Nintendo 64 won't work after I put in the expansion pack

I just got an expansion pack for my Nintendo 64 for the first time.  I put in the pack.  Now all I get is a blank screen.  It no longer works.

I took out the expansion pack and it still doesn't work.  Any help for it?

Have you tried cleaning the game.which expansion pack? have you added a red one? It will not work without any expansion pack at all. try cleaning the contacts of the expansion pack and the games, with alcohol and water mixed 1 to 1.

My Nintendo 64 when I was in the middle of a game it froze and the screen went all black and then it went to the tv screen saying no signal then.


Well one time I had this problem with my Nintendo 64 console when I was in the middle of playing perfect dark the screen had froze went black and then it went to saying no signal on the tv screen. The console did not over heat to cause this problem. I thought that it had died on me but I had tried a new expansion pack and it was fine after that. SOmetimes the expansion packs can blank out in the middle of a game play they can die without a warning then. Or it can say expansion pack needed or it will give the white flash that it is turning on but nothing happens after that then.

How to play Donkey Kong 64 without Expansion pack


Donkey Kong 64 was one of only three Nintendo 64 games to require the Expansion Pak (the others being The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask and Perfect Dark), which provides 4 MB more RAM for enhanced graphics and more expansive environments, as well as to fix a game-breaking bug.We don't think that you can play this game with no expansion pack. I have tried to play perfect dark with no expansion pack and it was not all there then.

What does an expansion pack for the n64 do? what is its purpose? and are they interchangeable?


I will refer you to a page on Wikipedia that explains it -- but the simple explanation is that the Nintendo 64 Expansion Pack increases the RAM on the N64 from 4MB to 8MB. There were a few games with improved graphics and game play that REQUIRED the expansion pack.

Yes you can remove the Expansion Pak from one N64 and put it into another. However, your N64 will NOT work without either the Expansion Pak or the Jumper Pak in that slot. The original memory card that came in there was called the Jumper Pak which was 4MB. The Expansion Pak was 8MB.

Blank screen when I turn on my N64


The blank screen is usually caused by a faulty connection.

If you are sure all of your cables and the expansion pack are installed correctly, try removing the pack and blowing on both the expansion bay and the expansion itself to knock any loose dust out.

If that doesn't help, check the expansion pack and then the the bay for damaged or bent pins. Check the game cart as well.

If everything appears undamaged, you may have a broken/defective expansion. See if you can get your money back and then try to find another one from a trustworthy retailer or friend.

Nintendo 64 console does not work


try putting the old expansion pack back in and see if it works, make sure you are putting the expansion pack in the right way and make sure there is no dust or dirt in the expansion port.
