I've been keeping an eye out for RGB led switches, I think that would be your best bet and just piggy back off the onboard LED.

Would allow the RGB switch to be configurable via escribe also.

 

Only problem is RGB momentary switches are a dime in a dozen.. haven't found many sizes beside a 16mm.

 

EDIT: If anyone has a DNA250C could you take some close up photo's of the LED ?

I wish it wasn't so close to the fire button...  I might wire a new on too.  Look forward to your help! 

 

You first... ;-)

Any progress? 

I identified the pins, couldn't find a switch suitable for the job. The RGB switches are just to large and bulky..

i was wondering if i can draw something around 340 ma of current from one of those pins without any magic smoke apering. It works in the regular 250 board but the driving components might be diffrent.

it´s a little work, but you could just take a normal led switch and replace the led with a smaller rgb, like the one on the board.

A lot of the LED switches are sealed tho.. at least the ones I have on hand, not sure how you would replace the LED.

I have attached the data sheet for the RGB should find what your looking for in there..

After it was all said and done, I didn't find it worth the effort, pushed on and put together my mod.

Is that a RGB strip ?

No,  sorry it´s just 24 of these  0805 red leds in parallel. but it´s probably possible to do rgb in the same manner. i guess it depends on if the stepdown module can keep up :)
