Question about Sega Genesis Console

Power comes on, but no picture!

I plugged the Genesis in perfectly fine, and the power comes on when you press the button, but no picture comes up. I've cleaned the games, but I still have the same problem.
The Genesis hasn't been dropped, exposed to water, or exposed to extreme temperatures.
The last time I had it hooked up, the picture would go out and the sound would be there, and if I pressed on the Sega logo, the picture would sometimes come on, but if I let go, it would go away. Now, there is no sound or picture.

Sounds to me like your going to need to open it up and have a look see if there is any dry joints this is where solder joints dry up and lose contact with the main boards inside this happens to alot of older things ie like the megadrive or an old tv,

if you get your self a magnifying glass a brite torch go around the area inside the megadrive where the logo is on the front you might find a dry joint on one or more componets inside

if your not sure just re solder any joints you can see this should make it work again GOODLUCK

How to Factory reset genesis tablet


Hello there.
A hard reset will fix your dilemma. To do a hard reset first turn your phone off. Press the volume keys+ power button at the same time for about 5-10 seconds, an android logo should bring up. You are now on the system recovery menu, scroll through the options using the volume keys. you will find a prompt asking you if you want to reset factory settings, choose YES and your device should boot up like the first time it was bought. Be warned though, doing a factory reset will delete all your files/ installed apps.

Wont come on


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.

When i plug in me sega genesis and plug it in to the t.v. no screen comes up not even a black screen how do i fix it


Check these things first:

1. The power supply puts out enough voltage and works okay.

2. Channel selector switch is in the channel 3 position.

3. Replace the AV/RF cable with a known good working one.

Does the Genesis power light come on?

My TV does not power up when the power button is pressed.


It's sounds like your lamp or backlight has went out, I suggest reading your manual for service info and look online for a local repair shop.

JVC 42 inch LCD HD TV has no picture or sound


utencilio posted this fix. It worked for my JVC LT-42X579.

Okay, I found a fix! Called JVC, spoke to somebody there, here it is:
1)unplug the TV completely, no wall no power strips, completely
2)wait 10 sec
3)plug TV back in and Turn it on, the light will still be doing the same thing
4)wait 30 sec
5)ON THE TV, not the remote, locate the menu, volume (-) and power button.
6)while simultaneously holding down the menu and volume (-) button, pressed the power button ONCE and continue to hold the other 2 for 10 sec.
7)on the remote control, go to menu>settings>system info
*** now this I know as a FACT will work on systems that display: JVC - ver.5.32FO001, but I don't know of any other versions***
8)press the mute button on the remote twice
9)unplugg TV again and wait 10 sec.
10) plug TV in and turn on

It SHOULD be working normally now... Thanx to the guys a JVC support for this one, I know it seems like an obvious first place to look, but sometimes it isn't. I for one checked online forums first
