Well try cleaning the gamepacks and the cartiage reader out with qutips and rubbing alchoal for the rf switch channel 3 or 4 only for the rf switch to work on those 2 channels.

Make sure that you are selecting the right input option, and that your Sega Megadrive is a PAL version.

Ive got a sega megadrive and i want to get it working on my lcd tv , Can i ??


yup lcd tv's today still have cable inputs. so u should be able to.

question u can answer for urself. whats the point of a sega megadrive. like there is only 1 game preloaded (sonic) and it doesn't even have sound.

the only thing i liked about the system over the other sega is that it has headphone jacks.

Can't find the frequency for the genisis 1 sega megadrive, I have the RF converter but I've tried doing auto search and manual, just cant find it...


Hi some new TV'S may not have the frequency of these old consoles i recommend purchasing a AV cable which is can be found at http://www.gameoz.com.au/store/sega-mega-drive/mega-drive-accessories/sega-mega-drive-1-av-cable.html

No tuning in a channel and better picture Quality

Sega megadrive 2 never comes to black screen just snowstorm


Ensure that the switch on the back of the unit is set to channel 3 or 4, and that your TV is tuned to this channel. Additionaly, make sure that the rf switch is properly wired in to your television and that no wires have come loose or fallen out.

Ive got a black sega mega drive but cant seem to locate a channel.. am i doing something wrong with the wires


you need to have an old-ish tv...and you need to choose one channel,any one and tune it in...you need to keep going untill you either have a black screen or the game youve inserted..

TURN YOUR MEGADRIVE ON WHILE TUNING

if youve done that and you still dont have it it might be the wire

I just aquired a sega megadrive 2 with all leads but no instructions. can you tell me how to set it up please? Michael


First plug the power plug into the mega drive and turn it on (there should be a red light showing that the megadrive is on)

Plug RF lead into the back of the mega drive and TV and make sure the switch is set at the megadrive side and not the ariel side, if you have a switch.

Now turn off mega drive, put a game into the slot and and then turn the console on.

Select a channel on your TV and tune it into the mega drive.

This should work.

How do i connect a sega mega drive 2 to a tv?


use the RF lead (plugs into the mini din at the back of the megadrive)
if you don't have the lead you might want to look at ebay for a replacement
of if you don't want the hastle of tuning your megadrive into your tv you could buy a scart lead from www.retro-cache.com

With my sega megadrive11 system when tuned in only sound comes no picture


Hi Wisebear,

First It maybe your TV not tuning in properly.
to try this go to your TVs Tuning menu and select manual tuning and fine tune around the sound and see if this helps...

second it may be the lead (worn wire) and not enough signal getting through, so you need a new cable

you may just want to upgrade to a scart lead
www.retro-cache.com
sells the scart lead for Megadrive 2's and soon will be doing Megadrives 1's as well, both RGB.
