I have been tinkering with my PSP 1000 for about a week now, and decided to dive in and changing out that lame, white charging LED on my Droid, to a cool BLUE! Took me about 15 minutes (was having trouble getting the new LED in place. There is literally no room for an LED, tweezers, and a soldering iron. lol) I could put in any color LED I want in there. Some are brighter than others (blue is the brightest). I used 0603 SMD LED's, the exact same LED's that I use in my PSP and PS3 modding. If your attempting this stuff on your own, I suggest NO MORE than a 15watt soldering iron. I still feel this might be a little on the dangerous side for some of these components, but I am very good at what I do, so Im a little more sure of myself than those just venturing into this. ================================================== ================================================== I am offering this service to members of the community.

I kept thinking to myself, how I would route the wires, how to best set it up, whether to make it direct contact or now, whether or not to use a low-pass filter, and I finally decided on this. It took quite a bit of work, despite the fact that is looks more than simple. My back actually hurts from bending over my workbench for about 7 hours today, almost straight. This is what 8 cans of pop, and 2 Monsters will do to me. --> :icon_eek: LOL Here are some pics I took along the way! Here is the diagram, for those of you wanting to do this yourselves. This one shows where I notched a path for the wires and the LED. This shows the LED in place, on its side, soldered up, before I hot glued it in place. This one is from the under side of the speaker housing, showing where I routed the wires. This is a partial progress shot, so you get an idea how small this components are. And finally, and completed product! Tucked away nicely. Decided not to glue it in place, as Im not finished yet. This is a video of my small test to see how well sound reactive LEDs will work with the Droids hardware.
