    could this damage my lilli?

    mine seems to be working fine.. you could probably just tape it down using some strong adhesive.. but that button is pretty stiff so it might unstick eventually..

    Woohoo. I thought this was going to be really tricky, but it turned out to be a piece of cake. The mod worked perfectly on the first try.

    FYI: Fry's has a 100 pk of 150k ohm resistors for $1.49 vs Radioshacks 12 bucks.

    For those yet to do this mod, be sure to get a small capacitor, some of the larger volt ones (50-100 volt) may be too big for the caseing.
    That's some tiny tiny soldering too. I don't know how I'm going to keep the solder from spilling over to the other resistors. Any tricks of the trade?
    Also, What if you use a non-polarized capacitor? Does it have to be polarized?

    Wouldn't you know it, tried to do this after a long stressful day.. When removing the smt resistor, I pulled the + pad off with it.. Arrgh..

    To make matters worse, I leant out my multi-meter to a buddy..

    Can anyone tell me if the pad directly below the removed resistor is in the same trace? (Yellow arrow)

    Ok.. I got my multi-meter back.. Yes that point is in the same trace.

    I soldered some Kynar to it, and patched it into the circuit, and all is well.

    EASY FIX:
    I just got a thin strip of tape and wrapped it around the button and board several times while the button was depressed. This fixated the button in the always on position. Works the same as shorting it.
