The surrounding capacitors are the culprit here, I believe. They can be replaced and many places exist to help with just this problem.

Contrast really dark but seems to improve after the tv has been on several hours


Hi:
You may have a problem with the inverters in the unit, they are responsible for lighting up the back panel. Check or have checked the power supply voltage to the inverters, should be around 18-24 volts DC. Also leaky capacitors on the power supply will cause this issue as well as leaky or puffy capacitors on the inverter.

Man I haven't seen an actual Sega Genesis console in years. Anyways...
1) Make sure that everything is plugged into your system properly. 2) Check you make sure your TV is on the right channel 3) Check to make sure the fan is at least powering up when you turn on the Genesis. If it is then the Genesis is working. 4) Plug something else into the TV to make sure it works.
Remember, HDTVs and LCDs and this whole Al Gore's Gone Green thing wasn't around when they made the Sega Genesis, so conventional means to playing a Sega aren't your best option. Don't plug it into the wall either, make sure you are plugging it into a surge protector.
Hope this helps.

Hi, get your hands on a new AV cable you will notice a great difference in picture quality compared to the RF switch. see www.gameoz.com.au as they stock the cable you require. They also can modify the console with a s-video out put which would be one of the best picture quality possable available from one of these retro consoles

don't panic
sometimes the LED goes on the Megadrive
so try to tune it in anyway. (clean a game and put it in)
also sometimes you can get a "Dry joint" at the power port at the back of the megadrive.
this is fixed by unscrewing the megadrive and a little solder on the each of the 3 joints.
