Krypt Tower LED Light replacement ideas

Recommended Posts

mtnbkr738

Hi Everyone,

So I bought a Krypt Tower with lights on it in May.

http://www.bulletlines.com/Speaker-Light-Bar-Combo-p/74.htm

One of the LED lights burned out in July.

No warranty, they want $65 to replace it. ....OUCH!

here is the question: it looks like the LED CHIP has some corrosion on it...turns out the grommet sealing the light was not secure and rain water got inside. CAn i just replace this little chip? anywhere to find this? .... it seems if i could replace the chip, then the housing and even the led bulbs seem fine...this would be a simple solder job.

ANY thoughts???? thx!

Wouldn't hurt to take your soldering iron and re-solder the connections. You could have a bad solder joint...quick and easy to try anyway if you haven't already.

H everyone...thx for the input.

I tried to clean off and check all solders... light did come on for about 1 minute and that was the end...

I found the same bulb on ebay...

I may have to customize and solder the connections--but it looks identical...i guess i originally figured it was some custom marine light...not just a $3 light on ebay or amazon.

Ill keep you posted when i get the light installed.

thx again

Did you run your lamp without the heat sink? If so, you had it repaired and then killed it by overheating.
