Question about Nintendo 64 Console
My N64 doesn't have the red, yellow, and white cables... Instead i have a MadCatz triple RC connector. This cable has adapters for Sega, Playstation, and Nintendo... It's supposed to connect directly to the back of a TV. I hooked up the N64 to a Vizio HDTV on the back of the set, made sure the RC cable was set to channel 3, and turned the TV to the TV setting on channel 3. When i turned on the system the TV screen stayed blue... it's usually blue when nothings hooked up to it and it stayed blue. As in, nothing at all happened. I don't know what to do...
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.
