My sega megadrive 1 and 2 won't turn on. the plugs are new and so is the tv visual lead. I have a mega cd 1 an 2 and that does not appear to turn on. is that because of the console? if so should i get the console repaired or just buy a new one? Thanks

SOURCE: sega megadrive 2 never comes to black screen just snowstorm

Ensure that the switch on the back of the unit is set to channel 3 or 4, and that your TV is tuned to this channel. Additionaly, make sure that the rf switch is properly wired in to your television and that no wires have come loose or fallen out.

SOURCE: Sega megadrive 2 that wont load

Just keep fiddling with it. I kept messing with the video cable, where it plugs into the back of the console. I got the "Licensed by Sega, etc." message for a few seconds before it went black again, turned it off, pulled out the cartridge then slammed it back in. Now all of the few carts I own are working with the console.

Nothing wrong with the tv or the cartages or even how you hooked it up

its the wire that connects the tv to the console, these some/a waire broken on the inside.

gotta get another one, or find the brake and twist it around till they meat then put some duck tape or something around it to keep it in place

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

Hi I have a Sega Megadrive 1 & Mega CD 1. It has wroked for years from new but it has got a problem within the last week. When turned on the conosles comes on as normal and you see a good and...


Well, Sega's aren't known to be long lasting, but if it isn't an issue with the console itself you could try checking all of your cords, assuring they are plugged in good and tight to both your console and screen. Faulty cords can easily be overlooked. If your discs aren't working, but you're hearing the music from different ones and no picture, it sounds like an issue with one of your video jacks, so make sure everything is properly plugged in.
Failing that, bring it to a retro gaming shop to have it looked at or test it at someone else's place.

the fuse has probably gone in it, thats a common problem with the sega cd's, you will have to replace the fuse on it, try looking up "sega cd model 2 fuse repair" in google and there should be some info/video's on the net to help you ;) I only know because I have the same problem lol

Just got a Sega Mega drive, connected to my plasma


Most old systems such as Mega Drive will come with an RF adaptor, which plugs into the back of the console and has a coaxial tip on the other end, to connect to the tv.

When you connect the coaxial end to the tv, you connect it to the round coax plug which is where you used to plug in your old cable tv hookup. It also might say Ant. or Antenna.

Turn on your megadrive and use your TVs input selector to change to either "antenna" or "tv" or "cable" input, or until you hit the input which displays your megadrive's signal.

Tip: use your TV's view options to change the input to a 4:3 or "not stretched" aspect ratio so that your old Fullscreen video games will not be stretched out wide on your new widescreen HDTV.

Good Luck!

I just aquired a sega megadrive 2 with all leads but no instructions. can you tell me how to set it up please? Michael


First plug the power plug into the mega drive and turn it on (there should be a red light showing that the megadrive is on)

Plug RF lead into the back of the mega drive and TV and make sure the switch is set at the megadrive side and not the ariel side, if you have a switch.

Now turn off mega drive, put a game into the slot and and then turn the console on.

Select a channel on your TV and tune it into the mega drive.

This should work.

How do i connect a sega mega drive 2 to a tv?


use the RF lead (plugs into the mini din at the back of the megadrive)
if you don't have the lead you might want to look at ebay for a replacement
of if you don't want the hastle of tuning your megadrive into your tv you could buy a scart lead from www.retro-cache.com

How do I set up a sega genesis?


here we go
This is a step by step with testing set up for the sega mega drive

first plug the power plug into the mega drive and turn it on (there should be a red LED light)

plug RF lead into the back of the TV and make sure the switch is set at the megadrive side and not the ariel side, if you have a switch. (or you can buy scarts from www.retro-cache.com)

Now turn off mega drive, put a game into the slot and and then turn the console on

Select a channel on your TV and re-tune it into the mega drive. (on some TV's the tuneing is around the C36 area if that is any help)

If you tune into a blank screen than turn the mega drive off, remove the game, clean it and replace the game and try again.
