Everdrive GBA LED Help?
« on: November 21, 2019, 07:38 AM »
I have an Everdrive GBA x5 and it works as it should but I have an issue with it. The LED that flashes every time I save or use the menu. It can get distracting especially if I play in public. Is there anyway to disable the LED or should I use paint to cover it?

Desolder it

It's likely the same issue I had with the Gameboy pocket's bright red LED, I just put a piece of duct tape in between the screen after opening the screen protector (Well the glue came off it anyway) and then just put the tape in reverse and put it back on so that the side that came off was stuck back again and best of all the bright power LED was gone for good.

There are also adhesive LED film for diffusion or dimming that you can buy. Or you can make it yourself if you can find some matt adhesive sheets in a hobby store.

What if I just cover the LED with electric tape. Could I try that?

As long as its black it may look a bit jarring. It also seems to flicker a lot more running native emulator games such as RPG ones as well as other compatable console ones, I think the only time it really cannot flicker is when it runs Super Nintendo roms as it's not running off the EDGBA that krikzz codes into it and likely PC Engine ones too.

I only intend to use it for GBA roms

Semi-transparent tape might be enough if you just want to dim it. I haven't tested it myself though so you have to experiment a bit and report results back.

Easiest way: use a droplet of black silicone to cover it.
