Video but no sound on sega megadrive 2


Nothing wrong with the tv or the cartages or even how you hooked it up

its the wire that connects the tv to the console, these some/a waire broken on the inside.

gotta get another one, or find the brake and twist it around till they meat then put some duck tape or something around it to keep it in place

Ive got a black sega mega drive but cant seem to locate a channel.. am i doing something wrong with the wires


you need to have an old-ish tv...and you need to choose one channel,any one and tune it in...you need to keep going untill you either have a black screen or the game youve inserted..

TURN YOUR MEGADRIVE ON WHILE TUNING

if youve done that and you still dont have it it might be the wire

Just got a Sega Mega drive, connected to my plasma


Most old systems such as Mega Drive will come with an RF adaptor, which plugs into the back of the console and has a coaxial tip on the other end, to connect to the tv.

When you connect the coaxial end to the tv, you connect it to the round coax plug which is where you used to plug in your old cable tv hookup. It also might say Ant. or Antenna.

Turn on your megadrive and use your TVs input selector to change to either "antenna" or "tv" or "cable" input, or until you hit the input which displays your megadrive's signal.

Tip: use your TV's view options to change the input to a 4:3 or "not stretched" aspect ratio so that your old Fullscreen video games will not be stretched out wide on your new widescreen HDTV.

Good Luck!

Sega megadrive 2 that wont load


Just keep fiddling with it. I kept messing with the video cable, where it plugs into the back of the console. I got the "Licensed by Sega, etc." message for a few seconds before it went black again, turned it off, pulled out the cartridge then slammed it back in. Now all of the few carts I own are working with the console.

I just aquired a sega megadrive 2 with all leads but no instructions. can you tell me how to set it up please? Michael


First plug the power plug into the mega drive and turn it on (there should be a red light showing that the megadrive is on)

Plug RF lead into the back of the mega drive and TV and make sure the switch is set at the megadrive side and not the ariel side, if you have a switch.

Now turn off mega drive, put a game into the slot and and then turn the console on.

Select a channel on your TV and tune it into the mega drive.

This should work.

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

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.
