List of LEDs needed to convert interior button color?
 
I'd like to convert all the buttons from the blah-green to red. To minimize downtime, I was hoping someone already knows what's needed so I don't have to teardown, reassemble, order, teardown, reassemble...

Also, I know most, if not all, of the button windows have a teal layer on the inside, is there any way to remove this? I pointed a red LED through one and it appeared amber. I'm fine with amber if I can't get red

TIA :thumbsup:

they have incandescent bulbs with a bluish cap over it.

some of the colors like the HVAC reds are in the film and housing

i would change everything to leds; it will require addding the proper resistance as well as LEDs.

I think it's different in each area, some are LEDs, some are incandescent. For example, in the Homelink unit, the incan. bulbs are clear and the tealish color is built into the button (a tint on the inside of the "window").

Changing everything to LED is the plan

yes, my post was about the hvac.

i dont know that many beyond diboblo have even taken many beyond the center stack apart; since center stack is the one that goes out.

break some new ground. or see what bob might share with a do-it-yourselfer?

it will be way eaier to ship it all to diboblo. not all the switches use the same power and he has it down to a science.

lol I'm not one to take the easy way out, check my build thread

Some people would rather pay others to do work, I'd rather work on my own stuff myself when I can. I know my way around a PCB and I've worked with SMDs before so it's just a matter of figuring out which LEDs I need.

then i would suggest taking it apart and determining what leds you will need. i wouldnt follow what other members on here have suggested in other threads because i went that route and the leds didnt last 6 months. also make sure you buy everyhting from one supplier to avoid have slight differences in color.
