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

What connections do i use to connect projector to tv?


You don't connect a projector to a TV.

A TV doesn't have the capability of supplying a source signal to another device. It can only accept a signal and display it itself. Connect a DVD player/Blu-ray player/TV receiver/Games Console to the projector directly via the AV sockets.

Use a separate sound system if you need more volume than the projector's tiny built-in speaker can provide.

Bought a 2nd hand N64 & don't know how to set it up on the tv as no instructions.


You now need to find a channel on your TV that ins't used for anything else (eg an old vhs player or non-digital tv) then whilst on that channel you need to go into your TV's menu, there is often a button both on the remote and TV itself for this. This is where you turn on your N64 if you haven't already. You then will need to go onto automatic tuning (or if you prefer, manual tuning, in the programme section (if you dont have a programme section, just srcoll through each section till you find automatic tuning) your TV should then start to search for channels, after a little while of searching it should find the N64's frequency it may be a terrible picture that is mostly fuzz you can either carry on the tuning to see if it'll find it better or just head straight to fine tuning (if you decied to keep going you can still fine tune for the best picture quality possible and also if the TV doesn't find it just follow the previous steps till it locates the N64 again) once fine tuned you will need to store this new channel and then you can go ahead and enjoy countless hours of fun on the worlds best gaming console. (If the automatic tuning doesn't find the N64 at all try manual tuning). If you have any other issue with the console itself just drop me an e-mail at garleet@hotmail.co.uk. Hope I was a help.

Hi i want to connect a tv to my optoma hd 66 projector


hi,
You can't be able to connect a tv to your projector, because it doesn't have a monitor out.
There is only one way. If the source is a DVD player then connect the its HDMI output to the projector and the component video out to the tv. You can't be able to get video out from the composite video output of your DVD player, when you are using HDMI. When plug the HDMI it will switch off the composite video out. The component video out remain ON whether you connect HDMI or not.
ok

I have a new element hdtv and a magnavox dvd/vcr. i can't seem to hook the two together. please help


Greetings, Simple hookup would be connecting analog output from DVD/VCR player to your TV. To do this, use the Audio-Video cable which has 3 terminals at both the ends and each terminal has RED,YELLOW and WHITE pin. Your DVD/VCR player would have analog output socket where you would connect one end of these 3 pins, make sure yellow would go in "VIDEO Out, WHITE would go in "LEFT Audio Out" and RED would go in "RIGHT Audio Out", you can easily identify them cause these sockes would also have the colors on them. Now connect other end of the cables to TV, this would be input to your tv. On the back left hand side of the TV, you would see 3 sockes with YELOW, WHITE and RED colors. These are located between "Coaxial" and "S Video" labels. Connect yellow pin to yellow socket which is "Video In", connect RED pin to RED socket and White to white. Switch on the TV, play any dvd on your player. On your TV remote, press INPUT button which is located on the right hand side top corner on remote, press it and if you get the dvd player video and audio, you should repeat the button press to see the video, this button selectes one by one signals given to TV, so your dvd player input might be on the 2nd,3rd or 4th press, so go through till you get the video signals. Hope this helps !!! --Sandy.

To connect my dvd player


Check your remote. On my Sentry 2, the magic is the SOURCE button, which allows you to access the AUX (auxilliary) channel. This is what you need to select to view your DVD output.
