Question about Sega Genesis 2 Console

1 Answer

If someone has an original Sega Genesis 2 power supply, can you tell me the exact volts, amps and polarity that uses? I know there's a lot of adequate replacements, but I want to use one that matches Sega specs exactly. Thanks.

When i plug in me sega genesis and plug it in to the t.v. no screen comes up not even a black screen how do i fix it

Check these things first:

1. The power supply puts out enough voltage and works okay.

2. Channel selector switch is in the channel 3 position.

3. Replace the AV/RF cable with a known good working one.

Can you use a 12v dc adapter as a power supply for a sega 16 bit console?

It depends on the power requirements of the consol. I used a universal power supply once with great success. Sorry I don't remember what brand it was or what the power requirments are for the genesis, (it was 10 or 12 years ago) but if I remember right the info should be embossed into the bottom of the console if not let me know and I will try to find it for you.

Good luck.
