    I have had problems with the site all weekend. I was trying to download a rom and kept getting redirected to some on-line pharmacy. I tried multiple computers and browsers. I think something is wrong with the site.

    #5 1 year ago

    A lot of web hosts are upgrading to the latest version of PHP for the start of 2019. It may break some sites.

    Quoted from gripwhip:

    However, that sounds like either your brower is infected, or the site was hacked and infected

    #6 1 year ago

    Site is back up and running.

    Thanks.. I saw that on the website. But, should my screen atleast show something on it when i cut the game on? It is black....

    Quoted from Skyemont:

    If you moved it from another game, you need to install the latest Sigma ROM or color ROM of whatever game it is you put the display.

    You can press the far right menu button to see what the current ROM that is installed.

    #11 1 year ago

    While you are viewing this screen, best to take a picture of it so you have a copy of the product code in case it gets erased so you can easily enter again, if needed.

    The problem is nothing shows up on the screen.. Its black...

    Then you have a major problem. If no LED lights up on the ColorDMD board, then you either do not have power connected or you blew a fuse.

    Post some pictures of it connected with the game on. Need to see the driver board as well lit up.

    #14 1 year ago

    So is there no support by phone?? If so, that sucks..

    #15 1 year ago

    I do not work for ColorDMD but helped out in many threads. Waiting on requested pictures.

    Need to see a picture the big driver board lit up, not the DMD controller board.

    Display driver board is the second pic.

    I'm asking about the big Power driver board, not the DMD controller board.

    #22 1 year ago

    Sorry. Attached another pic of other games i own.

    If i hook up my reg dmd, its fine. Works great.

    #24 1 year ago

    If you have your game on, Done should be lit on the ColorDMD board. It looks to be off in your picture. Is it because your camera flash is on? 20190101_154322 (resized).jpg

    #25 1 year ago

    Camera Flash?

    #26 1 year ago

    Did you have you flash turned on? If I have mine turned on, I cannot see the Done LED lit when my cell phone takes a picture.

    Is your Done LED lit?

    #27 1 year ago

    I thought it only shows done when you have finished downloading an update. The done is not lit. I was told in order to get this to work, i need to get a new 32 bit product key...

    When I turn on my game, there are a few other LEDs flash then the Done LED stays lit. If yours is not doing that, it is suggesting to me that you do not have power getting to the display.

    #29 1 year ago

    Can you plug power using the connector/wiring at J118 please?

    #30 1 year ago

    I just switched it to J118 and it has the same results. Can you download the file i need and email it to me? I tried to download the software but it will not stay solid when i insert it in the dmd board.

    ok. If you are seeing some LEDs flash, then you are getting power. That is what I had been trying to determine.

    #32 1 year ago

    Pinside will not let me PM the file. It has to be the ColorDMD.ROM from this list for the older display. Make sure it is the only color file on your USB drive. Delete any old color files you have on your PC or USB drive depending on where you save the file upon downloading it from their webpage. https://www.colordmd.com/support_firmware_colordmd.html

    #33 1 year ago

    When i download the file, it looks like this. When i stick it in the dmd thumb drive, i am suppose to hit the left button on that board and it will flash 5 times and then stay solid, it doesnt. It keeps blinking.

    Didnt read every post but the rom file needs to be named colordmd.rom

    colordmd(1).rom will likely not work

    Okay guys, after messing w/ this all day long, it finally works.. But, its a orange color.. Its not in color. Is there a next step?

    #37 1 year ago

    I don't have a product key code on my display. Could this be the issue as to why I don't have color?

    On an older color dmd I had the key code vanished and display went to single color. Got a new key from Randy and manually inputted it and all was well again.
