After taking mine apart to update, I can no longer get it working again without garbled sound.
Reseated everything five or six times. Everything looks flush, the reinforcement boards are in place, so no pins are bent broken. I've never put the lid back on, so that isn't putting any pressure on mine.
Do you do some fiddling whilst it's running, to get it working again, or just reseat everything whilst it's off?
Re the garbled sound, I check the smaller PCB pins and also the connection to the interconnect with the main board [If someone could replace that with a cable rather than a fixed rigid interface, i feel that this would fix 99% of the problems.
Because the way it fixes to both pcb's (rigid but floating connection which aint great), you may find that it sits a little bit off to one side, I then try to straighten it out, but at the same time keep the pressure on the contacts to the B Board, usually this fixes it.
When I was testing this, I must have done this at least a half a dozen times, and each time I managed to get it working (albeit outside of the case).
Sometimes the graphics would go off and that means that the contacts were giving bias to the smaller board, so I had to angle it back towards the main board, and this then either fixed it, or fixed the graphics but cause the garbled sound.
The wierd thing is that sometimes i would turn it on and try to adjust it 'on the fly' if it wasn't running properly, and nothing would happen whilst it was running, but upon turning it off and on it would then change.
So far I see the following;
Solid colour = bad connection with A Board.
Screwed Graphics = check pins from main Pcb & interconnect.
Garbled sound = check interconnect & also pins from the small pcb.
I have also found that crying and swearing helps too.
