I had my VSU-100 serviced but it’s not working, so I’m wondering if the SB-300 is set to use it. In researching, I’ve read the sound board needed a jumper for the speech board to work. Mine has no jumper, so is this the issue? Also, here is a photo of my connectors to see if the wires are in the right place. Any help would be appreciated.

You need to take your sb300 out and verify between the connections show in pinwiki for continuity - some of the later boards have traces for it AFAIK. If not, just add the jumper as pictured.

That was it. I needed the jumper. All works now!

Many thanks!
