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.

    Strangely enough I also have the same problem now as I can not find my power adapter for my modle 1601 genesis. So i will have to check the website I mentioned in the previous post here and order one for myself.

    and to note my Genesis Model 1601 says what power cord to use for it on the bottom of the console. Mine states to use model model 1602 adapter....9v 1.2 Amp so I guess it varies from model to model so check your specs on the bottom of your genesis should say there what you need to use.

    Assistance not needed, just best way to reply and state another option

We just purchased a Sega Genesis 16 bit sysyem...Model 1601. We do not have hook-up instructions. Would you be able to help us?

Wow, that is a pretty vintage little game system you got there, but sure I can do the best I can blindfolded.
you should have gotten a A/V cable that ether has a RED/WHITE/YELLOW or a RF Co axe end.
If you got a A/V what you do is hook that to you TV where it says input.
If you got a RF coax you would need to hook that into the round cylinder input with a hole in the middle.
If its AV the tv would need to be put on input. If its the other the tv would need to be on channel 3.
Whatever the case may be please update me if you have any other questions.
Kind regards

Man I haven't seen an actual Sega Genesis console in years. Anyways...
1) Make sure that everything is plugged into your system properly. 2) Check you make sure your TV is on the right channel 3) Check to make sure the fan is at least powering up when you turn on the Genesis. If it is then the Genesis is working. 4) Plug something else into the TV to make sure it works.
Remember, HDTVs and LCDs and this whole Al Gore's Gone Green thing wasn't around when they made the Sega Genesis, so conventional means to playing a Sega aren't your best option. Don't plug it into the wall either, make sure you are plugging it into a surge protector.
Hope this helps.

How do i install a sega genesis 16 bit to my tv and what kind of cords do i need

Sega genesis has a proprietary plug which goes to a standard RCA Style cable. They go for about $9 on eBay.

Or you can get one from Amazon here.

Sega Genesis not displaying correctly

mine did the same thing. check the video cable, make sure it's in good condition and try to repair RF switch as best as you can.

Can't seem to play the games

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)

I have a sega genesis. i hae no look how to hook it up. please help me.

well a sega genesis there are 3 different models all either using RF adaptors or AV cables

if RF adaptor please follow this

plug the RF adaptor into the back of your tv the coaxal cable for your tv service ushally runs through this, and plug it into the the back and you can also plug the service into the RF adaptor for the sega genesis. plug the power in and make sure you are on the correct channel (3or4)

If you are using AV cables please advise and I will post the following for that.

Sega genesis

don't panic
sometimes the LED goes on the Megadrive
so try to tune it in anyway. (clean a game and put it in)
also sometimes you can get a "Dry joint" at the power port at the back of the megadrive.
this is fixed by unscrewing the megadrive and a little solder on the each of the 3 joints.
