I have an old sega genesis and got new plugs to plug it into my 42'' HDMI Vizio. all the plugs are in and the light is on but the screen stays blank. I have tried blowing on the game and got the...


Did you say HDMI? I don't think there are HDMI plugs for Sega Genesis. You can plug in your Sega via composite video through RCA cables (yellow, red white) or via RF signal through coaxial cable. Check your TV's specs to make sure it can display standard definition content via composite or via RF.

You can double check to make sure your Sega Genesis is working properly by plugging it into an old-fashioned CRT (fat tube) television set.

Hello,
Based on the fact that your Sega Genesis works with your other games, this indicates that the problem is with the game in question. The cartridge could be damaged, but your best option is to clean the connectors. Alcohol is safe fro electronics and great for cleaning.

Needed:
Q-tips
99% isopropyl alcohol

1. Dip the Q-tip in to the alcohol.
2. Rub the end of the Q-tip against the metal contactors, ensuring to clean well.
3. Flip the cartridge over and do it again.
4. Test game. If needed, clean again.

If this does not work, the cartridge is most likely damaged.

Please let me know if I can further assist you.

Regards,

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.
