You screwed it up by plugging it into the 64. It is too old to handle that kind of stuff. I reccomend going and getting youself a Xbox 360 slim. They are much more efficient.

SOURCE: Need step by step directions to hook up a 16 bit Sega Genesis

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.

SOURCE: Nintendo 64 game console, TV says no signal,

This usually indicates that you have the video cables connected incorrectly. The T.V. is just telling you that it's not getting any video signal from the console.

Check your connections, and if all looks well, perhaps the consoles video outputs or cable is shot.

Good luck.

My sega cartriges has horezontal lines all but spiderman maximum carnage.when I put the cartrige in the game starts but horrazontel lines come in and I cant play but the spiderman game works fine.


Sounds like the cartridge connector inside your Sega Genesis is dirty. You'll need to clean the connector AND clean all of your cartridges with rubbing alcohol. Cleaning this connector should be no big problem. Make sure your Sega Genesis is unplugged before you try any kind of cleaning or repair.

To clean your cartridges, simply use rubbing alcohol and Q-tips to scrub the connector pins clean. You will notice lots of dirt coming off onto the Q-tips. This will take many Q-tips.

This is important! Once you clean your cartridges, you still need to clean the connector inside your Genesis. Here's how:

First, get a can of compressed air. Blast air into that cartridge connector to remove any loose dust, dirt, or debris. Chances are, you'll still need to clean more.

Second, Use Q-tips to apply rubbing alcohol to one of your clean cartridges. Insert and remove this cartridge repeatedly.

Third, dry off your cartridge with clean q-tips.

Repeat steps two and three over-and-over until your cartridge slot is clean. Remember to give your Genesis time to dry before you plug it back in.

Bonus tip: If the above method doesn't get your connector totally clean, try wrapping a thin piece of cloth around an old credit card. Apply rubbing alcohol to the cloth, and scrub away at the cartridge connector.

Forgive me if this sounds condescending, but it bears repeating. Please make certain to unplug your Genesis before you attempt to clean or repair it. Safety first.

I have an old sega genesis and got new plugs to plug it into my 42'' HDMI Vizio. all the plugs are in and the light is on but the screen stays blank. I have tried blowing on the game and got the...


Did you say HDMI? I don't think there are HDMI plugs for Sega Genesis. You can plug in your Sega via composite video through RCA cables (yellow, red white) or via RF signal through coaxial cable. Check your TV's specs to make sure it can display standard definition content via composite or via RF.

You can double check to make sure your Sega Genesis is working properly by plugging it into an old-fashioned CRT (fat tube) television set.

How can I hook my sega genesis console to my Direct tv box?


Don't plug your Genesis into your satellite box. Plug your Sega into the back of your TV set. Get a Sega Genesis composite video cable. Run that cable from the mini-DIN connector on the back of your Sega to the RCA (yellow, red white) connectors on the back of your TV set. If you don't have any spare RCA connectors on your TV set, try a composite video switch.

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.

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.
