Led's In Wireless Controller Buttons!
Posted 30 April 2006 - 07:59 AM
ok, so here's what you want to do... using the communicator port on the bottom, the pins are labled 1-4. pin 1 and 3 put out 2 volts only when it's on. now, pins 1 and 4 will put out 2.5 volts when it's off and 3 volts when it's on. now, i used a test red led and it came on when using pins 1 and 3. the led's that i put in are white, so 2 volts didn't even make it blink.... now, the 2.5 volts that comes off 1 and 4 won't make them light up when it's off, but the 3 volts will when it comes on.
hope this helps.
ps... one thing that i have noticed, when the plug and chagre kit is pluged in, you still only get 3 volts, but no matter if it's charging or not, if it's pluged it, the LED's are always on. as far as battery life, i don't know yet, it's too soon to tell, since i just finished this about 10 mins ago. got to go to bed now for work, so i'll see later what the battery life is like.

it makes me laugh when i see black controllers, because everyone tried so hard to change the old xbox's controllers color to anything but black...and now black is popular, ha
I think its just the mindset of having something different than the mainstream.

Would you consider making one for me? Obviously i would pay you to do so, but if you would do it, could you PM me with a quote for one the same as yours?

ok, because only 3v comes out of the 2 and 4 holes, no resistors are required and the leds are not as bright as the potentially could be, because your led's inside the abxy buttons look a bit dim. Also, the the buttons feel bad now, like not responsive or sluggish?
i wouldn't really say sluggish, but they are different than stock. i got the wires out of the way nicely, so that's not the problem, but having to try and replicate the height correctly was a bitch. there again this was my first mod of this nature, but it worked out fine. yes, the led's are a little dim, probably due to 1. the voltage, and 2. i might could have gone deaper in the button, but i didn't want to risk taking out the rest of the white liner.
