Hi.

I need help for a thing.

In my MSX Sanyo PHC 28L, one led is missing.
It's the led who notify you that the MSX is in function who was normaly set on the keyboard motherboard with all the keys.

That's why i wonder if someone knows where i can solder some wires and a led in order to replace the missing led.

Thank you for answering.

You sure is missing? Those leds normally was solded directly in the board and his long legs let them to peek trought a hole in the plastic.

But sometimes the led can be plucked in (A boring day and a ballpen) looking like missing but if you open the box you can see the led hanging from the board width his legs flexed, you can fix those legs an the led may rise again.
