Don't give up so easily. Any sound on the Jag spinning cube intro?? You could reset the cartridges you have(check the instruction manuals here on AA(press*+#+option or pause on the title screen)), you could ditch the known to be terrible RF cable and get a composite connection cable, you could open it up and look for blown sound chips/caps. search here in AA jag forum for U38, sound chip replacement or caps blown or wrong PS/. try a different monitor. turn the sound levels to max on the games, monitor/audio. clean the cart port and edge connectors with alcohol.

If you have sound during the the spinning cube start-up screen, then the sound of your cart is turned off in the sound settings of the cart.

 

If the spinning cube start-up screen has also no sound then it is another problem.

Is the Jaguar a PAL Jaguar? If so which PAL (UK or mainland Europe). The sound carrier of PAL UK/EU is different. So a UK Jaguar on a EU TV and visa versa may not have sound if the TV does not support the PAL version of the other region.

 

Best is to use a S-Video cable (or when in Europe an RGB scart cable). Then sound/image is transferred without RF modulation resulting in a much better picture and sound. This will also make clear if the sound problem is in the RF modulation.

 

I have a 7800 with a broken RF modulator. It still gives an image but no sound. But via the home-made composite video connection it still has sound. Thus it is possible that the sound part of the modulator is broken.
