Noob needs help hooking up illuminated buttons
05/07/12 05:07 PM


Hi, guys

I'm Steve - VERY new to all this although I have experience with wiring, etc to some degree. I have removed and re-installed my two joysticks and moved some buttons around so I have a little experience with arcade games so far.

I want to install the following illuminated buttons:

I plan to use 4 of these for my "A" and "B" buttons on each player's side. I have a total of 6 buttons per player.

Problem is I have NO clue where to hook up the 12v power supply or how to locate it in my cabinet. I am also wondering if a ground wire will be needed or if that is included as part of the "button-to-button" wiring. I have no idea which blades go to ground, power or to the other buttons.

lol - as I said I am clueless but I have potential.

I work in a sign shop and would be willing to print a control panel or something if anyone would be willing to help me get these hooked up.

Look forward to meeting some of you and getting involved in this great new hobby! I designed my own custom graphics package (working at a sign shop is a gamer's dream!) and will share some pics soon.

Steve
