Question about Denon AVR 3808Ci Receiver

Denon 3808ci won't upconvert old video game consoles

Hi,

I was recently trying out my old SNES and Nintendo 64 on the auxiliary settings of the receiver where my other component device (Wii, GameCube) work, but I noticed that these old systems weren't able to show video, but sound was coming through fine.

Also, the Wii has a feature in which it allows for download for old games, and when I tried playing an old SNES game, the screen blacked out while the sound was still active, ruling out any bad wire connection.

Any help would be great, thanks!

Since the games are so old and the SNES is an ancient console most tv's are made for the newer ones/Wii, Xbox, ETc./ So The Tv May Require Certain Wires for the console to function correctly, it also may be that your wires for the SNES are corroding in side *( Copper Wires Etc. )

Well It might be the gamepack but the only way to test it out is to try it one a different N64 console to see if you have any luck if it works somewheres else than your N64 console has an internal problem of it 0 luck on something else than Its a fake gamepack because the old consoles will reject fake game packs then.

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.

My n64 wont work


Well I am currently having a similar problem with my aqua N64 console and my black N64 console. So it could be the ac adapter that could be the issue because Im having the same problem sort of with my SNES console so I brought a new ac adapter for my SNES and it works. It could be the same issue with my N64 consoles every thing looks fine on the inside so it has to be the ac adapter then. Or it might of had died on you. Video games consoles are funny at this they are fine the day before and they are not working the next day.

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.

You may have either a problem with your wires, or you may have a problem with the settings on your TV/VCR/DVD.

HELP


does the console turn on(lights) any sound , I'am going to guess no, if you have a gamecube or snes with rca cables use those and see if it works,the rf adapters for gamecube and n64 are cross compatabile as well, however the one for snes isn't the same, you may just need another cable, also try setting the tv to ch.3/4 and if you have more than one coaxial input try changing to another , if the console is not turning on then it may be a bad power cord or the mem pak isn't seating right or the console has died, most likely the rf switch has died thought, rca will last longer anyway, either go get one from a local gamestore or if you cant find one for 64 get the gamecube cords they have the same connector on the console end. Hope that helps
