they have videos on Youtube on how to hook Sega genesis version 1 2 and 3 consoles on up to a flat screen tv or any of the newer TV's. I just use a CRT style TV they are much easier to hook up old consoles too. Just buy a CRT tv type then.
Try an older TV set. I am not joking. It might very well be the case that newer TV sets/high-end TV systems can't handle the signals of the older video game consoles. Because the newr tv;s don't have the signal transfer inside of them to make the old consoles work so you could use the genesis av cables to hook up to a digital tv instead of the rf switch.
Don't plug your Genesis into your satellite box. Plug your Sega into the back of your TV set. Get a Sega Genesis composite video cable. Run that cable from the mini-DIN connector on the back of your Sega to the RCA (yellow, red white) connectors on the back of your TV set. If you don't have any spare RCA connectors on your TV set, try a composite video switch.
Hi the cables are know to become faulty due to age and wear. try replacing the cable but make sure you have tried to tune it into your tv first. There are now new AV cables on the market which suits some segas see www.gameoz.com.au for a large range of accessories for these old consoles
You need to hook up the cable coming in from the outside to one end of the Sega RF cable and hook the male end of the RF connector from the Sega into the cable input on the TV.On the back of the game console there is a channel selector switch.It is either CH3 or CH4 which is what your TV needs to be on when you turn on the console.If one looks bad try switching the channel selector on Sega and on the TV.
Good luck and game on!
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)
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.
