Well it might just be the fact that it has died on you and is dead by now too.

Make sure your cables are tight... take a q-tip with a little rubbing alchol and apply to game cartidge and inside the N64 where the cartridge fits in... wait until it drys (only about 5 minutes) and then try it. Sounds like it's just dirty:)

try syncing the wii and the remotes. there is a small red button on the wii covered by a small door. and as for the wii remote, there is a small red button where the batteries are located. hold them down for at least 10 seconds i would say and then try turning it on. good luck.

SOURCE: My nintendo 64 has power ( Meaning the red light

Maybe your av cable is damaged or not plugged in firmly. Try unplugging the av cable and reinserting it on both ends. If that doesn't work I suggest rubbing a damp paper towel over the contacts of the game cartridge.

Try replacing the video cable. If that does not work, see if you can purchase a replacement video cable for the N64

SOURCE: My wii will not turn

hi have you tried doing this
1 remove the mains lead from back of wii, and also unplug from mains leave both ends disconnected then leave it for at least 10 min then after this time plug both ends back in and give it a try, doing this resets the power brick and usually solves the problem.

let me know how you get on or if you still have the problem after trying this

make sure its not plugged into the wall socket and also the back of the wii you need to have both ends free so the power brick can reset itself ok

please rate this solution, thanks

My nintendo 64 does not turn on anymore and the last time i played it did. But the last time I played it was probably a year or two ago. But it has been in a case and not left out or anything

Here are some troubleshooting steps to get your Nintendo 64 up and running again.
  1. Try unplugging and replugging in the power cable.
  2. Use a different electrical outlet.
  3. Use a different power cord.
If problems persist you may need to purchase a new system. Best of luck.

No picture, siren type noise as restarting

My Toshiba dlp 62hm116 was used for 3 months then stored for 2 years, I turned it on yesterday and it makes a loud grinding noise which I think is probably from the exhaust fan area and the picture is black except white at both vertical sides. It worked fine the last time I used it 2 years ago. Any ideas?

Will not turn on

With the power cord getting hot it sounds like there is something up with the power supply section. Perhaps a faulty transformer or something.

Need help fixing

I had the same problem a couple years ago with mine. After letting it set for several months, I tried to plug it in again after moving into another house. All of a sudden, it started working again. That was 1 year ago, but just last did it again. I noticed that it does this if it is left on for an extended amount of time (my wife goes to bed at night and leaves it on). I cannot find anything on how to fix it, and no warranty assistance from RCA. I'm purchasing a Sony today, but will hold onto the RCA in case it decides to work again.
