Game consoles like the Nintendo 64 are fairly old now and will not always work with us due to its old age. For that reason I thought it would be good to give some tips on getting that old console to work properly. Problem, Game console turns on, but there is no picture? Tips: - Make sure you have placed the game all the way in (On my Nintendo I often have to press down harder to get my game in). - Try another game, the problem might not be the system itself. If another game works try cleaning out the cartridge of the original game, most commonly people will just blow the dirt out of it (Technically you are not supposed to do this, so that is up to you), but you can also buy a Game Cartridge Cleaning Kit if desperate. What I like to do is get a Q Tip and use it lightly on the cartridge. - If the other game did not work double check your channel (Is your TV set up to the right channel for viewing?). Make sure the wires are set up properly and placed all the way in (My wires are old and require some attention to connect just right to my TV.) Check if the console is dusty, try cleaning out any dirt (Carefully). -Last ditch effort try this: Unplug controllers, take out the game, jumper/expac then turn it on for a few second (10 - 15) afterwards turn it off. Add just the jumper/expac and repeat the process (on for a few seconds, turn off) Put game in now and power on for another 10 seconds. Now try to actually play something. - If it is working, but the game is freezing; Try replacing the RAM/Expac, especially if it is not a Nintendo Brand (some other types are more likely to overheat).
