Evening All,

My DESW has an audible buzz / hum. I'm aware that this is fairly common for Data East games, my previous DESW had it and this one has it too but is more prominent. Is anyone aware of anything I could do to fix / improve it? Any troubleshooting tips?

As always many thanks.

I used a small cheap power supply for an old Dell PC to supply the power to the sound board. Completely solved the problem and easy to remove if anyone prefers it completely original.

There is a good thread on Pinside about this.

I tried external PS on my Tommy. Made no difference :-(

I have looked into this off and on for years.

There still seems no sure fire fix that works for all.

Given up caring now, you don't notice it when playing a game anyway [emoji16]

On closer inspection I believe 85-90% of this relatively loud hum is coming from the transformer in the bottom of the cab and the other 15% is the same hum that is being passed to the speaker(s) seems more prominent in the right speaker.
