My LW3 has been down since August and my kids really want to play it but I'm having some DMD issues. I believe I've got my problem narrowed down and I need to either have my DMD Driver Board repaired or I need to buy a replacement.

Is there anyone on the board that repairs those that comes highly recommended? The board doesn't look like it has had any previous repairs.

I've seen that there is a Rottendog replacement for around $140. I've read reviews on their Power Supplys that are not so favorable. Does anyone have any thoughts on their DMD Driver Boards? I have only seen one used board for sale and the price was $130 via ebay. So the used route doesn't seem likely.

Clive at the Coin-op Caldron can troubleshoot and repair your DE DMD driver board. I have used Rottendog's DMD driver board for Williams WPC and it worked fine in them. I keep one as a spare for my WPC games.

Send it to Clive, he can fix it. Or, he will be able to tell you the board is fine and you need a new Display.

If it's one of the earlier ones that isn't all SMT, I imagine I could repair it. Send me a PM if you like.
