My Nintendo 64 is lagging!

Hi, i have a Nintendo 64 from August, i bought it from a seller on ebay, and i noticed that when i'm crossing specific places in a level, there is a little or a big lag, while in another places it doesn't lag. I have 3 games: Banjo-Kazooie, Donkey Kong 64 and Banjo-Tooie, and i have this problem in all 3 games... I never played a N64 before so i don't know if this is normal >_< Can you resolve my problem? :) Sorry for my bad English but i'm Italian, thanks.

Definitely if you are playing one of those 3 games it is normal since those are three of the most graphic intensive games ever released for the console besides Goldeneye 007 and Perfect Dark. Just like if you remember the days of the original nintendo if you had more than 8 characters/sprites on screen at once the game would crawl until you killed one of the sprites! LOL But for those 3 games if you have a lot of graphics on screen with a lot of textures at certain points in a level it will definitely slow down the frame rate for sure. The only way to remedy this is to attach a heat sink fan to your Nintendo 64 processor similar to how you attach one to a computer but that would have to be a custom job or just play the games on Emulator on your PC. Cheers!

SOURCE: Super Nintendo games start but levels don't

try blowing inside the game cartridge and then the slot the game inserts into. I had this problem on my snes with some games and this helped. Other to that it may be the console is on its way out.

Ebay sell some really cheap snes consoles now. I picked one up for £15.00 with games.

Your Nintendo 64 is fine. Donkey Kong 64 requires the following expansion pak to work because of its enhanced graphics.

Do the symptoms of Jet lag vary depending on how many time zones Ive crossed?


Yes, people flying across few time zones may be able to adjust without noticeable effects of the time change. Those flying across many time zones will likely develop noticeable symptoms of jet lag.

My nintendo 64 is lagging!


The N64 was originally made for the old analog CRT TV, if you are connecting it to a newer type digital TV this could be why you experience lagging as I have those games and do not remember any lag in any of them not that I have played them in the last 2 years. The worst case scenario is that the seller was getting rid of it due to a bad Video chip inside the N64 without stating that there was a problem with it so they could sell it. This is why I never use eBay you just never know what you are getting. I am not sure if Nintendo still support this console but it maybe worth a try to contact them directly and see if they are able to help you figure out what it is.

Your English is very good I understood everything with no problems my friend.

Well it might be an internal issue with the console then. Like the console might be confussed that would occur if you do not use offical Nintendo stuff more problems occur with unlicsened products.

Hi,

eBay and PayPal charge fees to sellers. eBay charges the seller fees, usually it's 9% of the final sale price plus shipping. But the seller can get the final value fee back if he/she will file the cancel transaction case. You will just need to agree to it once it's filed by the seller. With regard to PayPal, they charge 2.5% of the total receiving amount. But the seller can contact PayPal for credit once there is a reversal of payment, a refund.

Since it's not your fault, the seller do not need to charge you anything. If you will have problems with the seller, you can report the seller and can leave negative Feedback (within 60 days since the date of purchase)

I hope this helps.

Just bought a used 64, i load a game in and the screen says connect a controller into port #1. I have a brand new controller and a used one so i dont think its a controller prob. What can I do?


Unfortunately you have bought a broken used N64. I don't believe there is anything you can do about it. I would suggest contacting the seller and asking if it's something that he had a problem with and just had to do something simple to avoid it. If there's anything you can do now, it is probably to buy a new n64, but that wouldn't be too bad because they are available and cheap on site like ebay or amazon.

NDSL top LCD screen ebay quality?


Votahuan,

There are different quality screens arround, but the described problem has nothing to do with the quality of the screen and it looks like the resolution of the screen is not ok. The problem appears sometimes if the flatcable is put in to the connector and bend to much due to pressig it in this connector. I've seen that problem here sometimes. The screen is send to the customer in good order but is become defective due to incorrect manuals, missing warnings and customers that don't know what they are doing.

Try to contact te seller and ask him to replace the screen. Hopefully he wil do that.
