Re: Noob needs help hooking up illuminated buttons

For the LEDs run common 12V and Ground lines either to an arcade PSU if one is in the cabinet (Looks like what is in the picture on the link I sent.

Or if using a PC PSU, take them both from a power connector for hard-drive or CD-ROM/DVD, Yellow is +12V, Black is ground.

As for the buttons, are you using JAMMA or another interface, ie IPAC ? Usual method is to connect all the COM blades together as a common Ground connection and connect the NO (Normally Open) blades to the switch inputs.

Hope this helps
