Quick Tip! If your system is connected using AV cables and you cannot see the game on your screen, it is likely all you need to find is the input select on your TV or VCR. Link here for help. The Stereo Audio/Video Cable that is included with the Nintendo 64 will allow you to connect the Control Deck to most televisions or video cassette recorders (VCR). First, look at the back of your television AND your VCR and see if you have Audio/Video inputs . Though your TV may not have them, almost all VCRs do.
If you DO have AV inputs, choose where you want to connect to:
Audio/Video Cable to a TV Audio/Video Cable to a VCR
If you do NOT have AV inputs, you will need to use an RF Switch and RF Modulator for your hookup. The RF Switch and Modulator are sold separately. (Where to buy):
Connecting the RF Switch to a TV Connecting the RF Switch to a VCR
Hi the chances are its the cable at fault try giving it a good wiggle all the way along and make sure its plugged into the dream and tv properly also make sure your tv is on the correct channel.
if you have got it plugged in via scart lead or the 3 coloured wires then you need to put the telly on av so find the button on the remote that says one of the following av source input or a rectangle with an arrow facing to the right then press that button with the dreamcast on you may need to press it more than once depending on how many inputs the tv has .
let me know if you have any problems and still cant get a picture ok
plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks
This might not help everybody but it might be a cheap fast solution to the "Xbox 360 no picture but sound ok" problem. I have old refurbished 360 that has had no problems at all. SInce I got it have used it with powerwave cooler attached to the back. This cooler has seperate Outputs for Vga, SVga, audio, component and av. Don't need the microsoft cable at all just standard cables. Always had it plugged in with VGA or SVGA cables and got great picture. I bought new 360 and put the old one in bedroom with old tv which only has av inputs. Got shocking picture that was unwatchable but sound was good. Tried all ways but no different. Seems the xbox plug has problems. If you get the powerwave cooler it splits the xbox output socket in to seperate outputs for everything so you can use it with Vga or Svga cables if your tv has those inputs and it should work fine. Only seems to be the standard AV outputs that have problems. Haven't tried the componet leads but I guess they might work as well. If you only have the old yellow, red and white AV inputs on your tv this wont help you but if you have the other types of inputs it might fix it. The powerwave cooler you should be able to buy for under $20 so it could be a cheap solution for this problem everyone seems to be getting lately. It works for me at least so get one and give it a try.
Maybe there's something wrong with the rf and av cables that you have. Try and borrow some of them from your friend. Or, maybe your RF and AV cables' cords are either bent or wrecked. Try fixing them and try again. If it still doesn't work, then come back.
You're using an RF cable I assume.. perhaps buying a composite cable (http://www.mod-chip.com) might solve the problem... I hope the AV output of the GameCube is still intact, as by nature, being an electronic, is able to short circuit by a bad movement seldom... if the Composite cable won't work, you might have to send the machine to Nintendo to fix it up for you...
