No fix. Not Written for Xp.
In 2002, Sega Smash Pack: Twin Pack was released on PC, and it contained both of the above collections. However there are incompatibility issues as a result of playing the game on Windows XP. When a user plays Sega Smash Pack 1 under XP, Games suddenly quit without error after a certain amount of time.

SOURCE: how do i set up my sega genesis
There should be regular av cables and wall adapter for it. Mine came with the wrong cords and that might of happened to you. So if you don't know the av cables go in the back of the tv and plug's in the back of the sega. and the wall adapter goes in the wall. If you don't have the cords than get them off line. Type in:
cut and paste it online and you can get them.

I'm assuming this game cabinet was built in the 80's. More than likely, the monitor is an Electrohome GO-7. If this is the case, replace capacitor C511 on the monitor board. It has baked open due to old age. Usually, capacitor kits can be purchased for around 10 bucks, so you might want to replace all the caps on the board at ths time. Worst case scenario would be that the Flyback transformer has smoked (usually you'll see a crack on the side of the transformer), causing the horizontal output transistor to cook and also the smaller of the two pigtail fuses to blow. In this case, you would have to replace the Flyback transformer, the horizontal output transistor, and the small pigtail fuse associated with it. Remember to always discharge the second anode( the suction cup thingy on the side of the tube). It will hold a substantial charge on it. Also, if the small pigtail fuse is blown, you will need to discharge the large cap on the monitor board, or else it will knock you on your rear-end when you try to replace the blown fuse. Hopefully, you'll will only have to replace one cap. C511. If your game does not have an electrohome monitor, I can still help, if you provide the manufacturers info, such as Well Gardner model 7204, or something like that. Good luck!

This is pretty common. The games just need a good Q-Tip cleaning, and then the weird clean pencil-eraser rubbing.
Get out a Q-Tip, and rub it inside the game, on the copper part (The part you stick down into the system.). Keep doing this with new Q-Tips if the old ones get soiled with black stuff. After the new Q-Tip comes out white, it should work.
Sometimes, that isn't enough. Use some Windex or any other rubbing alcohol, dip it onto a Q-Tip, and rub it onto the copper part. Then, use a dry Q-Tip to dry it off, and let it sit out of it's case and out of the system for about 20 minutes so that the alcohol dries.
If that doesn't work, use a pencil with a clean pink eraser at the tip. Rub it inside the game, and use a Q-Tip to get all of the eraser shavings out. This breaks the electro-static cling/friction made when the game is being read by the system.
And if none of that works, go on Amazon or Ebay or to the store Slackers and get new video and AC wires for the Genesis. Sometimes that's all it needs!
I really hope this helps!

The problem is with the board firmware not the network.It seems the board firmware is corrupted and you can't reinstall the firmware.You need a RC cable to reinstall the corrupted firmware.Call the
Sega technician and ask him to reinstall it.
Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
Thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)
