Is this what you are looking for.

You select the value of the resistor depending on how bright you what them, If the led's don't light up you have them backwards.

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

Thank you!!! I would like to see how they are mounted as well. That would also be very helpful.

Like this, You remove the metal casing solder the completed PCB to the red/black with the LEDs facing away from the wiring.

After you have tested it you can then refit the metal shield.

THANK YOU!!! I could not find this info anywhere. Someone sent them to me and was like oh cool, I wish I knew exactly how to use them.

Looks like I got some bad info about the LEDs and resistors that are just way too small. Which size should I use?

What type of problem are you having with the LEDs?

Which LED and resistor value did you use (part number of the LED)?

Online LED Calculator - Current Limiting Resistor Calculator for LED(s)

What are the specs of the LEDs you installed?  

Need to know their forward voltage drop (Vf) and maximum current rating.

Generally, an LEDs Vf value is 2 Vdc and the maximum current rating is 20mA; however, not all LEDs have the same exact specifications.

Vs = Vf + I(led) * Current limiting resitor value

For example:

5 Vdc = 2 Vdc + 20 mA (0.02 Amps) * R Ohms 

(5 V - 2 V)/ 0.02 Amps = R
 

R = 150 Ohms

However, using a slightly larger resistor value is better to keep the current flowing through the LED below its maximum rating.

 

NOTE: If you install the LEDs the wrong way around, they will not light up.

I have these SMD 0603 resistors and LEDs. I had no idea how tiny they are
I almost lost 2 of them. If I sneeze, they will be lost for sure.

I have misled you with the placement of the components.

The led's and resistor are the other way around so the Led's are on the edge of the PCB

So the leds are the red circles and the resistors re the blue circles

The leds can be 1608 (1.6mm X 0.8mm)

The resistors you could also use 1608

      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
       
      Thanks

      Hello
      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
