Faulty LED light strip

Recommended Posts

Hi all, hopefully an easy one.

An LED on my UM2 has failed (I believe) which has caused the remaining 5 in that segment to go dim - please see picture. Red arrow is failed LED.

Can I safely chop that segment of 6 LEDs out without any detrimental effect to the printer? It'll just draw slightly less power right?

Forgive me if that's a stupid question - mechanical background! :-)

Cheers,

Matt.
