Question about Sega Genesis Console
I just got a practically new Sega Genesis off Ebay and it seems to go through phases. It displays a thin horizontal line across the top of the screen. This line isn't there all the time but it always gradually appears over time when I play a game, usually getting thicker. When I switch to another game it's still there. Sometimes it's already there when I first turn on the system after not playing it for a while. I don't know if this is a normal thing for a first generation Sega Genesis (1991 model that comes with Sonic 1) but it gets me wondering. Most people wouldn't care about it but I just would like to know if it's normal. I used to have a Sega Genesis years ago and I played it on rounded cornered and sided TVs that would hide the line if the line was normal, but now with a strait-cornered TV I can see it. Could you tell me anything about this line, if it's normal or not for a practically new (Very new really) Sega Genesis? Thank you.
