Any Sega Genesis repair gurus?
Posted 19 May 2008 - 08:05 PM
The only problem I've run into is that the Genesis doesn't work!
The red power LED does come on, and the screen goes black (from static).
I'm using a standard RF adapter (I know, it's crap, but it's what I've got ATM), and have tried checking to see if the games are actually running and it's just not outputting video (by checking the sound via the headphone jack).
It's a standard USA Model 1 Genesis: Model No. 1601, I'm using the proper power supply for it -- MK-1602.
I've tried multiple cartridges, checked the cartridge connector on the PCB, and traced a few of the lines.
The only questionable thing I've seen is a discoloration on the lines around IC4.
I know an e-bay/amazon/whatever one is cheap, but I really hate to see old hardware get scrapped (I cobbled two Atari 2600s together for this reason).
Anyway, I guess my question is -- any advice on what to try and get this little beastie running?
