Finally got my Sega Genesis hooked up to my TV and discovered it doesn't seem to turn on at all. The little red power light won't even light up. Wondering if anybody knows common issues that would cause this problem. It's a brand new power cable, so I doubt that's the cause.
This console was a gift from a friend, and I'd hate to have to tell them they accidentally gifted me a lemon.
Sorry to hear that.
If it helps, a similar thing happens to my SNES occasionally. It might just be a coincidence or chance, but sometimes it helps to flip the plug upside down. Probably won't work for you but hey, worth a shot.
