i think i still have my spare sound board and michael's as well - i'll try different variations tomorrow. just to make sure: the sound board is the one above the voice board, right?
all i need is ... PONG - and a select few others: TOUCH ME, DRAGON'S LAIR, JOUST, ROBOTRON, MR DO, SAN FRANCISCO RUSH THE ROCK!!!

Yes sir !

As far as I understand this mixes in the sound of the voice board. Not 100% sure though, but worth the try !

Did you check the voltages on the voice board? If I didn't misread it's the only one which needs -12V, so maybe it's off or too low.

i've mixed up and tested the boards in various combinations - still the same: no speech, only sound!

Did you check the voltages on the voice board? If I didn't misread it's the only one which needs -12V, so maybe it's off or too low.

after that, i did what sascha said and tested the voltages on the voice board. +5V is a little bit low with 4.93, BUT ...

... -12V measures in with -20V :o :shock: :o :shock: :o :shock: (no matter which boards i have installed!)

1) Relax
2) Check the manual.

Heheheheh.....no just that you need to learn to read the schematics a bit :)

The -12V is unregulated (URG) as indicated on the Power Supply schematics and also on the wiring diagram. As you can see it's indicating a value of between -14.5V and -25V. So the value you measure is fine if you measure it on or near the connector.

HOWEVER there's an error on the voiceboard schematic as it says REG (pin J3-1) there which would make you believe it's a -12V regulated voltage.

What do you read if you measure at TP1 ? Acc. to the schematic it should be -10V there (the zenerdiode CR1 is regulating the voltage)

guess what? i've just turned on the machine to measure what andré told me and ... the voices are back :) 8)

don't know what's up with that game, but i'm extremely happy about it!

@andré: unfortunately, the discoloration of the monitor is still there ... anything i can do?

As you know, Berzerk is a haunted game. Two players died after setting a very high score with 666 in them and one player turned into a pedophile so.... we're lucky to be alive. ;D ;D ;D

I still guess connection problems...maybe the power connector ?

You can check if the wires are tight in the connectors. Check the connector on the voice-board, on the capacitor (filter) board and the PSU.

Edit: my bad, the voltage wires run directly from the PSU to the voiceboard, not through the capacitor (filter) board.

I have seen a bezerk pcb at andre's place, what a beast.  ;D I'm sure you guy's will get it working soon and then its going to be extra rewarding.
