See below!

I’ve been having trouble getting my apron to light up as it should!!

I hooked up the apron onto a 9v battery and it was amazing!! When piggybacked into the board I get nothing.

Does this mean I need to run a seperate power supply to get the same result as when it’s connected to the battery?

a battery is DC current, depending on your bulbs you may have an AC source or not enough voltage. measure the voltage at your connection point

Quoted from jardine:

Hoping someone here can help. I recently bought a CV that had the lighted apron from these guys: https://www.pinball-dreams.com/

The problem I am having is that it is emitting a buzzing sound when it is active.

Did you have it working 5 months ago?

looks like this comes with a 12v inverter. did you check the output voltage of the inverter?

Nope! Lol.

If I hook this up to a 12v power supply similar to that you find in most arcade cabs, recon it’d run ok?

probably would work fine, i cant imagine the amp draw on this is anything significant.

Thanks mate! Emailed them and finally got a response! 12v power supply will be fine! Look forward to finally getting this working right!
