Hello everyone

Quick question as I encountered something strange I never seen before. While playing the animation of the DMD suddenly slowed down to the point that everything else reacted slower on the playfield. For example the ball lock only started once the animation was half done. It's still playable but still... I wonder what the issue here is. I checked the board and the battery didn't leak.

Has someone encountered this problem before? I am a bit clueless here as I have never seen this before .
Could this be a bad RAM or bad DMD?

Thanks for your input!

I uploaded a video. At the very end of the video you can see the delay very clearly. Is this a communication issue? Any help is appreciated

Test the 5v and 12v on the power supply.
