    I purchased an expansion pak from ebay, but have no idea where in the console it is supposed to go. I was going to rip of the pink sticker that says "do not remove" pull out the little cartridge which is in there and then try pushing it in. Reading other comments on this board, this doesn't seem the way to go. Can someone please give me some specific instructions on how to insert the expansion pak then I don't wreck my console. My son would greatly appreciate it as we have purchased two games which will only work with an expansion pack.

    Oh man, I have the exact same problem. I also bought my expansion pak off of ebay and now my n64 doesn't work. Even when I put the jumper pak back in. I did everything I was supposed to. I had everything turned off when I replaced it and I've been searching the internet for hours trying to find solutions.

Barb3: The Jumper Pack (JP) is a bypass for the expansion cartridge. You were supposed to turn off the equipment remove the JP and then use the expansion cartridge. Your N64 Ram it's probably gone for good. Is either replace the RAM, which is hard to find or replace the N64. Sorry for that.... SithPitt

Well, it said "do not remove" and sadly you removed it. The "JP" was made for the N64 Disc Drive, which never came out in America (seeing as it flopped in Japan). The N64 when it goes on, has to check if everything is there. Either the N64DD or the Jumper Pak must be or the N64 is pffft. Sorry, but you haveta get a new N64. I've never heard of this "expansion cart" but is sounds like it was a save game pak. Those go on the bottom of the controller.

Dids you unplugged the N64? If you didn't, you damaged the system and there's nothing you can do about it. You supposed to turn off and unplug it before you do anything. You can gave me the expansion pak, since you can't use the N64 anymore if thats alright with you. I need it to play "Perfect Dark."

My n64 powers on but no picture


Nintendo 64 - Blank Screen Troubleshooting
Quick Tip: If your system is connected using AV cables and you cannot see the game on your screen, it is likely all you need to find is the input select on your TV or VCR. Link here for help.
  1. Make sure your system is hooked up correctly. This is the number one reason for a blank screen. To ensure all hookup connections are firm and correct, remove the AV cables and reinsert them with a slight twisting motion (this will help fully seat the connections). For more information about connecting the system, check the following hookup steps:
  2. Make sure you are using all licensed accessories with your system. Unlicensed products are not fully compatible with Nintendo systems and may not work correctly.
  3. Make sure the system has power. If you don't see the red power light when you turn your system on, go to the No Power Lightinstructions.
  4. Slide the Power Switch on the Control Deck to the OFF position. Remove the Game Pak and re-load it, pressing firmly to ensure it is locked in place. Slide the Power Switch on the Control Deck to the ON position. (Inserting the game with the Power ON will result in a blank screen.)
  5. Check under the Memory Expansion door (on the top of the Control Deck) to verify that the Jumper Pak or Expansion Pak is still inserted. If one is not inserted, slide the Power Switch to the OFF position, insert the Jumper Pak or Expansion Pak and slide the Power Switch to the ON position. Simply pressing reset will not solve the problem. You must turn the power off and then back on.
If the above steps do not resolve the problem you are experiencing, there may be a problem in one of your hookup cables and not your system. Try purchasing a new connection cable (how to buy replacement parts). You can also try borrowing the cable from a friend to see if it solves your problem before purchasing a new item.
If this does not resolve the problem you are experiencing with your system, your system may need to be replaced. For more information on what options are available, please click here.

What does an expansion pack for the n64 do? what is its purpose? and are they interchangeable?


I will refer you to a page on Wikipedia that explains it -- but the simple explanation is that the Nintendo 64 Expansion Pack increases the RAM on the N64 from 4MB to 8MB. There were a few games with improved graphics and game play that REQUIRED the expansion pack.

Yes you can remove the Expansion Pak from one N64 and put it into another. However, your N64 will NOT work without either the Expansion Pak or the Jumper Pak in that slot. The original memory card that came in there was called the Jumper Pak which was 4MB. The Expansion Pak was 8MB.

If your Nintendo 64 console operates without error when the jumper pak is installed, but fails to function when the expansion pak is installed, by process of elimination this most likely means that the expansion pak you purchased is defective.

However, prior to purchasing another expansion pak (or attempting to exchange/get refunded for it), make sure the contact points on both the pak and the console slot are free of any dust, dirt, or other contaminants. Use a lint-free, dry cloth to do this. Water and/or cleaning products can further damage the system.

If, after cleaning the contacts, it still fails to function, seek an exchange or refund.

How do i take the jump pak out of the nintendo 64


First, make sure the console is unplugged (power wise). Pop open the memory expansion slot on the top of the console. If you have the jumper pack ejector tool, use it to pry the jumper pak up to a point where you can lift it out with your fingers. If you don't have this tool a flathead screw driver will work fine too. Make sure you place it or a memory expansion pak back in before you power it back up. The console won't run without one of those in there.
