Just picked one up on ebay - see http://www.astralbase.com/arcade
and my sound is not working... do you know any good places to start on
looking into that? I get a "sound board interface error" upon running
the diagnostics. Only other items are minor... the power button on top
of the cabinet doesn't work and the metalic backing sheet behind the
black light is damaged.

Otherwise, everything on the game seems to work well. Had to clean it
top to bottom and replace every single light. I don't think it ever
had been taken apart before!

Was curious what kind of paint you used to re-do the sides of the
cabinet. Mine still has the stickers on but they are in super poor
shape so I am going to purchase the repro graphics.

Any tips or tricks you have would be greatly appreciated!

There was a post a few days back from Kelly Ray looking for Tron sites.
If you don't find them, just google and you will find just about
everything you need. I believe it may have been just in R.G.V.A.C.

"sound board interface error"

Hey Pat:

Found most info on things and have been googling for weeks... but cant
find much info on what specifically to check re: the sound board error
and of all things, that's the one I want to fix most!

I don't have a specific link or knowledge of a solution to this
particular problem. If I discover it in my repair or spy hunter and/or
Satan's hollow, I iwll post it here.

Well, I reseated all of the chips, cleaned the board and still
nothing... so I sent to Eldorado Games and for $90, they repaired the
board and had it back to me in a weeks time. Installed and sound is up
and running again. Wish I understood more about this and what exactly
went bad, but for the money, it was worth it.
