Controller port LED query


Recommended Posts


I'm looking at doing my first case mod and really need to get an understanding of what i'm working with.

Looking at some 5mm Blue LED's from ebay, Specs

Not sure if I am working this out correctly so would these work with eachother?


Many thanks in advance

Here is a calculator to work out the resistor value and 1/8 watt to 1/4 watt is fine.

Soft modding is like masturbating, It gets the job done but it's nothing like the real thing.

Man that is a handy tool, thanks.

      I have a few of these LED pcbs for the OG Xbox controller ports. I am trying to locate a tutorial on how to install these, but I cant find one.
      Can anyone please point me in the right direction.

      I was given two broken original Xbox consoles to try and fix. After fixing the issues with one of them, I tried to test it. As I didn't have a controller for it I bought an adapter like the one in the picture (Adapter) to try and use either a USB arcade stick or one of my wired controllers for PC, Xbox 360, or Xbox One. I eventually bought a controller for it as I could not get anything to work with this adapter. So I am wondering, does this adapter serve any purpose? Has anybody gotten an arcade stick kit like the one in the second picture to work on the original Xbox?

      Hey, I've heard there is one. I'd love to have the full collection on my Xblast system
