  1. Sticky: Looking at this...

    Looking at this https://en.retrogamesupply.com/products/power-supply-for-sega-megadrive-genesis-1 , the original power supply is 9 to 10V and capable of delivering 1.2A.
    Your power supply is not...
  2. Sticky: I don't think changing your voltage reg would...

    I don't think changing your voltage reg would cause something like that. My guess is your power supply is under too much load.
    Anything getting hot in there when powering it up?
  3. Sticky: It's best to try with another 9V power supply...

    It's best to try with another 9V power supply just to rule out that yours is dead or not.
    Best case scenario it's your power supply.
    Worst case something is drawing to much current and that's why...
  4. Sticky: If you're only dealing with digital signals,...

    If you're only dealing with digital signals, low/high, then a cheap logic analyzer might be better (see aliexpress).
    You can probably find some schematic on google to make a digital signal out of...

    Did the same thing with a Sega Mega-CD that sat in a corner for a year or 2, although it wasn't used for salvage parts.
    Couldn't get it to work the first days I tried and gave up. Later I managed...

    4.45V is really low IMO. What's your input voltage?
    Does the 5V regulator get hot, or anything else on the 5V getting hot?

    Not sure how to check the oscillator without an oscilloscope. If you...

    As segasonicfan mentioned, you might have H-sync issues, but those issues can be due to bad caps not working properly and not filtering power rails or other as well as they used to.

    20 year old CRT? Open it up and check for bulging capacitors.
  9. Sticky: Check polarity on the capacitors you installed,...

    Check polarity on the capacitors you installed, maybe you misplaced one.
    There are schematics available online.
    Measure voltage to see if that's ok too.

    Glad I could help :).


    For that blob of solder try using desoldering wick, costs a penny online and should do the trick.

    Whenever the MD is turned on, there's 9V going to a transistor on the Mega-CD, which switches the power going to the 5V linear voltage regulator.
    This 9V from the MD is hardwired if I remember...

    That looks like just a scratch on the trace. Test it with your meter on diode mode.

    One thing I can see is that the 5th pin of the IC next to that scratch doesn't look like it's soldered very...

    If I ever do that (probably not), I'd obviously use the service manual and my scope, no worries.

    Can't really seem to find a schematic for the CDX so it's not going to be easy to repair.
    The good thing is you have 2 ports so you can measure on the working port and compare it with the...

    I think you wouldn't want mods to be "destructive" of the motherboard. Destructive might be a big word here, but you never know who's using a soldering iron.
    Also, the mod looks fairly easy to...
