I am out of ideas with my Bally Cheap squeak for my Lady Luck. Here is the short version of its history:
The volume was wonky when I purchased the game. It seemed to randomly get louder and softer. One day it stopped working. I changed the volume control in the coin door. The sound still did not work.
Next I recapped the sound board, no luck.
Next I diagnosed an issue with the cpu on chip on the sound board. I changed the chip and there was sound! I didn’t play the game for some time, the sound was gone again.
Next, I replaced the volume control in the coin door with the same pot that came with the game. The sound worked when it was wired incorrectly for a few days. After some friendly pinside help, I found out that the pot that came with the game was incorrect. I replace with the specified pot. Over the course of this time, the sound stopped working again.
I have recently burned new sound roms, tested the continuity of the roms to the board, and rigged up a stereo speaker to the game. Still no sound. When I press the red sound test on the sound board I get the right noise through the speaker.
I appreciate any help or ideas to fix this issue. I have spent way to much time on it. Thank you in advance.
