Question about Nintendo 64 Console

1 Answer

N64 power light comes on, but nothing comes on the screen.

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.

SOURCE: N64 turns on but nothing shows up on the TV

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.

Check the AV cables may be not connected right or the AV cable is broken.

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.

Iv had an n64 before so i think i have a good idea of how to set it up. i've managed to tune my tv in to find where abouts it is but there's only a black screen.i can turn the n64 off an the tv screen goes...


Adjust the vertical or horizontal hold controls. This is helpful even if regular TV stations come in fine. If your TV has an automatic fine tuning control (called AFC or AFT), turn it OFF. Use the manual fine tuning dial to adjust the picture. If turning OFF the AFC/AFT causes your TV to display in black and white, then leave the AFC/AFT ON. Slide the Power Switch on the Control Deck to the ON position. While the control deck remains ON, turn the TV off for 10 second then back on again. This resets your AFC/AFT so that it will tune in the signal from the control deck.

Move your control deck farther away from your TV. If the control deck is too close to the TV, the control deck may cause some interference.

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.

N64 light comes on, but nothing comes on screen


Make sure that the game you are trying to play is free of dust and other obstructions.  I know that the label on the back of the game says that you should never blow on the edge connector, but it doesn't harm the game. (Trust me I've been cleaning the connectors for years now, and it hasn't been damaged.  After you throughly rid the game of dust, do the same with the edge connector on the N64.  Simply hold the opening open and blow the dust out.  This should work.   Please give feedback!! Hope this helps!!
