I think I figured out the problem. There isn't any voltage at all on the board for the LED. I tried the bulb on a 4 cell battery pack and it lights up fine. Both 5v and 3.7v bulbs. Anyone have any suggestions other then sending it in for repair???? If sending it in is the only solution, I'll have to live without the LED light. Damn, I really wanted to have the blue LED in the radio. Oh well...
