How to light coin returns?
« on: June 21, 2018, 12:15:57 pm »
I have a cocktail table that someone else made and it has a real coin mech door. It looks like there are two holes for lights in the back of the coin return buttons are. This is a mame cabinet (just running a laptop), can anyone suggest what lights I should use?

Thanks!

What coin door is it? Take a picture.

Can easily power from atx power supply and molex connector, but your using a laptop. Maybe something usb?

Laptop makes it a tiny bit harder but not much. Get a usb cable, strip it to isolate the power and ground. Use that to light the bulbs.

Try using an extension cable for the USB port and get some of these:
