Re: lights for tfm

Remove top of amp, loosen and pull up lamp board being careful not to break connection, soldiering iron touch both sides at lamp connect to remove post, put in new lamp and resoldier-reassemble.

You will need to insert a resistor (probably @ 560 ohms, depending on the LED parameters) inline on the negative leg of the LED.

You can find "close" directions in my Sunfire LED mod thread:

Re: lights for tfm

How to post pictures on this forum--

There are two ways:

1. Start your post, then click on the "Upload Attachment" tab at the bottom, then follow directions

2. Post your pics to a web photo host, such as Photobucket, Flickr, etc., then copy the link & paste into the body of your post, then highlight the link & click on the Img button above (between [*] & URL buttons).
