Connecting to Power Steps (Data East version)
- There are two ways to feed the wiring for the lighting system into the pinball cabinet. Option one is to loosen one of the vents or the speaker panel in the bottom of the game and feed the wiring through into the cabinet. Option two is to run the wiring up the rear of the back of the cabinet, tilting the back box forward and feeding the connection inside the cabinet.
- Open the backbox and locate the Sound Board. Unplug the 6pin connector on the Sound board in the backbox and utilize the instructions found here to install the Data East Power Adapter. Utilize the molex end of the connector to power your pinball mod/accessory.
- Attach the splitter to the Power Adapter and then connect the ends of the LEDs to the splitter. Prior to attaching LEDs to your game, turn on the game power to ensure LEDs are working.
- Attach the LED channel underneath the cabinet near the outside edge of the cabinet. Once LEDs are installed, pull any remaining slack from the wires into the cabinet to avoid additional weight pulling on the LED strips.
- For backbox lighting, attach LED channel either vertically or horizontally depending upon preference.
- Lower the playfield and installation is complete!
