So, I bought an N64 and plugged all the plugs in as needed. Then, after turning on the system the TV produced no video of the game I was going to play. I have tried with several games and have used alcohol on the cartridges which I read can make cartridges work. Please give me suggestions on how to make the system work. Everything was new and the n64 was refurbished but there is no rumble pack which I dont believe affects the system.

Thank you for your help.

-Is your TV an old TV? If so turn it to Channel 3/4. Use rubbing alcohol on the N64 cartridge connector.

Who are you?

The cartridge connecter? The inside of the n64 correct? The TV's I have work with other systems including Xbox 360, PS2, and the Wii. I dont believe the TV is a problem.

Clean the N64 connector cartridge slot. And some old consoles wont work on newer TVs.

Is there a way you can hook it up to another TV say like at a friends house or another TV in your house? That would eliminate the TV as the problem. Also as long as you use the right hook ups to connect to your TV, old consoles will work on newer TVs. They just wont look as good and you will suffer from lag but others you should be getting something.
