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 :)

    oh forgot to mention, make sure the game is clean... ie, clean it alcohol... theres some link to it on youtube "how to clean your n64 game" or something like that.

My n64 doesn't work on ch3


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

My on/off switch on my N64 is stuck. Help.


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.

I dont know how to set it up


- 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 !)

Good luck ! :)

My n64 went through a brown out and now the red light wont come on and it wont turn on


I think that there is something wrong with your ac adapter you might have to get a new one or have it checked and or fixed then. Its easier to by a new N64 console then which is seconded handed.

My n64 wont work


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.

Nintendo 64 - sound not working on new TV


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:

N64 has static and audio noise


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.

Nintendo 64 expansion pak


Barb3: The Jumper Pack (JP) is a bypass for the expansion cartridge. You were supposed to turn off the equipment remove the JP and then use the expansion cartridge. Your N64 Ram it's probably gone for good. Is either replace the RAM, which is hard to find or replace the N64. Sorry for that.... SithPitt
