Hi all, hope someone can point me in the right direction!
I recently acquired a Megadrive, cosmetically in decent condition. The PSU it came with was for a ZX Spectrum however with the Megadrive power connecter hacked on and taped, rather than the original Megadrive one. I don't have the PSU to hand as I'm writing so I'm not sure to its rated outputs. Also not sure what the power requirements of the Megadrive is.
I hooked the console up via RF to my 3 year old model LCD TV. I plugged in a cart (Road Rash 2) and powered the system up. The power led lights up on the console. I did a channel search on the TV to try and 'tune into' the Megadrive. No luck, didnt pick up anything.
I then put together a cable to tap into the megadrive's composite and audio outputs and hooked that up to the TV. Powered up the Megadrive. Once again the power LED lights on the Megadrive, but no picture / sound on the TV.
Could someone perhaps help me out with how I should approach diagnosing the problem? Your help is much appreciated!
