Sounds like the soldering has come loose a bit over the years this tends to happen if you want there is two options open it up and fix the soldering issue or send it in for repair.

I have a shop and it would be $15 plus return shipping costs to fix the unit.

The down button on my Sega Master System controllers won't work when they are plugged into the first controller port (Fine on the second). I have already taken apart the system and tried to clean up...


Hey there.
In your case, there is only one real solution: get another controller. You will save both time and money, and you will know that you'll have a working controller. Chances are you will not ever be able to fix that problem, even with soldering.
You could start by browsing ebay:

If you really want to try to spend some time repairing it, that video could help you understand the controller a lot more:

I have just found my old sega master system and would like 2 play it on my plasma tv, however i have found it difficult 2 install. any hits would b helpful


You need to hook it up to one of the inputs and remeber the input being used so you can change your plasma tv to it so when you turn on your sega master system the screen will show up.
Here is a video from youtube that shows you exactly how to do it. Sega Master System plasma hookup.

Where could I find a replacement controller port for my Sega Master System, one of the pins is broken, and I would prefer to replace it without cannibalising any of my other consoles.


The best place to look for things like this is eBay. Just search for As-Is Sega Master System on eBay, and see what comes up ( I also just searched for sega master system, and found some cheap consoles that were in working order). Also, another option you might try is see if there were any "controller extensions" made for it. That might give you something to cannibalize to make your new port. Hope this has helped!

I need help setting up my Sega Master System, I am unable to attatch it to the tv.


Hi, Sega master system 2 are connected to your TV via an RF cable. One end is RCA which connects to your console the other end is Pal which connects to you TV's antenna inlet if your using the sega RF switch then the RF switch connects to your antenna inlet on your TV and you should have a RCA to RCA cable which connects the console to the switch. Please note these cables and power adaptors can in some cases be faulty. These console are manually tune to VHF-1 frequency so make sure your TV has this frequency. some do tune to UHF but most tune to VHF-1 if you need parts or want your console modified to connect to a modern TV via AV inlets or S-video visit www.gameoz.com.au they stock a huge range.

BOX THINGY


the box is a RF switching box
the lead you require is a phono to ariel lead (megadrive, master system or any old computer will do)
or if you get an old video lead and cut of one end and wire a phono plug to it it will also work.
or you try ebay
http://shop.ebay.co.uk/items/_W0QQ_dmptZUKQ5fVideoGamesQ5fVideoGameAccessoriesQ5fVideoGameAccessoriesQ5fJN?_nkw=sega+rf++Master+System++&_sacat=0&_fromfsb=&_trksid=m270.l1313&_odkw=sega+rf&_osacat=0

a basic lead for £2.50
replacments upto £10
both work

Controller port


nope thats a good thing and the only thing would be that they where all connected and not wiggling around in the port. if you give them a jiggle and they dont move then further inspection would be required.

Directional Pad


honestly sounds like its the controller port either have to open it up and make sure everything is connect correctly around it or even blow some air into the ports to blow anything that might be blocking they come loose now and again over the years of use.


have you tryed it on the controller port 2 yet? if not try that and see if it works on that one.

I am trying to locate a auto rf switch box for my sega master system 2


Looks as if Nesfixxa400 has never seen athe back of a Mastersystem 2, there is only an rf lead port!
so you are looking for a RF splitter
you can seach for the following
master system rf switch box
Megadrive 1 rf lead with switch box
I also remeber at a 99p shop seeing a 3 way TV switching box
search for MK-3088 on ebay (below) they are compatable
