As far as I know, you should be fine. Just plug it into a tv to make sure though.

Nintendo 64 AV to TV Hookup



Important Note:
We highly recommend you review the following precautions before you set up and operate your Nintendo system:
Important Safety Warnings & Precautions
Hardware Precautions / Maintenance
Game Pak Precautions / Maintenance
Precautions Concerning TV Screen Damage (Image Retention)
Installation Steps:

Locate the Audio/Video inputs on the back of the TV.
Place the yellow end of the Stereo A/V cable into the Video "in" on the back of the TV. Connect the red end of the cable to Audio "in" Right. Connect the white end of the cable to the Audio "in" Left. Use a slight twisting motion when inserting the each cable and ensure the cables are firmly pressed into the input.
Note: If you have a mono television with only one Audio input, click here for a diagram of how the hook-up will look. The Y-adapter pictured is optional; you can also simply leave the white cable disconnected instead.

Connect the rectangular (gray) plug of the Stereo A/V cable into the "multi-out" connector on the back of the Control Deck.
After system is connected to the TV:

Insert Game Pak fully into the Control Deck.
Plug the Controller(s) into the front of the system using the left most port for Player 1.
Plug the AC Adapter into the back of the system . Plug the other end into a wall outlet.
Slide the Power Switch on (toward Game Pak).
Turn on the TV and locate the input select. It's often called: input select, AUX (auxiliary), Line, Line In, Input, Source, Select, In, or EXT external). Switch the input select to show the Nintendo game.
The game image should now be displayed on the screen. You're ready to play!

How to install software to gfive g111 mobile


Computer Monitors

Nintendo home consoles are designed for use through home televisions and VCRs, using standard A/V, S-Video, component, or RF connectors (for older systems). Computer monitors typically do not have these connections. There are however two ways a hookup to a computer monitor could be accomplished:

With a PC TV Card:
A TV card inserted into your PC may allow you to connect your system if the card has the proper connections (such as RF, A/V, S-Video, component, or Coaxial). However, we have found that the image quality is not as clear as it is on a TV, in most cases.
With a Direct Connection (RGB or DVI Cables):
Nintendo does not manufacture any cables to make an RGB or DVI connection. While other companies may manufacture wires that can make this possible, we are not able to recommend them, as they are not licensed by Nintendo.

Original-Style Super NES RF to TV Hookup



Installation Steps:

Locate the TV's VHF IN [ANT, CATV, or 75(ohm)] or Cable Connector.
Disconnect the existing cable wire from the TV's VHF IN.
Connect the short, thick wire from the RF Switch (labeled ANT) to your TV's VHF IN.
Reconnect the existing cable wire (disconnected in step 2) to the silver post labeled ANT on the RF switch.
Connect the thin wire of the RF Switch (labeled Control Deck) to the back of the Super NES (labled RF Out).
On the back of the Super NES, set the 3/4 switch so that it matches the channel of the TV.
Note: The RF Switch does not produce stereo sound. To get stereo sound, connect your Control Deck to your TV or VCR using the Stereo Audio/Video Cable.

After the system is connected to the TV:

Insert the Game Pak firmly into the Control Deck.
Plug the controller(s) into the front of the Control Deck. Use the far left port for a one player game.
Plug the AC Adapter into the back of the Control Deck. Plug the other end of the cord into a wall outlet.
Slide the Power Switch to the On position.
Turn on the TV and set it to the appropriate channel (3 or 4.)
The game image should now be displayed on the TV screen. You are ready to play!

I cant tune in my nintendo do you know what its meant to be set too


Hi your NES should have on it's right hand side 2 Audio Video inputs have you tried connecting it to your TV via Audeo Video Cable and selecting Video channel on your TV dont worry about using the old RF switch they are for older TV Units. Here is a picture of what the AV Cables look like http://www.gameoz.com.au/store/nintendo-entertainment-system/nes-accessories/nintendo-nes-audio-video-cable-no-more-tuning.html

Problem with NES


Check on the back of the nintendo system if it is on same channel as tv, little switch is on the back next to the power cord.

example..tv channel 3 and nintendo system channel 3

If that doesn't work your cable is not properly connected, You can't use both rf switch and av cable. It one or the other. rf connect in the back and to coax cable. Av cable connect on the right side of the system and front input on tv..


Make sure your games are clean also. Good Luck.
