Well a green or a grey screen means that there is something wrong with the power supply piece inside of the console that the ac adapter plugs into for the console to work. So I'm going to have to agree with Jill on this then. You could get the power supply piece replaced or fixed by someone that can fix theese old consoles.

SOURCE: N64 Games Show Green-Grey Screen

Having a green/grey screen shows there is signs of life. I believe the power supply that's the problem. In my recent experience the following solution has helped me:

1.) Wiggle the power supply left & right two times. Now try and see if the Nintendo 64 works.

2.) If not, then disconnect and reconnect the power supply and wiggle the power supply left & right twice. Again, try and see if it works.

I hope it works for you!

SOURCE: nintendo 64.black and white picture

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.

SOURCE: no picture on tv screen from ps3 console

It may be that,

1:
You have it on the wrong channel.I personally have had trouble with this.Usually on most modern televisions there is AV 1 2 3 4 and 5,CVI,and HDMI 1 2 and 3.Try each of these channels.

2:
You don't have the cords lined up.The three cords(in the order of Yellow White Red) must be lined up straight up and down.Otherwise the sound will be on one channel while the picture will be on the other.

Thats all I can think of,I hope it helped.

I say your N64 is obsolete at this point. May I suggest playing N64 games on your PC. A rom is a game that is 'ripped' from a game cartridge or cd of a game console (usually a console generation earlier than the second latest.) An emulator is what you run the rom in. The emulator is what allows you to use your mouse, keyboard, etc. to play the game.
http://coolrom.com/ is a great source for roms. You can get roms for the N64, GBA, GBA, GB, GameCube, Nintendo DS and even some sega games!You search for your game, find it in the list of search results and download the game.
http://www.emulator-zone.com/doc.php/n64/ This is a list of N64 emulators that are readily available for you to download.
http://www.emulator-zone.com/ This is the root site of the link above. Please feel free to check it out. There are several other lists of emulators for other game consoles, handheld and home gaming.

Iv had an n64 before so i think i have a good idea of how to set it up. i've managed to tune my tv in to find where abouts it is but there's only a black screen.i can turn the n64 off an the tv screen goes...


Adjust the vertical or horizontal hold controls. This is helpful even if regular TV stations come in fine. If your TV has an automatic fine tuning control (called AFC or AFT), turn it OFF. Use the manual fine tuning dial to adjust the picture. If turning OFF the AFC/AFT causes your TV to display in black and white, then leave the AFC/AFT ON. Slide the Power Switch on the Control Deck to the ON position. While the control deck remains ON, turn the TV off for 10 second then back on again. This resets your AFC/AFT so that it will tune in the signal from the control deck.

Move your control deck farther away from your TV. If the control deck is too close to the TV, the control deck may cause some interference.

Mylittle brother has just bought an n64 but were having terrible trouble tuning it into the tv,he has 2 leads with the console,1 lead goes from console to power supply the other goes from console to...


Ok, with the 3 coloured leads, this is an A/V or audio video lead. You should have 1 yellow, 1 red and 1 white. They simply plug into the corresponding ports on the TV. Also with A/V you don't actually tune the telly into the N64, you simply change mode, for example if you have an LCD TV you can switch between, HDMI, component, A/V etc etc. You simply need to use your TV remote and change the mode to A/V and everything should be fine.

Hope this helps

My N64 isn't working. I put the game in and turn the power on but just get a blank screen. What do i do?


I would suggest checking all the leads are in properly and securely.

You may need to tune one of your unused tv channels to play it. Just turn the N64 on (with a game in) and tune the tv until the picture comes up. If this does not work then you might want to clean up the console and games by using a can of air to clean the dust or check the leads (especially the av/aerial/component).

Hope this helps

My Nintendo 64 Console stopped working


the N64 is an old console. is it one game or more?

Jul 06, 2009 | Nintendo 64 Console

1 Answer

N64 has static and audio noise


If its got what looks like a cable jack plug, its an RF Cable. As is, if those get kinked up badly enough, the copper inside of them can become damages, which can affect the way it sends the signal to the tv from the N64. Those cables can be picked up from local game stores. my suggestion though, is if you have the connectors, go with the Red,Yellow,White setup, Red and White are the sound cables, and the Yellow is your video. Better sound from it.
