Sounds bad
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)

The Sega Genesis 2 Console requires Game Cartridges. The console is only a processor and has no pre-loaded games.

Genesis loads up shows licensed by sega then freezes


The problem doesn't come from your console, but from your game cartridge. I had the same problem, and I've stumbled upon your question while Googling about it.

Recently, I wrote a tutorial about how to solve this problem which affects most old consoles that use game cartridges, such as the NES, the Nintendo 64 and the Genesis.

The tutorial is in French, so here's link to a translation by Google Translate: http://is.gd/52USF
Please ignore grammatical mistakes, as those are the result of the automatic translation. The tutorial is about NES cartridges, but it works with any gaming system that uses cartridges.

I need a power plug for genesis sega model # 1601 thank you


I believe for model 1601 it is a 9v 850ma power Adapter

search those specs online....there are many sites that carry that adapter. Just make sure you get the cord for model 1 (1601).

This website carry's it as I am sure several others do as well.
