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Your console is outdated.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.

SOURCE: nintendo 64 quit after using a gameshark

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.

What is it about?

The N64 is the third home-console published by Nintendo and is the successor of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES). It was competing with the Playstation 2 and the Dreamcast.
The name Nintendo 64 comes from the fact that it was one of the first 64-Bit consoles. The "64" can also be found in various game titles like "Super Mario 64" oder "Donkey Kong 64".
The console was released in 1996 and the last game was released in 2002.
Which made this console popular was mostly the nintendo only milestones. The Zelda game (Ocarina of time) is among fans, still the best Zelda game ever released. It was also the debut of the first 3D Mario and Donkey Kong games.

Cant get nintendo 64 hooked up to flat screen

Wow, the classic Nintendo 64. That was my first gaming system. I do know that the 64 has default RCA cords (Red, Yellow, White). They are required to be inputed into your TV. Make sure the 64 is plugged into a power source and that it turns on. Make sure that your game actually works. Clean out your 64 by using a can of compressed air, do the same to your game.

Finally try to start it up.

If I helped in any way please rate me and help me out.

Nintendo 64 will not turn on

64's as they get older and with most gaming consoles the connections get worn.The power supply is junk on those! It's a cube that has to fit just right into the slot to make a solid connection.Here's a possible solution.

1.Turn off your 64 and pull out the power supply cube blow on it and in the space where it was.

2.Take the game out blow on it.

3. When you put the game in push it down a little harder than normal "not very hard dont break it" but securing the connection this way.Do the same with the power supply.

Can we play gamecubegames inside the wii console, if so how?

You can do both. With internet you can download Nintendo 64 games on the wii shop channel. For game cube games enter the controller in slot one, enter the game and it's like you don't have a wii!

Note: due to the fact the the wii remote does not have enough buttons ALL N-64 games need a gamecube controller or a classical controller. Game Cube games are not compatible with classical controllers.
