    synchronous panels?

    Yes so it is completely noisy at 5v and works best at ~4.5v , still very noisy at 4.8v. The biggest issue after that is the OE signal. If I jumper OE to the power supply frame it stabilizes it almost perfectly, otherwise it is scrambled. Some value r/c filter needed maybe ? Have any suggestions ? assuming it is AC interference (all other panels I have work fine) I made a crossover cable for the G and B signals and that corrects the colour issue. thanks for your time Lucky

    synchronous panels?

    Ok I have now tried panels in working Pinball and it shows that if the new panel is the second panel it is stable but not the correct color. If I use 2 new panels it is unstable.

    synchronous panels?

    Yes I have tried several different cables. I have found that if I touch PC6 (OE) or even touching the HUB 75 cable my body capacitance makes it become readable but not stable. You say you have the same panels, can you verify for me that cx4 and cx5 capacitors are missing from your panels as well, vendor says they aren't needed but maybe in our application they are. Thanks

    synchronous panels?

    I have updated to 2.60, I can now make out some letters sometimes and I can switch palettes in the pin2dmd tool however green is blue and blue is green so these must be BRG panels ? What can we do to make them work?

    synchronous panels?

    Thanks Lucky, Chips appear to be FM6124 , below is picture of board, working pin2dmd and same shield and controller on not working new panels. Also you will see missing capacitors cx4 and cx5 , vendor says they aren’t needed.

    synchronous panels?

    I have made 6 pin2dmd panels successfully and look great. I have now purchased more panels but they do not work. The specs say that they are synchronous panels where others I have purchased are async/sync. Am I out of luck with these?

    Pin2Dmd Editor

    Well I for one totally appreciate all the work that you have put into this project Lucky, It has been a bit of a struggle but I have a couple perfectly working awesome looking Pin2DMDs working in my TOM and TZ. If you were to wait until the code was perfect to publish anything it would not be a public project it would be a business. Don't let anyone piss on your parade this is fantastic stuff and I've learned a lot along the way so far. My goal is to have these in all 7 of my Pins soon. Thanks to all you guys for your work UncleSash and Steve too!!

    Pin2Dmd Editor

    Great! The palette upload works now. Will there be capability for the editor to record real pinball play? The dump from pin2dmd.exe does not seems to be properly formatted for the editor. This is terrific stuff !! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
