Probably dust in the game cartridge (sometimes blowing on it is not sufficient). Best way to clean a game cartridge is with a cottonswab and some rubbing alcohol

    I have had a sega change colors on me before and ended up being the cord that attaches to the tv. I would wiggle the cord right where it attached to the sega and that would make the problem better or worse (propping up the cord where it attaches to the sega fixed it but if wiggling the cord produces no effect i wouldn't recommend doing this)

SOURCE: Sega Genesis not showing a picture

As I had just a similar problem with my MegaDrive/Genesis maybe this helps: Try an older TV set. I am not joking. It might very well be the case that newer TV sets/high-end TV systems can't handle the signals of the older video game systems. I have a 100 hz TV set and whereas there are no problems with a SNES, with the MegaDrive I just had a black and white screen with bars running through it. On a 60 Hz TV set this problem does not occur. Keep in mind that there were no 100 hz/HDTV sets around when these video game systems were in general use.

yes it is very possible, if moving the machine while in game play the disk can become burned, making it unplayable.

SOURCE: Sega Saturn doesn't boot correctly. Can't play games.

This could be a situation where the Laser Lens voltage is off and it is not reading CDs. I have had this before.

You will have to take your case off, and look for a little orange "screw" or "dial" which is just above the cable that connects the laser assembly to the circuit board. It might have a Philips head looking top.

Make sure the system is off and unplugged before doing this.

Turn the orange screw approx 35 degrees clockwise, and the reassemble the system. This should give the laser enough juice to start reading the discs again.

If this is not the solution, it is possible your clock battery is dead. Buy a new CR2032 3Volt battery from wal-mart or your local watch store, and pop it into your top right (on the back of the system) compartment to fix this.

Good Luck!

My sega genesis won't work - it was working fine

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.

Under most circumstances the data is not dysfunctional. If other games work on your setup, than it's that individual game that is messed up, and the first thing that goes is the pins.

I have 1985 Sega hang on......plays but won't

I don't think Hang On has a DIP switch for gear shifting or speed, it sounds like you may need to calibrate or replace some of the controls. Here is a link to the owner's manual.

This might sound stupid, but it always worked for me! Get a pencil with a clean pink/red eraser at the tip of it- one that's never been used. Put it into the game, and rub it like you did with the Q-Tips (Left to Right). Get out a Q-Tip and clean the inside once more (Without alcohol) so that all of the eraser shavings are out of the game, and try to play it.
If this doesn't help, I'm sorry, but I don't know what to do. I've never had a game glitch after doing the pencil trick.
I really hope this helps!

Hi Maguerite

Am I right in thinking that you are trying to play a game made for the Sega Saturn on a PC? If so, it will only work in a Saturn.

Hope this helps

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

a basic lead for £2.50
replacments upto £10
both work

Dreamcast Loading problem

you can get disks relayered at game stores.
there was a long period where this happened to me.
some games worked for a while, some didnt.
its the dreamcast.
you might wanna get anew power cable or just clear out the dust because that is the main problem with the dreamcast.
try playing with the console upside down
it sounds crazy but it worked for me.
