and no, i didn't appreciate them being put into one topic! so much for freedom of speech and getting help on specific things
There's no constitution here, just simple rules. Might want to give that a shot again right off the bat. This isn't a one man forum made for just any one person. It's been tried and tested, but successful and not, and I believe we have a formula that works quite well.
If you want help how to change LED's, it's the same. Otherwise any member can post 18 subjects on different parts when the whole thing is the same process for all of them.
You're not going to go through the drive-through ordering each individual item are you? Do it all in one trip.
You want specific, you got it in one shot. Doesn't matter if it's a modem or the space shuttle. If you want to change out an LED, you just do it with the info you just got in one take. If you're new to forums, you can always get help in on thread versus looking at it per-post. You get the attention, we all follow the thread, and as parts are solved and you move on to the next part seamlessly. And in this case, you may be able to solve it all and not need to ask again for the next part you work on.
If there's any further misunderstanding with this here or in the future, you're always free to discuss it via PM with any moderator. They're all clearly listed in each section's titles. Posting it publicly comes off completely differently.
Now as a member:
If you know how to solder, I'm not sure what the complication is. I mean, a 30W amp and speaker size has nothing to do with the LED you want to change. A 3v LED is a 3v LED. Carefully means other things too. They're probably on a motherboard, so that doesn't mean just heat the crap out of it with any old soldering gun. Depending on what you find inside and how they're attached, you might need a specific setting to safely get the part out and the new one in. You won't want to crank up the big Home Depot hobbyist gun or a butane unit if you have an IC close.
If you post a pic of what you find, we can match it up. You're going to have to open it up at some point, so tell us what you see. LED's are very common. The round ones come in 2 very common sizes and share very common natures. Then you may find some rectangular ones with are also quite common. The only freaks that get confusing are the IC type you might see flat-mounted on a motherboard.
I can't tell anything about an LED from seeing a picture of the product closed up. I can just tell you what's typical in LED's and what you might
find. If you want a bunch of "mights", I can do that all day.
