Not working right

So I'm trying to play my N64 right, but none of the games work.

Everytime I put in a game it plays for about 30 seconds and then resets. My reset button isn't down, my power button isn't broken, and my system hasn't been abused in any way, shape, or form. My brother suggested I pick the cartridge up a bit but it only makes my games graphically glitched. I've never been the kind to smash the cartridges into the console, so I don't think it'd be from abuse.

Any help on how to fix this would be greatly appreciated

You may need to give it a nice cleaning. Inside the carts, and then the contacts on the system itself. Generally when a system flashes on an off (though usually much quicker than 30 seconds) it has to do with too much dust.

I'm guessing that since it's happening with every game that it's probably the system itself that needs to be cleaned.


If everything is in good shape, including the wires and all, there's really no other reason it should be not working.

So should I take it apart or just the classic windex on a q-tip to the cartridge thinger?

I never recommend taking apart a system if you're inexperienced at it.

I'm also not sure Windex is the best cleaning material there. Whatever you would like to do there though.
