Question about Sega Megadrive Black Console
I've found back my Sega Megadrive II console, Europe, Australia & New Zealand version (the one shown here: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/f/fe/SegaMegadrive2.jpg )
I remember I used to play this about 10 years ago, and it had a dedicated channel, which was 17. Now, on that same tv, I have tried it on the same channel, but nothing happens. On none of the channels it shows my game nor on AV/TV. I am sure everything is connected right and the console is turned on like it should, a game is inserted.
I guess it just doesn't play anymore on these days' tv's. Is there anyway to get this console started anyway, on any tv?

Ensure that the switch on the back of the unit is set to channel 3 or 4, and that your TV is tuned to this channel. Additionaly, make sure that the rf switch is properly wired in to your television and that no wires have come loose or fallen out.

Just keep fiddling with it. I kept messing with the video cable, where it plugs into the back of the console. I got the "Licensed by Sega, etc." message for a few seconds before it went black again, turned it off, pulled out the cartridge then slammed it back in. Now all of the few carts I own are working with the console.

dont know how many times ive said this but
GET AN OLDER TV
it saves all that time you use trying to hook it up to a new one..it doesnt even have to be that old just not a plasma or HD tv, its much MUCH easyer and saves lots of time, and mabie even money

Hi some new TV'S may not have the frequency of these old consoles i recommend purchasing a AV cable which is can be found at http://www.gameoz.com.au/store/sega-mega-drive/mega-drive-accessories/sega-mega-drive-1-av-cable.html
No tuning in a channel and better picture Quality
