Question about Nintendo 64 Console

Game Set up question

We were given a Nintendo 64 game system. We did not get a manual for connecting the game to our TV. It appears that one of the cords is missing as we do not have a cord to connect the unit to the TV. We seem to have all of the cables except one that comes from the CPU and the port is labeled "multi out". Is that the only thing we need to make the system work? Is there an on-line set-up manual that I've failed to locate somewhere?

Thanks for your help.

There are only to cables you need to hook it up.
1. Power Cord

Nintendo 64 AV to TV Hookup

Important Note:
We highly recommend you review the following precautions before you set up and operate your Nintendo system:
Important Safety Warnings & Precautions
Hardware Precautions / Maintenance
Game Pak Precautions / Maintenance
Precautions Concerning TV Screen Damage (Image Retention)
Installation Steps:

Locate the Audio/Video inputs on the back of the TV.
Place the yellow end of the Stereo A/V cable into the Video "in" on the back of the TV. Connect the red end of the cable to Audio "in" Right. Connect the white end of the cable to the Audio "in" Left. Use a slight twisting motion when inserting the each cable and ensure the cables are firmly pressed into the input.
Note: If you have a mono television with only one Audio input, click here for a diagram of how the hook-up will look. The Y-adapter pictured is optional; you can also simply leave the white cable disconnected instead.

Connect the rectangular (gray) plug of the Stereo A/V cable into the "multi-out" connector on the back of the Control Deck.
After system is connected to the TV:

Insert Game Pak fully into the Control Deck.
Plug the Controller(s) into the front of the system using the left most port for Player 1.
Plug the AC Adapter into the back of the system . Plug the other end into a wall outlet.
Slide the Power Switch on (toward Game Pak).
Turn on the TV and locate the input select. It's often called: input select, AUX (auxiliary), Line, Line In, Input, Source, Select, In, or EXT external). Switch the input select to show the Nintendo game.
The game image should now be displayed on the screen. You're ready to play!
If after following these directions completely you are not able to view the game, try our Troubleshooting Tips.

How to connect nintendo 64 on a dish network tv

Can I connect my Nintendo to my Cable Box, my DVD, or my VCP (video cassette player)?
Your Nintendo system requires AV inputs to work. These products do not provide inputs. Connecting to them is not possible. Unless you get a blue plug for it to work then with the connection then.

We have no manual - need instructions on how to hook it to the TV.

Nintendo 64 Hookups

Quick Tip! If your system is connected using AV cables and you cannot see the game on your screen, it is likely all you need to find is the input select on your TV or VCR. Link here for help.
The Stereo Audio/Video Cable that is included with the Nintendo 64 will allow you to connect the Control Deck to most televisions or video cassette recorders (VCR). First, look at the back of your television AND your VCR and see if you have Audio/Video inputs . Though your TV may not have them, almost all VCRs do.

If you DO have AV inputs, choose where you want to connect to:

Audio/Video Cable to a TV
Audio/Video Cable to a VCR

If you do NOT have AV inputs, you will need to use an RF Switch and RF Modulator for your hookup. The RF Switch and Modulator are sold separately. (Where to buy):

Connecting the RF Switch to a TV
Connecting the RF Switch to a VCR

If connecting by co axial or aerial type connection then you will have to tune in a channel using either manual or automatic tuner on the TV. It would be better/simpler if you had phono or scart connections from the nintendo

Nintendo screen not appearing on tv

You need a game in order for the system to boot up. The red light will come on, but nothing will happen without a game.

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.
