I’m needing some guidance. I’m brand new to pinball and don’t know much at all. To put into perspective... My GI lights went out on my machine and it took me a while but I found where the GI fuse was, bought a fuse, and replaced it and it worked. I was really proud of myself. Haha. So I’m a complete novice. So here’s my problem. My background music is out on my Firepower. I read the post about the guy who had all his sounds out but for me it’s just the background music. All my switch sounds, callouts, voice callouts work. It’s just the background sound that plays throughout the game that doesn’t work. Weird. I can’t find anyone that’s had that exact problem. I’ve run the diagnostic but that only covers all the switch sounds and they work. So I’m at a loss. Any help for a complete novice???

Boy, does this bring back a memory (albeit a hazy one, hope I have all this straight) . . .

Back at my old Indiana arcade, we were shipped a #firepower from another location that did the same thing, and I remember to my surprise happening across a game adjustment it had that controlled background together w/some other function.

Check adjustment function 35. If it's set to 00, 01, 02 or 03, try changing it to 10, 11, 12 or 13 respectively (factory is 12).

(This is on page 4 of the manual; if you don't have one, you can view/download it here: http://www.firepowerpinball.com/2ya/downloads/InstructionBooklet.pdf)

Hope this helps.

You are a lifesaver!! I’m at work and just saw this so I haven’t tried it, but I was messing with function 35 and that’s got to be it. Thank you so much

It's funny how random stuff like this gets stuck in your head over the years .

I just got a new replacement sound board and I don't hear that humming ship idle sound(I believe that's what you're describing).
I'm hoping a setting change fixes it. I wasn't aware that it was something you could change.
Thanks for starting this thread, it helped me find the answer super fast.

Side note when I first got my Firepower up and running I hated that constant wub wub wub wub wub noise but now I freaking love it. Makes me think I’m walking up to some kind of idling space motorcycle waiting to go full throttle.

That setting change worked great and now I have that sound as well. It's a great sound. I like how it goes up and down during play. Gets higher pitched, then lower. Just a really cool ship sound.
