    My dad has a ColorDMD in his Iron Man, and the display went black yesterday. Fuses are good. He texted me, "The initial led comes on briefly at start up then the done led."

    Is there anything specific we can check?

    I'm going to visit for Easter. Can I just plug in a ColorDMD from my Fish Tales and expect it to work (other than the coloring)?

    Now for a non-ColorDMD question. Is the older standard DMD from my Fish Tales compatible with Stern Iron Man? I'd like to bring that over for troubleshooting as well. He does not have a standard DMD to test.

    Yes the fish tales display will work. I suggest downloading the IM color ROM to the display before you remove it out of your game.

    I put a brand new Color DMD in my Star Trek premium and it was a black screen.
    I followed the suggestions on the install doc and carefully removed the ribbon cable, one end at a time, and cleaned and reseated it.

    It worked perfectly after that.

    It's delicate work on a small cable with a tiny connector. It's not hard, just really small.

    Thanks, guys.

    What about using a DMD from the WPC era in a 2010 Stern Iron Man? I'm just thinking ahead for potential troubleshooting.
