So, I hate blue LED power lights as they just bug my eyes, especially at night, so I figured I'd lower the brightness AND swap so that LED was red instead of blue when it was powered on. But then I realized the power off state would be the annoying blue, and I don't need an LED on all the time telling me my monitor is off (pet peeve). So, I just disconnected the blue pin (actually it broke off in the process, darn) and routed the red + pin to the pad that's powered when the unit is on. I used a 10Kohm resistor I had left on my table from rebuilding my amp in series with the LED to lower the brightness. I tried a few values but landed on 10Kohm as it was really dim. Notice I also added a bit of electrical tape to insulate the red + pin from the old pad it went into.
So here is the 10Kohm dim red mod:
EDIT: This is pretty dim with the bezel on, so if you don't mind seeing a bit more light, use a smaller resistor, maybe 3Kohm. If you're brave enough to do this, I'd hope you're smart enough to know how to try out different values to find what suits you.Edited by dascth - 4/23/13 at 1:15am
