    Well, I got the same problem only mine is a Gameshark 2.2. It does display an 8.0 on the LED Display, I tried to blow warn air into it but it still does not work.

Mine does that sometimes.I got it on Ebay for just a few dollars. I think it does that when there isn't a good connection between the game/gameshark/N64. I always use the "hot breath" method - breathe on the slots of both the gameshark and game, as if you were trying to warm up your hands in wintertime, or fog up a mirror. It might take a couple of tries, but it usually works.
If that fails, try cleaning the slots of the gameshark and game with a Q-tip - there can be a lot of corrosion on the copper connections - but don't use any kind of cleaning agent, just rub at it. The Q-tip will probably end up being gray or black. Then try it again.
Good luck!

I put my gameshark on my nintendo 64 and the game on it but on the gameshark pro its write 8 and the tv screen is black and after 30 minutes its still like that P.S. sorry for my english

I know mine didn't work,so i took it to a pro. He cleaned i thoroughly and it worked after that.He said 6 out of 10 of them are dead , but luckily mine just had really dirty contacts, top and bottom.So I'd recommend taking it to a pro, but first try different games with it ,sometimes it just gets stuck on a keycode.

Gameshark 3.2 trouble

If this is the cartridge type.. try cleaning the part where you insert it into the system, with a cue tip and rubbing alcohol. It's possible that it may have gunk in it. Let it dry before you put in the game.

This may help
