I recently bought two scart leads that were designated Master System and Megadrive 1 compatible yet when I tried to connect to each machine the fit was extraordinarily tight, my previous lead messed up and was displaying purple where white should be so I thought I would buy a couple and use them on both my MD's and SMS's. Both my SMS 1's are European one of my MD's is also European, the other is Asian yet the problem exists on all systems, I have a composite lead that is compatible with both that fits fine as did my previous RGB lead. They both work but they are really hard to get in and I have never encountered this issue before, I certainly don't want to mess up the connections on the machines. Can anyone shed any light on this issue?
The first one was from Amazon, the second from eBay.
I bought one off eBay last year that was fine. I then bought one this year off the same seller and I had the same problem, it was very tight! Sent it back and he replaced with another that was fine, probably pot luck when you buy cheap.
