Introduction: Recycling a Damaged LED 50W
I have a damaged LED 36V 50W, I was thinking about throwing it to scrap. But I decided to turn it into one of 3V 50W.
It has 50 LED 1W each one, in series of 10. The microwire bonding are fused in all cases.
Step 1: Removing the Phosphorous Resin
To do this work is necessary to remove phosphorus resin to achieve the LEDS. All gold microwires be removed. (We must keep the resin phosphorous for later).
Step 2: Bonding Microwire
In this case is necesary to weld the microwire to the LEDS in parallel. At the end all LEDS light up with a 3V battery shining in blue color.
Step 3: Preparing the Phosphorous Resin
To prepare the phosphorus resin, cut it into small particles. Add transparent silicon for high temperature and mix. Insert the mixture into a plastic syringe without tip.
Step 4: Adding the Phosphorous to the LEDS
Distribute the mixture being careful not to press the microwires. Let dry for a few hours and It's ready to use.
I'll use my new LED 3V 50W to make a powerful lamp ;)
