Genesis won't play video.

So my genesis 2 wont play the games. I've cleaned it with a credit card and cloth/alcohol and the games. All it does is flash around the screen a few times and goes black. I don't know what's wrong.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

You may have a bad video cable. Get a replacement one and try it out.

If it continues to persist, there may be either a failing component on the board (maybe the VDP?), or the connector itself for the AV cable is breaking or failing.
