    Hey guys. So I have some spare PL9823 LEDs and an arduino, and I was thinking about installing them on my CECH-2504A PS3. From what I read, there is 5v of power on the blue ray drive(which I don't use, since I copied all of my games in the HDD and play them with webman), but I don't feel confident enough to solder there. Anyone that knows an easy to solder place that can provide 5v? I don't need much current. I m talking about 5 LEDs max + a Chinese arduino nano clone.
    Thanks!

    Tunnel Vision... I once spent three hours at work diagnosing a computer. When a co-worker came in she noticed the video cable wasn't plugged into the monitor.
