NINTENDO 64 setup

Recommended Posts

Hi guys new here 

just wondering if anyone has any advice they can give me on hooking my Nintendo 64 up to my plasma tv. It’s a Panasonic Viera, model # TH-42PV60A

ive gone through quite a few televisions lately trying to play Mario and having no luck. 

The console is in perfect working order I know that much. Just can’t work out what I’m doing wrong or what I may need. Cheers in advance

Can you post some pictures of both and the cable  you going to use?

I think this could be a case of having the video settings different to the connection method.

 

I know with my old PS2, when I upgraded from Composite Video cables to Component, I had to first change the settings in the setup menu prior to connecting otherwise no picture would display.

As said some pics will help...

...and we want to know what games you've got! Perfect Dark?

 

FWIW you can get yourself a HDMI converter for it if you're really stuck - https://www.ebay.com.au/sch/Cables-Adapters/171814/i.html?_from=R40&_nkw=hdmi+upscale+converter&LH_PrefLoc=2 (maybe cheaper examples locally too) though would agree with @thathifiguy, likely a small setup issue assuming everything's plugged in.

Hi there's a recent FPGA technology that converts composite (N64) to HDMI without adding any lag, it's called a retrotink tink2x http://www.retrotink.com

It's your best option for the 64

      For sale is a Panasonic 65" 3D Plasma TV (model TH-P65VT60A). This TV was the last and highest specified plasma TV released in Australia by Panasonic.

      Item: 1080p Full HD Home Cinema Projector
      Price Range: Up to $1500
      Item Condition: New or Used
      Extra Info:
       
      I am currently on the look out for a brand-name 1080p Full HD home cinema projector in good condition. I’ve been looking at the Epson, Panasonic and Sony range second-hand, but also interested in other good alternatives. LCD or DLP, although I am wary of bad experiences with second hand LCD projectors (e.g. vertical lines) so more recent models if possible. Located in Melbourne.

      I'm new to this and found a few turntables within my price range. Are they any good/which would you recommend?

      I was also wondering which speakers you would recommend for turntable?
      ENERGY POINT 1E vs MORDAUNT SHORT MS-15 BOOKSHELF SPEAKERS 
      (I can get the sanyo and ms speakers for $300 or the SL-B2 and the 1E speakers for $250 in a combo)
      I'm also looking to buy Sherwood RX 2030R Stereo-Surround Amplifier Receiver with Phono function for turntable (https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/adelaide-cbd/stereo-systems/sherwood-stereo-surround-amplifier-receiver-with-phono/1247707184)
      Thoughts?
