    Just got this N64 system and it is likewise giving me the same problem. I have checked the RCA and antenna in plugs to make sure. I'm curious if something is loose inside the multi-out plug on the system itself. Any thoughts?

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.

My 64 is not working on tv


The game cartridge contacts are probably just dirty and/or corroded. Clean em with rubbing alcohol and a q-tip. The games should work fine. Mine is the same way cause its so old. Even my Super Nintendo does it. Unfortunately, you may have to do this every time before playing, but only if they don't work the first time.

Nintendo 64 - Blank Screen Troubleshooting

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.
Make sure your system is hooked up correctly. This is the number one reason for a blank screen. To ensure all hookup connections are firm and correct, remove the AV cables and reinsert them with a slight twisting motion (this will help fully seat the connections). For more information about connecting the system, check the following hookup steps:

Audio/Video Cable to a TV
Audio/Video Cable to a VCR
Make sure you are using all licensed accessories with your system. Unlicensed products are not fully compatible with Nintendo systems and may not work correctly.

Make sure the system has power. If you don't see the red power light when you turn your system on, go to the No Power Light instructions.

Slide the Power Switch on the Control Deck to the OFF position. Remove the Game Pak and re-load it, pressing firmly to ensure it is locked in place. Slide the Power Switch on the Control Deck to the ON position. (Inserting the game with the Power ON will result in a blank screen.)

Check under the Memory Expansion door (on the top of the Control Deck) to verify that the Jumper Pak or Expansion Pak is still inserted. If one is not inserted, slide the Power Switch to the OFF position, insert the Jumper Pak or Expansion Pak and slide the Power Switch to the ON position. Simply pressing reset will not solve the problem. You must turn the power off and then back on.

If the above steps do not resolve the problem you are experiencing, there may be a problem in one of your hookup cables and not your system. Try purchasing a new connection cable (how to buy replacement parts). You can also try borrowing the cable from a friend to see if it solves your problem before purchasing a new item.

If this does not resolve the problem you are experiencing with your system, your system may need to be replaced. For more information on what options are available, please click here.

Blank screen when I turn on my N64


The blank screen is usually caused by a faulty connection.

If you are sure all of your cables and the expansion pack are installed correctly, try removing the pack and blowing on both the expansion bay and the expansion itself to knock any loose dust out.

If that doesn't help, check the expansion pack and then the the bay for damaged or bent pins. Check the game cart as well.

If everything appears undamaged, you may have a broken/defective expansion. See if you can get your money back and then try to find another one from a trustworthy retailer or friend.

Blank Screen


well, the t.v could possibly be broken, call a repair man and describe your problem and maybe they can help, but do not attempt to fix the t.v yourself as a component inside can cause fatalities.

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.

Blank screen


If you're using a game cart in the bottom slot of the DS it is because you are running an older Game Boy Advanced game that does not support dual screens. Pull out all game cartrages and start the DS in it's splash/ setup screen. If one of the screens is black there then one screen is bad. It not worth fixing unless you have a warranty so at that point head to your local store and pick out a sweet new color.

My Nintendo DS top screen is blank white and is not working


It's a poor connection to your top screen that's your problem, the issue is either that the conection is loose that holds the top screen ribbon cable to the board or that the ribbon cable to the top screen is damaged and will require replacing
