N64 connecting through a projector

I have just got a 2nd hand N64 . However I belong to a family that does not have a tv! We have a dvd player (not recorder) and a projector which we use for watching films. (The dvd player has had its transmitter removed). Can I get the N64 to work with the equipment I have? If so how?

    Thanks for the response. I have already tried the connection as suggested but nothing happens - no picture or sound. Looking at it, the projector won't have speakers and neither has the N64 so the sound wouldn't be there anyway; which is why I wanted to route it through the dvd player which is connected to the HiFi amp and speakers. The same problem arises tho' as the dvd/speakers are using the white and red sockets. Have tried the scart socket on the dvd with an adaptor for the coloured leads but still nothing. There isn't a scart socket on the projector for me to try it that way. Am beginning to despair!!!

    Problem solved!! I don't know why but after I had tried the console out (and had it working) on a friends TV, I then tried again with the projector and 'Hey Presto' it worked. Nothing was done diferently so I don't know why, but I'm not complaining.

Well, if your projector has audio and video inputs for the n64 it should work. try looking for the white, red, and yellow inputs on your projector

Vcr/dvd player and nintendo 64

you N64 should have the cable with yellow/red/white connections(RCA) Those should plug into the VCR ports that say Input. Then run that to your TV through the screw on Coax cable.

I have a Samsung flat screen tv and cannot set up a n64

Upon looking up your tv I realize it has no composite (yellow, red, white) input. Without that you can not hook up your N64. There are other options though. You could buy an RF adapter for the N64 (Gamecube, Super Nintendo, and N64 cables are the same) but by doing so you will lower the picture quality a bit. Or you can buy a component to composite converter (like this but if you shop around you could probably find a better one for cheaper ) Lastly if you have a DVD player or VCR that has component cables you could hook that up to your tv and then hook the N64 into it. Good luck!

the tradditional N64 av cables.

My n64 turns on and is hooked up to the tv and it doesn't show any picture or has any sound coming out of it

make sure your connection on the back of the N64 is all the way in the N64. Also check the connections on the back of the TV to make sure you have them plugged into an "input".

My Tv doesn't display the N64 game. No sounds come out also.

What you need to do is, first check the tv av input is working, use a dvd player or any other device with the red, white and yellow plugs.
If it works, the problem may be the nintendo AV cable, they are cheap and worth the few bucks to re live all those nostalgic game moments. If replaceing the AV cable doesnt work, check all the solder joints around the AV socket on the N64 main board. I hope this helps. Good luck.
