Quoted from enjoyvelvet:

Got a chance to finish up a video to show footage of the new ColorDMD on my Ghostbusters Pro. As this is my fourth display, I'd consider this colorization to be not quite as refined as my other machines. For example, at the 4:09 mark you can see the storage animation loses its color at the very end of the animation and I've noticed in a couple of other spots too. With an update to correct the green slime to pink, finish up a couple of color details, and refine some of the colors others feel are a bit washed out, I think this colorization will be even more awesome than it already is. Happy to add this display to my machine and def a big improvement over the standard "red" stock display. Leave a comment and let me know what you think!

Pretty sure those frames that lack colorization are Pro vs Prem/LE ROM differences because they look fine on our Premium - no problems at all. Randy said they would be addressed in an update, I believe.

Was taking some video while a friend played last night. This is with the LED screen. Storage Facility starts at 0:38--the flashing windows look awesome in person with the LED screen as they're genuinely much brighter than the rest of the screen (running contrast 4 and brightness 9 on mine). Lots of glass reflection with the LED screen, so I put a temporary piece of cardboard to shield most of it.

hey guys,

have a ColorDMD 1.3 a now and i built my own power cable. So can some one tell me where i have to connect the Pins 1-3.

Colordmd (resized).jpg

Powersupply is https://www.meanwell-web.com/en-gb/ac-dc-triple-output-enclosed-power-supply-output-rt--65b

Ports IN:

1 = L [ AC socket]
2 = N [AC socket]
3 = GND [AC socket]

Ports OUT:

4 = NC
5 = V3 (-12Vdc)
6 = V2 (+12Vdc) [ColorDMD Pin 3]
7 = COM
8 = +5Vdc [ColorDMD Pin 1]

Where can I connect [ColorDMD Pin 2] (GND)?
Can I connect it to Powesupply Pin 3 = GND [AC Socket] where the Socket GND is already connected?
Is it possbly to connect AC and DC Ground from ColorDMD together?

Hope you can help me guys.
Thank you and best regards

Pretty sure you want to connect it to COM (Common).

Thanks vireland. I was not sure... But i will give it a try

#156 3 months ago

Contrast 4
Brightness 9

Seems to be the optimal settings for this LED display on this game for me

Hi,

I see a strange thing about my colorDMD (LED), indeed when it is a new time for example 11h, the display becomes all white while the gong of the clock rings, then the color returns after the end of the gong !

And this for each new hour when the pinball is in atractive mode.

It's a Premium GB for info.

Do you have the same problem ?

#158 84 days ago

Anybody have the same prob ?

Quoted from Bertille:

I never have mine sitting in attract mode, so not sure.

Quoted from yzfguy:

Neither do I. When I am not playing my pins I turn them off. I'm too cheap to pay for them to be chugging juice the entire time.

#161 83 days ago

Nobody to let plug his pinball 5 minutes before a new time, just to test ?

#162 83 days ago
Quoted from vireland:

No contest. LCD just gives so much more flexibility. I'd only take LED in a Slugfest or CV where I HAD to.

Oh theres a contest, LED looks much better to me.

#163 76 days ago

I was about to start installing the color LCD and noticed the bag with cables and hardware is labeled “Installation Kit for SAM/Whitestar”. Is that correct or does it sound like they gave me the wrong kit?

#164 76 days ago

Same kit... you should find a spike power cable in the bag. Refer to the installation instructions on www.colordmd.com

Now that there's a gasket for the LCD screens that seals the screen area from dust and light, finish isn't so much an issue anymore.

Where is that gasket sold from? Colordmd.com?

I sell it in the pinmonk store here on pinside:

https://pinside.com/pinball/market/shops/1170-pin-monk/by-category/307-cabinet-other

...and Colordmd.com also sells them.

Any update coming out anytime soon to fix the black and white issues on a couple screens and the "green" river of slime which should be pink.

#169 41 days ago

Also curious what the consensus is for LED vs. LCD. I have always thought to buy the LCD due to having more options.

This would be my first Color DMD...

It is all about your preference. I prefer LCD if it fits.

#171 41 days ago

I have always purchased the LCD as well.

#172 41 days ago

LED fan here

#173 41 days ago

Same here.

#174 41 days ago

LED too ! Like the original ;+)

I purchased the LED but then saw the LCD in a friends machine and sold the LED and purchased the LCD. Very happy now.

#176 40 days ago

Well, quite the mixed feelings here on LED vs. LCD haha.

#177 40 days ago

LED for me!

Can I ask what it was that you saw that made you switch to LCD?

#179 39 days ago

Probably that the LCD looks better.

Or that he thought the LED looked better.

Seriously, there is no right answer its 50 50. The led is brighter and cheaper, the LCD has more options.

LCD is more flexible and the light is less intense.

Quoted from vireland:

For exactly this reason. The LED dots are intense and I love the options the LCD provides. It’s easier on the eyes too.

Hi everyone. I'm looking at getting a color dmd for my GB-Prem.

Q: Can anyone summarize the options the LCD provides that the LED lacks?

Q: Is the LED color DMD brighter than the original monochrome dmd from stern? (or about the same?)

1 concern I have amount led is that off access viewers might see a faded display which LED would not have. Is this the case?

#184 17 hours ago

LCD provides options to enlarge the dots/tiles etc to give you more options.

LED will probably be brighter, it sure is with W/B, but can be turned down.

Q1
IMO, No doubt on this game, that LCD is a clear winner over the LED, I own both LCD & LED displays. General recommendation is White-star & down LED, SAM - Spike 1 LCD.

LED might be brighter, but very few talk about the OEM dot circle, the stock display has tiny bubble projectors to even out the light creates a nice soft "glowing circle". With the ColorDMD LED you can see the individual LED of the RGB fire, color convergence, so at times on some colors there can be more space between the LED's, additionally can look more uneven. It may fit like OEM, but it certainly does not look OEM.

On the LCD DOTS or DOTXL option is by far much closer to mimic the OEM display "circle" & identical size. (improved dot matrix alignment even over the OEM LED), also you can't get as many shades of colors on the LED, Shading on the LCD gives you a little more detail in the renders, its the little things. all ColorDMD website revels are LCD coloring (which I think is obvious) Basically what you see on the website is exactly how it will be on your pin, just get the foam gasket... again, DON'T FORGET THE GASKET.

Q2
yes the LED is brighter than the stock stern led.

off access viewing is trivial at best esp... in HUO pins. like buying a really nice TV and watching it from the side or below like at a bar.
