Hey guys, Troubleshooting a DE Hook Pinball machine. I sold this game a few years ago and regretted it and had the chance to buy back the same game. Anyways, It has a weird issue and I'm not sure if its the DMD or something else. Its really bad with Vertical lines but horizontal is fine.

Heres a video to hopefully see. Never mind my shaky hand.

Thank you!

Make sure your voltages are correct. If they're good it looks like standard old DMD syndrome...

DMD is outgassing. Buy a new one.

I'll check the voltage. If it looks good I'll start the long search for a dmd. Dang!

It does look like it's outgassing to me. I have a Batman that uses the same dmd and have been having issues. This was the only place that I could find that sold them. Not sure what it would be with shipping, but it comes in at $248 USD right now.

Crap, looks like its not able to ship to the US. Unfortunately it is not possible to dispatch into this country

Dang it! I was thinking about picking one up for my DE Batman at some point. I thought I had heard of US people buying pinled stuff. Or maybe it's just the DMD. If I find any other places that offer the DMD I'll let you know.

No worries. I'll keep searching as well.

XPin should be releasing a 128x16 LED DMD in the near future.
They were doing some tests at the TPF in 2014 in a TMNT if I recall correctly.

Really? I hadn't heard of any development. That would be awesome!

Already that was a year and a half since I seen it displayed. I am surprised it has not already been released.

What bad timing. I just sold one of these displays a couple months ago. Would have been perfect Tony.

Replace R95 before you get a new glass for this one. 33k resistor, the same as the one right beside it.
It goes bad and causes an outgassed appearance. Your display glass could still be bad but a resistor is cheaper than the glass for the 128 x 16 DMD

Tony, I have left over resistors for R95 for mine that we fixed. You can have one if you need it.

#15 4 years ago

John, can you bring one to work tomorrow? I'll start with that and see how it does. One can HOPE!
