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?

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!
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. 12 STARS if this solution is helpful then
Do this, hook it up to another tv just to make sure that the N64 is workig properly. If it works on another tv then you know the system is fine. If it doesn't work on another tv then it could be that you have dirty games and you need to clean the contacts and then reinsert them into the system and get them to work.
Keep the system on a known good working tv until you can get your games to work and display properly. You can clean the games by using a damp q-tip and wiping the contacts on the bottom of the game back and forth a bunch of times, there will probably be all kinds of black that comes off.
keep on trying games untill you get one to work and display properly, then go ahead and move the tv to the one you want it to work on and test it out and it just might work then.
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
In order to play a different region game on a different region TV (example playing a PAL game on a NTSC tv) your tv needs to be automatic enabled. Some tv's have an option on the remote to change the input signal to PAL NTSC or SECAM. If your tv does not have that then there is literally nothing you can do apart from get a different tv with this feature.
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....
