Gashapon Gaia Memory Mod (II)...

Finished fixing my gashapon Gaia Memories that have a super hard to press button that I cannot use in my DX Lost Driver... And added LEDs to some of them, for fun... Last time I tried with the LED connect directly to the 2 terminals of the speaker, and it did work quite well for LEDs that need low voltage (eg. red, yellow, and maybe green, which is a bit of not so bright...) but not for LEDs of blue, purple, etc. So I tried another way of fixing (see the last picture of this post), and it work pretty well, though I am still not really satisfied with the purple. When making short presses for the different sounds, the LED tends to light up a little longer if connected this way, though the henshin sounds (long press of button) makes no difference...


The Xtreme memory uses a running-light-multicolour LED that has 3 colours (blue, red, green. The green cannot be seen so easily though) inside it...


Nearly forgotten about the Double memory...




This is the connection for low voltage LEDs (eg. yellow, red, maybe green)...


This is the connection for higher voltage LEDs (eg. purple, blue, and once again maybe green)... And if you look at the top left side of the circuit board, you can see 3 sets of copper pads, which are switches to activate the 2 ~ 3 different sounds recorded on the circuit board.  I tried with the Kuuga memory, and gave my little nephew a Kiva memory! So fun...
