Assistance With Niktronix Dome Lighting Tutorial.
Posted 29 June 2012 - 08:00 AM
After successfully tackling the ROL mod on the 360 controller Ive decided to attempt the lighting of the guide button. After tons of searching, I chose the Niktronix tutorial as it seemed to be one of the most current and somewhat easy to follow. I've begun assembling a material list for the mod and I think I have a pretty good grasp on things with the exception of one detail....the Transistor. I'm having a really hard time trying to identify the type of transistor that's being used in the tutorial. Would anyone be willing to point me in the right direction? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
PS - Anyone have a favorite guide they prefer to use for this type of mod?

Any general purpose NPN type Transistor will do, the 2N3904 for example is most commonly used, probably was used in that tutorial also as it's pinout matches how it's done there.
Collector - Goes to the LED Cathodes (- side)
Base - Goes to a Resistor and then to some switched voltage in the controller.
Emitter - Goes to Ground
