Nintendo 64 problems

Our Nintendo 64 quit working. The power light will come on but it keeps saying searching for signal on the TV. We had just used it probably 40 minutes before this and it worked like it was suppose to. Is there anything that we can try?

Re: Nintendo 64 problems

First try to be absolutely sure that the TV input jack is not the problem. Try hooking up the N64 to a different TV, or you could try to wiggle (gently) the connector to the input jack.

I have two of these N64's that the kids play with, and had the exact same problem. The input jack is loose on our TV, and we had to tape the wires at a certain angle to keep the connection!

My Nintendo 64 when I was in the middle of a game it froze and the screen went all black and then it went to the tv screen saying no signal then.

Well one time I had this problem with my Nintendo 64 console when I was in the middle of playing perfect dark the screen had froze went black and then it went to saying no signal on the tv screen. The console did not over heat to cause this problem. I thought that it had died on me but I had tried a new expansion pack and it was fine after that. SOmetimes the expansion packs can blank out in the middle of a game play they can die without a warning then. Or it can say expansion pack needed or it will give the white flash that it is turning on but nothing happens after that then.

My nintendo 64 is freezes in the middle of when I am playing it. Now when I re-start it to play the game again the red light would signal that the nintendo is on but no picture is going on the TV. Is it...

Well if it freezes and the screen turns black and than the tv screen says no signal and the light is on i had a problem like that with my 14 year old N64 console so it looked like it was dead and died but it was the expansion pack that did this it makes it look like it died but it didnt.

Nintendo 64 game console, TV says no signal,

This usually indicates that you have the video cables connected incorrectly. The T.V. is just telling you that it's not getting any video signal from the console.

Check your connections, and if all looks well, perhaps the consoles video outputs or cable is shot.

Good luck.

The clean the connectors on the cartridges and game deck before plugging it in and turning on the deck.
If this doesn't work, the cable is broken and will need to be replaced.
Hope this helps!
