A few months back, the sound on my Gorgar started cutting out. It would usually be fine on startup, but halfway through a game, it would cut out; no hum from the speaker at all. I reflowed and replaced all the sound board connectors; the problem persisted. I sent my sound board to Clive at Coin-Op Cauldron; he gave it the full overhaul, but the problem still persists. Tonight, I reflowed all the connectors on my power board, but the problem is still occurring. I haven't yet replaced the connectors on my power board, simply because I need to order more connectors. However, it seems to me that if the problem was a power board connector, wiggling the connector would cause the sound to come back on, however briefly, but that isn't the case. No matter how I wiggle them around, the sound stays off. Does anyone have any suggestions for what to check next? Also, is it possible for a dying speaker to cause symptoms like this?
