Control pad


Control pad's are generally all or nothing devices, they either work or they're dead. However with a console of this vintage there are a few things that can cause this kind of issue and therefor a couple things you can do to try and resolve it. 1: Clean the serial ports and plugs (the ports and plugs that connect the pads to the console) with an air duster. Air dusters are cans of compressed air with a long nozzle and are available from most computer, electronics and hardware stores. Clean both serial ports even if you're only using one. 2: if cleaning doesn't work try unplugging the power cable, removing the console's casing and touching a hot soldering iron to the base of each of the pins that connect the serial ports to the PCB (Printed Circuit Board) in tern to re-solder them without using any extra solder, if you find that you do need more solder be sparing. You can see a pictorial guide to disassembling a Sega Genesis here www.takeitapart.net/archives/sega-genesis/ click the pictures to see a larger image. Lastly if you know anyone else who's in to retro-gaming swap a control pad with them to see if your pad works on there Sega Genesis and there pad works on yours. If you find the pad actually is dead it's not the end of the world, there are a few around on popular auction sites, retro gaming sites and specialist game stores pretty cheaply.

The audio on my sega genises 2 doesn't work, and it's not the cable because ive tried different ones, is there any way i can fix it?


Well it might be an internal issue with the console like the parts inside of the console that
allows there to be sound and controlls the sound might be broken or you could buy a new ac adapter to see if it makes a difference.

Bought a Sega Genesis on ebay. It displays the games correctly but will not respond to the controller. The controller has been tested to work with another system. What could be causing this?


Its the controller ports inside of the system that controlls the controllers to function is broken or loose then and needs to be resoldered. I had a problem with my sega after i resoldered the 2nd controller port it worked again then.

I have a sega genesis model two. My controller 2 port works completely fine, but my controller 1 port does not work. How do i fix this?


Unfortunately you would have to take apart the system are-solder in a new controller port. This is definitely not easy to do. Noone really does repairs on these units anymore, so it may be cheapest just to replace it with one from ebay.

Hope this helps!

Game console having wire trouble connecting to controller?


Most likely the controller port is bad on your system and you need it repair or a replaced system. There are also 3 different licensed versions of sega genesis so each one is different to repair.
