Double check all the connections. Make sure the cables are plugged into the TV's jacks completely (when I first plugged my N64 into my new HDTV, I had to use some force to ensure the cables were in all the way). Maybe swab down the N64's AV port with isopropyl alcohol or glass cleaner using a Q-tip to ensure a good connection.
Be sure that your HDTV isn't trying to do any odd scaling with the N64's image output.

It looks like you are saying standard definition pictures do not cover the screen like HD pictures do. Standard def is formatted 4:3 and high def is 16:9. They are not the same so your high def screen is made to display the not as tall but wider high def picture. In order to fill the screen with the taller and not as wide 4:3 aspect ratio std def picture you must tell the TV to stretch the picture or otherwise fill the screen.The TV will have controls you can exercise for this purpose and you can set it up to always show std def in a particular manner. The alternative, if you want the standard Def picture to look true to form, is to view standard def in Letter Box form. It's appearance will then include black panels on the sides of the picture. So the problem is not with the TV but in accepting older format pictures playing on newer format displays (TVs.)
2 things have to happen. first, your tv has to be set for the correct resolution, second, You need to be recieving high def from your cable/sat provider.Your tv does not make programming high def, it allows high def.
Plug an N64 controller into the "Player 1" port on the Nintendo 64.
Place the N64 Controller Pack into the memory card slot on the Nintendo 64 controller.
Insert a Nintendo 64 game into the cartridge slot on the N64.
Hold down "Start" on the N64 controller.
Turn the Nintendo 64 on via the "Power" switch on the device. After the console loads, the Controller Pack menu will appear on the screen.
Release the "Start" button on the N64 controller.
Browse through the saves listed, using the N64 controller's directional pad.
Highlight the game you want to erase.
Select the "Delete" option. The pages that were occupied by the game save will be erased from the Controller Pack.
Repeat Steps 7 though 9 until you're finished erasing pages on the Controller Pak. Restart the N64 if you wish to play the game that was inserted into the device, or turn the Nintendo 64 off if you are done using the console.
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.
There are certain settings on the PS3 that has to be changed each time that you switch from High Def to AV. You have to plug both cords in and turn the PS3 on and view the screen with the High Def. You have to go to Settings --> Display Settings --> Video Output Settings then follow the instructions.
