color circuit is out, try banging the set on the frame with the palm of your hand to see if color comes on or fluctuates, if so you have a loose component which is only fixable by you if you are really knowledgeable about the inside of a TV
You probably have the RCAs in the component video hookups. Its easy to confuse them as they are similar ports. They are usually red, blue, and green. Look for the yellow, white, and red hookups. Those are for RCA connections as they don't work in the component hookups for HD video. i.e. blue-ray, PS3 That will cause the video to look grey and grainy.
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.
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.
In order to play a different region game on a different region TV (example playing a PAL game on a NTSC tv) your tv needs to be automatic enabled. Some tv's have an option on the remote to change the input signal to PAL NTSC or SECAM. If your tv does not have that then there is literally nothing you can do apart from get a different tv with this feature.
Well it might be an issue with the av cables or the rf switch or the tv its self. One time I plugged my SNES console into the rya jacks for video 2 and the screen was in black grey and white but I tried it on video 1 with my av cable and channel 3 for my rf switch and it was fine. It could be the problem that i had.
