How about a good, high-res picture of your work? That's usually better than us telling you how to do something you've already done. More often than not, there's a wire bridged with solder on the board.

Or the slot was wired backwards :lol:

hope this helps

EDIT: remember when you pull out the cart slot there is a gap in the pin spacing so remember to skip those pins on the n64 mobo or else the pins will be off set by one, and remember not to wire it backwards. If none of this helps then I think your n64 is fried.

No that is not a problem.
Unless that solder is touching one of the outside holes...
