Can you help me out with this? I really need help Answered
I know its long but you would help me immensely if you answered my doubts, questions, and inquiries. I would greatly appreciate it.
Alright, I need to bring in a project for school. So I'm bringing in an XBOX controller to mod. To put in LED's for the ring, the guide button, and the ABXY buttons. However, Im not to sure what exactly to do for everything else other than the lights for the ring.
Obviously you solder the 0603 smd's but then for the guide button I want to put 2 2.5mm Ultraviolet Super High Brightness LED's for that. And before anything 5mm do fit. Im not sure why other tell me they dont but they do I've tried them.
But anyways, My rechargeable battery for my controller gives out 2.4 Volts. If I could I would use this but I do not know if this voltage is too low for all the lights to light up correctly. So I was thinking of using the battery pack with the 2 batteries which give out 5 volts. But If I dont have to please correct me.
In addition I'm not sure if I need resistors, but I heard if the supply voltage of the LED's are over 3.0 for a wireless controller, that you dont need any type of resistor. Im guessing I should solder them to the prongs or the rumble wires. So yeah.
Then I want to do the buttons. I will use 1 White 5mm High Brightness LED's for each of the buttons. They run at 3.3 volts. However again I do not know what to do. To solder it right to the prongs I'm guessing so that way they're on while my controller is also on.
There is one problem though, the rubber pad. How would I conect the wires to the prongs or rumble wires if the rubber pad is there to activate the buttons. I was thinking of making a very small hole in the rubber where no contact is needed to activate anything and run the wires through there. If I should'nt just tell me otherwise.
And if your still reading, Thank you for taking your time and doing so. So once again I would greatly appreciate it if you take your time and answer my inquiries.
Thanks, Really Appreciate it,
