Sega Genesis not working


It might be dead. I used to have two of them I got from a relative as well and one of them did the same thing. The inside might just be fried (they're old consoles). You could take it to a repair place if you really wanted to but it may cost more money to have it looked at than the system is worth as a whole.

My sega genesis won't work - it was working fine


You screwed it up by plugging it into the 64. It is too old to handle that kind of stuff. I reccomend going and getting youself a Xbox 360 slim. They are much more efficient.

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.

Need step by step directions to hook up a 16 bit Sega Genesis


There should be two plugs on the back of the sega. One for the power cord, and one for the audio/video cord. The audio/video cord is a coax cord with a little box in line. Hook your cable or antenna cable into the jack on the box and hook the end of the cable from the sega into your tv. There will be a switch on the sega or on the box somewhere that designates channel three or four, this is what channel your tv will need to be on to use the sega.

BOX THINGY


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
http://shop.ebay.co.uk/items/_W0QQ_dmptZUKQ5fVideoGamesQ5fVideoGameAccessoriesQ5fVideoGameAccessoriesQ5fJN?_nkw=sega+rf++Master+System++&_sacat=0&_fromfsb=&_trksid=m270.l1313&_odkw=sega+rf&_osacat=0

a basic lead for £2.50
replacments upto £10
both work

No idea why it's not working.


Well the RF Adaptors are not that great for the sega genny they seem to fail more times then not and if been sitting rolled up in a ball I would have to run a conclusion that the RF adaptor is pooched.

Another idea would pulling the top of the genny shell off and looking at where the RF jack is on the mainboard and looking to see if its burnt in any spots this could be the issue as well.

alot of people would still say its a cleaning issue either the game or the system needs cleaning but if you have done that already have you tryed using rubbing alcohal on a q-tip and run it along the carts contacts?

I ushally have a modified genesis laying around with A/V cables to be used instead of the RF cables that is another method you could try to if you into soldering at all or feel safe doing it. let me tell you besides fixing the controller port issue on a dreamcast the genesis AV mod is the easyest out there to do if you need or would like more info on this as well let me know and I will help you out

Also what model genny do you have model 1, 2 or 3?

dont forget to rate this solution thanks eh!

don't panic
sometimes the LED goes on the Megadrive
so try to tune it in anyway. (clean a game and put it in)
also sometimes you can get a "Dry joint" at the power port at the back of the megadrive.
this is fixed by unscrewing the megadrive and a little solder on the each of the 3 joints.
