My twilight zone dmd went out and is now back to black and white, can anyone help me out with the parts I should order to fix the issue?
There is flickering on lots of pixels so leaving it broken with the white won’t work I have to fix it.
Thanks a bunch.

Try reseating this ribbon cable. I think it may be missing a signal due to a bad connection.2019-02-02 14_20_45-WPC ribbon cable to reseat - Paint (resized).png

Thanks. But experience of this happening a dozen times just means it needed to be shared for others to look for it as well when trouble comes about.

The idea of gaining experience is best shared with others.
