1 Answer


You have to solder a new 3mm led I think. But being a newer model, could be a SMD led. It's not a hard job. Take the button out, take it apart and see where is the led. Also, when you put the new led, take care because of the polarity : + has to go to +, - to -, otherwise it will not go on.
