The DMD controller failed again yesterday. This time it went with a bang and scared the hell out of a friend playing the machine.
At first it seemed that only the fuse failed, but after replacing it, the display looked really really weird. No letters, no graphics, just some sort of huge blob in the middle. I measured the voltages (Again) and the two negative voltages were waaaaaay of the normal readings. They read -152/-130.
What am I going to do about this one? I don't know yet. I'll see in a couple of weeks, when I'm back with my Whitewater.
It seems that if things continue to evolve in this manner I'll have to start a new blog and dedicate it to DMD controller exclusively. :)
