I had the computer in my pin2000 repaired. Prior to this, I have never had any sound problems. When I reinstalled the computer, I had no audio but lots of loud crackling. I had read that the crackling is caused by the wires being bundled. I unbundled the sound wires and this did not solve the problem.
In trying to figure out the problem, I realized that (1) the sound will not come on if the fluorescent light for the translight is not on and (2) the sound will come on as long as both my hands are touching the LCD frame that the fluorescent light on which the fluorescent light is mounted.
I tried running a wire from the ground straps to the LCD frame but there was no change. I don't see that there are any wires touching the LCD frame.
Any help or ideas? Thanks in advance.
