Originally Sega made a three button control but then in 1993 they came out with a six button controller similar to what controllers look like today. They also came out with wireless controllers.

The down button on my Sega Master System controllers won't work when they are plugged into the first controller port (Fine on the second). I have already taken apart the system and tried to clean up...


Hey there.
In your case, there is only one real solution: get another controller. You will save both time and money, and you will know that you'll have a working controller. Chances are you will not ever be able to fix that problem, even with soldering.
You could start by browsing ebay:
http://video-games.shop.ebay.com/System-Accessories-/54968/i.html?rt=nc&Platform=Sega%2520Master%2520System&_nkw=sega%20controller&_catref=1&_dmpt=Video_Games_Accessories&_fln=1&_ssov=1&_trksid=p3286.c0.m282
If you really want to try to spend some time repairing it, that video could help you understand the controller a lot more:

Hope I helped you!

Trying to connect a Sega Genesis. I know it's connected properly to the place where the cable wire goes and then that is connected to the connector. What channel do I go to to play the games?


Hi,

The input from the Sega wont be on any channel number - you need to select the correct input for the Sega using the "INPUT SELECT" button on the Symphonic remote control supplied with the TV. Switch on the TV the Sega, then press this button repeatedly until you can see the picture from the Sega.

- If you are using the sockets on the BACK of the TV, the correct input is "VIDEO 1"
- If you are using the sockets on the FRONT of the TV, the correct input is "VIDEO 2". You can also switch to the "VIDEO 2" input by pressing the "GAME" button on the Symphonic remote - if you still have it.

If you don't have the Symphonic remote, look for a button marked "INPUT" or "SOURCE" if you are using a universal remote.

If you don't have any remote for the TV, you will only be able to use the sockets on the front of the TV. You will then need to switch to "GAME MODE" by using the buttons on the front of the TV:

1. Switch ON the TV and the Sega;
2. Press the MENU button;
3. Press the VOLUME UP button to open the PICTURE MENU;
4. Highlight GAME MODE using the CHANNEL UP/DOWN buttons;
5. Set GAME MODE to "ON" using the VOLUME UP/DOWN buttons;
6. Press MENU again to close the menu

You should now be able to see the picture from the Sega. If not, check you have correctly connected the Sega to the TV. When you have finished using the Sega you will need to use the method above to switch game mode off again.

Hopefully, I've covered every possible angle. If you have a different Symphonic TV model from the one listed above (ST420FF), the method should be similar, but if you have any difficulty, please post back for further assistance.

BElectric.

The sega genesis controller won't work completely in the first player port, but works fine in the second player port. It will only let me use the start button, the C button, and arrow buttons, but A, B, X,...


The port might need to be cleaned out, thats a seriously old school console so if it hasnt been cleaned in a while thats probably your issue, especially if the controller works in the other ports. If you have any experience with cleaning out consoles, you could do it yourself, if not i wouldent recomend it, id say to take it to an expert for cleaning.

Control pad does not work


You should definately check the jacks for your console, that includes the controller's male and the console's female jack. If you have to, go ahead and wipe them clean with some alcohol, letting some drip in and let them air out. Its possible that some stuff has dripped inside the console's power or reset switch that caused problems with your Sega. You could try and go ahead taking the console apart, checking the terminals and stuff inside for mositure. Also, you shoudl try a new contol pad, as it definately didn't win any awards for its reliabitly.
