I think I am cursed with building my new Picade.
After a faulty screen which was kindly replaced by a brand new one and is working perfectly well now - thanks Pimoroni for your efficient help on this - I have some serious sound issues with the internal speakers.
If I plug the Raspberry Pi to headphones, sound is OK, same if I connect the Pi directly yo TV using HDMI, sound is perfectly OK.
Sound is set to ‘auto’ by the way in the config panel.
Sound is also ‘acceptable’ if I connect headphones to the dedicated headphone jack of the Picade PCB, although the sound is far less crisp and loud compared to the Pi, but still I can at least hear some sound from it.
However if I connect the Picade speakers to the Pi through the PCB, as instructed in the manual, then I get no sound at all. I have noticed that the sound jack connector on the Picade PCB is slightly loose and if I slightly press it down with my finger with the audio cord connected, then the Picade screen suddenly turns black, I get some sound from the loaded game for a few seconds or so, then the screen comes back to life but no sound at all is heard from the speakers.
I have attached a couple of images from the Picade PCB.
Please help on this, I am starting to get desperate to get my Picade work.
