I have a snes that I have had for over 20 years and it has started having problem with some of my games freezing while starting up and the ones that do play have sound distortion. Some play with almos


I am guessing that the console is just getting old then.
Other Screen Problems
  1. Make sure you are using only licensed accessories with your system.
    We find that video problems occur most when an unlicensed RF switch is used. Make sure the name "Nintendo" is molded onto the RF switch, as opposed to "for use with Nintendo." Unlicensed products are not fully compatible with our systems and may not work correctly.
  2. Check all of the system connections to verify that they are firm and correct.
    • For AV connections
      Remove the AV cables and reinsert them with a slight twisting motion
    • For RF connections
      Make sure the channel switch on the TV and system are set to the same channel (either CH3 or CH4)
  3. Slide the Power Switch on the Control Deck to the OFF position. Remove the Game Pak and re-load it, pressing firmly to make sure it is locked in place.
    Important Note: Removing the Game Pak with the power ON will cause the Game Pak image to freeze on the screen. Press Reset to correct the problem. Always turn your system OFF before inserting or removing Game Paks.
  4. Slide the Power Switch on the Control Deck to the ON position.
If the above troubleshooting doesn't fix the problem, see below.

What does an expansion pack for the n64 do? what is its purpose? and are they interchangeable?


I will refer you to a page on Wikipedia that explains it -- but the simple explanation is that the Nintendo 64 Expansion Pack increases the RAM on the N64 from 4MB to 8MB. There were a few games with improved graphics and game play that REQUIRED the expansion pack.

Yes you can remove the Expansion Pak from one N64 and put it into another. However, your N64 will NOT work without either the Expansion Pak or the Jumper Pak in that slot. The original memory card that came in there was called the Jumper Pak which was 4MB. The Expansion Pak was 8MB.

I have an old N64 and to play majora's mask it says i need an expansion pak so i ordered an expansion pak but when i replaced the jumper pak with the expansion pak the system still turns on but for some...


If your Nintendo 64 console operates without error when the jumper pak is installed, but fails to function when the expansion pak is installed, by process of elimination this most likely means that the expansion pak you purchased is defective.

However, prior to purchasing another expansion pak (or attempting to exchange/get refunded for it), make sure the contact points on both the pak and the console slot are free of any dust, dirt, or other contaminants. Use a lint-free, dry cloth to do this. Water and/or cleaning products can further damage the system.

If, after cleaning the contacts, it still fails to function, seek an exchange or refund.

Did you buy a bootleg or OEM expansion pack? Use a butter knife to pop it out, the system will play normal when you put the original back in or get a OEM expansion pack.

My console wont work and when it did it had an error sign. Something about needing a pak. What do I need and how do I get one?


your looking for the "expansion pack" its needed to play the games on the n64, it is located on top of the n64 towards he front of the console. that little door/flap between the power and reset button. get one online for cheap. like ebay or something. keep in mind there are 2 different kind of expansion packs on is black. it is the standard one. one is red on top, that one is better and will play all n64 games like donkey kong 64 and zelda ocarina of time

Does this happen with other games? If so, it's the console, becasue working N64 consoles are difficult to find. If not, it is the cartridge, and you might want to clean it.

Nintendo 64 expansion pak


Barb3: The Jumper Pack (JP) is a bypass for the expansion cartridge. You were supposed to turn off the equipment remove the JP and then use the expansion cartridge. Your N64 Ram it's probably gone for good. Is either replace the RAM, which is hard to find or replace the N64. Sorry for that.... SithPitt
