    good idea or bad idea...you tell me

    Advertisement



    im getting fed up with the white lite in my pearl drowning out my blue lite...(talking about my color pearl app)

    I was wondering if it would be a good idea to either cover or remove (in sum way) the white lite all together...

    Like, open it up as if I were gonna do a trackball clean and the just remove or jab out the lite

    Sounds like a good idea or is this just a madmans last resort?

    I'm this close | |

    I personally wouldn't do it myself. If at all possible, I'd second the suggestion about coloring the light. Either that, or choose another color. Not that it helps you much. Either way I'm sure that you'd void aby warranty or repair claims, if needed.

    I didn't want to do anything permanent, so i took a small piece of tape, colored it blue, and placed it on the LED light. just my 2 cents.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~led's don't get that hot I don't think....I could be wrong...but the ones in the pearl are so small I doubt they would....not only that but if they were to get extremely hot it would certainly pose.a hazard in general....I could be wrong though

    LEDs don't get hot period...that's why they're so nifty and used almost everywhere...they consume almost no power...and last FOREVER!...you'll be fine sticking tape over it...only way that will melt that tape is if you leave your BB in direct sunlight for toooooo long other than that you should be green ...hope this helps
