    I have a Bud that I got in 2018. A few days ago I realized that the amp was turned on but the light was not on. Henriksen support says that the LED is not user replaceable, and that I would need to ship it to them to get it fixed. Since it doesn't effect that way the amp works, and I don't want to pay to have it shipped, I thought that I would see whether I could remove the light myself, then see if it was a standard component that I could find on the internet. After all, the worst that happens is that the light continues not to work.

    I have started the work but am at a point where I will need to use a little (very little, I hope) force to go any further. Before I do that I thought I'd see if anyone else has had this problem and could shed some light (pun intended) on the procedure. I always think of LEDs as being very long lasting and it seems strange that mine has bitten the dust.

    The average LED will last for a long time. But that's average, and some don't last as long. I don't have a Bud, so I have no recommendation about replacing the LED. It's easy enough to unsolder an LED and solder a new one in place, but I have no idea how hard it would be to get things apart to reach the board it's soldered onto.
