Is it too difficult to find out what the voltage of the LED is that you want to replace? I may very well be wrong about this, OK? But replacing a ?5v LED with a 1.7v LED seems less than smart--if you wish to avoid doing the math to see how a different LED changes the value of the resistor(s) needed for the circuit.

When I installed car stereo's, on Denon units you had the option of changing your display by changing the color of the LED's. Simple really, we had a plethora of "mouse rubbers" that were colored and would slip on perfectly over the LED's and change the color. We had red, blue, orange, white, green, purple, and pink.

First I've heard of these "mouse rubbers." Darned good idea!
