You don't need that lead to use on the tv, if you are having trouble with that lead and have a video lead, why not try the video lead. I don't have that connection on mine, on mine I just have the arial connection coming from the little box, but if i remember correctly, the little box was just to switch from gameplay to tv mode.

If I was you I would just use an ordinary video lead. Or if the male/female connections are not correct on your video lead for your console then buy a new lead, they are really cheap and can even be picked up in pound shops. You don't need the actual sega lead to play, just a lead that fits into the back of the console and then into arial slot on you tv.

If I remember correctly the master system only has one lead that looks a bit like an antenna connection, one goes into the back of the console and the other goes into the antenna input on the tv.

Then you need to plug the console in to mains outlet turn it on and tune in your tv to pick it up. I normally plug it into the antenna outlet and switch my channel on to the same channel that picks up the vcr, and it works

    the rf out connection is for a male connector. I am going to take you to a link so you can see the lead I am talking about

    do you have a lead like this on the link?

    no worries, as I said before these leads are really really cheap and can be picked up almost anywhere where they sell electrical equipment. I normally just cheap out and go to pound shops for these sorts of leads. If you found my advise useful would you please rate my solution :) thanx

I have just found my old sega master system and would like 2 play it on my plasma tv, however i have found it difficult 2 install. any hits would b helpful


You need to hook it up to one of the inputs and remeber the input being used so you can change your plasma tv to it so when you turn on your sega master system the screen will show up.
Here is a video from youtube that shows you exactly how to do it. Sega Master System plasma hookup.

My ps3 sometimes loads my games and sometimes it dosent... i have the 40g system, its been fine but all of a sudden ive been having this problem...since it plays my discs sometimes im confused at what it...


You're going to need a new Laser eye for the system.  Here is a link where you can purchase the part from.  http://www.thegamersfix.com/product.php?productid=16141&cat=0&bestseller=Y  Opening the system is simple enough you're going to need a T10 bit, and a phillips screw driver then you just remove the Blu-Ray drive, you're going to need to remove the 3 black screws, and 2 silver screws from the bottom and the grey case will come right off.  After that on the top of the drive there's going to be 5 black screws set in a little deep and the drive is open after that.  All in All I'd say it's a pretty simple repair to do by yourself.  You shouldn't have any issues.

Wii is 2 years old just got new tv set wii up and wii has no colour/sound. Colour is grainy black and white and sound only comes out of the wii remote.


please check your cables and make sure that they are on the right ports. simple solution. nothing wrong with your wii. New Tv can be a little confusing. remember just keep your wii on and test the ports till you get the right ones. If other devices are working such as dvd player then you need to replace the cables

Want to know how to play with my nintendogs game


Yes, the games do come with instruction books, but it's been years since I've had that game. I do remember most things are done using the touch screen. (Feeding, washing, setting your walking course) Though you do use the mic to teach and command tricks.

No picture no sound


If you are using HDMI sometimes an improper shutdown will cause the HDMI "Handshake" to get confused.Try going to the Crossbar (Menu) on the PS3 2nd coluom from the left and down to Display Settings. Choose the appropiate output settings and use AUTOMATIC whenever possible. After that Set your Audio again use AUTO. Never plug in HDMI cables when Power is on it can and will short out that Input!! Good Luck!

BOX THINGY


the box is a RF switching box
the lead you require is a phono to ariel lead (megadrive, master system or any old computer will do)
or if you get an old video lead and cut of one end and wire a phono plug to it it will also work.
or you try ebay
http://shop.ebay.co.uk/items/_W0QQ_dmptZUKQ5fVideoGamesQ5fVideoGameAccessoriesQ5fVideoGameAccessoriesQ5fJN?_nkw=sega+rf++Master+System++&_sacat=0&_fromfsb=&_trksid=m270.l1313&_odkw=sega+rf&_osacat=0

a basic lead for £2.50
replacments upto £10
both work

Sega Master System Controller Port


sounds like the soldering has come loose a bit over the years this tends to happen if you want there is two options open it up and fix the soldering issue or send it in for repair.

I have a shop and it would be $15 plus return shipping costs to fix the unit.
