It's likely that it has suffered from minor corrosion of its contacts. You can try the instructions from the following video to attempt to repair your console.

Otherwise, there may be other issues that need attending to. For example, the game cartridge's contacts may need cleaning. I would advise on cleaning the contacts with isopropyl alcohol (at least 70%, but 99% recommended). This should help to restore the console to a usable state. Good luck!

SOURCE: N64 Blinking on and off

It seems like an issue with the cartridge slot (as in there's a bad connection somewhere, causing the connection with the cart to be lost, then restored, then lost... etc). Try giving it a good blast with a can of compressed air or possibly go over it with a Q-tip soaked in glass cleaner or 50% isopropyl alcohol.

It may also be an issue with the power cable. I have a similar problem with my Genesis resetting and turning off. It turned out to be caused by a faulty, loose, power cable. Try finding another power cable for your N64 and see if it makes adifference.

My n64 will not turn on... the red light won;t show up the tv is blank, all the cords are plugged in HELP!!!!


Well you could buy and try a new N64 ac adapter to see if it makes a difference then.
For my problem with no red light showing up on at all I talk out the old motherboard and install a new one then.

Zune 120 GB My Zune hasn't been used I bought it in 2008, still have the receipt and everything. So when I decided to put it in use... It won't turn on. the logo will come on the screen and it...


Unfortunately, batteries have a shelf life. If the player sat for three years without being charged, the battery is probably bad. The chemical reactions inside the battery continue, even when it's not charged.

My advice is to replace the battery if possible.

Good luck!

N64 turns on but nothing shows up on the TV


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.
