With no regular frequency, the volume on my Attack from Mars will go to full blast mid-game. Once the ball I'm on drains, the volume goes back to normal.
This has happened two or three times over the last six months, but over the last two weeks, it's happening quite a bit.
Other issues worth mentioning that I've noticed starting within the last two weeks (may or may not be related):
1. My Bill Ung UFO mod LEDs aren't all lit--each saucer has 4 lights lit (two lit pairs opposite from each other) and 4 very faded. Bill's been very helpful troubleshooting, and I swapped some transistors and ICs with no luck, but I'm not convinced it the UFO board at this point.
2. My 12v LEDs (both regulated and unregulated) on the driver board are both quite dimmer than the 5, 20, etc. But the test points all measure fine.
I've tried reseating ribbon cables, and I'm not seeing any obvious issues on my boards (at least that haven't been there already). None of the capacitors look swollen either.
Thanks a lot for any help!
EDIT: Also, I've upgraded the sound chip to the latest rev.
