Hi the cables are know to become faulty due to age and wear. try replacing the cable but make sure you have tried to tune it into your tv first. There are now new AV cables on the market which suits some segas see www.gameoz.com.au for a large range of accessories for these old consoles

Sega mega drive with av cable


if your screen is black and you unplug the cable from the megadrive , does the screen go blue ? if so the machine is sending out an a/v signal to the tv and your problem lies with the game cartridge contacts being dirty or the contacts in the slot on the console being dirty , try cleaning the contact strip with some electrical contact cleaner on a cotton bud or small paint brush , hope this helps ,its saved loads of my games

How can I hook my sega genesis console to my Direct tv box?


Don't plug your Genesis into your satellite box. Plug your Sega into the back of your TV set. Get a Sega Genesis composite video cable. Run that cable from the mini-DIN connector on the back of your Sega to the RCA (yellow, red white) connectors on the back of your TV set. If you don't have any spare RCA connectors on your TV set, try a composite video switch.

Trying to connect a Sega Genesis. I know it's connected properly to the place where the cable wire goes and then that is connected to the connector. What channel do I go to to play the games?


Hi,

The input from the Sega wont be on any channel number - you need to select the correct input for the Sega using the "INPUT SELECT" button on the Symphonic remote control supplied with the TV. Switch on the TV the Sega, then press this button repeatedly until you can see the picture from the Sega.

- If you are using the sockets on the BACK of the TV, the correct input is "VIDEO 1"
- If you are using the sockets on the FRONT of the TV, the correct input is "VIDEO 2". You can also switch to the "VIDEO 2" input by pressing the "GAME" button on the Symphonic remote - if you still have it.

If you don't have the Symphonic remote, look for a button marked "INPUT" or "SOURCE" if you are using a universal remote.

If you don't have any remote for the TV, you will only be able to use the sockets on the front of the TV. You will then need to switch to "GAME MODE" by using the buttons on the front of the TV:

1. Switch ON the TV and the Sega;
2. Press the MENU button;
3. Press the VOLUME UP button to open the PICTURE MENU;
4. Highlight GAME MODE using the CHANNEL UP/DOWN buttons;
5. Set GAME MODE to "ON" using the VOLUME UP/DOWN buttons;
6. Press MENU again to close the menu

You should now be able to see the picture from the Sega. If not, check you have correctly connected the Sega to the TV. When you have finished using the Sega you will need to use the method above to switch game mode off again.

Hopefully, I've covered every possible angle. If you have a different Symphonic TV model from the one listed above (ST420FF), the method should be similar, but if you have any difficulty, please post back for further assistance.

BElectric.

Hi i have a sega megadrive 2 and have only just got it out, but now have a Bush digital TV and the Sega is on (power) but I can't either locate the channel or am confused on how it connects up to the Tv to...


I think those have the old style RF connectors.A coaxial cable with a grey or black box in the connection cable.Plug the coaxial cable from outside into the RF cable.Plug the RF cable into the TV coaxial input(regular cable input).On the back of the Sega,there should be a switch for CH3 or CH 4.Put the TV on the appropriate channel.If the signal looks bad,switch the selector on the Sega and change the TV channel.If you do not have the RF cable there is a place that still sells Sega accessories,but not Sega.They must have contracted with Sega.If you need the site let me know.
Good luck!

Have just bought a hardly used sega megasystem 2 console but it doesnt seem to work. does anyone know where all the leads etc should go? thanks


Hi, Sega master system 2 are connected to your TV via an RF cable. One end is RCA which connects to your console the other end is Pal which connects to you TV's antenna inlet if your using the sega RF switch then the RF switch connects to your antenna inlet on your TV and you should have a RCA to RCA cable which connects the console to the switch. Please note these cables and power adaptors can in some cases be faulty. These console are manually tune to VHF-1 frequency so make sure your TV has this frequency. some do tune to UHF but most tune to VHF-1 if you need parts www.gameoz.com.au stock the a huge range.
