Hey
I recently purchased an N64 to be able to reminisce with a few buddies.

I’m really struggling to get it to work with my current LG tv and can’t aeem to crack it. I’m sure it’s simple and one of you can hopefully help.

I have the setup below at the back of my tv. I have even purchased an adapter to make it work. Maybe it’s as simple as a setting on my tv I’m not doing right?

Any advice appreciated. Thank you

You see the half green, half yellow video port on the back of your TV? On your AV cable, connect the yellow video cable to it. Then connect your white and red audio cables to the last two white and red ports. Now on your TV, set your input to AV/composite/component and you're on your way. Enjoy

Thanks so much MarioLover92. Genuinely appreciate your support with the reply.

Unfortunately when I do that it doesn’t pick up a signal

Again, any advice would really be appreciated. Thanks again!

Try the component input feed and flip the 64 on and of to see if that’s it. Are the any inputs on the sides of the tv?

Try putting the white and red plugs into the white and red sockets all the way on the right. Then try putting the yellow plug in either the green or blue socket.

Or maybe try cleaning the cartridges?

@Pgtipz try cleaning the cartridge then push it in and power. Keep repeating.

First, the basics. Be sure your cables are good and that the N64 gets power. I've heard some say their AV cables went bad. I've had AC adapters from other systems give me trouble. Also, some TVs may have options like shared inputs that can be changed in the menus.

I know very little about N64, but it may output at a resolution the TV doesn't like. Many TVs don't take 240p directly. Your converter box might not either. There seem to be plenty of google suggestions and pages addressing N64 on LG TVs. You may just get your answer quickly if you google search for N64 and your TV model number, if you haven't already done that.

Hi all
Firstly thank you all so much for taking the time to reply with your suggestions. You’ve been so helpful.

In the end, the blow on cartridge and switch on and off route did the trick. So simple, yet to effective.

Thanks again everyone. Happy gaming
