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.
Well maybe the console needs to be cleaned out esspecially if its filled up with dust. Dust causes video game consoles to over heat 10 times faster than their normal heat rate then. I have had this issue before with my N64 console so I cleaned it out and no stalling yet.
Well its the console thats making the burning smell becuase its a power supply failure warning or its over heating for this to happen. I had my N64 console for 14 years and never heard of this before. I has to be the console or the ac adapter then.
The Nintendo 64 is notorious for overheating problems. This is a very common problem. With my N64, I play it while a fan is blowing on it. This usually prevents the problem. Try this method. It should work.
Hope this helps!!
The battery inside the game pak has died, thus, it can no longer hold a save. Buy a special screwdriver for n64 Game Paks. Unscrew the casing, then find the battery inside the Pak. Take it (the battery) to any store that sells watches, then ask for a replacement for that battery. Plug the batery (+ side facing you) in the Pak, then screw it back together.
I have the same problem with my genesis. Most likely it freezes if you make the cartridge move any, which is hard to avoid on these older consoles. Same goes for any cartridge based console i.e. NES,SNES,N64 sega Theres a cheap way to keep the cartridge from moving though, heres what i do; As your inserting the game, wedge something like a quarter, or a small piece of cardboard with the game. It keeps the game from moving, and thus keeping it from freezing. hope this works for you!!
There could be many things making that noise, my fellow N64 Gamer :) It could be a few loose pieces of plastic that have broken off over the years, or it could be the chipset itself, which would be the reason why it's not working. By a special screwdriver off the internet (not more that 10 bucks) and open the cart to see what's making the noise.
As for the freezing up, if the chipset's moving around in there, it cold be freezing, if the chipset isn't moving, you could try cleaning the contacts on the bottom with a solution of alcohol and water.
