    Same thing happens with my Genesis. When i turn the power on, my tv screen flashes/blinks for a split second. Then nothing. The red power LED is on, but no image.

    I have the same problem, but only with certain cartridges. I have 12 games. 6 work, 6 don't (they give me the black screen and don't load or do anything). For that reason, I think my problem is with the cartridges themselves and not the connectors inside the system. I have already cleaned the conductors on the cartridges with a cotton swab and rubbing alcohol, so it is probably an internal problem. I have asked about it elsewhere and people have suggested that the cartridges' capacitors are probably either bad and in need of replacement, or else they're loose and need to be soldered back into place. I am looking for a how-to guide for this process.

Actually somethign like that happened to mine. you might want to try to place a piece of paper in the front of the cartridge that will make the cartridge stay all the way back this is due to the fact that some of the connectors were messed up and had to be extremely close to work.

It gets to the trademarked screen than beeps and goes black


Well I think that the sega is broken then and I have never heard of a sega console beeping so it might be a power supply problem then.

When I turn on my Sega Genesis, a black screen appears on the TV and nothing else happens. It shows nothing but a black screen. When you turn on the console you can hear it try to start with no success.


Well try cleaning the game packs out with quips and rubbing alchal the game packs could just be dirty then I had a problem with my sega it would just show a black screen when I turned it on so I cleaned out the game packs and it was fine after that the worst case is that your sega is on its way out let's hope not but lukie games sells sega products too.

Problem with the 1st generation sega genesis


If the screen changes (From snow to black or something) when the console is turned on it sound like the console is partially working. Try cleaning the Cardridge pins que tip and some sort of cleaning fluid.

Once this is done insert and eject the cartridge several times then repeat the cleaning process on the cartridge. Hope this helps.
