thanks for the prompt response.
ok. I’ve tried an alternative firmware and it didnt fix the problem.
I’ve also double checked the wires to make sure nothing was being shorted.
However, i noticed something odd. When i plugged in my headphones, i can hear sound from the speakers and also from the headphones. Is this normal ? I guess i was expecting the sound to only come out of the headphones only.
But the good news, is that the volume from the speaker is stable when the headphones are plugged in. It doesnt automatically decrease back to 0.
so here is what i have at the moment,
with headphones plugged in. The sound from the speakers work fine. I can adjust the volume up and down using the buttons. The sound from the speakers do not automatically decrease, which is good.
with the headphones unplugged. The sound from the speakers decrease to zero every few seconds. I’ll then have to press the ‘volume up’ button to get some sound again, but then decreases back to zero after about 5 or 6 seconds.
do you think the picade board could be faulty?
