Hello,

Just installed a brand new LED kit from cointakers for my star wars data east. It looks awesome BUT there are about 4 leds in the inserts that are ghosting! I already did the 180 turn on them and still same problem. Has anyone experienced this before? Why would they be ghosting if they are non-ghosting leds. Already confirmed with cointakers that those particular leds are in fact non-ghosting. Any suggestions or any thoughts? Thanks!

Are the four LEDs that are ghosting connected to a similar row or column on the light matrix? if so, look for a shorted/missing/backward diode on that particular row/column.

Did Cointaker offer to replace them?

OH and I would try them in other inserts to see if it moves with the LEDs.

They quit ghosting the next day I installed them! Don't know how or why but they look great with NO ghosting!

Yes they offered to replace them and there was no need because they quit ghosting the very next day! They look awesome! Thanks

I am sure it was my machine and not the actual LEDs tho. Really happy!

If any of you want pictures or a video let me know. The machine looks awesome! Really recommend this kit.
