    I have a samsung le32a456c2d (module number) and i am having trouble connecting my master system 2 to the tv. I have connected the master system to the power socket, and also connected the rf cable to the tv and the tv cable to the rf switch. I have flicked through the channels i think it could be on and having no luck. Is there anything i am doing wrong?

Hi, Sega master system 2 are connected to your TV via an RF cable. One end is RCA which connects to your console the other end is Pal which connects to you TV's antenna inlet if your using the sega RF switch then the RF switch connects to your antenna inlet on your TV and you should have a RCA to RCA cable which connects the console to the switch. Please note these cables and power adaptors can in some cases be faulty. These console are manually tune to VHF-1 frequency so make sure your TV has this frequency. some do tune to UHF but most tune to VHF-1 if you need parts or what your console modified to allow it to connect to your TV's AV inlet or S-Video visit www.gameoz.com.au as they stock a huge range of Retro gear.

    i'm not sure if you're still on this site, but if so: i recently got a SMS 2 but i have no cables for it. i have plenty of ac cables of the right voltage and want to test that it works before i bother buying the RF cable. so my question is, when running does the SMS 2 make any sound?
    also, if i sorted out the power issue, is it possible to test if the video works using the video plug of an RCA cable? as this is the same shape plug.
    thanks for any help

This is how you hook it up. you put in the AC adaptor (the one that plugs into the wall) into the outlet. of course though you have to put the of the ac adaptor (small end) into the Sega. then you put the rf modulator (cable input) into the back of the tvs cable. and of course you put the end into the system. it will probablly be channel 3 you have to turn the tv too. if not, try channel 4. turn it on and see if the sega symbol appears. if you could tell me what year the tv was made in then that would help too, if the steps i gave you didn't work. hope it worked.

I have just found my old sega master system and would like 2 play it on my plasma tv, however i have found it difficult 2 install. any hits would b helpful


You need to hook it up to one of the inputs and remeber the input being used so you can change your plasma tv to it so when you turn on your sega master system the screen will show up.
Here is a video from youtube that shows you exactly how to do it. Sega Master System plasma hookup.

Needing instructions to set up


If I remember correctly the master system only has one lead that looks a bit like an antenna connection, one goes into the back of the console and the other goes into the antenna input on the tv.

Then you need to plug the console in to mains outlet turn it on and tune in your tv to pick it up. I normally plug it into the antenna outlet and switch my channel on to the same channel that picks up the vcr, and it works

BOX THINGY


the box is a RF switching box
the lead you require is a phono to ariel lead (megadrive, master system or any old computer will do)
or if you get an old video lead and cut of one end and wire a phono plug to it it will also work.
or you try ebay
http://shop.ebay.co.uk/items/_W0QQ_dmptZUKQ5fVideoGamesQ5fVideoGameAccessoriesQ5fVideoGameAccessoriesQ5fJN?_nkw=sega+rf++Master+System++&_sacat=0&_fromfsb=&_trksid=m270.l1313&_odkw=sega+rf&_osacat=0

a basic lead for £2.50
replacments upto £10
both work

I am trying to locate a auto rf switch box for my sega master system 2


Looks as if Nesfixxa400 has never seen athe back of a Mastersystem 2, there is only an rf lead port!
so you are looking for a RF splitter
you can seach for the following
master system rf switch box
Megadrive 1 rf lead with switch box
I also remeber at a 99p shop seeing a 3 way TV switching box
search for MK-3088 on ebay (below) they are compatable

Sega master system 2 setup - can't get picture


most likely problem is that your tv isn't tuned to the sega - you can fix this by going into the tv menu and tuning it manually

Sega master system


You need an RF Switch. Any kind will do. Sega model 3035 came with your console. Sega model 1603 or Nintendo NES-003 will also work. The RCA plug goes in the back of the console and the lead that looks like cable tv goes on the tv. If your tv does not have the right connection you can purchase an a/v cable that will work.
