Nintendo 64 has power but does not work

Bring the console in to Gamestop or Rock30 Games and have them hook it up to their setup and see if it works. They buy sell and trade n64 games and will have a n64 system already set up at the store. Just switch your console and cables with theirs until you find out what is not working for you.

What cords do you put in the NINTENDO ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM?

The Nintendo Entertainment System has 2 types of connectors for Audio/Video and one type of connector for power.

For the power supply, it uses AC power supply, found here: (Nintendo Repair Shop) (Amazon)
For audio/visual, you can use the coaxial/F connection (NRS) (Amazon) or, for better quality, composite cables (NRS, Amazon).

Hope this was helpful!

My nintendo 64 will not work. The power comes on, and the red, white, and yellow cables are in my tv, but when I turn on the AV function on the tv (which is what I always use for video games and dvd etc.)...

I would see if you can connect it to another TV so see if it works, if it does not it could be an issue with the cable. I believe Nintendo sells spare cables on their website, if not I would check craigslist/amazon/Ebay.

Nintendo 64 will not turn on

64's as they get older and with most gaming consoles the connections get worn.The power supply is junk on those! It's a cube that has to fit just right into the slot to make a solid connection.Here's a possible solution.

1.Turn off your 64 and pull out the power supply cube blow on it and in the space where it was.

2.Take the game out blow on it.

3. When you put the game in push it down a little harder than normal "not very hard dont break it" but securing the connection this way.Do the same with the power supply.

Transfer pack

I believe he is talking about the memory card or the expansion pak.
The Nintendo 64 has memory units that plug into the slot in the back of the controllers. This is used for saving game information. Here is a picture:
There is also a memory unit upgrade called the Expansion Pak that some games took advantage of for slightly better graphics. See this listing at amazon by clicking HERE.
Let me know if that helped.
Take Care,

I have purchased the av cable you need on ebay. There are plenty of them available, most have pics of the cable. You need a rectanglular plug with three RCA jacks to connect to your tv. Unless you have an older tv, that will only accept the regular tv antenna connector. Then you will need an RF adapter. Have seen these on ebay also.

Hope this helps.
