You can, the master system was made to play both cartridges and the credit card sized game cards.

My sega displays the intro but the game does not play how do i fix this??

A lot of older systems sometimes do something of that nature if there is a bit of dust in them.

Take a q-tip or cotton ball and put a bit of alcohol on it. Gently rub the inside of the game system where the cartridge connects in and the tabs on the cartridge as well. Best of luck.

I have just found my old sega master system and would like 2 play it on my plasma tv, however i have found it difficult 2 install. any hits would b helpful

You need to hook it up to one of the inputs and remeber the input being used so you can change your plasma tv to it so when you turn on your sega master system the screen will show up.
Here is a video from youtube that shows you exactly how to do it. Sega Master System plasma hookup.

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

Sega Master System Cartridge Issues

I found out what was wrong. The all of the solder connections where the cartridge slot pins meet the board were broken. I was able to verify that this was the issue by pressing the connections together while trying to boot up with a cartridge and it working. I will just need to get a fine tip for my soldering iron and some really small gauge solder.
