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.

Yes. Consult your Nintendo 64 manual or your tv manual for more details.

    I just got a nintendo 64, and I can't figure out how to get it work on my flat screen. It's a sony, and its an hdtv. The nintendo came with the three wire cable (Red, White, Yellow) and I've tried plugging...

    You need to have a regular RCA input for the N64 A/V cable. Neither component or HDMI will work with the N64's RCAs. Almost all TVs still have RCA inputs on them. Look on you television for a set of three inputs (yellow, red, white). If your TV does not have these inputs, you cannot use an N64 with it.

    I have a HIgh Def DLP TV can I hook the 64 up to it.

    All newer TV's will have the old connections, the composite ones (red, yellow, white). So, yes, you will be able to connect your 64 to your TV.

    Good luck.

    If you've just bought your xbox 360, then you probably haven't got a HDMI cable.

    Which I think you could need.

    Nintendo 64 to jvc hdtv

    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.

    Hope this helps!!!!!

    It works fine with a high def cable, but when i go to connect it to a tv with the audio video cords nothing at all will come up on the screen.

    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.
    Watch this video and it will help you switch from High Def to AV.
