When I try to hook my Sega Genesis up to my TV, why does nothing happen?


you should have a red light and if its on it should be working. I would just go on Amazon and buy a AV connector for the system, no need to use RF like its 1989 :)

Sega genesis wont start up


I had had a problem with my old Sega Genesis console the red light would not turn on even though I had turned the power on after a few se the voltage regulator got very hot really fast you could have a similar issue like I had for this if it is stone cold then it is dead. Try another ac adapter too see if it works if it does work then the ac adapter was bad. If there is no power light being on and it gets really hot really fast then it could be the capacitors that are causing it not to work or the voltage regulator is not working right. So you could buy a new one then.

How can I hook my sega genesis console to my Direct tv box?


Don't plug your Genesis into your satellite box. Plug your Sega into the back of your TV set. Get a Sega Genesis composite video cable. Run that cable from the mini-DIN connector on the back of your Sega to the RCA (yellow, red white) connectors on the back of your TV set. If you don't have any spare RCA connectors on your TV set, try a composite video switch.

Help connecting a Sega Genesis 16bit system!


What you will need to do with the RF cable is to take your incoming cable thast goes to your TV and screw it into one side of the RF box. Then the adjacent short cable wire that is on the other side needs to be screwed into your TV. The long end of the cord plugs into the back of the sgea unit. Good luck! Any other questions, feel free to ask.

don't panic
sometimes the LED goes on the Megadrive
so try to tune it in anyway. (clean a game and put it in)
also sometimes you can get a "Dry joint" at the power port at the back of the megadrive.
this is fixed by unscrewing the megadrive and a little solder on the each of the 3 joints.
