Question about Nintendo 64 Console
When I turn on my N64, the red power light comes on but all the tv does is stay a black screen and make a sort of pop/change noise, nothing appears on the screen and no sound plays. I plug in a different system to the same controller, game, power cord and a/v cords, and it works fine. I've cleaned the system and I've opened it up all the way. Nothing looks damaged or loose. I've also checked the jumper pack. Help please? lol
It appears that your power supply is fine (you still get a power light) however your internal game board has a problem. I realize you said that you have eliminated all the other components (very smart process of elimination) so the only thing that has not been swapped is the console itself. I think you've already come to the conclusion that the N64 needs to be repaired, and you just need to hear it from someone else. Unfortunately, the console needs to be repaired. Again, you did a great job isolating the problem, so you've done all the hard work.

I have the same problem and from what I've read elsewhere on the net, it seems to be easily amendable by one of two solutions.
- You can re-tune a channel on your TV (not one of the main ones) and it will find the frequency for your N64 to run on
- If you had a gamecube the yellow, red and white output cables that came with that are (apparently) compatible with both the N64 and SNES and that way you wont have to tune your TV.
Unfortunately for me, I did not have a GC and my TV will not re-tune due to the button on the controller not working! Good luck.
