Question about Nintendo 64 Console

N64 isn't working with Vizio HDTV...

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...

    Thanks, I'll try that. I feel, however, that if it were simply a dirty game then the screen should at least go black or something, or at least recognize that there is something hooked up to it, not just stay blue, you know?? I've had it go black but not come on on another TV but this one doesn't do anything at all....

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.

Vizio M550SV no sound. Is there an audio card or does the main board have to be replaced?


See page 8 here:
http://cdn.vizio.com/documents/downloads/hdtv/M550SV/991UG_M420-470-550SV.pdf


From the top
- HDMI - both Audio and Video come from device via one cable.
- RF Coaxial (aka CATV) - both Audio and Video come from device via one cable.
- 15 Pin Dsub (they are calling it RGB), Video comes from this cable and Audio is from a dual 1/4" plug (looks like a headphone wire at both ends).
- Component (this is true RGB) uses RCA type cables - two sets of cables, cable one has 3 RCA at each end and they are color coded, as follows Red/Green/Blue, cable two has two RCA color coded as follows White/Red. Cable one is Video, and cable two is audio, total of 5 connections at source and 5 connections at tv.
- Composite AV - one cable set, coded as follows - Red/White/Yellow, Red/White are audio and Yellow is video.
Hope this helps.

How do you connect a cable connector back on to the tv


If it is a cable, with just one pin, connect it to the Single isolated pin behind the TV, where it will fit in correctly. If you have three RC jacks, yellow-red-white, connect these respectively on IN marked positions on the TV. But connect the yellow pin to yellow RC socket only. Never connect it to other sockets, because this video. You can connect the Red and white to left and right channel of audio.

I just got a nintendo 64, and I can't figure out how to get it work on my flat screen. It's a sony, and its an hdtv. The nintendo came with the three wire cable (Red, White, Yellow) and I've tried plugging...


You need to have a regular RCA input for the N64 A/V cable. Neither component or HDMI will work with the N64's RCAs. Almost all TVs still have RCA inputs on them. Look on you television for a set of three inputs (yellow, red, white). If your TV does not have these inputs, you cannot use an N64 with it.

I just purchased a vizio 37 in tv. I wanted to know about the best hook up for the tv to the direct tv box.


If your Direct TV box is HDTV compatible then the best connection would be HDMI, and Componant Cables (Red, Green, Blue, w/Red, White) would be the second choice.

If your Direct TV box is not HDTV compatible only SD compatible, the best connection would be S-Video (S-Video cable with audio cables), Composite Video (Yellow, w/Red, White), or Coax cable.

All of the above cables can be purchased at your local Radio Shack, Best Buy, Walmart etc..

Nintendo 64 to jvc hdtv


Check all of your plugs, make sure they are clean. Make sure the game that you have inside the system is clean and free of dust as well as the game connector port on the system. Make sure you are on your A/V channel. If all else fails, you ma have to gt a new A/V plug. When I got my Nintendo 64, I tried to plug it in to my TV using the plug that came with it, but it did not work. I soon found that the Playstation 2 A/V cable that I have also has two additional cables to it, and one of them works in the N64 system. So, I tried to play the system with that cable plugged in, and it worked, so I would suggest buying a new A/V cable that works in the N64 system.

Hope this helps!!!!!

N64 has static and audio noise


If its got what looks like a cable jack plug, its an RF Cable. As is, if those get kinked up badly enough, the copper inside of them can become damages, which can affect the way it sends the signal to the tv from the N64. Those cables can be picked up from local game stores. my suggestion though, is if you have the connectors, go with the Red,Yellow,White setup, Red and White are the sound cables, and the Yellow is your video. Better sound from it.

Nintendo 64 HDTV


I am not an HDTV expert but I believe they are all backwards compatible so the fact it is HD should not be a problem. Have you tried a vcr or dvd player on the same hook ups? It is possible you are trying to use a video input that is already in use? I know on my TV I have the DVD hooked up with an S-video cable to "Video 2". Right next to the S-video hookup are the red, yellow, white RCA jacks. On my TV these can't be used when the S-video is in use so I have to have the games hooked up to the front panel "Video 3". I would disconnect everything and try hooking the N64 up in each input to see if you can find one that works.
