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.

My sega genesis has a clear picture but static sound can someone help?


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 consoles. Because the newr tv;s don't have the signal transfer inside of them to make the old consoles work so you could use the genesis av cables to hook up to a digital tv instead of the rf switch.

Help connecting a Sega Genesis 16bit system!


What you will need to do with the RF cable is to take your incoming cable thast goes to your TV and screw it into one side of the RF box. Then the adjacent short cable wire that is on the other side needs to be screwed into your TV. The long end of the cord plugs into the back of the sgea unit. Good luck! Any other questions, feel free to ask.

Need step by step directions to hook up a 16 bit Sega Genesis


There should be two plugs on the back of the sega. One for the power cord, and one for the audio/video cord. The audio/video cord is a coax cord with a little box in line. Hook your cable or antenna cable into the jack on the box and hook the end of the cable from the sega into your tv. There will be a switch on the sega or on the box somewhere that designates channel three or four, this is what channel your tv will need to be on to use the sega.

Sega mega drive - how do I plug it into tv?


Ok, a few basics to hooking up your console. Firstly you should have two cords a power cord that plugs into the wall and into the back of the console. Another cord should also plug into the back of the console and the other end should be plugged into the back of the television into the slot called in. However if this plug is already taken by a vcr you can hook the cord from the sega up to the vcr in port. After it's all plugged in and the console and tv are on and it's directly hooked up to the tv then change the tv channel to 3 or 4 and you should have something on one of those channels. However if you hooked it up through the vcr then you have to go to the channel that normal has your vcr then change the channel on your vcr to 3 or 4. I think this is all you need to know good luck.
