Sega CD Gen1 Tip/Info


Just in case anyone has an issue similar, I figured I'd post this. If you have a Generation 1 Sega CD and when you start the unit the Sega logo doesn't appear, but the planet background shows up , you press reset and it asks for a CD,you have a loose ribbon cable. The ribbon cable has a heavy ferrite magnet on it, and if the unit is older and has been moved around, the weight of the magnet will disconnect the cable. It's really easy to re-insert by hand, but just something to know about...
