Well it might be that if your tv runs on digital cable like mine then the rf switxch part wont work then so I tried mine on the tvs in the basemant at my Aunt Gails house and the rf switch for N64 works there so you could use the av cables then instead of the rf switch. 12 STARS if this solution is helpful then
cddHEXIf the on and off button isn't budging then it might be that it is broken or is stuck so to fix this problem you would have to take apart the console in order to disamble a N64 console you need a special screw driver to do that. The nintendo factory had made super NES consoles gamecube and N64 consoles with special screws to prevent unliscenced people to fix theese consoles at that time. 6 special screws to remove. Hexogon screws. Or try using WD40 on the on and off button to see if that will work too. 10 STARS IF THIS IDEA WORKS.
- First you need a rather old TV, like maybe before 2002, if you have one. Because on newer TVs N64 graphics are terrible !
- Once you have your TV, check to see if you have two cables with your 64 (if you don't something is missing !). One shaped like a little box on one end and an electrical plug on the other : you hook up the little box to your N64 and plug the device in the nearest power socket. The other cable has a a strange black and rectangular input that hook up in your N64 and 3 sockets that are red, yellow and white. Connect the latter on your TV by finding the same sockets with the same colours !
- Connect your controller to the console (it's the round-ish sockets in front of it)
- insert your game
- THEN turn on your console. Don't turn it on unless everything hooked up !
(if it doesn't work you may want to try the famous turn-off-the-console-blow-into-the-cartridge-put-it-back-and-try-turning-your-N64-again trick !)
Well I am currently having a similar problem with my aqua N64 console and my black N64 console. So it could be the ac adapter that could be the issue because Im having the same problem sort of with my SNES console so I brought a new ac adapter for my SNES and it works. It could be the same issue with my N64 consoles every thing looks fine on the inside so it has to be the ac adapter then. Or it might of had died on you. Video games consoles are funny at this they are fine the day before and they are not working the next day.
Because the 64 is somewhat old I would suggest getting an aerial splitter because the system may not be able to function properly with out it. Try it and see how it turns out. Or, if you don't mind, you could play that game on the computer if you have one. Download Project64 from:
If its got what looks like a cable jack plug, its an RF Cable. As is, if those get kinked up badly enough, the copper inside of them can become damages, which can affect the way it sends the signal to the tv from the N64. Those cables can be picked up from local game stores. my suggestion though, is if you have the connectors, go with the Red,Yellow,White setup, Red and White are the sound cables, and the Yellow is your video. Better sound from it.
