Topic: Sound Problems - Intermittant
Since I've been playing with the chumb there have been instances where the audio will cut out with a pop. After this happens the chumby will not play sounds except for a much distorted click from the touchscreen click option being on, though this sound is often delayed by a half a second or so. There is a faint static sound from the rear right speaker but this is intermittent. Headphones seem affected also.
* Edit: Forgot to mention - Rebooting restores functionality.
Seems to me like a hardware issue, maybe a capacitor in the speaker driving circuit?
It happens extremely rarely, but naturally I'm hesitant to use this as an alarm clock if I can't trust the speakers.
Can anyone offer any advice? I'm quite capable of replacing any components be they through hole or SMD, just want to make sure I'm on the right track.
