FS: Kaytrim's Electronics

Welcome to Kaytrim’s Electronics. I will be offering LED lighting solutions for your custom joysticks. These boards are handmade and easy to add to your custom joystick. Please send all purchase orders to my email kaytrimskustoms@gmail.com. All orders are to be paid by PayPal only.

The first product that I am offering is the Button Flash. This circuit will light the button each time it is pressed. To provide the most compatibility this is packaged with LEDs of your color choice and is set for 5v power. It will still work with 3.3v power just not quite as bright. The Button Flash also comes with color coded screw terminals for ease of installation and includes full installation instructions. This board comes in 6 or 12 button configuration.

The LED colors I have on hand are:

Here is a picture of the 6 Button Flash installed.
Price: $30 plus shipping


Here is a picture of the 12 Button Flash installed.
Price: $45 plus shipping


And here is a video of the Button Flash in action.

The Second offering is lit Bubble Top Joysticks. Send me your current joystick shaft and bubbletop or order the parts from LizardLick and have them shipped to me. I’ll drill out the shaft and install the LED for you including the necessary resistor for 5v power. I can do this for Sanwa or Seimitsu joysticks.

Price: $25 plus shipping


Introducing the Joystick Flash. Sorry this is not the discontinued Sanwa Flash joysticks. This little board will light up the bubble top when it is moved in a direction. This is not the same IC chip as the Button Flash. You run the risk if blowing your LED if you use the Button Flash board in this manner.

Price: $20 Plus Shipping

Combined with the lit Bubble Top Joystick $40 plus shipping.

The tiny board…

How will the bubbletop wiring be setup? Do we just connect a ground from our PCB’s, or do/can we use your Button Flash board in conjunction?

It can be done either way. The wires will come out the bottom of the joystick shaft. Just connect them to any convenient power and ground. I’ll try and post pics of the LED colors I have tonight.

thats whats up!
you’ll save me the trouble of trying to build one of those damn things, seems simple enough but why stress out when you can just purchase one from Kaytrim :woot:

and these work fine with any psx pcb ? no extra power needed ?

This is the very same system that I use in my custom sticks. There have been no complaints from my customers.

Thats what I’m thinking hmm.

Man I can’t wait funny thing is like 2 days before I saw this I was reading through the thread about this and thinking how cool would it be for someone to make a kit to sell on here and then bam whoop there it is. Kaytrim is a man of all trates.

I’ll pack up your stuff tonight Rugedman. You should have it by the weekend.

Here is the lit bubbletop and button flash in action.



Thanks Kaytrim got my 6 button flash kit today can’t wait to install.

The Joystick Flash has passed the test. I have limited quantities on these. First Come, First Serve.

I’m sorry Kaytrim but I need a little help I really don’t understand what really hooks up to the ground since all grounds are daisy changed can I use that or does it need a separate ground?
And for future dumb questions I might ask would you rather me post in the light activation thread or is here fine.


Hey, that’s my stick ! :lovin:

All grounds are the same, no need for a separate one. Take the ground from the pad and connect it to the Button Flash. Then go from the Button Flash (same screw) to the ground daisy chain. The buttons will connect the same way. From the pad to a green screw on the Button Flash. Then from that same screw to the button. Take the yellow screw of the pair and connect it to the anode of the LED, the longer wire. The other lead on the LED can be soldered to the ground daisy chain.

I’ll get a better diagram drawn up later tonight.


p.s. go ahead and post your questions here because they pertain to my boards.

Here is the diagram I promised.
