Hey all, Looking at replacing the DMD on my DE ST. as it has become a bit crappy. I have changed the ribbon cable and re flowed the DMD. It has a couple diagonal lines missing and some funky stuff going on in the middle ,( diagonal). It is playable . A mate came over last night and did not pick the problem.....I did .. Wondering what is the best replacement options , or is there something else I can try before I fork out big bucks. Cheers

You can find new ones at Boston Pinball in a variety of colors. You can find color ones through PinballSP and PIN2DMD but they are much more expensive. Here's the Boston Pinball one I have in my Hook, it looks great. These also use all through hole components making repair a breeze and extending longevity over many years.

Cheers Crash.. Are the Boston units set out complete or are they in kit form?

They are complete plug and play units. They don't rely on high voltage and I suggest removing the 0.5A high voltage fuse from the power supply board before installing it. You also need to remove and keep your existing display ROM chip for the new display.
