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!

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.

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.

My megadrive2 ac/dc adaptor keeps springing out the back and hence no power how do i fix this?


a few things to try. You can get another known working ac adaptor and see if that springs out of the back as well so you know at that point its not an AC Adapter problem if it does.

If the AC Adapters aren't staying in place then the DC Jack on the megadrive is faulty and it would be a matter of finding a DC Jack for the megadrive 2 or find a faulty megadrive 2 where the dc jack is good.

Then if you have soldering skills, you can take the good one off of the one machine and take the bad one off of the other megadrive 2 and replace it with good dc jack. Basicially unsoldering the good one and the bad one and soldering the good one onto your megadrive machine.

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

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.
