OK, I need some help or idea's concering a really old Sega Mega Drive 2. LOL.

I just pulled it out of the cupboard that its been living in for the past 8years, And for some reason I would like to get it all going again so I can play some of the classic games.

The main reason its been packed away for so long is because the plug that plugs into the A/V output and goes to the RF unit has snapped off. Its just wires.

There are 4 wires sticking out, they are yellow, red, white and one thats just a bare wire, I belive that Yellow would be your video, red and white are sound, and the bare wire would be the negative for the lot.

I got pictures to show what it looks like, but i have no idea how to upload them on here.

But back to the point,

On the A/V out port it has nine small holes where the plug goes, and around those is a round steel negative termainal, (like a ps/2 port)
I mainly want to know if any one has an idea on witch hole is what, and what wire goes where in those holes,

Any idea's?

Try this..

Usually Yellow is Video, Red and white are audio. Black is ground.

YES!

thank you so much!, got it going! Just wired up some old ps2 RCA Cables to it so now I am now able to use it on a newer tv's instead of having to use the RF Unit.

It so good being able to play some of the old classic games I had lying around, such as sonic 2, cool spot, desert stike, virtual pinball, and much more

Thanks
