Can anyone scan their helicopter blade plastic for me please. I need this part scanned. As you can see mine has tons of bubbles in it and I don't think they can be photoshopped out

Thank you!!

I've pick up a LW after a 22 year break since my last LW3. Missing the helicopter blade totally so was thinking of putting a 1:42 scale police helicopter in its place.

Looks like we could be next in line for Color DMD. Actually, ColorLED would be a better choice.

If its not, and it'd help, ColorDMD is more than welcome to convert my Pin2DMD colorization to colorDMD; I'll help however I can.

Same goes for TMNT, SFII, etc

#558 88 days ago

Yeah!

Any ideas where this plastic is supposed to go? I just got a brand new plastic set and this is the one piece I cannot figure out where it is supposed to go.

Over one of the pops to prevent stucky balls in the spiral wireform I believe: I can get you a pic.

I would appreciate it if you can, mine doesn't have anything there at all

Not my game because I haven’t been home all day but you can kinda see it here.

It has a metal bracket to raise it up and tilt the plastic so air balls fall into the wireform instead of getting stuck on top of the pop.

Not all that important in home use really.

I put a helicopter in mine (different position) but it really spiced up the playfield. I made mine interactive so the blades spin when the ramp shot is made. Here's a pic and a video link to see it in action.

Cool!

How did you make the blades spin?

#567 75 days ago
Quoted from jorro:

Cool!

I used a 12v relay (with a resistor and diode) connected to the blue flasher bulb circuit (the one directly left of the ramp). When the flasher flashes it clicks the relay. The heli's motor is connected to something like a 3v DC power supply. The relay breaks the circuit when the flasher is off. Works well because this is the flasher that lights up when the ramp shot or subway shot is made. I don't remember the exact specs on what I used, this was about 6 years ago, but you get the idea.

#568 74 days ago

does anyone have old spare plastics for the left side of this playfield? Upper left corner, and the middle one on the left would be great.Need not be perfect, its a players game

I like what you have done. The LED strips lights too look good too. The helicopter looks like the Pizo ones that came out of China a few years back.

Ok ok ok.

Joined the club last week. Mine came with a few extra plastics. Anyone know where this clear one goes? this things a left drain monster. I consider myself a pretty good player and still haven't broke 300mil. 268 is my high.

Also it has an obnoxious hum Coming from the right speaker. Any quick fixes for that?

Try the center drop targets. Check the photo-morgue above.

#574 18 days ago

I had a hum. Its dirty voltage. I changed the sound card to a pinsound and it masks the hum while I improve the voltage. The transformer has water marks on so I reckon the transformer at the moment.

Well my LW3 is the pin that keeps giving.
My DMD controller board is dead again, gives nothing out to dmd, not even the rom version number, although there is activity on the data ribbon cable to the DMD, I checked with logic probe, the PALs seem to get very hot but maybe thats normal, I have a pal/gal programmer but cannot find the code anywhere, anyone have them by any chance? I know its the controller as it went before and I had a lend of a controller which I was using.
Also all my voice callouts stopped working and C&C is distorted, all the other sounds are fine, I've checked voltages, roms, RAM, Ribbon cables, re-capped some of the audio board, I will finish it over the weekend and see if it helps though

Anyone a spare DMD Controller board they want to sell?

Has anyone here bought and installed this yet? I did, and cannot seem to get it sorted out. I installed one on my Avengers, and it went smoothly. This one...not so much. I would like to talk with someone who did it and make sure I am not missing anything.
Thanks.

I did. Other than the usual screwups here and there, it was mostly uneventful. Managed to get it all buttoned up and then realized I'd mounted it upside down. =)

Not sure how I can help; I can take photos if you need to confirm wiring, etc.

John:
Thanks for the reply. Can you snap several photos? Overhead view of the overall install, then some detail shots of how the parts "layered"..the DMD, the RF shield, how the posts and nuts "stack".....and the wiring, too.

Here you go. I think I left the RF shield off. Let me know if you need anything else or can't make out something.

I think these will be perfect. It will be next weekend before I get to try the install...but this will help.
Thanks again!

#581 8 days ago

OK, so now a follow up question......
Below is a close up of your photo....showing the 26 pin ribbon cable, connected to CN3 on the original DMD controller board. The red stripe is to the LEFT.
But in step 7 of the instructions, it says red stripe to RIGHT.
https://www.colordmd.com/installation/ColorDMD%20LED%20Installation%20Instructions%20DE%20SEGA%20Rev2.PDF

Since your install of this display board actually works, is it safe to assume the instructions are simply incorrect?
Any thoughts?

#582 8 days ago

Well keep in mind that the thing is laid out on my playfield with the “top” of the board closest to us. So effectively it’s upside down.

But yes it works.

#583 8 days ago

Yep, I got it for positioning.....but I did lie before...I have one more question/request.....
Can you take a photo of the other end of the 26 pin ribbon? So I ensure both ends are oriented to match yours?
Are they both "red stripe to the right" when standing in front,the facing the machine?
Thanks again.

#584 8 days ago

The red wire on a ribbon cable is usually pin#1, there should be a 1 silk screened on the board.

I bought the pin 2 dmd for mine and installed it. I used the color dmd data east power adaptor. Worked good. I did have issues when first trying to get mine going. had to put the DMD back to factory settings. Then it started working

Hey all, anybody still making reproduction plastics here? I need the left hand side piece.

Thanks

I bought from this guy and he is a Saskatchewan seller. I don't know if he sells individual pieces or not. I was very pleased with my purchase from him though everything was well done.
