  1. Does anyone have experience soldering LEDs? I've now lost both blue channels (2 of 4) on my ocean revive lights. Thankfully they're on each end of my tank and the two middle units work just fine. OR sent replacement blue diods. I'm reluctant to get started as I've never soldered. Any help would greatly be appreciated!

    Did you lose individual diodes, or did all of them blues drop out at once?

    I have a lot of experience normal soldering, not so much surface mount. I can do it though
  4. The way they're wired if one goes they all go.
  5. @Brian, do you have time for a new project? My schedule opens up after Wednesday next week. I would really appreciate the help AND get to learn a new skill! :)
