Well try cleaning the game packs out with quips and rubbing alchal the game packs could just be dirty then I had a problem with my sega it would just show a black screen when I turned it on so I cleaned out the game packs and it was fine after that the worst case is that your sega is on its way out let's hope not but lukie games sells sega products too.

SOURCE: no picture for Genesis - RF or console?

The problem is most likely not the console. The first thing you should try is cleaning the contacts on your games. Most of the games have tamper proof fasteners so unless you have the right tools you won't be able to open them. You can take a q-tip with a little alcohol (damp not wet) and clean both sides of the circuit board on the cartridge until the q-tip comes out clean. Let it dry before sticking it into the console. If you do this to a couple of games with no luck try taking an emery board (for fingernails) and gently inserting it into the connector in the console a few times all along the length of it. Make sure to only push it straight in and pull it straight out. If you try pushing it side to side while it is in there you could damage the connector.

SOURCE: Problem with the 1st generation sega genesis

If the screen changes (From snow to black or something) when the console is turned on it sound like the console is partially working. Try cleaning the Cardridge pins que tip and some sort of cleaning fluid.

Once this is done insert and eject the cartridge several times then repeat the cleaning process on the cartridge. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: how do i set up my sega genesis

There should be regular av cables and wall adapter for it. Mine came with the wrong cords and that might of happened to you. So if you don't know the av cables go in the back of the tv and plug's in the back of the sega. and the wall adapter goes in the wall. If you don't have the cords than get them off line. Type in:

cut and paste it online and you can get them.

When I try to hook my Sega Genesis up to my TV, why does nothing happen?


you should have a red light and if its on it should be working. I would just go on Amazon and buy a AV connector for the system, no need to use RF like its 1989 :)

Sega Genesis not showing a picture


As I had just a similar problem with my MegaDrive/Genesis maybe this helps: Try an older TV set. I am not joking. It might very well be the case that newer TV sets/high-end TV systems can't handle the signals of the older video game systems. I have a 100 hz TV set and whereas there are no problems with a SNES, with the MegaDrive I just had a black and white screen with bars running through it. On a 60 Hz TV set this problem does not occur. Keep in mind that there were no 100 hz/HDTV sets around when these video game systems were in general use.

Sega genesis 1993 model broken, no picture, just black


Actually somethign like that happened to mine. you might want to try to place a piece of paper in the front of the cartridge that will make the cartridge stay all the way back this is due to the fact that some of the connectors were messed up and had to be extremely close to work.
