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.

Whenever I turn on my game i just get a black screen, I'm guessing its my RF adapter, any ideas on how to hook it up a different way?


Well i used the av cables to hook up my sega because the av cables are easier to hookup to a tv then and are not a pain either.

I recently found my old sega megadrive/mega-cd and I've dusted it off and tried to reconnect it but have found i'm missing the cable which links it to the tv. According to the instruction manual I'm...


I searched and Sega themselves do not deal with older systems,however here is a phone number to the place that can probably help.They are contracted for the older systems I guess.It is called an RF connector or RF cable too.(714)836-4981.I don't see your system on the list on the link but it wasn't on Sega.com either.
http://sega-parts.com/ is the older systems link.
Sega's main number is 1-800-USA-SEGA but good luck trying to actually talk to someone.No surprise there huh?
Good luck and game on!

Just got a Sega Mega drive, connected to my plasma


Most old systems such as Mega Drive will come with an RF adaptor, which plugs into the back of the console and has a coaxial tip on the other end, to connect to the tv.

When you connect the coaxial end to the tv, you connect it to the round coax plug which is where you used to plug in your old cable tv hookup. It also might say Ant. or Antenna.

Turn on your megadrive and use your TVs input selector to change to either "antenna" or "tv" or "cable" input, or until you hit the input which displays your megadrive's signal.

Tip: use your TV's view options to change the input to a 4:3 or "not stretched" aspect ratio so that your old Fullscreen video games will not be stretched out wide on your new widescreen HDTV.

Good Luck!

My Sega turns on but it wont show a picture


Well it depends on the type of cable you got... if you got those red, white, yellow cables :) and it doesn't work try wiggling the cable in back of your genesis (common problem among most MAJORLY with the old style adapter) or chances are your cables broken or you have a shot av output
