Question about Sega Genesis Console
Hmmm... see, I had that SAME problem with my dad's old Genesis. So, I went out and got a new video wire for it (Can be found at Slackers if you're in the midwest of America... if you aren't, go on Ebay or Amazon and hunt around!), and a new AC cord. Then it worked just fine.
If that doesn't work, try cleaning the copper part of the game you stick into the system with Q-Tips. Sometimes Windex helps, and then you can use a Q-Tip to get the Windex off, and let it dry for about 20 minutes. And if those don't work, get a pencil with a clean pink eraser at the tip, and rub it in the game. Use a Q-Tip to get off all of the eraser shavings. The eraser breaks the electro-static cling made when the game is being read/played.
Good luck, and I really hope this helps!
