thank you lucky1 for the information,
here are two pictures of the connection
concerning the files, I conceal the activation key with the original name and the color file, the other two files I delete them (pin2dmd.dat and update.ok).

Could you remove the Nucleo board and make a picture of shield under it and maybe a picture of the ribbon cable from the mpu
to the dmd controller

#303 3 months ago

here are the photos .
for files, I keep in the micro SD activation key with the original name and the color file?
the other two files I delete them (pin2dmd.dat and update.ok)?
Is the ribbon cable on the shield connected correctly?

the original dmd worked very well,
I simply disconnected the ribbon cable from the old plasma DMD to put on the shield of the nucleo.
I will test tomorrow, by removing the files from the SD card, as cited above
no danger if I reverse ribbon cable of the shield?

The shield you have is for virtual pinball. It is missing some parts for real pinball usage.
No wonder that it is not working with LS123 missing in the lower socket of the pcb. link » 74ls123 Monoflop 2 Fach Retriggerbar Clear Dip16

thank you lucky1for your help,
I got a 74ls123 on a V3 shield,
do I miss something else?
I had new info about the shield V4, there would be a strappe to do on shield,
here is a picture of my shield and another one of the modification to make
the little red line(inside the yellow circle)is the missing connection
can you confirm if I have to do it?

#312 89 days ago

even a small question,
is there a file already colorized pin2dmd-xl for the pinball baywatch?

Moved my baywatch to make room for another pin and now my dmd is not working . One of my ground straps had broke off and may have touched the power supply for the dmd. Can anyone confirm if the green led on the dmd power supply ever turns on or flashes? Or can you measure the volts your getting on terminals? Thanks.

Should be constantly on. I think blinking means overload / short circuit. Try it without the panel attached and see wether it is still blinking.

#319 42 days ago

It's not blinking either. No activity. My lines are all attached by the transformer as well I tripped checked. The game plays fine just no dmd. Do you think a ground strap touching the power supply would fry it? Do you think it could have fried anything elts? What should readings be at power supply lugs (top to bottom?) What is a suitable replacement? Thanks for your help.

Im getting 0.038V on my -V line and
0.130v on my + V line . L &N have no readings.

If L and N have no readings, the power supply is not getting any 120VAC power. Check from that back to the tie in and see if you get 120v somewhere.

#322 42 days ago

Ok. When going to disconnect L & N lines to read voltages I realized one was not seated correctly and not making proper contact. The male tab and come forward and was not sliding into the female tab but rather to one way of the female port. I bent it to the middle and reinstalled. The dmd now works and light to dmd power supply is constantly on. Although there is a line out down the middle of the dmd. I have posted a video. Any thoughts or ideas to fix this. I will reset it when I get home from work but any other ideas are welcome. Thanks.
