I'm hooking up a Nintendo 64 to a AOC LCD L32W861 television. I am trying to use an RF cable to connect the two systems. For whatever reason, the tv responds to the connection, but simply displays "No...

If you have it connected properly,it probably has to do with tv station select.Do you know how when you do a channel autosearch and it picks up cable anddigital channels?Well if you go into that menu,on my tv it shows 4 different possibilities.The first set is labeled DTV,second TV,third Cable DTV,fourth Cable.You may have to switch to the plain TV option and use channel 3 or 4 in that mode,because everything else is looking for a digital input,and N64 is not digital.I used to repair Nintendos for a full time job too.If that doesn't work,I am providing a link to N64 FAQ's and it may need repair,probably the RF cable or the RF transmitter within the console.I am thinking the TV solution will work though.
Good luck and game on! Greg
If you have more questions,maybe about how to set up the TV,just comment here and I will get an auto email with a link.

N64 isn't working with Vizio HDTV...

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.

My nintendo 64 channel is not 3/4 ----what is it then?

Are you using the a/v cable from the N64 to the tv? The red and yellow cables?

If so then you need to change your TV to one of the video channels like video 1, video 2, video 3, it would depend on what input you have your N64 hooked up to. if your using an rf connector then make sure you are using channel 3 and you might have to make sure on the rf connector that its also set to 3.

Snes screen jumps, only on certain tv

Try the other channel.
If both are set to channel 4, change both to channel 3.
If both are set to channel 3, change both to channel 4.

Snes screen jumps on certain tv

Okay, what I would try is hooking up the snes using the n64 cable. right next to the rf slot in the back of the super nintendo is a slot thats the same video output as the n64 you can plug in the rca cables from it and see if they work

N64 connections

make sure your tv is tuned to either channel 3 or 4 check the rf adaptor with the coaxal cable going into your "antenna" jack and make sure that its connected tightly as well make sure there is no bends or breaks in the cable as well.

you may also want to find some gamecube A/V cables since they will also work to replace that RF adaptor and right now ushally they are on sale in department stores and places like GameStop and EB Games.

N64 has static and audio noise

If its got what looks like a cable jack plug, its an RF Cable. As is, if those get kinked up badly enough, the copper inside of them can become damages, which can affect the way it sends the signal to the tv from the N64. Those cables can be picked up from local game stores. my suggestion though, is if you have the connectors, go with the Red,Yellow,White setup, Red and White are the sound cables, and the Yellow is your video. Better sound from it.

Can't find the channel for my N64

Is your cable RCA, S-Video, or Coaxial? If it's coaxial, check and see if the channel is to 3 or 4. If it's RCA or S-Video, check which slot it's plugged into on your TV. Most likely, the cable's dead, as I've had to replace mine a good 4 times.

N64 works but the Picture has loads of static

It sounds like it's most likely a problem with the AV cord you're using to connect to the TV or the ports on the TV where you plug it in. If you can, borrow a friend's AV cable and see if it works, if not then it's either a technical problem elsewhere or it is not hooked up correctly... Also make sure the TV is set to the correct input (Video 1, Video 2, channel 3, etc.)
