Wiimote Power Button Mod
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 1: Take your wiimote apart

Take your wiimote apart, unscrew it with the tri-wing screwdriver then pray it open.
WATCH OUT: watch it the front of the wiimote has clips that hold it in place nad if you pray the wrong way they will break off, causing trouble, what i do is pray the back up alittle bit then stick a butter knife in side and pull up.

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.

Step 3: Your done!

Now just put the PCB on the wiimote buttom, put some batts in it and check to see if your light works. If so put it back together and thats all, your done. this is my first instructable tell me how i did. if you have any questions just ask.
I am not at fault if you ruin your wiimote, this mod also voids your warrenty
(it does but just put it back together and take it back to walmoart and say i never worked ;) but you never heard this form me)
