Title: Led not strong enough
Post by: gemini82 on February 04, 2008, 04:21:28 PM
i purchased these led from radio shack  5mm Green LED  http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?summary=summary&techSpecs=techSpecs&currentTab=features&cp=&custRatings=custRatings&features=features&accessories=accessories&productId=2062572&support=support&tab=techSpecs (http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?summary=summary&techSpecs=techSpecs&currentTab=features&cp=&custRatings=custRatings&features=features&accessories=accessories&productId=2062572&support=support&tab=techSpecs)

I've hooked it up to four 1.5 AAA batterires. The problem is the wii mote doesn't detect the IR LED's. Any suggestions? or quick fixes

You need a Infrared LED not a green LED, that is the problem ;)

Try this one (http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2062565&cp=2032058.2032233.2032298&parentPage=family)
