Replaced LEDs on 1210 - FAIL :-(

Postby robgmixes » 28 Nov 2011 22:23

I just swapped over the 33/45 leds for blue ones, and they do not work as anticipated..The 33 comes on and stays on even if I press the 45 button. The 45 LED however never comes on. I have inspected for dodgy soldering, especially as its a bit tight in that corner, but to no avail. Any ideas?

Put the old ones back and see what happens. Not all leds are the same voltage, maybe this is affecting something? Also leds require a specific orientation, did you solder them in the correct way round?

Check to see if any solder from the 33 and 45 might have contacted any other points on the PCB board. You can always desolder and start over. I recommend using the solder sucker too, don't use solder wick because they don't work as well and can pull off contact points on your PCB
