Bought a Sega Genesis on ebay. It displays the games correctly but will not respond to the controller. The controller has been tested to work with another system. What could be causing this?

Its the controller ports inside of the system that controlls the controllers to function is broken or loose then and needs to be resoldered. I had a problem with my sega after i resoldered the 2nd controller port it worked again then.

The down button on my Sega Master System controllers won't work when they are plugged into the first controller port (Fine on the second). I have already taken apart the system and tried to clean up...

Hey there.
In your case, there is only one real solution: get another controller. You will save both time and money, and you will know that you'll have a working controller. Chances are you will not ever be able to fix that problem, even with soldering.
You could start by browsing ebay:
If you really want to try to spend some time repairing it, that video could help you understand the controller a lot more:
Hope I helped you!

Where could I find a replacement controller port for my Sega Master System, one of the pins is broken, and I would prefer to replace it without cannibalising any of my other consoles.

The best place to look for things like this is eBay. Just search for As-Is Sega Master System on eBay, and see what comes up ( I also just searched for sega master system, and found some cheap consoles that were in working order). Also, another option you might try is see if there were any "controller extensions" made for it. That might give you something to cannibalize to make your new port. Hope this has helped!

I have bought a sega master system type 1. This comes with Alex the kid built in. When playing either the built in game or a game I bought to test it the sega master system crashes after about a minute. ...

This si a very old peice, I would say its the video card inside called the gpu witch is getting hot causing it to crash mid game. This hapends with age,use ect ect the only way to repair this is with a new logic board. With that said you might want to consider buying another of ebay. These are going dirty cheap i seen one for 5 bucks. So really there is not really anything that can be done to tell you the truth.

Thanks and please do be considerate with your feedback and ratings.

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

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

Megadrive 1 rf lead with switch box
I also remeber at a 99p shop seeing a 3 way TV switching box
search for MK-3088 on ebay (below) they are compatable

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.
