How do I set up a sega genesis?

I think I have all the parts, but I am not sure how to get it on the TV. I have it on channel three but it's not coming in and there is no picture or sound.

Here we go
This is a step by step with testing set up for the sega mega drive

first plug the power plug into the mega drive and turn it on (there should be a red LED light)

plug RF lead into the back of the TV and make sure the switch is set at the megadrive side and not the ariel side, if you have a switch. (or you can buy scarts from www.retro-cache.com)

Now turn off mega drive, put a game into the slot and and then turn the console on

Select a channel on your TV and re-tune it into the mega drive. (on some TV's the tuneing is around the C36 area if that is any help)

If you tune into a blank screen than turn the mega drive off, remove the game, clean it and replace the game and try again.

I have an old sega genesis and got new plugs to plug it into my 42'' HDMI Vizio. all the plugs are in and the light is on but the screen stays blank. I have tried blowing on the game and got the...


Did you say HDMI? I don't think there are HDMI plugs for Sega Genesis. You can plug in your Sega via composite video through RCA cables (yellow, red white) or via RF signal through coaxial cable. Check your TV's specs to make sure it can display standard definition content via composite or via RF.

You can double check to make sure your Sega Genesis is working properly by plugging it into an old-fashioned CRT (fat tube) television set.

How can I hook my sega genesis console to my Direct tv box?


Don't plug your Genesis into your satellite box. Plug your Sega into the back of your TV set. Get a Sega Genesis composite video cable. Run that cable from the mini-DIN connector on the back of your Sega to the RCA (yellow, red white) connectors on the back of your TV set. If you don't have any spare RCA connectors on your TV set, try a composite video switch.

Wont come on


Man I haven't seen an actual Sega Genesis console in years. Anyways...
1) Make sure that everything is plugged into your system properly. 2) Check you make sure your TV is on the right channel 3) Check to make sure the fan is at least powering up when you turn on the Genesis. If it is then the Genesis is working. 4) Plug something else into the TV to make sure it works.
Remember, HDTVs and LCDs and this whole Al Gore's Gone Green thing wasn't around when they made the Sega Genesis, so conventional means to playing a Sega aren't your best option. Don't plug it into the wall either, make sure you are plugging it into a surge protector.
Hope this helps.

When i plug in my sega genesis the light is on but no video do you know whats wrong with it?


Double check to see if your RFU or A/C Adapters are properly connected. Also, if it is an RFU adapter, make sure the Channel on your TV matches the Channel on the adapter.

How to hook sega genesis up to a flat screen tv


You need to hook up the cable coming in from the outside to one end of the Sega RF cable and hook the male end of the RF connector from the Sega into the cable input on the TV.On the back of the game console there is a channel selector switch.It is either CH3 or CH4 which is what your TV needs to be on when you turn on the console.If one looks bad try switching the channel selector on Sega and on the TV.
Good luck and game on!

Need step by step directions to hook up a 16 bit Sega Genesis


There should be two plugs on the back of the sega. One for the power cord, and one for the audio/video cord. The audio/video cord is a coax cord with a little box in line. Hook your cable or antenna cable into the jack on the box and hook the end of the cable from the sega into your tv. There will be a switch on the sega or on the box somewhere that designates channel three or four, this is what channel your tv will need to be on to use the sega.

No sound on Sega with lcd tv


If you are using the RCA 8 or 9 pin DIN connection, make sure one of the pins is not bent in or missing. If you are using the RF adapter, be sure that the channel selection switch is completely flipped to either channel 3 or 4.
