Is it possible to play a game without the dmd screen or can it have effects on another parts?

i do know i am missing a lot with the screen and need funding to buy a screen but was hoping in the meantime if i could play couple of games?

I think it will be fine to play while you save up loot

Great, thanks.

Post a wtb ad for a dmd. Lots of people jumping over to dmd, especially now with the upgrades. Guessing you could get a used one for cheap

those dmds are usually the oversized one and shockingly pricey! good luck

Actually many DE games use the narrower DMD, don't recall any using the wider one, Sega had a few games with the wider DMD.

There were only 4 titles produced with the larger DMD: Maverick, Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, Baywatch, and Batman Forever. Maverick was the only one made under the Data East name, as this was right when the company name changed to Sega.

There were only about 5 DE titles made with the smaller DMD, so actually, the majority of DE DMD games used the standard 128 x 32 like everyone else.

Did you measure your voltages on your power supply? May not be your DMD.
If you have a blown fuse, likely it is the high voltage. Can you at least measure with a meter if they are ok?

No, i totally need dmd screen, two molexes have been cut out, one from j2 and the other from power to cpu the cn17.

#11 5 years ago

Do you mean the DMD was completely missing?

#12 5 years ago

yes, it wasn't there

#13 5 years ago

Is that really bad?

#14 5 years ago

You can usually get one for $75-100 plus shipping. Put out a WTB ad, someone will help you. Even cheaper if you aren't fussy about lines being out or shading.

High voltage kits are cheap. Dmd screens are expensive. Often a blank screen is the high voltage.

What is and what do you do with a high voltage kit? I have many pins and have done many small repairs but am not familiar with that term.
