(Help) Possible ways of modding Logitech G110 Backlight.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey Guys!

I was just curious if there is anyway possible of Modding the backlight on a keyboard, in my case specifically referring to the Logitech G110.

I'd love to take this on as a project if it were possible to do it, but I really don't even know what I would need to do it, or what I need to look for in order to do it. I am sure there has to be something out there that would work? Yes, I am willing to do surgery on my keyboard. nerdsmiley.png


exclamation.gif NOTE: Yes, I am fully aware that this would VOID my Logitech Warranty, none the less I would still like to give this a try, I hate how DIM the colors are even MAXED out on the profile.
Any tips on how I could get this project started would be appreciated. Like I don't even know what to look for to get started.

You would need to locate the LED's themselves and change the current limiting resistors to get the brightness up, but LED's have a habit of changing colors if you go to far and let too much voltage thought them then go night night. Surface mount resistors usually don't have the values on them so it will be some trial and error.

Kind of a can of worms if you have never done surface mount soldering before.

I saw a mod once of a G15 with color changing LED's may want to look that up as a starting point.

They've just tended to die whenever I've tried to put tons of voltage into them. I had one running at 8 volts for a couple of days; it died pretty quickly.
