RGB LED replacement

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I just realized that one of my LED in my keyboard is not working properly. Upon inspection I came to the conclusion that the green light or diode [whatever it is called] is not working. The switch is fine and blue light does work from the same LED. It's just the green that's gone bad. 

My keyboard is Motospeed CK104 Outemu Blue. Can I replace the LED or something???

I really want it to work properly. It's kind of an OCD thing for me that the LED on one switch is not working.

Please advice.

Get an RMA. The LEDs on RGB keyboards are usually SMD, so don't expect to be able to do anything.

I think the hoomans put their builds here?

Why do you hoomans give your builds a name? Here's my build, which I shall call "Do as I Say, Not As I Do" (seriously, don't get this build)

Spoiler

Ryzen 1500X @3,925 GHz

Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo + 2x ML120

MSI B350 Tomahawk Arctic

2x8GB Corsair Vengeance LPX 3000 MHz CL15 (Micron B-die) @2933 MHz

Sapphire Radeon R9 280 Dual-X @1120 MHz / 1450 MHz

120GB 850 Evo

120GB Kingston SSD

500GB WD Blue

Cooler Master Elite 430

Seasonic Prime Titanium 650W

Logitech G710 with Kailh Box Jade

Logitech G502

HyperX Cloud

And my laptop, which I shall call "If It's Stupid But It Works" (It can actually play CS:GO at 50 FPS, and Civ V at 25 FPS)

Spoiler

Lenovo Thinkpad L460

Intel Core i3 6100U

4GB (probably) DDR4 2133 MHz

Intel HD Graphics 520 0.3-1.0 GHz

128GB Samsung MZ7LF128HCHP

And here would be where I would put a picture of my cat. But apparently, images are not allowed here. So take this instead (*ΦωΦ*)

Can't, it's outta warranty period. Isn't there any solution I can go with?

Not really. The LEDs are tiny and SMD, so replacing them will be difficult.

Can we find replacements LEDs? I bet someone can do that if I find LEDs right? I mean electricians?

Open it up. The last one I opened used a 1616 RGB-LED.

I'll look into it.

That's nonsense. They are difficult to change, not that expensive.

Ignore that, it's not true.

My friend had similar problem, local electrician was reluctant to do it, but after checking it out he did it in a half an hour or so, not sure, asked 10 euros for it, but it really depends on the guy.

you might be able to find some guy that can do it cheap but i would think that it will require skills to solder and need equipment to see what your doing. guys on here were talking about having troubles soldering 2020 smd so if its even smaller than that might be even harder. but im not expert so w/e the smd should be cheap it self.
