    Well why wouldn't you?

    Some people like the blue light, Same reason I have a Falcon Northwest Fragbox with 2 blue cathodes inside to illuminate the insides.

    Yea it's a fashion thing, but why not eh?

    I like the blue light. I also reckon it'll look better when I've painted my Wii orange.

    Pics of the light allways On mod on the way, started it tonight will post when done.

    1st dont paint it thats just dumb.... make a silicon skin, 2nd with the light always on the led will eventually die and you wont have a light at all which is why nintendo should release replacement sensor bars into stores, those 2 little led's are only gonna last so long

    also it's like a 3 month old topic... let it die in 2 places there is almost a month between posts ffs

    Flames! any need to be like that?

    Why make a silicone skin? they look crap, you don't get the same effect as a nice paint job, As for replacement sensor bars they are to be made available or you can do what I did & make it wireless & just replace the LED's.

    The LED's in the sensor bar & the drive bar surround are rated at 100,000 hours & the LED's are available from any good electronics store like Maplin.

    As for this post being old, so what! I happen to of only just got my Wii as i live in the UK & since I seem to work 24/7 at the moment don't have as much time as I would like to search forums in search of answers, some people might want a n answer to "I want my blue light on all the time" I did, thats why I posted my answer to the problem here.

    yeh but by using that sensor bar doesn't it count as voiding your warranty as it's 3rd party, as does painting, you can't get a painted wii replaced coz it's painted, if it's not OEM specs they won't replace it they will blame the modification i.e. with painting they could say the problem was caused by overheating because of the paint. . . bad idea then your warranty is void and wii is shot. btw skins do not look crap i have seen quite a few nice ones for the gamecube flames, lightning etc and if you dont care about warranty wait for a replacement case as avalable for 360's like a clear one or an orange one or whatever or just leave it the way it is, the white is good enough

    oh and as for flaming that is not a flame if i called you a f***** retard for wanting to do it then thats a flame

    Yea it's a fair point, sensor bars have already been made available from nintendo as a spare so if mine dies then I'll buy another one, I'm fully aware of what entails voiding a warrenty, I don't think I've bought a processor, graphics card, console or any other piece of gaming equipment where I havn't voided the warrenty within the first 6 months.

    As for painting I, I reckon a silicone skin is more likley to over heat the console than an acrylic based paint. I've searched for Wii skins on the net & none of them actually look any good all of them leave a white border around the side & front panels of the console & look some what "cheap" & take away from the simple design of the Wii. it's like taking a Ferrari & putting a halfords body kit on it.

    Lastly I'm not 100% sure but I think you may have ready my post incorrectly the first time, I refer to

    When i said about my allways on hack I was refering to the LED's surrounding the Drive Bay, not the sensor bar. The sensor bar LED's, technically they are in an allways on state anyway as you can power on the console from the remote.
