N64 No Signal HDTV Help

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello overclock forum members, I recently found my old N64 hiding in a cabinet. I grabbed the N64 and brought it to my HDTV which is an Olevia LCD HDTV, then I plugged the AV wires into the composite inputs (yellow, red, and white) and placed in DK64. After finishing doing all of that, I went to the right TV source which were the plugs went (AV1 a.k.a Composite 1) and I turned on the N64, the red light showed in front of it (meaning it's turned on, obviously), but when I looked at the tv, it had a blue screen and the big fat words 'No Signal.' After seeing that, I turned off the console and I double checked everything to see if it was plugged in the right place and gave it a good push, as well as the cartridge. Then when I turned on the console again, it did the same thing the first time. So then I turned off the console and pulled the cartridge out, blew into it, placed it back in and turned on the console to witness the same thing again. Then I tried it again with a different game named "Cruis'n World" and still says No Signal. So I tried a different method like replace N64 av cables with Gamecube av cables and the same thing happened. I really want to play on the N64 but this problem keeps bugging me and I DO need help. If anything works I'll select as the best answer. Thank you for your time. If you need, I'll include a photo or photos for a better understanding of this problem I have.

Have you tried a different device from the same inputs on the TV? I'd test that out to rule out the TV. Then I'd try the n64 on a different TV to check the n64

Yeah, and play with a mouse and keyboard instead of using the excellent N64 controller. What a joy!

+ 1. If that fails try cleaning the contacts on the console where the cart goes in. And all other ports etc.

I will give you one tip. Never blow into your carts.
