Suddenly my Starship Troopers is without any sound at all?

I have checkef all fuses in the backbox, and all cables seem to be fine...any sugesstions?

It could be your RAM in U4. I had a similar issue on my A13 and changing the RAM fixed it. It also fixed the problem for a fellow pinsider so it's worth a try

Ok, thanks for the tip, I will check that.

I will keep you updated!

Tried to replace U7 and U4. (U7 new) ( U4 the same).
Still no sound???

Do I need a new U4? ( If do where can I purchase this in Europe?)
Any other suggestions?

Hi Brian,

I would definitely try a new U4 as these chips are relatively cheap. Check the number on your chip and get the same thing from pinball center. The spec for the CPU/Sound Board says 6116 RAM part number 105-0052-05.


Good luck,

Still no sound.
When we check the Sound reset point on the board it is "Low"...the same test on Lost world is high - and when we swoap the boards the "lost world" board is working in Starship Troopers, and the "Starship" board is then not working in the lost world game..,
Any suggestion?
