Hi All,

So I picked up a Space Station last week. It didn't have any sound (only a loud buzzing). As suggested I recapped the sound board and this fixed the issue. I have music and sound effects in both test and game play (as much as I can, the play field is in pieces). However one weird thing I have noticed, is the startup "BONG" the machine makes when turning it on. Normally all Williams games make the same tone, but this one makes one I have never heard before. I would assume this isn't normal, but I've never owned this game, so figured I would ask.

Here is a video of the Startup Tone: https://photos.app.goo.gl/2c6KxnbuAtbhNBMW7

Is this normal? If not, thoughts?

The startup tone on Space Station is actually unique. Nothing wrong with that bong lol

Awesome thanks! I was worried there was some weird chip or ROM issue. Never known Williams to do a unique startup sound (at least on the games I have owned).

Hey there! Got a moment?
