My sega genesis turns on and the tv it's hooked up to looks like it's trying really hard to get some sort of picture from the genesis but it just cant quite get it.

Hmmm... see, I had that SAME problem with my dad's old Genesis. So, I went out and got a new video wire for it (Can be found at Slackers if you're in the midwest of America... if you aren't, go on Ebay or Amazon and hunt around!), and a new AC cord. Then it worked just fine.
If that doesn't work, try cleaning the copper part of the game you stick into the system with Q-Tips. Sometimes Windex helps, and then you can use a Q-Tip to get the Windex off, and let it dry for about 20 minutes. And if those don't work, get a pencil with a clean pink eraser at the tip, and rub it in the game. Use a Q-Tip to get off all of the eraser shavings. The eraser breaks the electro-static cling made when the game is being read/played.
Good luck, and I really hope this helps!

How to fix the sound on a sega game gear 2110. everything else is working fine but the the sound is shot.

Hi Jeremy,
This is an easy repair, if you are used to working with a 15 watt solderin iron, and have a little experience with solderin small parts.
The sound board needs new capacitors, it is a common failure. I believe there are 6 of them, and the cost should be under $10.

This repair works well, but the capacitors that are in the display secton can go out too, at a later time. If you get to the oint where you must tilt the display at an angle to view, the caps are probably failing. Again, it is a matter of just replacing the caps.
Here are two videos that detail the repairs.
Good luck!

Common problems with the GG. I would suggest that you seek the services of someone experienced with soldering small electronic parts. The repair is straightforward, but if you have never soldered, or worked on curcuit boards, I would not attempt it.

I have repaired 3 before with good results. To save me from repeating a reply, please see my other post here:

As capacitors age, they dry out. When they dry out, the fail.
The youtube videos will show you what you are up against. I'll bet I could make some money fixing all these units that are her eon FixYa :)

Good luck.
