I tried to turn on my 32X the other day, and it made a hissing sound. It will not load anything, although the screen does flicker when I turn the Genesis on. If I disconnect the power from the 32X, it doesn't make this hissing sound. This makes me think that there's something wrong with the AC adapter. It's really weird; I've never had a solid state console make a sound before. Either there's something wrong with the AC adapter, or there's something really fucked up in the 32X itself. It didn't seem to damage my Genesis or my monitor, though; they're still functioning. I'm hesitant to even try it again, though, because I don't want to cause damage.
