Question about Nintendo 64 Console

N64 tri-colour output wire thingo (maybe) not working

I've had my nintendo for yonks and its always been slightly temperamental (refusing to turn on for a few days at a time then working fine then turning off halfway through gameplay, yada yada yada) and i managed to pinpoint the problem as the video (yellow) wire that plugs into the television. I could always just move it around a bit and it would work again, but now it doesnt work at all, no matter how much i move it.

so as far as i can see, my options are as follws:
1. Buy new wire
- but where do I buy nintendo wires from now? arent they too old?

2. Get someone to fix it for me
- does that involve getting a new red-white-yellow bit and attatching it to the grey end that goes into the nintendo?

3. Ask people for help
- hey guys, whats up

4. Give up
- preferably not this, I freakin love mario kart.

so any suggestions, redirection, help. etc would be greatly appreciated. I'm not a tech wiz so if possible try to keep lingo (if any) simple.

many thanks!

Well try cleaning the gamepacks out with qutips and rubbing alcohal then or try putting them in halfway instead of full way because sometimes the console read them better if they are in halfway then. Or it might be the expansionpack so try a new expansionpack then. Well sometimes the old console are stubborn because of the old age. Or videogame console want you to understand them and will disobey you if they don't think that you have enough experinence then.

You've either got a bad motherboard or a bad processor (I'd lean to the motherboard being bad). I would honestly take this into a computer repair shop and have them check both.

"Install Yellow" Error - Machine is frozen.

Check all other carts. It might be that one (or more) carts are empty, too. Thats why the machine refuses to work properly.

Unplug from power, wait  two minutes and replug again.

If it doesnt come up correctly the maincircuit baord might be defective due to a defective electrical part.

Do leave the machine always on power connection. You can turn it off by pressing the stand-by-fax button, but you have to keep the machine with power supplied. Set date and time. The machine runs some automatic cleaning cyles every 20 days to keep the nozzles alive and that prevents the permanent ph from drying out!
