    Hi,

    I purchased a x-men fitted with leds. There is an issue with the blackbird led. Light goes on and off normally until a x-men mode (wolverine, beast, ...) starts, the corresponding insert on the X black circle starts flickering. The BLackbird led in off mode, which until then had shown no light ar all, starts flickering with a dimmed light, at the same pace as the X insert.

    The game finishes. If I start a new game, the problem disappears, until a x-men mode starts.

    Just to clarify: there is no residual light at all when the led goes off normally. It is not a question of poor led.

    Any help is welcome. Thanks

    Sounds like ghosting where when something else the column/row is on, it causes a faint lighting of this LED. Try putting in a non-ghosting LED in there and see if the problem goes away.

    Exactly what you said. I used a noflix superflux from pinball center. That was ok.

    My only issue is that the location of this lamp is awful. One ball on the led, straight to the outhole. Took me 30 minutes to extract it from the through.

    I put a simple smd instead. Not satisfactory but acceptable.

    Thanks
