    Hey all.

    Got a Nine Ball with a mix of Bally and stern displays. It's been fine until yesterday. Player 1 display started ghosting the previous digits.

    I reflowed the header pins and now only one digit is ghosting. The 100k digit is showing the same segments as the 10k next to it, albeit it feintly.

    The far left digit should show a 1, not a 4.

    I've moved the display around and the problem stays with that display

    Help appreciated

    Read through my thread I did a while ago, should have all the info to help you out.

    I've ordered some resistors, if not for this display I have 4 others not working all different issues.

    I thought the resistor failing would mean no digit at all, the 100k digit works, but also shows the 10k digit segments faintly.
    Could it still be the resistor?
