Question about Sega Genesis Console

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.

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!

I searched and Sega themselves do not deal with older systems,however here is a phone number to the place that can probably help.They are contracted for the older systems I guess.It is called an RF connector or RF cable too.(714)836-4981.I don't see your system on the list on the link but it wasn't on Sega.com either.
http://sega-parts.com/ is the older systems link.
Sega's main number is 1-800-USA-SEGA but good luck trying to actually talk to someone.No surprise there huh?
Good luck and game on!

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!

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.
