Question about Sega Genesis Console

1 Answer

Slight picture, no sound

Well, I just bought a new RF adapter off ebay and was SO glad that it came in today. When I hooked up my genesis (model 2) to the tv, you can see and make out some things on the screen (such as the sega logo) but the screen is all blurry and no sound comes through.

    well, it's not the TV, because the nintendo 64 runs through the same cable as the genesis and that works fine.

1 you need to fine tune your tv correctly

2 the lead you have may be worn and have a poor signal coming through

Also you might like to upgrade to an RGB Scart

My sega genesis has a clear picture but static sound can someone help?


Try an older TV set. I am not joking. It might very well be the case that newer TV sets/high-end TV systems can't handle the signals of the older video game consoles. Because the newr tv;s don't have the signal transfer inside of them to make the old consoles work so you could use the genesis av cables to hook up to a digital tv instead of the rf switch.

Sega Genesis 3 has horrible sound quality.


Well it could be that the av cables or the rf switches which ones you are using might be having problems so try a new av cable or rf swtich to see if it makes a difference. If still the aduio is not work there might be an internal issue with the console that should setup a red warning flag like the sound part inside of the console is broken then.
6 STARS IF THIS SOLOUTION IS HELPING.

Hi, get your hands on a new AV cable you will notice a great difference in picture quality compared to the RF switch. see www.gameoz.com.au as they stock the cable you require. They also can modify the console with a s-video out put which would be one of the best picture quality possable available from one of these retro consoles

Sega Genesis Video Problem


Maybe you are supposed to be on Channel 4. There should be a 3-4 switch on your RF adapter. Try wiggling the video connection in the back of your genesis and see if that fixes anything, it might be a lose port, in which case you have to wrap the cable underneath the genesis or something heavy to keep it at a working angle (if you find a working angle).

It is also possible your RF cable is bad. They aren't that much on ebay, but make sure you buy one for your model (there are 2 models of genesis and they use different RF cables)

I hope this helps somewhat.

Bad picture with Sega Genesis model 1


Taking your problem in a whole new direction, why don't you try purchasing an 8 or 9-pin (depending on the type of Genesis you have) DIN RCA cable. This will improve picture and sound, and you won't have to worry about malfunctioning RF converters. Your problem sounds like the RF adapters are inadequate.

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

Problem with the 1st generation sega genesis


If the screen changes (From snow to black or something) when the console is turned on it sound like the console is partially working. Try cleaning the Cardridge pins que tip and some sort of cleaning fluid.

Once this is done insert and eject the cartridge several times then repeat the cleaning process on the cartridge. Hope this helps.
