Question about Sega Genesis Console

2 Answers

Adaptors I have an old sega genesis (model MK-1631) that I found in my storage however the adaptor wasn't there with it so I would like to know what the polarity is on the adaptor originally was so that I may purchase a new one. It just seems to be such a waste as I also found a ton of games with it and the kids really want to get it going.

Th ac adapter for the NES is pretty much the same. You can buy an after market one for cheap.

How do you hook a sega mk-1631 to a hd tv?


Close to the power supply input is a 9-pin round connector.
You will need a cable that connect this output to your TV.
You can find the description here:
http://www.gametrog.com/GAMETROG/SEGA_Genesis_1_2_3_Information_Specs.html

Halfway the page you will find the description of the MK-1631 with details about the cable you need.

There is a picture of the cable here:

You can also google for a "9-pin A/V Cable for SMS & GENESIS".

I hope this helps!

I lost the adaptor of my sega pico model no. MK-49002, I want to buy another one but don't know the specs. It only says to use 2103 AC adaptor. Need the ratings and other specs of the adaptor please.


Check the bottom of the unit and it should have the specs of the power supplies voltage and amp's. Check Ebay for a replacement. Good luck.

I don't think they have an A/V cable.Back in the day they were using RF cables.It looks like a regular cable but has a grey or black box in the line.

No idea why it's not working.


Well the RF Adaptors are not that great for the sega genny they seem to fail more times then not and if been sitting rolled up in a ball I would have to run a conclusion that the RF adaptor is pooched.

Another idea would pulling the top of the genny shell off and looking at where the RF jack is on the mainboard and looking to see if its burnt in any spots this could be the issue as well.

alot of people would still say its a cleaning issue either the game or the system needs cleaning but if you have done that already have you tryed using rubbing alcohal on a q-tip and run it along the carts contacts?

I ushally have a modified genesis laying around with A/V cables to be used instead of the RF cables that is another method you could try to if you into soldering at all or feel safe doing it. let me tell you besides fixing the controller port issue on a dreamcast the genesis AV mod is the easyest out there to do if you need or would like more info on this as well let me know and I will help you out

Also what model genny do you have model 1, 2 or 3?

dont forget to rate this solution thanks eh!

I have a sega genesis. i hae no look how to hook it up. please help me.


well a sega genesis there are 3 different models all either using RF adaptors or AV cables

if RF adaptor please follow this

plug the RF adaptor into the back of your tv the coaxal cable for your tv service ushally runs through this, and plug it into the the back and you can also plug the service into the RF adaptor for the sega genesis. plug the power in and make sure you are on the correct channel (3or4)

If you are using AV cables please advise and I will post the following for that.

Sega genesis


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.
