N64 turns on but nothing shows up on the TV

I have read everyone's problems and it seems the solutions are dancing around my problem but never directly addressing it. I turn my N64 on, the red light goes on and everything, I plug my AV chords in correctly, my TV is on the right output channel, and nothing shows up. It's as if the game system is not even on. Absolutely nothing happens to the TV. I have cleaned my games with no result. I took the N64 to a local game shop and it worked there just fine with his games. I am so confused as to why nothing is being transmitted from the N64 to the TV when it is turned on. My TV is a Samsung about 3 years old... I don't know. I don't get it. Does anyone have a solution?

    I have an RCA tv and my other concols play fine on it but when I plug in mt 64 it just dosent seem to work or show up on the screen. I also went to a game store and on their Commidore Tv it worked fine. I cleaned the ends or the av cable aswell and tried tuning my tv channels which I can't do.

I have the same problem and from what I've read elsewhere on the net, it seems to be easily amendable by one of two solutions.

- You can re-tune a channel on your TV (not one of the main ones) and it will find the frequency for your N64 to run on

- If you had a gamecube the yellow, red and white output cables that came with that are (apparently) compatible with both the N64 and SNES and that way you wont have to tune your TV.

Unfortunately for me, I did not have a GC and my TV will not re-tune due to the button on the controller not working! Good luck.

I have a Samsung flat screen tv and cannot set up a n64


Upon looking up your tv I realize it has no composite (yellow, red, white) input. Without that you can not hook up your N64. There are other options though. You could buy an RF adapter for the N64 (Gamecube, Super Nintendo, and N64 cables are the same) but by doing so you will lower the picture quality a bit. Or you can buy a component to composite converter (like this but if you shop around you could probably find a better one for cheaper http://www.amazon.com/Component-Composite-w-Down-Scaling/dp/B003FJKHBU ) Lastly if you have a DVD player or VCR that has component cables you could hook that up to your tv and then hook the N64 into it. Good luck!

My n64 doesn't work on ch3


Well it might be that if your tv runs on digital cable like mine then the rf switxch part wont work then so I tried mine on the tvs in the basemant at my Aunt Gails house and the rf switch for N64 works there so you could use the av cables then instead of the rf switch.

My n64 turns on and is hooked up to the tv and it doesn't show any picture or has any sound coming out of it


make sure your connection on the back of the N64 is all the way in the N64. Also check the connections on the back of the TV to make sure you have them plugged into an "input".

N64 will not play on new TV and Stereo Reciever


maybe it's just the T.V I mean the N64 is like 10+ years old and you're trying to get it to work in a new T.V! I reckon that your best bet is to buy an older T.V to play it with or get an emulator e.g PJ64 on your computer and then you can still play your games

Fuji FinePix S3100 will not turn on.


Sorry, no real solution. My friends have one that would not turn on and they left it without batteries for a month, then put the batteries in and it worked. Mine has failed and will not turn on. I have left the batteries out but nothing has miraculously fixed itself yet. May have to send it in to Fuji.

Nintendo 64 expansion pak


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
