Just bought a used N64. Donkey Kong 64 and DK

I just bought a used N64 for my child. Donkey Kong 64 and DK Racing do not work, but Tetras and Toy Story do. Do I need another item for the system, or are the used games just defective?

Your Nintendo 64 is fine. Donkey Kong 64 requires the following expansion pak to work because of its enhanced graphics.

It could be the games them selves, these games if i remember the older ones have a battery built in(to save race stats ect). You may be able to find a security bit set at a local hardware store and open the game, and you may also be able to replace the battery. while this will not be covered at all by any warranty etc. you may be able to get the game to run again. when you open it explore and look for battery leakage and see if it caused any damage, if damaged it may be more work to save. if only a dead battery you may get a quick swap and works again. Make sure if you do replace the battery look at it for voltage and type and MATCH them. dont try to stick just any old battery in there.. This should be some help to you. if your not sure if you can do these. check with a local INDEPENDENT game store they may be able to help you out for a small fee.

My N64 Is Auto Restarting...


Well try leaning the gamepacks out with qutips and rubbing alchoal and buy new games to see if they work too. Im guessing that the mem cart that loads up the games in the console might be wearingout too.

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 console wont work and when it did it had an error sign. Something about needing a pak. What do I need and how do I get one?


your looking for the "expansion pack" its needed to play the games on the n64, it is located on top of the n64 towards he front of the console. that little door/flap between the power and reset button. get one online for cheap. like ebay or something. keep in mind there are 2 different kind of expansion packs on is black. it is the standard one. one is red on top, that one is better and will play all n64 games like donkey kong 64 and zelda ocarina of time

I just bought a N64 and the game Donkey Kong 64 from ebay. I played it for about half an hour and the whole thing just froze. Is it the game or the system. I need to know so I can get my money back or if...


Well it might be the expansionpack then because its telling you that the expansion pack going to die on you soon. I had a freezing problem with my aqua N64 console so I put the catriages in halfway and it works amnd try cleaning the console out too. My black one works fine with the expanson pack so its not the expansonpack then.

N64 red light


Try blowing out the Game slot on the console, and then blow out the large metal prong on the bottom of the game. Also try waiting a little bit, your nintendo might need to cool down.
After a long time n64 games fail to start up on most attempts, so keep trying, it will start up eventually.

I just tried to use my nintendo 64 for the first time in a while.


I have trouble with my old N64 cartridges also, some work and some don't. Typically, I would suspect the cartidges as being the problem, but in your case, it's possible there is an issue with the game unit itself since none of your games fully works. Sometimes wiggling the cartridge and hitting the reset button can help get games running, if the cartridge connectors are a bit corroded.
