    Well, for a temporary solution would be to wedge a piece of styrofoam in between the 32X and Genesis.

    I got the spacer, but it still won't work. I get power, but the TV just shows a blank screen. Either AV adaptor works fine when used with the Genesis alone. Any ideas? You can use a second Genesis AV adaptor for the 32X, right?

    Did you clean your 32X's cartridge slot and edge connector? If not, I recommend doing so. Here's the simplest ways to get the job done.

    Edge Connector:
    Grab some isopropyl alcohol and Q-tips. Wet a cotton swap in the rubbing alcohol, then wipe it back and forth along one side of the edge connector. Then switch to the dry swab and wipe back and forth along the same side. Repeat this step a few times until that side is clean. Then do all that on the other side of the edge connector, several times. Keep doing all that until the q-tip ends come out clean. Make sure to wait 5 or 10 minutes to let the rubbing alcohol evaporate before testing.

    Cartridge slot:
    Wet a cartridge's edge connector using a q-tip dipped in rubbing alcohol. Then insert and remove the cartridge from the slot several times. Wipe the cartridge off with a dry q-tip, then wet the cart again and repeat this procedure for 3 to 4 more times. Make sure to wait 5 or 10 minutes to let the rubbing alcohol evaporate before testing.

    I've got a Genesis cartridge cleaning kit. I'll try using that.

    I hate to say I told you so...

    ...no wait, I don't.

    I told you so.

    There, now that I've been a jerk about it, I can be helpful.

    CHECK. THE. RIBBON. CABLES.
    Seriously, they come out so easily. They're the number 1 reason for 32x deaths.

    It's aliiiiiive!

    It was indeed the ribbon cable. I enjoyed a nice game of Star Wars Arcade afterwards. Now, once I get some more money, I need to track down a copy of Knuckles Chaotix, one of the few console Sonic (or I guess "Sonic Universe" would be more appropriate) games I've never played.
