"no controllers" message in N64

Hello!

it's been a long time since I haven't use my N64. I tried to play with the console in this days, everything seems to be right: audio, video.. BUT
there's an strange problem with the controllers:

the only game i have is Donkey Kong 64, but every time the game is beginning the controllers are not detected.. so I just can't play, could it be a problema of the game or a problem of the console?

may somebody help me?

sorry for my bad english :)

How to stop the N64 from automatically turning itself off


Well if the console had blanked out on you and the red light is still on getting power. THis has happened to me half way through perfect dark while I was playing it froze and then the screen went black and then it went to the tv screen saying no siginal it means that the expansion pack has died on you then. So i tried a new expansionpack for my 12 year old N64 console at that time and it worked again. It could just be a easy problem then.
5 STARS UIF THIS SOLUTION WAS HELPFUL.

Can you play with five people and five controllers and can the screen go into 5 parts then so 5 people can play gamecube and N64 games too at the same time for multi players?


Yes you can because we have heard of a guy that did that with james bond goldeneye for N64 he made his N64 console have 5 controller ports and had the screen fit into five pieces so that 5 people could play at the same time. OIr you need a four way cross key pad then. Same thing for gamecube and wii too take them apart and add an extra controller port for 5 then and the screen will split into five parts.

Hi we just bought a nintendo 64 and plugged everything the red light comes on but when we insert the game it flickers then the screen turns dark green and nothing. We have plugged and replugged, cleaned...


I say your N64 is obsolete at this point. May I suggest playing N64 games on your PC. A rom is a game that is 'ripped' from a game cartridge or cd of a game console (usually a console generation earlier than the second latest.) An emulator is what you run the rom in. The emulator is what allows you to use your mouse, keyboard, etc. to play the game.
http://coolrom.com/ is a great source for roms. You can get roms for the N64, GBA, GBA, GB, GameCube, Nintendo DS and even some sega games!You search for your game, find it in the list of search results and download the game.

How do you erase memory from the memory pak


  • Plug an N64 controller into the "Player 1" port on the Nintendo 64.
  • 2 Place the N64 Controller Pack into the memory card slot on the Nintendo 64 controller.
  • 3 Insert a Nintendo 64 game into the cartridge slot on the N64.
  • 4 Hold down "Start" on the N64 controller.
  • 5 Turn the Nintendo 64 on via the "Power" switch on the device. After the console loads, the Controller Pack menu will appear on the screen.
  • 6 Release the "Start" button on the N64 controller.
  • 7 Browse through the saves listed, using the N64 controller's directional pad.
  • 8 Highlight the game you want to erase.
  • 9 Select the "Delete" option. The pages that were occupied by the game save will be erased from the Controller Pack.
  • 10 Repeat Steps 7 though 9 until you're finished erasing pages on the Controller Pak. Restart the N64 if you wish to play the game that was inserted into the device, or turn the Nintendo 64 off if you are done using the console.

    N64 red light


    Try blowing out the Game slot on the console, and then blow out the large metal prong on the bottom of the game. Also try waiting a little bit, your nintendo might need to cool down.
    After a long time n64 games fail to start up on most attempts, so keep trying, it will start up eventually.

    N64 will not play on new TV and Stereo Reciever


    maybe it's just the T.V I mean the N64 is like 10+ years old and you're trying to get it to work in a new T.V! I reckon that your best bet is to buy an older T.V to play it with or get an emulator e.g PJ64 on your computer and then you can still play your games

    Can't find the channel for my N64


    Is your cable RCA, S-Video, or Coaxial? If it's coaxial, check and see if the channel is to 3 or 4. If it's RCA or S-Video, check which slot it's plugged into on your TV. Most likely, the cable's dead, as I've had to replace mine a good 4 times.

    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 :)

    Considering how shortprint it was and it's popularity, you best shot is on e-Bay. Most N64 owner's aren't really willing to part with CBFD, so it might be pricey.
