  5. Plug the RF Modulator into the Multi Out connector on the back of the N64
  6. Connect thin wire of the RF Switch (labeled Control Deck) to the RF Modulator (labeled RF Out).
  7. Set 3/4 switch of the RF Modulator to match the 3/4 channel of the VCR. Note on Sharp TV/VCR Combo

After system is connected to the VCR:

  1. Insert Game Pak fully into the Control Deck.
  2. Plug controller(s) into the front of the Control Deck. Use the left most port for player one.
  3. Plug AC Adapter into the back of the Control Deck (fits only one way). Plug the other end into a wall outlet.
  4. Slide the Power Switch on (toward Game Pak) and check for a Power Light on front center of the system.
  5. The game image should now be displayed on the TV screen. You're ready to play!
