We have quite a lively group in the Sansa forums that have been violating their precious hardware. In this episode one of the members was not a fan of the blue scroll wheel. So soldering iron and flux in hand forum member Affenjunge tears into his e250 and changes the lights to… red. There are four LED’s located behind the wheel so it would be possible to create a multi-color-disco-tech Sansa.
So if you have never picked up a soldering iron or do not know what flux is you should leave this up to the pros. If you do have a steady hand, a 15 watt soldering iron, and you don’t mind voiding your warranty, then you may proceed.
