Re: red blinking light

Try blowing the dust out of both the system and the games. Purchase one of those air duster cans from a computer store. Open up the door to the system where the games go in and go to town blowing all the dust out. Then do the same to the cartridges.

Why does the red light on my nintendo 64 come on for a fraction of a second and then not work

Well if the red light is flickering then it might be a bad ac adapter so you could buy a new ac adapter to see if it works then. Or bad capacitor inside of the console oe or the other. It might be time to buy a new N64 console.

Battery? console has no charge when plugged into wall outlet I push power button blue LED comes on briefly , then red flashes 3 times, and the yellow LED lights up along with the health warning on the...

What color is the power light when the system shuts off?
    Red: If the power light is red, or flashing red, when the system turns off, then the system's battery needs to be charged.

    Blue: If the power light is blue when the system turns off, then there appears to be a problem with the system and it will need to be repaired.

    If the orange recharge indicator light blinks while the system is plugged in and charging, then it is likely that the battery is not installed properly.

    If you have ensured that the battery is installed properly but the orange light still blinks, check to make sure that the battery is a licensed by Nintendo. The only licensed Nintendo DSi battery will have the model number "TWL-003" (Nintendo DSi) or "UTL-003" (Nintendo DSi XL) and will display Nintendo's logo.

My nintendo nes co nsole is all hooked up right but power light keeps blinking

Well it sounds like the fuse is broken and needs to be replaced then 1.5 amp ico fuse for the Super Nintendo console I think that kijijiji and eBay sell these fuse types for SNES consoles the fuse will have to be soldered on and solder the old one off first too. If you don't fell comfortable with fixing it find a place that fixes old consoles or find some one that can fix it for you or just buy a new console

I just purchased a super nintendo and i cant get it to work. the red light comes on the console but i cant get anything to show up on the tv .

Check to see what power supply your using to connect it with. If using a rf swithch make sure its on channel 3 or 4 then. If you are using the av cables switch them to a different out lit then.

When i turn on the power for my super nintendo the light and the screen keep blinking

You game is most likely just dirty which doesn't allow it to connect to the console completely. Clean the gold strip on the bottom of the game with a q-tip dipped in rubbing alcohol. Make sure it is dry before you try it in the system again.
