Question about Nintendo 64 Console
Cuts out part way through a game
Posted by Anonymous on
This is an old system, so there are several possible issues.
Some games require a memory expansion pack. You can usually find this on the Internet. It'll increase your RAM levels-essentially, a new RAM chip. To simplify a bit, that's short-term memory. If your game is skipping and losing audio before your console crashes, this is a likely problem.
Your game itself could be the issue. To clean its data contact points, put your mouth near it and suck air in. This removes dust from inside. Now, if it still doesn't work, get some nail polish remover and a Q-tip, and scrub at blackish-colored spots until they fade away a bit. (This solution works with GameBoy/DS as well.)
Your console is outdated. It was released in the 90's; it's possible that it's just falling because it's old, especially if children played a little rough with it. It's frustrating, especially since your warranty is definitely void and Nintendo can't replace your console, but sometimes these things happen.

did you try to clean the contacts of the console and the game?if not yet use a smooth sand paper,fold it.about one inch wide is enough,now insert the sandpaper on the cartridge slot and slowly rub the contacts from left to right.maybe 5 to 10 times is enough to clean the contacts.do the same thing for the game cartridge.and try.

It might be Karma. Wait, super nintendo cartridges, you mean from the SNES? that might be the problem. Or it could have died from old age. you might try to buy another n64 without all of the cables, and just replace the one you have.
