Nintendo 64 has power but does not work


Bring the console in to Gamestop or Rock30 Games and have them hook it up to their setup and see if it works. They buy sell and trade n64 games and will have a n64 system already set up at the store. Just switch your console and cables with theirs until you find out what is not working for you.

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.

My Tv doesn't display the N64 game. No sounds come out also.


What you need to do is, first check the tv av input is working, use a dvd player or any other device with the red, white and yellow plugs.
If it works, the problem may be the nintendo AV cable, they are cheap and worth the few bucks to re live all those nostalgic game moments. If replaceing the AV cable doesnt work, check all the solder joints around the AV socket on the N64 main board. I hope this helps. Good luck.

N64 power light comes on, but nothing comes on the screen.


It appears that your power supply is fine (you still get a power light) however your internal game board has a problem. I realize you said that you have eliminated all the other components (very smart process of elimination) so the only thing that has not been swapped is the console itself. I think you've already come to the conclusion that the N64 needs to be repaired, and you just need to hear it from someone else. Unfortunately, the console needs to be repaired. Again, you did a great job isolating the problem, so you've done all the hard work.

Nintendo 64 will not turn on


Take everything out. Chords, games, and jumper/expansion pak.
Turn it on for 10 seconds.
Turn it off.
Blow into the game cartridge and the cartridge slot.
Plug everything back in except for power.
Turn on for 10 seconds.
Turn off.
Plug power in.
It should work now.

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.

Is my n64 broken?


You might have a dead N64 bro. Alot of quality games on that system too.

You can usually find them on Ebay for fairly cheap

N64 Blinking on and off


It seems like an issue with the cartridge slot (as in there's a bad connection somewhere, causing the connection with the cart to be lost, then restored, then lost... etc). Try giving it a good blast with a can of compressed air or possibly go over it with a Q-tip soaked in glass cleaner or 50% isopropyl alcohol.

It may also be an issue with the power cable. I have a similar problem with my Genesis resetting and turning off. It turned out to be caused by a faulty, loose, power cable. Try finding another power cable for your N64 and see if it makes adifference.

N64 wont turn on... i miss it


Had the same problems.. the n64 just turned off after playing dr. mario for a few minutes... anyways, heres what worked for me

1. make sure your wall outlet works *sounds dumb, but better safe then sorry, plug in a light or something to make sure it works*

2. unplug EVERYTHING, controllers, vid cord, power etc

3. let everything be disconnected for about a minute or so, the AC adapter sometimes overheats and turns it self off which might be the problem.

4. ONLY plug in the AC adapter to the n64, make sure its firmly plugged in. turn it on.. it should light up now, if so, plug everything back in. enjoy :)
