Hello folks,

I need your help for my Hobbit issue. Since a week the small book display on the playfield top left did not show everything. However itis on and bright.
I wrote JJP twice but still no answer .

What I tried so far:
Check ingame diagnosis: No failures or messages
Connect mini dispaly to Laptop: Nothing shown, only white.
Connect Pinball display output to a monitor: It showing the same like the main screen.

Did anybody experienced the same?
Did anyboy have any suggestiongs how it can be fixed?

Thanks

You have the right idea for troubleshooting. It's a PC nothing more. You've narrowed down it's a signal output issue so the last step is to swap out the SVGA cable. Or if you're lucky enough to have access to a DPORT to SVGA signal converter to use the main output to test the small LCD. If the LCD is confirmed good and swapping the SVGA cable doesn't work then I'd suspect the system board secondary output is bad.

Some time passed since the last post but I would like to share the solution.

After replacing the display as raw spare part everything worked fine again.
No other electronics affected.
Exchange was quite easy no soldering or similar necassary.

Thanks to all for your suggestions.
