I have a pinduino installed on my lotr. They work fine in attract but when I start playing the game after about 30 seconds, they turn off. If I restart, they turn back on. I tried resetting everything. Anyone else experience this. Thanks.

Pinside stores could be easier to find. Here it is...

I'll PM you to trouble shoot this.

I am a newbie on this page, however not to pinball mods. Attempting to create a mod for the STTNG Speaker Panel. The artwork has (3) small sectioned about 2 inches wide each.

Need something which would have 5 leds per section, and control them to change in interesting ways. The strips would go behind the speaker plastic artwork.
Sorry, I know this is very specific, just not sure where to look, or who to ask.

Addressable LEDs may work, depending on what you are looking to do (color control, different LEDs on/off in a set). Perhaps something like a panel of addressable LEDs?

Ok guys, we are a sharing community on here, so here is what I am working on. I think I'm on the right track but know nearly nothing about the addressable leds and controller boards. My MOD idea is to put 3 or 4 led strips into a customize STTNG speaker panel, to create the effect of the console lights blinking and moving across (like in the show). I can recess the leds strips to be level with the surface, and run tiny wires out the rear to a controller board.

I know this is an extreme mod idea, so call me crazy (been called worse lol). Just thought this would be super cool enhancement to the machine.
Thoughts? Ideas? As you can imagine, the led strips will need to be short, and from I am reading, the controller board tells them the lighting patterns to run.

Appreciate advice and suggestions, sincerely.

looks like a fun project! a pinduino will give you a lot of options for different lighting effects and has 2 led ports so you can have one set of strips programmed different than the other.. go crazy!!

if you are looking just for simpler effects such as just blinking leds you can buy hardwired bulbs for this effect , i think comet has them now or a model train mod site would have them

have fun and update us when you get it done!

Definitely looks like a cool project. You'll probably need to carve channels in the wood (or drill holes through) for the LEDs. Could get by with a Pinduino if you want to have the lights tie into gameplay, or just an Arduino and one of the many addressable LED libraries if you want them to flash in various colors. Otherwise, pinballjj suggestion is perfect -- just get some blinking LEDs and get them wired in.
