    Is it possible to change the color of the "blue light" strip on the Wii, I LED'd my Xboxes, but I had instructions, im afraid to try it on ,my Wii on my own, becuase there are none left in America i heard.

    PS. I am new to the forum, jsut saying! Hello! :D lol

    I am not sure you can and if wour not sure either I wouldn't touch it. If the Wii breaks then you'll be mad, so call Nintendo if you really want to know or just let it be.

    Nintendo wouldnt say yes or no.. its tampering.. Bye bye Warranty.. I wouldnt ask them lol. Im pretty sure its possible, i heard others have but its not the easiest thing to do. I wouldnt try it though, since if u break it your out of some $$.

    I would of thought it is possible, all you would have to do is replace the LEDs with a colour you would like. There would possibly be some soldering involved though.

    What's wrong with the blue anyway?

    Nothing is wrong with blue, its just that I am a big fan of standing out and modding :D, lol, You should see my Xboxes and playstations.

    Once your warranty is expired anyway, find someone who REALLY knows electronics and they could probably do it in a snap.

    modding sounds like a cool hobby.. now posting useless replies is more of a 'no-life' scenerio.
