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.

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 sega genesis controller won't work completely in the first player port, but works fine in the second player port. It will only let me use the start button, the C button, and arrow buttons, but A, B, X,...


The port might need to be cleaned out, thats a seriously old school console so if it hasnt been cleaned in a while thats probably your issue, especially if the controller works in the other ports. If you have any experience with cleaning out consoles, you could do it yourself, if not i wouldent recomend it, id say to take it to an expert for cleaning.

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.

Game console having wire trouble connecting to controller?


Most likely the controller port is bad on your system and you need it repair or a replaced system. There are also 3 different licensed versions of sega genesis so each one is different to repair.
