Alright, I've got a question on one of my cocktails (Frogger).
I recently picked up a Frogger cocktail that turned on and looked good, but I had no sound on the machine. I found out what was thought earlier by me to be a bolt sticking out of the bottom of the machine was actually a volume knob all the way on the other side of the machine. I turned up the volume and unfortunately found out why the previous owner turned it off... It emits an annoying high pitched interference sound out of the speakers instead of the regular Frogger sounds and music. Now I have to find out why it's doing that.
I traced the volume control (cord) to a spot on the rom board where it plugs in. A cord with the white plug on the end is it and plugs in to a six-pin spot sticking out of the board. Taking out the plug cuts off the sound.
So, after seeing that the high pitched sound goes away (in fact, no sound comes through the speakers at all) if I unplug the white connector from the six-pin connector on the board, am I to assume the wire is bad? Or do I possibly have a bad chip on my board? I don't know anything about this stuff at all, so please bear with me if I don't use correct terminology and such.
Please help! I desperately want to hear the Frogger sounds and music on my machine! Thanks!
