You might want to resolder all the pins on the connector, and when you are in there, eeplace the caps to make it last forever

SOURCE: my sega game gear sound has no sound how can i fix it!

might need a new headphone jack due to rough handling or a new volume pot. try plugging in headphones and wriggling them gently to see if you get sound, if that does not work try fiddling the volume knob, whichever gives a burst of sound will show you which needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Sega Genesis Video Problem

Maybe you are supposed to be on Channel 4. There should be a 3-4 switch on your RF adapter. Try wiggling the video connection in the back of your genesis and see if that fixes anything, it might be a lose port, in which case you have to wrap the cable underneath the genesis or something heavy to keep it at a working angle (if you find a working angle).

It is also possible your RF cable is bad. They aren't that much on ebay, but make sure you buy one for your model (there are 2 models of genesis and they use different RF cables)

I hope this helps somewhat.

SOURCE: I recently plugged in my Sega Genesis (MK-1601)

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!

Screen upside down


If it has a game cartridge remove and dust the contacts on the game and the console, dont use any liquids...a can of air should do the trick. If that doesnt work then unplug the video cable and inspect to see if theres any cuts or dust on the prong.

My copy of Aladdin shows the produced by sega and then the screen goes black all of the other games work except for this one


Try cleaning the connector pins on your Aladdin cartridge. Apply rubbing alcohol to Q-tips and scrub those connector pins vigorously. You should notice lots of dirt and grime coming off the cartridge onto the Q-tips. This will take many, many q-tips.

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 an original Sega Genesis console. It runs my old games just fine except for an occasional freezeup, but there's one game that I can't get to work. When I put it in, the little "produced...


Hello,
Based on the fact that your Sega Genesis works with your other games, this indicates that the problem is with the game in question. The cartridge could be damaged, but your best option is to clean the connectors. Alcohol is safe fro electronics and great for cleaning.

Needed:
Q-tips
99% isopropyl alcohol

1. Dip the Q-tip in to the alcohol.
2. Rub the end of the Q-tip against the metal contactors, ensuring to clean well.
3. Flip the cartridge over and do it again.
4. Test game. If needed, clean again.

If this does not work, the cartridge is most likely damaged.

Please let me know if I can further assist you.

Regards,
KYTechnology

Problem with the 1st generation sega genesis


If the screen changes (From snow to black or something) when the console is turned on it sound like the console is partially working. Try cleaning the Cardridge pins que tip and some sort of cleaning fluid.

Once this is done insert and eject the cartridge several times then repeat the cleaning process on the cartridge. Hope this helps.
