okay i have wired my controller up with 2 leds, there power source comes from the clips for the rumble pack. Everything goes well and the lights flicker on and off when it rumbles... Just what i wanted them to do... the problem is about 30 secs after i put the controller back together they left LED stopped working. So i replaced it.... Damm then the right one stopped working. So pretty much are the LED's burning out? or something?
even though still with one light attracted it doesn't have like a power surge and short?
or is it just cause the LEDs are like 2 years old. Any thoughts or suggestions on what it can do to get them both to work?


ohh and i am planning on replacing the LED's with the really bright blue ones, will i have to add resistors or anything before i install those ones, because they are a lot more expensive then that last batch of red and green LEDs.

Any thoughts or suggestion would be nice, Thx! sad.gif

Yeah, it sounds like they are burning out. That is easily fixed by just putting in a resistor for each LED.
