My 64 appears to radomly reset for no reason. I have checked to make sure that contacts are cleanded and I do not beleive it is a short in the wire. The red light on front does NOT flicker wheb this happens. Any suggestions?
Re: My nintendo 64 randomly resets for no aparent reason
I have the exact same problem! I recently tried to play Zelda OoT and i got about 5 minutes into it and it resets. It isnt always at the same spot but it will at some point just reset making it not very fun to play. Im not sure that over heating is the problem. My system is out in the open. This has also occurred on several games. Im thinking it is just old and maybe has a short in it somewhere.

Hello, n64 cartridges are outdated for that reason exactly. They have a small space to save game info. A quick off and back on is actually the way you reset the memory. Say you bought someone else's n64 and each game you loaded had saved info on it. Powering off and then turning it back on, would erase that data and allow you to start your own game. Once your 64 went instantly off, it reset/erased the saved info. Unfortunately there is nothing I know of to get it back. Sorry. Hope this helps though.
Well you know on how computers will re set them selves when they have an error in the software so put it this way a N64 internal parts are like a computers pieces but a simple software so when it resets its self it acts like its going to repair its self but this is inpossible so it will just keep on redoing then. error in the software then.
Well you know on how computers will redo them selves when they have an error in their software and programming so you see that an n64 consoles parts are similar to a computers piece but a simpler software so when it does the resetting it says im going to fix it but since that its impossible fro it to fix its self it will just only keep reseting over and over again then.
could just need the power switch replaced in the system can ushally buy a new one off ebay for a couple of bucks, but if thats not the issue clean the battery connectors and the battery to make sure its getting the best possible connection.
Other then that there could be other things to try but those are the most simplest of fixes for that issue.
If it becomes a motherboard issue then its gonna get costly.
Get a cleaning kit and clean out the terminals on the game cartridge and game slot. Corrosion on the terminals is common on older systems and games. They should be cleaned regularly. Maybe once a month or as problems occur. This should always be your first troubleshooting step when a game stops working properly.
