I have a wireless xbox 360 controller. I want to change the color of the ring of light. Sooo, Heres my trouble. These controllers are suppose to have arrows pointing to the positive side of the led. Mine does not. I have studied the area in question until i became retarded. No sign of any positive symbols whatsoever. My question. do the positive sides on a WIRED controller have the same configuration as a wireless? I have a picture of a wired controller with all the arrows and positive signs to make my mouth water. But none on MY controller. ???

Are you refering to the "Polarity" of an installed Led?

If so, simply use an equivalent "throw away" Led as a tester. Connect and see if one direction works. If working, marke that locations polarity. If not working, reverse Led direction and reconnect. The "throw away" led serves to keep harms way away from actual led due to incorrect Led polarity installation.

The Led will not get harmed anyway, especially if you insert a low (10-1000) ohm resistor in series.

Now what remains is for you to return and provide the answer to your own question. I personally have neither the slightess clue of what the answer is nor Xbox boards. Trust me, this is the best way to learn, finding self resolve.
