Hey Pin Folks,
Still trying to work out a few issues with my Totem machine. One of the insidious ones involves it not wanting to start the game when I hit the front button. Instead I get a taunting whistling sound. Mind you this only happens some of the time (after a successful boot up sequence) but it seems to happen most often after turning the machine on after it's been off for a while. In addition, once it does start any subsequent games seem to start fine.
A little background to give people the full context. The dude I bought it off of performed this mod on it to effectively put it in free play:
I emailed him and he responded with this:
"I have seen it on other system 1 machines if a ground wire is not making a good connection on the MPU. One of the connectors should be reseated possibly"
I also added a small movie clip of the phenomenon so we're all speaking the same language:
Anybody got any ideas, things to try, etc?
