Well it could be that the game packs are dirty try cleaning them out with qutips and rubbing alcohol and trying cleaning out the console with compressed air cans too see if it makes a difference.

Genesis loads up shows licensed by sega then freezes


The problem doesn't come from your console, but from your game cartridge. I had the same problem, and I've stumbled upon your question while Googling about it.

Recently, I wrote a tutorial about how to solve this problem which affects most old consoles that use game cartridges, such as the NES, the Nintendo 64 and the Genesis.

The tutorial is in French, so here's link to a translation by Google Translate: http://is.gd/52USF
Please ignore grammatical mistakes, as those are the result of the automatic translation. The tutorial is about NES cartridges, but it works with any gaming system that uses cartridges.

Freezing


I have the same problem with my genesis. Most likely it freezes if you make the cartridge move any, which is hard to avoid on these older consoles. Same goes for any cartridge based console i.e. NES,SNES,N64 sega
Theres a cheap way to keep the cartridge from moving though, heres what i do; As your inserting the game, wedge something like a quarter, or a small piece of cardboard with the game. It keeps the game from moving, and thus keeping it from freezing.
hope this works for you!!
