Expert:  Rick williams replied 7 years ago.
Well the first thing to try is the ribbon cables in the set all should be pulled and reinserted because they become intermitting and lose contact with the connector itself. here is a picture. also you must check the power supply there is a 2200uf capacitor and a 220uf capacitor, they are on the 6v line if you were to turn board over then you will see 6v stamp on the board thats the caps to check, if they are swollen on the top, then this is the problem. also these caps are cp150 and the one next to it. Good luck friend
