Problems getting Mega CD to work...

Hi, I just got a Sega mega CD 1 and I can't get it to work. No lights are displayed and the tray doesn't open. I have both power cords (from the mega drive and CD consoles attached and on. The RF cord from the mega drive is in and at the right channel. The other cords that fit into the back of the TV are in (red and white).

The mega drive works, and plays games fine, but I get nothing on the mega CD. Any ideas? Thanks heaps for any answers you might be able to help me with...

Help! My Sega-Mega CD won't work. The MegaDrive works just fine (I played a game on it just 5 minutes ago) but the Mega CD won't even start. I've set it all up, referred to the manual and reset it and done...

the fuse has probably gone in it, thats a common problem with the sega cd's, you will have to replace the fuse on it, try looking up "sega cd model 2 fuse repair" in google and there should be some info/video's on the net to help you ;) I only know because I have the same problem lol

Mega CD 1 loading problem

Yes, but get ready to take it apart. The gears are out of alignment that operate the CD mech, and also dried out. Lithium grease helps it, keeps everything lubricated well. When you hold it vertically the things all move on the inside slightly but they go back again when you set it back down. Look at any washers and where gear shafts or other parts sit.

How do eject the cd out of the mega cd

There should be a button on the bottom left side of the SegaCD (megaCD) if it is a model 2. If it is a model 1, then you should turn on the system, and wait till it loads to the SEGACD splash screen and hit reset. The drive should open now. Press the start button to close it again.

Good Luck!

Hi can you tell me what amp fuse do i replace for the internal fuse on the pal sega mega cd 2 please

The fuse labeled F301 inside the MEGACD is 2.5A. It is beige in colour( US Mega CD 2) OR Bright Green (PAL Mega CD 2).

Most guides I have seen say to replace it with an 850mA, and never anything exceding 2A
