Your Scorbitron uses the Scorbit DMD Probe to connect to the game. The DMD is an active probe, and it actually drives the DMD display so it must be installed correctly for the display to function.
The connection to your game is easy, and requires three steps:
- Identifying and removing the proper display connector
- Installing the probe between the connector and the game display board
- Connecting the probe to the Scorbitron
Identifying and Removing Your Display Connector
Locate connector J2 on your Dot Matrix Control Board. This is a 14-pin connector on the rear of the board near the speaker panel. There should be a ribbon connector going from J2 to the DMD display:
Remove the cable connected to J2 and carefully insert the DMD probe into the same connector. Press the black probe input connector firmly onto the pins. Note the DMD probe direction, with the USB port facing to the right:
Take the original connector you removed from J2 and connect it to the 14 pin output connector of the DMD probe:
Next, take the supplied Gen 2 USB-C cable and connect it to the USB-C port on the edge of the probe:
Put the other end of the Gen 2 USB-C cable into Port A of the Scorbitron. Only use Port A for this type of probe:
Your installation of the Scorbitron connection is now complete! At this point, you may provide power to your game and proceed with the next step of the installation, Activating Your Scorbitron.
