I’m not sure what’s gone wrong here. I’m using these 3mm red LEDs with a couple different 1/8 watt resistors, from 330 ohms down to 150, and it still seems really dim at 150. I haven’t seated the LED in a button yet, so it might look brighter, but it really doesn’t seem nearly bright enough. What could the problem be? I’m using the VCC on a Madcatz retro stick PCB as a power source, and it looks like it’s soldered properly.
So far, I’ve finished all the busy work on this stick while pondering this problem, and I’m not sure what else to do. I’ll post pics once the stick is finished, but it’s looking really nice so far. Fully functional now…just need those LEDs working. Using this image as art–looks classy with Seimitsu clear buttons and cutout art.
Thanks for any help!
edit: Is it just a dim LED? I just swapped it for a green one which looks nice and bright.
