My first LED problem in 5 years

Recommended Posts

I've just noticed that the right hand half of the LED for the Tap Tempo/Tuner button has dimmed considerably . The other half remains bright, Is this a problem with the LED itself and can this be fixed?

I'm sure it can be fixed but since it's 5 years old and out of warranty, is this issue crucial enough to spend the money on getting it fixed?

Interestingly, mine did the same thing on the same LED. Mine is just under two years old and still under warrantee so it's at the local shop getting fixed.

 

In my case it was flickering on and off randomly so it was drawing attention to itself. My guess is it's a bad solder joint on my unit since the LED was obviously working some of the time. If it wasn't under warrantee there's a good chance I would have taken things apart to get a good look myself. (But I also have the tools in my shop to work on surface mount electronics)

I fixed mine but it was a lot of hassle, I probably wouldn't attempt it again.
