I decided to get my N64 out and play it. It seems to power on just fine, but nothing came on the tv and nothing came through the audio connection, either. I didn't see any breaks in the wires, so I don't know what's going on. It's probably been about 10 years since I've played it and it worked fine the last time I tried it. I tried two games and nothing showed up. I remembered that the N64's cables were the exact same as the Gamecube, so I dug out my old broken Gamecube and got the av cables. Same issue. No video or sound. I started by plugging it into the front av port on my vcr, in the video connector and the put the audio connector into my surround sound. Like I said, there was no video from the vcr and no audio on my surround sound with either the gamecube cable and the original N64 cable. Next, I tried putting the video into the video plug on my tv, and still no video. When I turn the N64 on, the little red light on the front comes on. Any ideas ? Should I just get a whole new N64 ? Or would a new set of cables help ?
