Got a Batman Forever I picked up broken & have been working to get it running for a buddy in town. It's up, but no display. I've set up a bench test area to try & bring it up in attract, but still no display. So not sure now if I've got a bad display, bad controller board, a bad ribbon cable or cables. Knowing if the display even works would help. I'd love to plug my display up to someone's machine so I can see if it's out gassed. If it works at least I can narrow down where my problem lies. I'm in Austin, Tx. Please shoot me an email if you've got a machine that uses those displays & are in my area.

Check your cable that is running from the power supply board to the DMD and see if it's running 5 volts, If it's not then it could be just your cable, I had the same issue with my Baywatch so I bought one of those updated cables for $12 and that fixed my issue. Hope this helps some. I live in Ft Worth or I would let you test it on mine.

I appreciate the info & I'm aware of the updates. I used a computer type power supply on the bench & made cables going from it to all the plug ins. So the voltages are great. I measured the high voltages on the back of display itself and they all looked good too. Leads me to think I could have ribbon cable or ribbon cable connector issues, but I'd like to confirm the display itself is good before doing anything further. If its out gassed nothing I do to the connectors & ribbon cables will help.

Nice collection you have there. I live about an hour and a half from Austin. I sold a Frankenstein to a guy in Austin about 6 months ago but I doubt he is on pinside. I may still have his contact info if I can find it I'll pm you.

Thanks for the help Legacy. Your guy & I should be getting together next week to test the display. Have safe & merry Christmas all.

Wish I could help but all I've got is a Batman DE, BOP and TFLE. If any of those would work you are more than welcome to come try but I don't think they would.

P.S. - If you ever think of selling that Corvette let me know. I'm just down the street from you and have been considering one for a while. Stars have never alligned though.
