Sega Genesis 2 will not boot, even though the power light comes on

My system worked fine recently, but today I powered it up and the BIOS screen wouldn’t show up. I disassembled the system, and all the inputs seemed to be soldered correctly. Is there something I might have overlooked, or might it be something related to the A/V cable? (The cable is an RF modulator cable, by the way.)

Can you open up the unit? Does the motherboard smell like fish/fishy? Bad caps are a common problem on Genesis/Mega Drive units.


@andrewsawesome I'm currently away from home, but when I get back on the weekend, I'll give it a check. I opened it up, but I didn't think to smell it.

There might be something really wrong with your motherboard. Take apart the console and check for grime, dead or corroded caps, and corrosion. Maybe check the CPU/GPU?

When I took it apart, I didn't see anything wrong with it.


Try replacing the caps. The caps might be dead entirely.


Also, there might be something really wrong with the board. Maybe, try getting a replacement board here:
