Why won't my N64 console load on my new TV?

Recommended Posts

Hi there!

I was unpacking some boxes in my new home and found two N64 consoles, I tried plugging them in and switching them on but it keeps showing a blank screen on my TV. I thought this was to do with my console not having an expansion pack or a HDMI converter so I have ordered an expansion pack and a HDMI converter.

 

I have both a scart plug and AV cables, I've tried blowing on the cartridge and the cartridge holder in the console but nothing works.

 

I asked for advice from Yahoo Answers but people kept trolling me.

If you have the space and intend to do a bit of retro gaming now and then, I highly recommend an old CRT telly, always works.

 

Can usually be had for pennies on Gumtree and Facebook.

Yeah, @Diddums is spot on as most new TVs can't handle the frequency but there are still new ones out there that have the right inputs to support it.

 

Definitely look into what @Plumbers Crack said too. I noticed my input names don't exactly tally up with what I expected.
