Question about Computers & Internet
Cant seem to fin the sega mega drive2 on my tv 16bit help? have searched and searched....arggggg! got it for a friend and she says she cant put it on to work her other does same!
dont know what else to do as to tune it in.
Hi, if your plugging the sega mega drive into the airial socket ie same fitting as the arial then what you need to do is make sure its plugged into the arial socket properly now you need to switch it on with a game in wait for minute or so for the game to load up.
Then you need to put your telly onto a channel you dont use such as 7.
Then you need to use the telly remote and enter the setup mode once in this mode you need to use the setting that lets you scan for the telly channels.
Now depending on your telly this will either be an auto tune or manual or both if you can choose then pick the manual type.
Once this is selected you then need to choose witch way your going to tune ie up or down.
Make sure on the menu your tuning the channel you want ie 7 or what ever you want to use.
Now it dont matter witch way you start scanning so start the scanning then just keep going the one way then eventually you will get the screen tuned into the mega drive you then need to save this setting into the channel your using.
Right now you have done all that if by any chance on the lead from the megadrive to the tell it has a switch ok then try it with it in the on possition then scan all the way if after ages you get no picture then press the little switch and scan again.
But depending how old it is you may not have a switch dont worry if not as its less hassle to tune in as you havent got 2 choices.
So their is the instructions if it is an arial socket type connector.
If however it is the three color leads then plug these into the right colors on the telly then make sure you have a game in switch it on wait 1 min or so then get the telly control and find the source or maybe av button depending on your control is will be either of those 2 if it dont have them then look for a small picture on the control it will look like a square box with an arrow running from the right to left this is the av/source button.
Once you have found this button you may need to press it 3 or 4 times untill your on the right input ok then you should have it on(only these instructions if its color leads if not follow first instructions ok)
I know its a lot of info but youll get their in the end (that is if the lead from mega to telly isnt damaged) if after doing what i say you still get no picture then the chances are the lead is damaged and needs replacing but from what i can remember (back in the day) it was just a normal arial lead anyway so you should have one of these lying around.
Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
