Question about Sega Genesis Console

1 Answer

Picture scrolls up

I have the genesis hooked up to my Toshiba 57HX84 rear projection TV and when I turn it on the picture will scroll up the screen and be replaced by an image below it, and it will go on and on forever (sort of like tracking on a VCR). Seemed like a problem with a dirty something so I tried it on two other TVs, a CRT and an LCD and it works like a charm. I also have an Atari 2600 hooked up to the Toshiba and it works fine. Just seems like the Genesis hates that one TV (or vice versa). Any clue? Thanks!

    Im living at residence  and I just bought a genesis for 8$ at value village' I dont have a controller but it came with all the cords so i hooked it up into the tv in the common room its a relatively new tv I guess. and it turns on fine the I har the sega sega start up sound then the sonic music kicks in. The whole time all I can see are black and white stripes going up and down the screen like "bad vcr tracking". Ill try and find an older tv in my res or at the vv. Any other suggestions, I opened up my genesis and whipped it down with a glasses cleaner (no chemicals just the cloth) and screwed everything back on. any other suggestions? ps its not the game cause the system does the same thing with no game inserted.

    I am not sure the model, but my Toshiba TV does the same thing. I have Nintendo, Playstation 1, and Playstation 2 and they are all perfectly fine. Every other TV in the house plays the Sega perfect.

Look up your user manual, it sounds like your zoom feature has been activated to the max. I have a Zenith backlit LCD TV and it has a zoom feature you control from your remote. You could open up your on screen menu and find the place to reset the TV to factory settings that should clear up the problem.

Picture scrolls and is offset

Oops, nevermind. It's right there up top.

First off, try a TV reset. Leave it unplugged for 5+ minutes then try again.

If this doesn't work, I would recommend contacting RCA. There is no way to contact them as far as I can find, except for an online form to their customer service (there may be a contact number in your TV's manual):

Good luck,
