Hi! I've seen several threads about LED ghosting etc. I have 2 Williams machines, F14, and Getaway. My getaway LEDs worked perfect. F14 has serious ghosting issues.

I used coin taker super brights...

Other than the LED OCD board, is there an easy solution?

Funny thing is, it worked perfectly for about 5 minutes, then all of a sudden all the ghosting appeared. Was super happy, then super disappointed. Thanks for any inputs.

If they supposedly worked perfectly for 5min then didn't I suspect you have a lamp matrix issue.

You could buy some pinballbulbs non ghosting bulbs to test

But really you should provide more info and explore that lamp matrix

I have regular leds in my f14 and no ghosting, you probably have an issue somewhere, which bulbs are ghosting?

All the red arrows, specials, flight insurance, extra ball, bonus x, rescue (kickback), 2000 spinner all are ghosting.

The blue arrow inserts, fly again, KILL, rescue lights, and the 3 inserts (hot streak etc) at the top, all TOMCAT insert lights are fine.

I really have no idea how to trouble shoot the lamp matrix or what would be an issue with it... any help is appreciated.

Quoted from jrivelli:

explore that lamp matrix

How do I do that?

Get the manual out and open up to the lamp matrix to reference at the same time. Check to see if there is a pattern. Is all one column ghosting or you find all one row is ghosting. Then start checking the basics like making sure the diodes look good and aren't touching anything they shouldn't be
