The Stuff of DreamsThe Stuff of Dreams

Posted under Nintendo64, RIP

Today is a sad day for me. My Launch-Day N64, which was literally bought for me on the day it launched, has finally met it's end. The shelf it was on collapsed for whatever reason, and I tried to power it on, to no avail.

It's not just the fact that it was a Launch-Day Console that upsets me, but the fact that it had a lot of sentimental value. It held tons of great memories for me, and it feels like a part of my childhood has been ripped away from me. Even when I replace it, it just won't feel the same playing a different one.

Some of my fonder memories include the day I upgraded from RF Video to Composite Video. The picture was clear, with absolutely no static, and at the time, it was the prettiest thing I'd ever seen in a game. Diddy Kong Racing was the game I was playing when I made the upgrade. The newly found bright colors nearly blinded me! Another fond memory is seeing the huge Star Fox 64 Box for the first time.

This event has seriously upset me, and as I don't have a steady job right now, I have no idea how I'm going to replace it. And I just upgraded my Everdrive 64 OS too!

Rest In Peace, My Launch-Day Nintendo 64. Your legend will never die!

Surely it's got to be something simple to fix? Sad
@mumboking: It likely is.

And his name is Redd, not Shirley.
Yea, I would take it to a shop and tell them what happened. They likely have heard similar stories and will have an idea of what caused the issue. Fortunately, it won't affect your save files or anything.
I agree, you can likely get it fixed with a good repair shop for short money.  I would give it a shot since it is sentimental to you.
Oh, man.  Hold on.  You can't hear this but I'm playing the funeral scene in Star Trek 2 when Scotty is playing the bagpipes.

Truly sad.  But maybe you can get it repaired, like the others said.  Or even get another and gut it.  A little morbid, but the end result is positive.
