Hi, well this is a fairly common failure, the red light ON, and nothing else going on,is usually a Power Supply issue,and/or a laser assembly failure.

No an Electrician is unlikely to be able to repair this unit. You need an extremely experienced and competent technician to repair this unit.
I promise you, that the cheapest and most cost effective way to repair this unit, is to contact Nintendo either a head or local office, Contact them, and arrange to return the unit to them for repair.
This WILL actually get your unit A: Repaired, and fully functioning. B:Will cost you less than almost anywhere else.
Please use this website below to organize, the repair.

No I don't work for Nintendo, lol.
I just have had, many many customers that have bought them into me for repair, I learned from experience exactly what to do and the best way to go about it.

Try troubleshooting the issue first before taking the machine to the technician. What cable are you using? is it RF adapter or are you using AV cables? RF adapter, it is required to have your TV set to channel 3 or 4 while the AV requires you to set your TV to use the input (TV/Video Mode).

My N64 console keeps on resetting its self at the intro of the games. If there was an error in the system what would it say then?

Well if the red light is flickering then that means that you either have a bad capacitor in the console or the ac adapter might have a bad capacitor or its over heating but if the light is not flashing then it means that the software is going bad on you. SO an N64's internal parts are similar to a computers parts but a simple software then and computers have an adavnace software advance means i can do more things so when an advance system resets it can fix its self. So a simple software will just keep on reseting and never get past the reset stage. So if there is an error in the console it should show you on the screen before it resets but sometimes i doesnt.

Red Light comes on & everything is set up correctly, but nothing shows up on the screen. How do I fix this?

Well it might be a power supply issue or and a laser assembly failure. I don't think that an
electrician could repair a N64 console so it would have to be a gamming technition for it to be repiard. I dont recomened having an electrician to fix it.

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.

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

N64 turns on but nothing shows up on the TV

I have the same problem and from what I've read elsewhere on the net, it seems to be easily amendable by one of two solutions.

- You can re-tune a channel on your TV (not one of the main ones) and it will find the frequency for your N64 to run on

- If you had a gamecube the yellow, red and white output cables that came with that are (apparently) compatible with both the N64 and SNES and that way you wont have to tune your TV.

Unfortunately for me, I did not have a GC and my TV will not re-tune due to the button on the controller not working! Good luck.
