    Yes. I bridged them with tiny 0603 LEDs.

    Did you return the LED to a ground?

    Yes, and when I touch a wire from a coin battery negative to the CF ground, and then the positive to the LED positive on the CF, the accent LEDs light up.

    I just tested it again with the coin battery, and three LEDs are lighting up at the same time. Only one should light up. I clearly have some wiring problems. I'm going to detach all the accents and start over again. Thanks for helping me troubleshoot.

    Yin could also have a programming problem. Make sure you check the files that controls the accent LEDs

    So I had my CF wired up. Just added the battery, the speakers and the six and ignition switches. It worked great. Didn’t add any LEDs yet. Just testing. Now. It doesn’t do anything. All the sudden. I didn’t even change anything. I noticed if I attach an LED to the power pins on the board it lights up. But when I attach it to the LED pins on opposite side, nothing happens. No sound overall. Nothing. Boggling my mind...it all worked. Then just didn’t. Help?

    Sorry to butt in.
    Not sure if this has been covered, but I seem to have some sort of issue with the CFx.
    I'm all wired up (except LED's) I can change sound fonts, but when I go to power on the board I get a message "diatum cell missing". I'm not sure why its saying I have no power cell.
    So could it be
    Low battery?
    No LED hooked up?
    Switch mode?
    Has this been encountered yet?

    Usually, that means it’s a (near) dead battery as I recall.

    Thanks for the reply. I'm currently looking for the entry in the manual. I seem to recall having read it not sure where. As well I'm charging the battery.

    Hey all, I’m in the middle of an install, and seem to have hit a problem. My board doesn’t detect swing sounds. I’ve talked with Erv and he said it is most likely a bad capacitor, and told me how to find it on the board voltage map.
    Only problem is... I’m not sure what exactly the board voltage map is. I had figured it was something in RICE, but for the life of me I can’t find it. Anyone know how to access that?
