Disabling power LED

Recommended Posts



I have the Model B board (SHD 1602 LCD B). It has a bright red LED in the top right corner. I would like to disable it so that I can use the device in a dark room without lighting it up.


From reading the schematic, it looks like I need to cut one lead of resistor R1, which is a 1K resistor just to the right of the "select" button.


Is that correct? Has anyone tried this?
