I recently bought a Jungle Lord. Everything was working fine but then I started hearing a loud static noise. The static only occurs on the speech side of the game and is somewhat random. The normal game sounds are fine. I cleaned and reseated all removable chips on both sound boards and reflowed solder on the entire speech board. After that, everything was working fine for a couple hours but then the same static issue returned. Another strange thing that happened during a game, I did a slap save and the synthesized sounds switched to the beeps and boops.
From my research I'm guessing my next step is to replace the ribbon cable between the speech and sound board but I cant find one online to purchase. Does anyone know where I could buy one?
Below is a video of the problem.
