I turned on my TWD Pro the today but even when I was pressing the start button it wouldn't start. I unplugged and turned on again and the game started but now the sound coming from the two speakers on the panel are very faint and the subwoofer is not working at all.

I checked the wires on the sub and the other speakers to make sure they were connected.

Anyone know where I can start looking?

Thanks

I'd start reseating connectors. Game off and unplugged. Unplug and reconnect every connector from the power supply to the boards and any connectors and ribbon cables on the boards. Look carefully for corrosion or burnt pins while you're doing it.

Reseated all the connections on the boards. No dice. What else can I try?

And damage by the battery's.

The boards look great. One thing I've noticed that when I open the coin door the warning sounds sound loud and crisp but if I press the start button game is practically mute.

Reseated j10 on audio board a few times. Header pins look great.

Can't seem to locate led2 on the soundboard led 3 is blinking quickly.

Plot thickens. I took off the translite of my ST Pro this morning just to compare if the LED where all the same. Turn on TWD Pro and now it works fine. Now I'm really wondering what this intermittent problem is?

Problem is back. Sounds cuts mid game. Goes from loud to faint. Could this be a grounding issue?

Did you ever get this sorted? I’m having the same issue.

I unseated and reconnected the connections to the speakers I believe. AFter that it was back to normal. I have since sold the game.

I’m also having the same low sound…. I was an idiot pulled play field too far out and damaged speaker. Put new one and and same low sounds.. when I turn game on sub moves like it’s connected properly but just can’t figure it out. All fuses good and connectors solid
