Well I think that its broken then like it sounds like a power supply issue or and a laser assembly failure so you will just have to buy a new one then.

My Nintendo 64 when I was in the middle of a game it froze and the screen went all black and then it went to the tv screen saying no signal then.


Well one time I had this problem with my Nintendo 64 console when I was in the middle of playing perfect dark the screen had froze went black and then it went to saying no signal on the tv screen. The console did not over heat to cause this problem. I thought that it had died on me but I had tried a new expansion pack and it was fine after that. SOmetimes the expansion packs can blank out in the middle of a game play they can die without a warning then. Or it can say expansion pack needed or it will give the white flash that it is turning on but nothing happens after that then.

When turning on my N64, the power light turns on and I have a standard AV cable hooked up, but the video will not come through on the TV.


Step 1:

So you've eliminated the possibility of bad cables. Now you need to eliminate the TV and the Nintendo 64 itself.

Step 2:

For the TV, you can try another TV or make sure that you have the TV set on the right input.

Step 3:

If you can't make it work on an additional TV and you have made absolutely sure that the TV is setup correctly, then you may be looking at a broken Nintendo 64.

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.

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!!!!!

N64 isn't working with Vizio HDTV...


Do this, hook it up to another tv just to make sure that the N64 is workig properly. If it works on another tv then you know the system is fine. If it doesn't work on another tv then it could be that you have dirty games and you need to clean the contacts and then reinsert them into the system and get them to work.

Keep the system on a known good working tv until you can get your games to work and display properly. You can clean the games by using a damp q-tip and wiping the contacts on the bottom of the game back and forth a bunch of times, there will probably be all kinds of black that comes off.

keep on trying games untill you get one to work and display properly, then go ahead and move the tv to the one you want it to work on and test it out and it just might work then.

My nintendo 64 wont read any games. I checked all of the wires and made sure everything was connected. When i put a game in, the screen goes all black and white, wavy/snowy but i could still see a little...


Check if there is dust in the game itself or the consol.Other than that it could be that you wires(I know you checked)that are hooked up to your tv may somehow be losing a signal.Or the wires in the machine(you werent specific which ones you checked) may have become frayed.Or it could just be over used and could need new prosesing software.

My nintendo 64 wont come on, ON the tv.


You need a switch (transformer) to connect it to the incoming signal antenna screws. You will probably need to adapt it to a cable tv plug. The wires you connected are for the sound.
