As a general rule:

affect = verb
effect = noun

"The sound effects were affected by the fact that the tannoy doesn't work"

There is a case where you can use "effect" as a verb, but it has a subtly different meaning - cause rather than alteration - for example "Tisdale effected a tactical change in City's formation", as opposed to "Tisdale's tactical changes affected City's formation".
Oi... are you nicking my job ?
