Nintendo 64 HDTV

We recently tried to hook our N64 up to our HDTV, i know the AV cables work but we kept getting "No Signal". i chalked it up to our 64 was shot. We bought another one off of Ebay, new system new AV cables. hooked it up and still the same problem anyone have any ideas i was thinking that maybe it was because its an HDTV, and maybe i should try the RF adapter instead

I am not an HDTV expert but I believe they are all backwards compatible so the fact it is HD should not be a problem. Have you tried a vcr or dvd player on the same hook ups? It is possible you are trying to use a video input that is already in use? I know on my TV I have the DVD hooked up with an S-video cable to "Video 2". Right next to the S-video hookup are the red, yellow, white RCA jacks. On my TV these can't be used when the S-video is in use so I have to have the games hooked up to the front panel "Video 3". I would disconnect everything and try hooking the N64 up in each input to see if you can find one that works.

Nintendo 64 has power but does not work


Bring the console in to Gamestop or Rock30 Games and have them hook it up to their setup and see if it works. They buy sell and trade n64 games and will have a n64 system already set up at the store. Just switch your console and cables with theirs until you find out what is not working for you.

the tradditional N64 av cables.

When we hook up our N64 to our LG 42" LCD tv, it says no signal. Is there something we can do to get it to work on this TV?


I think that you need a blue plug for it to work on a digital tv instead of the usuall av cables for N64.

I just got a nintendo 64, and I can't figure out how to get it work on my flat screen. It's a sony, and its an hdtv. The nintendo came with the three wire cable (Red, White, Yellow) and I've tried plugging...


You need to have a regular RCA input for the N64 A/V cable. Neither component or HDMI will work with the N64's RCAs. Almost all TVs still have RCA inputs on them. Look on you television for a set of three inputs (yellow, red, white). If your TV does not have these inputs, you cannot use an N64 with it.

Bought a used gamecube....hooked it up properly, we think, but have audio only ...no video....suggestions


I suggest trying to use a different av cable from the gamecube to the tv, also try using the av cable you have on another unit, the cables are also exchangeable with the nintendo 64 av cable, so if you have a N64 laying around you can test with that cable. Good luck.

Can't not get our Nintendo 64 to work on our new Bravia TV


The Nintendo 64 sends out a signal that can only be properly decoded by old CRT TV's

Those Bravia TV's are the God's TV's even if they did work on it I wouldn't recommend it because it would most definitely eventually ruin the life span of your TV.

But to answer your Question the Cables should be plugged into AV1 which is the Red White and Yellow Connections

Nintendo 64 to jvc hdtv


Check all of your plugs, make sure they are clean. Make sure the game that you have inside the system is clean and free of dust as well as the game connector port on the system. Make sure you are on your A/V channel. If all else fails, you ma have to gt a new A/V plug. When I got my Nintendo 64, I tried to plug it in to my TV using the plug that came with it, but it did not work. I soon found that the Playstation 2 A/V cable that I have also has two additional cables to it, and one of them works in the N64 system. So, I tried to play the system with that cable plugged in, and it worked, so I would suggest buying a new A/V cable that works in the N64 system.

Hope this helps!!!!!
