Question about Sega Genesis Console

Cannot hook up my genesis 2 console to my LCD tv

I have a Sega genesis 2 console with the RF, and it works on my daughters 13 inch tube TV (because it has an RF out on it) and my LCD does not so I have tried running a/v cables through a VCR and running it through my TV and the genesis RF through the VCR and got nothing and I cannot get it to work running it through my cable box either. I have a Comcast HD box with DVR and still nothing, the system works great on the older TV but I wish I could play it on the 47 inch flat screen.

    When you ran it through your VCR did you have it (the VCR) set for the correct channel - should be 3 or 4. Did you get a 'black screen'?

My sega genesis has a clear picture but static sound can someone help?


Try an older TV set. I am not joking. It might very well be the case that newer TV sets/high-end TV systems can't handle the signals of the older video game consoles. Because the newr tv;s don't have the signal transfer inside of them to make the old consoles work so you could use the genesis av cables to hook up to a digital tv instead of the rf switch.

Did you say HDMI? I don't think there are HDMI plugs for Sega Genesis. You can plug in your Sega via composite video through RCA cables (yellow, red white) or via RF signal through coaxial cable. Check your TV's specs to make sure it can display standard definition content via composite or via RF.

You can double check to make sure your Sega Genesis is working properly by plugging it into an old-fashioned CRT (fat tube) television set.

How to hook sega genesis up to a flat screen tv


You need to hook up the cable coming in from the outside to one end of the Sega RF cable and hook the male end of the RF connector from the Sega into the cable input on the TV.On the back of the game console there is a channel selector switch.It is either CH3 or CH4 which is what your TV needs to be on when you turn on the console.If one looks bad try switching the channel selector on Sega and on the TV.
Good luck and game on!

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.

No sound on Sega with lcd tv


If you are using the RCA 8 or 9 pin DIN connection, make sure one of the pins is not bent in or missing. If you are using the RF adapter, be sure that the channel selection switch is completely flipped to either channel 3 or 4.
