Re: dmd stops refreshing after third image

Hey mate,

at a quick glance, currently in the airport departure lounge, it appears you are missing a closing brace ";}" after the three in the scoring section. i hope its this easy to fix :)

I just took mine out of the box from storage (xmas project last year), and upon programming up the Arduino, I noticed that the 7th column, 4th row LED was off. No amount of code would bring it back :) I desoldered the littl...

Hi dinoelectro, I cannot see why it wouldn't work, provided it is connected to the arduino in a similar fashion as the Freetronics style panels. I would try with these values, to effectively double the amount of LED's (V & H) expected from the Freetronics DMD. Have you tried with your panel, or are ...
