N64 works but the Picture has loads of static

I plug the N64 into the wall, that's fine, I then plug the thin cable into the back of the tv and turn it on and the picture has loads of static, its barely playable. Do I need another lead connecting to an aerial or something please respond ASAP.

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.)

Hi I can't figure out how to get my N64 to work on my samsung flatscreen. My friend showed how to do it a while back but now i've forgotten. I've been told I need a scart cable but I...


Whoever told you you need a scart cable is wrong, The N64 is an old console therefore requires you to plug it in via a standard ariel port. You then should turn you N64 on and search for new channels using your TV menus to either automatically search for them or you can tune your tv manually. either way you will probably need to fine tune afterwards.

How do you connect your nintendo 64 to your tv


You need two cables. One has a very large, thick end that fits into the back of the N64. That is the power cord, you just plug that one into the wall. The other cord is a little trickier. It has a smaller end that plugs into the back of the N64 to the side of the power plug. On the other end of that cord, you have composite cables. (The red, white, and yellow plugs). Just find the matching color plugs on the back of your TV, set it to the correct input, and you're all set! I hope this helps!

Iv had an n64 before so i think i have a good idea of how to set it up. i've managed to tune my tv in to find where abouts it is but there's only a black screen.i can turn the n64 off an the tv screen goes...


Adjust the vertical or horizontal hold controls. This is helpful even if regular TV stations come in fine. If your TV has an automatic fine tuning control (called AFC or AFT), turn it OFF. Use the manual fine tuning dial to adjust the picture. If turning OFF the AFC/AFT causes your TV to display in black and white, then leave the AFC/AFT ON. Slide the Power Switch on the Control Deck to the ON position. While the control deck remains ON, turn the TV off for 10 second then back on again. This resets your AFC/AFT so that it will tune in the signal from the control deck.

Move your control deck farther away from your TV. If the control deck is too close to the TV, the control deck may cause some interference.

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".

Vizio makes loud static noise, picture goes fuzzy.


You should check your home wiring and grounding. Also be aware of anything that has recently been turned on when this happens. Anyone using a microvwave, cell phone, or other appliance that might be causing the interference.
