hey guys! I've seen some ppl with their xbox power LED glowing blue. Recently, I opened my front panel and saw that the LEDs had 3 legs, where can you get these 3 legged LEDs????

you are correct sir

they're bi-colored leds. each color has its own positive leg, and they share the middle one as the negative leg

well most people know what the +ive and -ive sides of an led look like (if you dont you can simply look at one) and you can clearly see on the pic that there are 2 +ive 'bits' on the outsides and a -ive in the middle
so thats proof the diagrams are right biggrin.gif lol
