N64 logo not being displayed when turned on.

I have just bought an N64 off of ebay and everything works fine but, when i was younger and i had one, when you pluged a game in and turned it on I seem to remember it used to display the 3D "N" logo. This N64 does not display the logo. I was just wondering if maybe this will lead to a problem later on or if the console has been modded in some way?

I don't think it was on all games, but it's quite possible that it was modified. As long as your games work and you have no problems with start up and shut down, there shouldn't be a problem. They may have taken it apart to try and clone it and with reboot it may have lost some of the licensed images.
Let me know if this helps.

I bought a new AV cable for my nintendo 64 off ebay and when i plugged it in the brightness of my games were really bright


Well it could be because HDTV was not made the time N64 cameout so you would have to use a blue plug for it to work instead of the traditional av cables.

Precautions Concerning TV Screen Damage (Image Retention)
Some televisions can be damaged when a stationary image is maintained on the screen for long periods of time, as this could potentially "burn" the stationary image into the screen. This image retention can result from a variety of sources, including test patterns, VCR on-screen programming screens, or picture-in-picture boxes. Playing video games with stationary images or patterns, or leaving video games on hold or pause, may also lead to this type of damage.

Before using your Nintendo system with any TV, especially front and rear projection type TVs, be sure to review all documentation included with your TV to find out whether video games can be played on the TV without damaging it.
When taking a short break, place the game on pause and turn the TV off until you are ready to play again.
If you are not sure about your TV, contact the manufacturer of the TV for more information.
Neither Nintendo nor any of Nintendo's licensees will be liable for any damage to your TV.

Projection TVs (front and rear):
Due to their design, front and rear projection TVs can be more susceptible to image retention. Remember to be sure to review all documentation included with your TV to find out whether video games can be played on your TV without damaging it.

High-Definition TV's (HDTV):
Projection style HDTVs display the image in much the same manner as other type projection TVs and as such, the same possibility of image retention exists. HDTV's that use a tube screen should be no more susceptible to image retention than standard TVs that use a tube screen. For either type of HDTV, follow the precautions on this page.

Plasma TVs or LCD Screens:
We have no information on Plasma TVs or LCD type TVs. Since image retention is a variable of the TV, please check your TV manual or contact the manufacturer directly before connecting any video game system to your television.

I bought a N64. I have everything plugged in, but the N64 only has a red light, and the TV says no signal on every output.


I had an issue like this with my 14 year old N64 console so I tried a new expansion
pack in it and it worked again after that then. It could just be that.

Iv had an n64 before so i think i have a good idea of how to set it up. i've managed to tune my tv in to find where abouts it is but there's only a black screen.i can turn the n64 off an the tv screen goes...


Adjust the vertical or horizontal hold controls. This is helpful even if regular TV stations come in fine. If your TV has an automatic fine tuning control (called AFC or AFT), turn it OFF. Use the manual fine tuning dial to adjust the picture. If turning OFF the AFC/AFT causes your TV to display in black and white, then leave the AFC/AFT ON. Slide the Power Switch on the Control Deck to the ON position. While the control deck remains ON, turn the TV off for 10 second then back on again. This resets your AFC/AFT so that it will tune in the signal from the control deck.

Move your control deck farther away from your TV. If the control deck is too close to the TV, the control deck may cause some interference.

I just bought a N64 and the game Donkey Kong 64 from ebay. I played it for about half an hour and the whole thing just froze. Is it the game or the system. I need to know so I can get my money back or if...


Well it might be the expansionpack then because its telling you that the expansion pack going to die on you soon. I had a freezing problem with my aqua N64 console so I put the catriages in halfway and it works amnd try cleaning the console out too. My black one works fine with the expanson pack so its not the expansonpack then.

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.

Is my n64 broken?


You might have a dead N64 bro. Alot of quality games on that system too.

You can usually find them on Ebay for fairly cheap

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.

N64 wont turn on... i miss it


Had the same problems.. the n64 just turned off after playing dr. mario for a few minutes... anyways, heres what worked for me

1. make sure your wall outlet works *sounds dumb, but better safe then sorry, plug in a light or something to make sure it works*

2. unplug EVERYTHING, controllers, vid cord, power etc

3. let everything be disconnected for about a minute or so, the AC adapter sometimes overheats and turns it self off which might be the problem.

4. ONLY plug in the AC adapter to the n64, make sure its firmly plugged in. turn it on.. it should light up now, if so, plug everything back in. enjoy :)
