Illuminated Button Issues
« on: April 06, 2014, 01:05:58 AM »
I got an illuminated button for my DNA30 build and am having some trouble.  Its a stainless steel button with a blue lighted ring around the outside of the button.  Ideally, i'd like it to not be lit until I press the button and then have it light up while pressed.  I can't seem to figure the wiring out to get it to work right.  The button works fine when it's wired into the DNA but when I wire to the posts for the light ring, the light comes on without it being pressed and goes off when I press it; the exact opposite of what id like it to do.

The button has 4 posts on the bottom; 2 for the button that are unmarked, and 2 for the light; 1 with a + and 1 with a -.  Any idea on the proper way to wire it to make it function properly?  I got it off Digikey and the spec sheet has nothing on it.
Take the rim job, Franks rim tastes like fruity pebbles, mmmm delicio

I'd consider reversing the light wires

You need to build a circuit for that, but I am of no use in that area.
