RE: Replacment LEDs
it shouldn't really matter, the regular standard LED will work

RE: Replacment LEDs
Try measuring them maybe? The sizes 0603 and 0805 are in 100ths of an inch. The size 0603 means that its 6/100 inches by 3/100 inches. So just try measuring the LEDs you have and matching the sizes up.

Thats a given but if they go out there must be a way to replace them. Iv seen some people add normal Leds but there has to be a close to factory spec.

RE: Replacment LEDs
for me, I changed the sync (online) LED to other color so that I can find out the status quickly.

I did not measure the size, just welding on and it lights.

If you would like the LED to have longer life; just adjust the resistor and measure the Ampère lower than 30mA(for most ø3mm and ø5mm LEDs) is fine. lower Ampère ; longer the life of your replaced LED.

RE: Replacment LEDs
Did the resistor effect how bright the led was ? Did you just add any led to the board or the factory type also is there a (+ & -) on the led . Thanks for any advice.

RE: Replacment LEDs
Do you have a multimeter?

use the diode mode to know the +/- (pls also ref http://www.sciencelobby.com/components/diode.html )

For the +/- onboard, see here:
