Question about Nintendo 64 Console
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).

Tips for a great answer:
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.
