Instructables
Have you ever wondered if your wiimote was on cause your hands were over the LEDS, or you not know if when you turn the power off to your wii if it dreally goes off, well now you'll know. Here is my tutorail for modding ur power button on your wiimote.
What you need-
One tri-wing screwdriver
One 3mm LED of you color choice
One resistor
One soldering iron with solder
About 3 inchs or wire.
One wiimote

Step 2: Get your LED and wiring ready and put it in place

You get to choose your color of led, but its a light color like red, orange, yellow, or UV it will be wise to put a 12k resistor on it. Also make sure its a 3mm LED, 5 is to big.
Once you get your LED out along with your 3 or so inchs of wire out and soldered. Its time to put it in place. You might have to work with the length of wire so just take it slow and dont burn or kill someone or something.
Ok well lets solder the wire in place once you have your 3mm LED soldered at the other points.
Make sure you dont switch the points up or the led wont work and could die.

When I installed the LED and then put the batteries, the LED just didn´t stop blinking (without pressing any button) and, of course, pressing the WiiMote's buttons didn´t work to stop it ( and the wiimote itself didn´t work. I removed the LED and it was all right).

May I have some help? .-. Oh and by the way: I checked, and there was not any contact with other terminal different than those two from the photo .-.

Could you show me some pictures as to what you are referring to. If you had the led soldered into the wiimote and the wiimote didnt work till you took the led off the board then you had it in the wrong place or it was shorting something out on the board.

il buy one from you thats sooooooooooooooooo cool
Wiimote Master (author)  jamesk6 years ago
Sure $70
ive seen wiimotes on ebay for ten bucks
oh wait i thought you said that the wiimote costs 70 dollars
Wiimote Master (author)  ReCreate5 years ago
The Wiimote brand new cost $40 at a store. The guy was asking to buy a modded one, which can be done for $70.
Ouch...I dont think many people well want a modded one from you They could buy a 15 dollar used one on ebay do it themselfs and save...65 dollars What if i sent you one that i bough for 15 dollars and i payed you to send it back

Sure I don't mind. I like modding for the fun of it but it is always nice to make a little money doing it. (to pay for cost and labor) Also that $70 mark has its reasons, one is that that price includes all cost including shipping, two is to defer people away from being lazy and buy one so they make it themselves. (PM me if you still want to talk about this)
to quote some weird people on a how to make a halo spartan helmet "WHY WASTES OUR LE3T H4XOR SKILLS TO M4XES SUMTIN WHEN WE CAN BORTZ IT" fyi bortz was the weird guys way of saying buy
I noticed you have more than one LED active at a time. I was wondering how you went about doing this, because I'm interested in doing more than one LED in one remote. I'm assuming you placed them in series, but wasn't sure. Maybe you could make an instructable on how to do multiple LEDs on one remote? If you could, that'd be great :D
i tried to mod my wiimote with led under the A button and i work for like 10sec and now it act like the wiimote is fryed HELP ME !!!!

That means you either blew a fuse or blew up the wiimote. Follow my repair guide on this Instructable. http://www.instructables.com/id/Muiltple-Wiimote-mods-all-in-One./

The power glow looks like an overdose in the picture. Does it look really good in person. If you say yes I will add this.
Wiimote Master (author)  twist2b6 years ago

i could make one myself i just dont want to break my wiimote
Wiimote Master (author)  jamesk6 years ago
Well the $70 will pay for shipping, wiimote, supplys, and labor. And i dont even know how much shipping will be. If you really want me to make you a modded wiimote, talk to me using email.

what ohm resistor did you use?
Wiimote Master (author)  craig36 years ago
12k if i remeber right. If you buy LEDS form ebay you get free resistors.
Dose the light only turn on when it is connected or dose it turn on when you try to connect the wii remote to the wii?
Wiimote Master (author)  soccerskyman7 years ago
it turns on whenever your wiimote is on.

Nice instructable. there has been surprisingly little wii mods made so far you may want to turn your spell checker on though.
Hey Steven07,

There are actually quite a few Wii mods out there. Check here for lots:
