    I am trying to replace the LEDs in my Wiimote and I got 3 done but the last one I tore off the positive pad for player 2 does anyone have an alternate solder point that I can use?

    Thanks

    you may need to change the resistors,
    different colour leds use different voltages.
    blue for example uses about 4v for maximum brightness, white too.
    but red is max 2.2v

    so just swapping in red will be VERY bright, but may fail after a while.
