Blinking Red Light on N64? HELP

Post by SonyQrio » Fri Sep 17, 2010 6:41 pm

When I power up my N64, the red light starts to blink. I'm not sure what this means, DID I BREAK MY MOTHERBOARD! :O I don't have my game cartridge soldered on yet, so maybe that's it.

For future reference, this should be in the N64 section, just to keep things organized.

What have you done to the N64?
And yes, you need the cartslot connected.

Also, are you powering it off batteries/regulator? if you are, listen closely to the regulator for a ['clicking' noise.
