    • Questions for Namco Noir owners

      Hi guys,

      I'm a happy Noir owner for a while, and I have a couple of things I'd like to fix/improve, so I'm asking you guys for help:
      1) Currently, the Banapassport reader is disconnected and I have this short connector lying around under the the coin slot metal plate. I know it would be useless in terms of functionality, but I wonder if it would be possibile to connect it (and where) just in order to light up the reader for aestethics
      2) The led strip inside the CP is almost dead, only a couple of lights actually light up. Is there a way to fix it or can I buy somewhere a "plug and play" spare part to replace it?

      Thanks for your help!
    • 1. Banapassport only has lighting activity if connected to namco hardware. Wireing up some leds on your own may be a better route there.

      Will send pictures tonight.

      2. I am guessing it is filthy with soda goo. Each time i work on these i put these in the dishwasher and clean them. Unfortunately i dont have the part # for the surface mount led

      So yes...it would be great if someone could make a guide, or share the info....but that also means its your chance to shine, by being the one to learn, and share said info! That's how this place continues to grow!

      Be brave, good sir...and lay the brick with your name on it, in our wall of knowledge!

      I have the exact same problem as well!
      I have a tekken 7r2 and ttt2 so I have the hardware. Just want to hook it up so I can have it light up as well.

      Same issue also

      sorry been a bit delayed.

      ok first picture 1385 has the special cable for es1 and es3 computers it convert from the computer to the standard 7 pin that goes red 7 pin plug that goes to the banapassport reader.

      second picture 1386 is the cable needed for the system 357 and 369. it uses the same 7 pin cable that goes to the red 7 pin plug that goes to the banapassport reader or player 1 tekker 6/br card reader. also it has a 8 pin plug cable that a blue 7 pin plug which goes to the player 2 tekken 6/br card reader unit.

      Rocket, where do you get those cords?

      You are totally right, I'll try to sort out something and share it back to the community

      I removed one of the led panels today in the instruction space there are two in total. Each led panel is fed by 24 volts dc and each panel consists of 20 surface mounted leds in 4 groups of 5.

      Will post some pics tomorrow.
      So I assume the broken leds must be unsoldered and replaced with new ones. Is this correct? Maybe it could be easier to replace the whole panel if I could find find something similar...
    • the led are common component we should at some point be able to figure out the vender. i had breaks on the solder of mine i just had to jumper test over bad ones to figure out the good ones. there are 4 seperate chains of 5 (dont remember exact quantity) led each. if one led in a chain goes bad as a open circuit all the ones after the open turn off. if it goes bad as a short the bad one may or may not stay lit but all the others in the chain will stay lit. just one note if the last led goes bad in a chain it will look visibally like a short in an unlit situation.

      I would think it’s easier to replace the surface mounted leds, they are in series as Rocket has mentioned above 4 x 5 LEDs with a 180 ohm resister in series with each group.
