Which version of n64 do I have
for Example, this is Version 04.
Nice so I have a version 1
Anybody have an alternative video out solder point for this motherboard revision ?
https://bitbuilt.net/forums/index.php?forums/nintendo-64.99/ There's a whole guide section for this
I’ve seen that section, but on my motherboard CPU 01 I don’t get video out, based on that pinout shown thanks for the help.
If you have a multimeter handy, you could check the IC legs to find the AVE yourself. Alternatively you could DM Downing. He's trimmed more N64s than anyone else I can remember, he'd know.
Here's a pinout the helped me:
Hope it's any help.
Thank you both for the help,
Also is the pms from bitbuilt required after the max trim is done?
Well i see no reason why choose 7.4v pack over a parallel 3.7v, anyways.
It's not required, Gman's PMS provides everything needed though, other than the power, it provides also battery indicator which is reeeaaally nice. However you can use anything as long as you can supply 5v and 3.3v to the respective pins.
Ah I see man thanks so much for all this help and info
Where do I supply the 5v to because the guide only says to supply 3.3v?
Before connecting the 5v, make sure the voltage regulator is not connected, desolder it or just cut the pins out.
1 more question after trim how do I go about powering the n64, where can I solder a on/off switch or reset button?
If you go with the n64pms by gman, there's a button for the on/off switch.
Otherwise, use a 6 pin ON/OFF switch, line for the 3.3v the other for the 5v.
I used the n64pms so i didn't deal with that but that's how i'd do it since it'll be permanently ON when you connect the power to those pins.
