Question about Nintendo 64 Console
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.
The N64 was originally made for the old analog CRT TV, if you are connecting it to a newer type digital TV this could be why you experience lagging as I have those games and do not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.

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.

I have trouble with my old N64 cartridges also, some work and some don't. Typically, I would suspect the cartidges as being the problem, but in your case, it's possible there is an issue with the game unit itself since none of your games fully works. Sometimes wiggling the cartridge and hitting the reset button can help get games running, if the cartridge connectors are a bit corroded.
