If you are using the original AV plug for the N64, it will probably not work on a new TV. You must find a new AV plug in a store, or on eBay, Amazon, etc. This plug must have the red, white, and yellow ends to it. those are the color coded ends that go into the TV.

I used to have a Phillips CRT TV from 1986 and it did not have the 3 colours red yellow and white on it to plug in the RCA jacks for my Nintendo 64 console. It was plugged into a vcr for it to work. Or you can buy the Rd switch piece for your console http://www.lukiegames.com/N64-Gamecube-RF-Modulator-Nintendo it is an old TV that did not have those parts to it yet 1994 and older will not have them then.
You need to have a regular RCA input for the N64 A/V cable. Neither component or HDMI will work with the N64's RCAs. Almost all TVs still have RCA inputs on them. Look on you television for a set of three inputs (yellow, red, white). If your TV does not have these inputs, you cannot use an N64 with it.
you will have to select the video channel source for the TV, usually like av1 or av2 or something like Video 1 Video 2, channel 3 only works with RF switches it wont work with RCA jacks. there should be a video source button on the remote, if you lost your remote then try pressing channel down it usually comes before channel 2, if it dont show up then you will have to press the video or source button in the remote.
Its not actually possible to connect it to your tv if it doesnt have a rca or a scart socket. if you have the old cables for a nintendo 64 they might work on it but otherwise you will need a new tv or medium to connect it through. If you did manage to connect it then you wouldnt need to play it on AV as because it was going through the aerial it would just appear on one of the channels.
