elimination) so the only thing that has not been swapped is the console itself. I think you've already come to the conclusion that the N64 needs to be repaired, and you just need to hear it from someone else. Unfortunately, the console needs to be repaired. Again, you did a great job isolating the problem, so you've done all the hard work.

N64 Blinking on and off


It seems like an issue with the cartridge slot (as in there's a bad connection somewhere, causing the connection with the cart to be lost, then restored, then lost... etc). Try giving it a good blast with a can of compressed air or possibly go over it with a Q-tip soaked in glass cleaner or 50% isopropyl alcohol.

It may also be an issue with the power cable. I have a similar problem with my Genesis resetting and turning off. It turned out to be caused by a faulty, loose, power cable. Try finding another power cable for your N64 and see if it makes adifference.
