RGB LEDs for IL translucent buttons?
« on: May 16, 2017, 07:43:34 pm »
I am trying to order everything for my CP but I am hitting a snag ordering the LEDs.  I am planning on ordering most of my stuff from Paradise Arcade but they are out of the RGB LEDs and likely will be for awhile.  Is there another good option or will it be a ton more work and not worth it?

Product in question

Those are out of stock because they were replaced by these.

I actually had a question about that.  It says rev a in the name of the product you posted but in the description of the one I posted it says they are the "new and improved version"...  Which is the new one?  Regardless both are out of stock and have been for at least a few weeks (unless I missed a fast selling shipment).  I have been waiting for either product to come in to make an order for buttons and LEDs.

Me, these are the ones:

Which I try to have, desperately, but still in rupture for several months. I will take the Ultralux buttons (Rgb) to replace the Uila s flash

That LEDs listed in the first thread catch on the black lL plungers. I had to file the pcb down and bend the plungers. Really annoying.

I was targeting 20 buttons and know I got extras. I have the harnesses for them too. I'll dig them out tonight.

I got these:  https://paradisearcadeshop.com/button-leds/100-il-lumination-rgb-5vdc-led-.html

I'm waiting for the translucent button with black plunger to come back in stock..  They told me into September.

Cool be prepared to file off the sides of that pcb and then bend the plastic plunger with needle nose plyers. Other than that they are great.

I purchased a red button just to test the microswitch and the LED's.  They fit very snug but no issues.  So hopefully the translucent one is fine.

No those will be fine, its the clear ones with the black plungers that have an issue. I contacted them and was told to file the PCB or bend the plunger. I had to do both and they still sometimes catch. They will fit just fine it is when you press the button it will clip the PCB.
