    my n64 seemed to be working fine because i was playing it and it was all good. But then it made almost like a ripping or zapping noise and froze up. So then i turned it off and tried to turn it back on, the red light came on but the screen showed nothing at all. i waited about 20 minutes and tried again but still nothing. i dont know what to do now.

Vcr/dvd player and nintendo 64


you N64 should have the cable with yellow/red/white connections(RCA) Those should plug into the VCR ports that say Input. Then run that to your TV through the screw on Coax cable.

I have a Samsung flat screen tv and cannot set up a n64


Upon looking up your tv I realize it has no composite (yellow, red, white) input. Without that you can not hook up your N64. There are other options though. You could buy an RF adapter for the N64 (Gamecube, Super Nintendo, and N64 cables are the same) but by doing so you will lower the picture quality a bit. Or you can buy a component to composite converter (like this but if you shop around you could probably find a better one for cheaper http://www.amazon.com/Component-Composite-w-Down-Scaling/dp/B003FJKHBU ) Lastly if you have a DVD player or VCR that has component cables you could hook that up to your tv and then hook the N64 into it. Good luck!

Nintendo 64 has power but does not work


Bring the console in to Gamestop or Rock30 Games and have them hook it up to their setup and see if it works. They buy sell and trade n64 games and will have a n64 system already set up at the store. Just switch your console and cables with theirs until you find out what is not working for you.

Why does the red light on my nintendo 64 come on for a fraction of a second and then not work


Well if the red light is flickering then it might be a bad ac adapter so you could buy a new ac adapter to see if it works then. Or bad capacitor inside of the console oe or the other. It might be time to buy a new N64 console.

I dont know how to set it up


- First you need a rather old TV, like maybe before 2002, if you have one. Because on newer TVs N64 graphics are terrible !

- Once you have your TV, check to see if you have two cables with your 64 (if you don't something is missing !). One shaped like a little box on one end and an electrical plug on the other : you hook up the little box to your N64 and plug the device in the nearest power socket. The other cable has a a strange black and rectangular input that hook up in your N64 and 3 sockets that are red, yellow and white. Connect the latter on your TV by finding the same sockets with the same colours !

- Connect your controller to the console (it's the round-ish sockets in front of it)

- insert your game

- THEN turn on your console. Don't turn it on unless everything hooked up !

(if it doesn't work you may want to try the famous turn-off-the-console-blow-into-the-cartridge-put-it-back-and-try-turning-your-N64-again trick !)

Good luck ! :)

The red light comes on for my n64 but nothing happens


Hi there, At a guess Id say the contacts on the Game Cartridge are dirty, you could try a couple of things:
  1. Blow on the contacts on the Cartridge and then push firmly into the N64 - Test game, if doesn't work move to next step
  2. Get some rubbing alcohol solution and a cotton bud and gently clean the contacts on the cartridge - Test game, if doesn't work move to next step
  3. Get some rubbing alcohol solution and a cotton bud and gently clean contacts in the N64 console cartridge slot - Test game
Cheers

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!!
