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.

Hi I can't figure out how to get my N64 to work on my samsung flatscreen. My friend showed how to do it a while back but now i've forgotten. I've been told I need a scart cable but I...


Whoever told you you need a scart cable is wrong, The N64 is an old console therefore requires you to plug it in via a standard ariel port. You then should turn you N64 on and search for new channels using your TV menus to either automatically search for them or you can tune your tv manually. either way you will probably need to fine tune afterwards. If you need more help please e-mail me at garleet@hotmail.co.uk

I dont know how to set it up


- First you need a rather old TV, like maybe before 2002, if you have one. Because on newer TVs N64 graphics are terrible !

- Once you have your TV, check to see if you have two cables with your 64 (if you don't something is missing !). One shaped like a little box on one end and an electrical plug on the other : you hook up the little box to your N64 and plug the device in the nearest power socket. The other cable has a a strange black and rectangular input that hook up in your N64 and 3 sockets that are red, yellow and white. Connect the latter on your TV by finding the same sockets with the same colours !

- Connect your controller to the console (it's the round-ish sockets in front of it)

- insert your game

- THEN turn on your console. Don't turn it on unless everything hooked up !

(if it doesn't work you may want to try the famous turn-off-the-console-blow-into-the-cartridge-put-it-back-and-try-turning-your-N64-again trick !)

Good luck ! :)

I bought a N64. I have everything plugged in, but the N64 only has a red light, and the TV says no signal on every output.


I had an issue like this with my 14 year old N64 console so I tried a new expansion
pack in it and it worked again after that then. It could just be that.

In order to play a different region game on a different region TV (example playing a PAL game on a NTSC tv) your tv needs to be automatic enabled. Some tv's have an option on the remote to change the input signal to PAL NTSC or SECAM. If your tv does not have that then there is literally nothing you can do apart from get a different tv with this feature.
