Question about Sega Genesis Console
I bought one off eBay a few days ago and it came in the mail yesterday. Everything works fine except for the sound, which is awful. I made sure it wasn't just one game either, it does it with every game I try. The sound is very scratchy, and sometimes just goes quiet for a few seconds depending on the situation. It's hooked up to the TV with the RF switch that came with it (says SG RF UNIT on it and states that it is for the Genesis), and I'm also using the AC adapter that came with it. If anyone is wondering, the video quality is perfectly fine, it's just the audio that has problems.
Well it could be that the av cables or the rf switches which ones you are using might be having problems so try a new av cable or rf swtich to see if it makes a difference. If still the aduio is not work there might be an internal issue with the console that should setup a red warning flag like the sound part inside of the console is broken then.

The problem is most likely not the console. The first thing you should try is cleaning the contacts on your games. Most of the games have tamper proof fasteners so unless you have the right tools you won't be able to open them. You can take a q-tip with a little alcohol (damp not wet) and clean both sides of the circuit board on the cartridge until the q-tip comes out clean. Let it dry before sticking it into the console. If you do this to a couple of games with no luck try taking an emery board (for fingernails) and gently inserting it into the connector in the console a few times all along the length of it. Make sure to only push it straight in and pull it straight out. If you try pushing it side to side while it is in there you could damage the connector.

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.
