I have a problem with the machine which I tried to solve in the last few weeks but could not. If someone can help me, I'll be most grateful.
The 'music' stops in the middle of the game.
Only the 'noise' remains. In 'noise' I mean the reaction of the machine to the ball, for example, the sound of dinosaurs when the ball pass in the inlanes or when a new Screen starts.
Then after some time, the music returns.
Then disappears again.
Many times, the machine even restarts itself in the middle of a game.
This is the problem.
I tried to diagnose:
First thing, I looked at all the wires connecting to the speakers and replaced the ones that were very damaged. However, the problem remained.
Second, I disconnected (I actually cut) the 4 wires connecting to the header speakers (2 wires to each speaker), so actually these 2 speakers were disconnected and only the cabinet speaker was wired and working. The problem still happened.
Third, I also disconnected the wires to the cabinet speaker. Now the game had no speakers and it played without noise.
The problem disappeared. At least the problem of the machine restarting itself as there was no music and no 'noise' that could disappear anyway
Fourth, I wired again the header speakers.
I must tell you that it caused the machine to sound very 'robotic', metallic and unpleasant.
But as regard to the problem it returned. The music disappeared during play and the machine restarted itself.
What do you suggest me to do next? What should I look for? How will you go on and diagnosed?
Any help will be appreciated
