NEOSD PRO AES. No sound in menu or games...

28 May 2020, 14:23

My NEOSD PRO has no sound. No sound on the menu or games.
Can someone help me? I'm using a scart cable with sound output through the headset.
I don't have UniBios. With original cartridges the sound works perfectly.
Thx alot.

I found the problem.
I don't know why but if you use the sound from the headset it doesn't work with the scart cable.
I put the standard cable with audio in mono and the sound worked perfectly.
I will try another solution to use the scart cable with stereo.
The funny thing is that original games work without a problem.

What headset connection are you using?

Because the 3.5mm connector on the NeosD Pro is NOT an audio jack. It's the link cable connection.

Yes I know ... I used the console headset.

Let me make sure I understand.

With NeoSD Pro: You get no audio from the headphone jack on the front of your console, but do from the mono jack on the back?

With original games: You get audio from both headphone jack and mono jack?


I don't think that's possible. Unless there is some hardware issue with your Neo Geo console that would cause that to happen.

If that is actually what happens, then it sounds like there is something really wrong on the console. The NeoSD doesn't output audio any differently than a regular cart. It still routes through the same circuits internally. It actually makes me wonder if there is an issue with your headphone jack. I have seen those go bad, usually due to dirt build up.

1 - Yes
2 - Yes
3 - I thought about it.
4 - Forget it ... I'm using mono audio. Is very good.
5 - Thank you for responding so quickly.

It was probably the mod i did to remove the audio from the headset to scart cable. The curious thing is that original games did not give this problem. But forget. I'm using it in mono.

I just had this same thing happen to my NeoSD Pro. I had removed the cart to load a new game onto the SD card. Put the NeoSD back in and got no sound of any kind. No menu sound. No game sound. I am routing audio from the headphone jack into the Scart cable. I removed then re-seated the cart and it's working again. Very strange and somewhat concerning.
