Change resistor inside LED illuminated switch?

Post by kymyc » Tue Dec 18, 2018 10:19 am

Does anyone know whether it would be possible to dissasemble this kind of 16 mm illuminated switch to change the internal resistor for the LED to work better with a lower voltage? Thanks.

Can you post a pic of the switch, please? It may well be possible. There is an excellent calculator on this site for working out the values of resistors to give different LED currents. Top LHS on this page.
