Question about Sega Genesis Console
I have an old sega genesis model#1601. The problem is, it use to paly all the game cartridges then one game could'nt play then two then now non of the games play. The Power is on but can't seem to play the games. I have tried cleaning the console and cartridges but it did not help. Please help.
the contacts for the carts may be worn
get a credit card, cloth and head cleaning fluid.
put the cloth around the card and a few drops of liquid and push in to the slot and clean the contacts.
make sure none are bent out of place.
if cleaning won't help then you may need to open up and look at the contacts for dry joints; a blob of solder may help.
failing that you may need to look on ebay for a replacement console (you won't need the leads so it shouldn't cost more than a tenner including postage)
