Re: tuning in takes ages whilst warms up
IF your TV is not one of the real old ones, you have a problem with the automatic tuning system.
Some component in this circuit most likely a capacitor or coil is changing its electrical properties due to temperature which in turn causes the set to be off frequency until it warms up.
A capacitor (condenser) can do this quite often.

Unplug from power TOTALLY and leave for 5 minutes. Repower unit and with remote press Mode button and then select Auto Retune and allow TV to reselect all channels again. This will take a while and when it is completed the TV will let you know by tuning itself to the last tuned channel. You should then be able to choose all the channels with the remote. Good luck.
You now need to find a channel on your TV that ins't used for anything else (eg an old vhs player or non-digital tv) then whilst on that channel you need to go into your TV's menu, there is often a button both on the remote and TV itself for this. This is where you turn on your N64 if you haven't already. You then will need to go onto automatic tuning (or if you prefer, manual tuning, in the programme section (if you dont have a programme section, just srcoll through each section till you find automatic tuning) your TV should then start to search for channels, after a little while of searching it should find the N64's frequency it may be a terrible picture that is mostly fuzz you can either carry on the tuning to see if it'll find it better or just head straight to fine tuning (if you decied to keep going you can still fine tune for the best picture quality possible and also if the TV doesn't find it just follow the previous steps till it locates the N64 again) once fine tuned you will need to store this new channel and then you can go ahead and enjoy countless hours of fun on the worlds best gaming console. (If the automatic tuning doesn't find the N64 at all try manual tuning). If you have any other issue with the console itself just drop me an e-mail at [email protected] Hope I was a help.
Select Cn 9 and press manual search whilst you are playing a video. Kepp searching until the video playing appears on your screen then press store. I take it you have the RF link lead between the Video RF out and the TV aerial Socket otherwise it won't work.
If you haven't had the Transmission filter replaced lately i would start there. If you filter is clogged and it is cold the fluid gets thicker making it hard to circulate through transmission When the car warms it heats the fluid enough to circulate through the clogged filter some what and then give's you the reverse but not totally. It can be done on your own with a set of ramps. You have to drain the tranny fluid then take out the bolts for the tranny filter housing . Replace the filter then fill the franny back with new fluid. If that doesn't work then you have either Band slip-age and need a tranny tune up or you have deeper issues. But it is always a good point to start with the filter when you have problems of that nature. If you have never had a tranny tune up then maybe you should take it to a certified transmission mechanic to have it tuned just for general purpose that way they will also diagnose the problem. One word to the wise. Take it somewhere were you trust them because if not you may be told that you need a new tranny and you really won't.
Fixed mine! Take off the monitor from the dash. Take the cover off the monitor. There are four seperate white plastic turn dials available inside the case. Each of these have seperate controls the ones on the top are for brightness and focus while the ones on the bottom of the casing are for vertical and horizontal hold fine tuning, use a screwdriver to adjust. Save you money and do this yourself it's easy as pie.
Offhand, not yet but could be after test/diagnosis. Initially, you must first determine for the presence/absence of the variable 33VDC tuning voltage. This voltage varies depending on what channel is tuned into thereby setting the VCO (voltage controlled oscillator). In some instances, it could be a faulty/leaked capacitor in the 33V supply or even a zener diode. Faulty capacitors are easily identified by bulging top (normally flat),
blistered/split casing, brownish paper within the immediate
surrounding, rubber bottom partially out and/or powdery residue on one
of the pins. The diode is tested like any semiconductor, forward and reverse bias.
