Step 3: Get an LED and mod it.

You need a small LED, one that will fit inside the cart. If it is too big, you will not be able to close the cart.

You will also probably need to sand the LED's leads, so that they can fit into one of the holes on the now-exposed circuit board.

using this method can you charge the coin battery in pokemon gold?
&quot;This instructable is easier to complete on a later model GBC cart, due to there being empty space at the end of the cart.&quot; - Just for your information, the cartridges that don't have empty space at the end aren't earlier model GBC cartridges, but instead they're original Game Boy cartridges. The difference between original Game Boy cartridges and Game Boy Color cartridges is the bump (aka extra space) at the end. Correcting this may avoid further confusion. Other then that, the tutorial was very good, I plan on doing this to my Crystal cartridge before too long.
I'm using a Pokemon Silver circuitboard in a GBC cart shell, and I have absolutely no clue what I'm looking for. I'm using a Blue LED and I see 32 and GND on the board but there are 4 small holes within/around them along with a large one... Any way you could help me? I don't mean to be a bother and I know it's different for every game but... I don't know. Thank you. Anything you tell me will be appreciated..
My LED has a long and a short leg? Do I tape the short in the ground 32 one?<br>And then which one of the 8 holes do i put the long leg in?
cool! but i think the led is being overpowered. its orange when it should be green still, 5*s
Thanks! The reason for the orangeish (actually red) glow in the first picture is that it is a different one then the others! In that cartridge I used a red LED, the LED is not being overpowered. If, however, you use an LED that uses a lower voltage and would be overpowered by the cartridge be sure to use a resistor or it will overheat and blow out.
haha it works =]<br/>
