Well it might just be the fact that it has died on you now so it needs a new motherboard. The motherboard controllers everything that consoles can do so when the main part goes bad thats not good then. I fix dead consoles buy installing a new motherboard.

Um well you dont have to get a new one you can just get it repaired, if it broke unexpectedly and it has a warranty bring it back to the store you bought it from and you can get a new one for free or from the manufacturer which is nintendo.

My Nintendo 64 when I was in the middle of a game it froze and the screen went all black and then it went to the tv screen saying no signal then.

Well one time I had this problem with my Nintendo 64 console when I was in the middle of playing perfect dark the screen had froze went black and then it went to saying no signal on the tv screen. The console did not over heat to cause this problem. I thought that it had died on me but I had tried a new expansion pack and it was fine after that. SOmetimes the expansion packs can blank out in the middle of a game play they can die without a warning then. Or it can say expansion pack needed or it will give the white flash that it is turning on but nothing happens after that then.

I played the nintendo 64 the other night everything waas fine then the next night no picture would come up or red light

Well it might just be the fact that it has died on you then. Or try a new N64 ac adapter to see if it makes a difference then.

My nintendo 64 is freezes in the middle of when I am playing it. Now when I re-start it to play the game again the red light would signal that the nintendo is on but no picture is going on the TV. Is it...

Well if it freezes and the screen turns black and than the tv screen says no signal and the light is on i had a problem like that with my 14 year old N64 console so it looked like it was dead and died but it was the expansion pack that did this it makes it look like it died but it didnt.

Nintendo DS lite power light comes on but both screens stay dark?

When you boot the Nintendo DS you can change the illumination settings in the main menu.
One the main menu, you will find a sunny symbol in the lower left corner of the screen. Click on that and you should be able to change the level of illumination. If you are also wondering if you can change the brightness during game play, you can't. Games such as Mario 64 DS come with support for brightness change but otherwise you have to do it before game play.

Well I think that its broken then like it sounds like a power supply issue or and a laser assembly failure so you will just have to buy a new one then.

Game works but won't save

This does indeed sound like a glitch in the battery backup system built into the cartridge; the battery could perhaps be dead, although that really should have taken longer to happen. Unfortunately, I don't think you're going to be able to fix this. The good news is that the problem is almost certainly in the cartridge itself and not the console, and a replacement cartridge probably wouldn't be that hard to find, or too expensive.

does the console turn on(lights) any sound , I'am going to guess no, if you have a gamecube or snes with rca cables use those and see if it works,the rf adapters for gamecube and n64 are cross compatabile as well, however the one for snes isn't the same, you may just need another cable, also try setting the tv to ch.3/4 and if you have more than one coaxial input try changing to another , if the console is not turning on then it may be a bad power cord or the mem pak isn't seating right or the console has died, most likely the rf switch has died thought, rca will last longer anyway, either go get one from a local gamestore or if you cant find one for 64 get the gamecube cords they have the same connector on the console end. Hope that helps
