Is replacing the LEDs really worth the risk?
The sharpie will come off if you use rubbing alcohol. Apply some to a cotton pad or q-tip, rub the marks, and they will come off instantly. =)

The risk is minimal *if you know what you're doing.* If in doubt, do what I do - buy defective players off of eBay. Those you can't fix (I bought 4 and fixed 3 so far) may yet be usable for testing and practice. If you break one of those, you're only out $20 or $30, plus you get to keep the spare parts (batteries, headphone jack, casing, etc.)

Or buy a bottle of rubbing alcohol for $0.99 at Walgreens, haha.

I see your point, though, that's not a bad idea. I'll have to look into that, my case is quite scratched, scroll wheel is getting stuck, and it'd be nice to have some spare parts to mess around with...

You mean UV LEDs (a "BLACK LIGHT" is merely a nickname for a UV lamp.) They are readily available, the trick is finding them in the small SMD form factor required for the e200. They're usually either 3mm or 5mm LEDs (small keychain lights, pen lights, or flood lights when used in groups) or a high-powered emitter (think Luxeon output.)

The only problem with those is that they're bad for your eyes, especially in the dark because you can't readily tell that they're on. Near-UV (which appears as a dark purple) is pushing it as it is. Full UV light out of something that you point directly at your face is a Bad Thing, even at low power. If you want full UV, get a UV LED flashlight. You can find things like penlights at around $20, and they go up from there depending on how serious you are.

Tempting, but I still don't want that pointed at my face. Near-UV purple at most (though that should be enough to light up most UV-reactive stuff.)

I wouldn't cut my sansa open. Too precious lol. The Bright Blue light is very neat, I wouldn't change it. I'm the type of person that fiddles with software cos i usually read up about it and yea i'm an I.T. person, Information Tech job i wanna get for me. But yea doing things to my sansa hardware makes me think oo scary. Sounds great your ideas tho and the pix look great. It Depends what you like i suppose doesn't it?

Help me, please. I took off the backing and got to the battery. I've removed every screw except one. I can't get it out. Please help.

Try with a tiny screwdriver ? :P I can't see why you shouldn't be able to get it out.

My sansa is still normal blue It's quite unique enough I think. There's only 4 people with a sansa in my town

if you used the markers and dont like it or want another color then just put some nailpolish remover on a papertowl/tissue and wipe where the marker is and it will come right off or use some alcahol wipes they work just as good then with a dry papertowl/tissue wipe up excess remover

just make sure the battery is out because it is a liquid and as you should know liquids can easily kill your player

The fine-point black Sharpie to color the underside of the wheel works really well. This drove me nuts about my v2. Glad there's an easy fix!
