Yesterday, sounds and speeches were ok. Today, a fews kids came to play, and the following happened.

When I switch on the machine and start a game, I have the sounds and speeches. After 5 to 10 minutes, no more sound (extremely low sound), speeches are all ok. If I play with the pot, volume changes for speeches only.

I switch off the game and restart. Then again both dpeeches and sounds are ok. For 5 minutes, then the same problem happens again.

Does anyone have an idea about this ? Thank you

I have investigated on the web. Actually, the machine was on for about 1.30h with people playing on it. after that period of time, the problem occurred. It is said in a pinside or google post that there is a system which prevents from overheating and disable speeches.

Maybe it is what happened with sounds. Today I have been playing 20 minutes without problem.

Could it be a component on the audio board that is damaged or "tired" and which does no longer fulfill its job, with an abnormal increase of temperature ?

Thanks for your help
