Fuzzy picture and no sound

I cant get my sega to work. I can see a picture but it is fuzzy with no color just black white and grey, thats with the rf connector. Its an older genesis, the one with the volume control on it. When i use the av cables that come with it i just get a black screen with an occasional white streak and the only sound i get are bleaps.

    I have the same system, it's the real early one and it's not modified, it did have an AV output. I need some help as well because I get a fuzzy picture and only certain parts of the sound. I've got it cracked open right here but I can't see anything that's out of the ordinary.

If it has av cable inputs on the console then its a modified system, and chances are something is either loose inside or fried.

Black and white Picture Sega Master System 2


Is this one of those much older Sega systems with the RF connector that plugs into the incoming cable from outside and the TV?If it is,there should be a channel selector switch on the back,CH3 or CH4.Try the other channel.If it doesn't go away,your RF connector is on it's last legs.
Good luck and game on!

Why is the screen fuzzy?


Make sure that all of your wires are firmly connected. I am assuming you are using an RF adapter. Check whether the "Channel" switch is set to 3 or 4, and then make sure you TV is set to the same channel..

If this does not work, let me know and I will assist you further.

Fuzzy picture on TV and NES when new RF adapter is cconnected


i had the same problem, and it was the rf unit itself. to resolve this problem i went to radio shack and purchased a special connecter. one side is an rca (male) to rf (female). when attached to a standard peice of cable wire, it acts as an rf unit. Also works with the sega genesis. hope that helped

No idea why it's not working.


Well the RF Adaptors are not that great for the sega genny they seem to fail more times then not and if been sitting rolled up in a ball I would have to run a conclusion that the RF adaptor is pooched.

Another idea would pulling the top of the genny shell off and looking at where the RF jack is on the mainboard and looking to see if its burnt in any spots this could be the issue as well.

alot of people would still say its a cleaning issue either the game or the system needs cleaning but if you have done that already have you tryed using rubbing alcohal on a q-tip and run it along the carts contacts?

I ushally have a modified genesis laying around with A/V cables to be used instead of the RF cables that is another method you could try to if you into soldering at all or feel safe doing it. let me tell you besides fixing the controller port issue on a dreamcast the genesis AV mod is the easyest out there to do if you need or would like more info on this as well let me know and I will help you out

Also what model genny do you have model 1, 2 or 3?

dont forget to rate this solution thanks eh!

Cant get picture on tv from sega mega drive. concerned might be missing a part


Ok i have many sega systems and to connect a sega it sometimes depends on what version of the sega mega drive you have i will tell you how to connect your sega after you've already plugged in your power adapter. If there is a plug on the back of your sega that says RF out then you should have a TV out/ antenna in adapter. One end goes into your sega and the other TV out should go into your TV then if there is already an antenna in your TV unplug it and and plug it into your TV/ antenna adapter where it should say something like antenna in. Don't worry if you have cable or directv it will still work it just might be slightly fuzzy because of the old technology. If you dont have the RF out then you should have a plug in the back that says AV out and all you do is do the same thing only the TV/ antenna adapter you should have should be able to plug into the AV out plug. Any other concerns about your sega, like how to connect your sega CD to your sega console, or most of its other products just let me know and if this doesnt work let me know, thank you.
