    The LCD doesn't even have power, no backlight, nothing. What's wrong?!?! Thanks!
    This is obvious, but I'm gonna ask anyways. You need to run a seperate power line to the LCD from a power supply, it won't get power from the parallel port. Did you do this, if it isn't getting power it obviously isn't gonna work.

    By the way I like your MAME cab, I'm building one myself.

    Yup, I have a male connector in the box that connects to the mobo, then theres wires goin through to a female one on the outside, on the 13th pin, I connect it to the PSU from a old fan connector and ground is obviosly ground.

    By the way, have you gone to arcadecontrols.com yet? I'm always there posting and sometimes in chat! Good luck with the MAME cab, theyre lots of fun, more fun building though!

    lol, I just had to get my 2 cents in on this one. Why not get the real thing? Convert some cheap MK2 game back to Pac-Man. You'll have fun and a classic game all at the same time.

    Dudah, sounds like your power wiring should work will your backlight come on? If not try using your multimeter and find out how far back you have good power on your cables, maybe there's a bad solder joint or something there. I have been to arcadecontrols.com, I've posted there a few times great site.

    pinballfreak, I'd have restored a classic, but why not have thousands of games on a cab instead of just one. I think it's great when people bring back the classic games, but I wanted more out of my cab since I'll only have room for one.
