Turns on, but there's no picture.
I have an old PAL Nintendo 64 that I wanted to play the other day. Unfortunately it wouldn't work. The machine itself turns on as the red light lights up as usual, but I couldn't get any picture on the screen.
I tried different cables including an old SNES cable (that worked last time some years ago) and a GameCube s-video cable.
I have a fairly new TV, but I'm certain I've configured it right. My SNES works just fine on it.
Any help would be appreciated!
- Removing the Expansion Pack (original) and putting it back in.
- To blow on the cartridge and on the machine (not recommended).
- Different games.
- Different AV cables (that work on my SNES).
- Cleaning the connectors on a cartridge with both dry q-tips and with isopropyl alcohol.
When I started the machine I didn't see or hear anything. The screen didn't even flicker. I retried the steps some time later and magically it worked. I've listed all steps as I don't know which step solved my problem.
Thanks for all the help!
Is this a good question?
