    The cost of return shipping makes it more of a pain in the butt to return it than it's worth, I was hoping I could somehow repair it myself.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    AFAIK, there is no way to repair broken LED's inside MR Saber blades. Your best bet is to seek out a blade conversion like THIS ONE

    Any skilled solderer could repair the strip if it's a bad LED. I just looked at mine and it doesn't look that difficult of a repair.

    Which saber is it? I have a spare LED strip from a Vader FX... Yeah, I bought two - one for the hilt and one for full blade.

    That's the one, it's the Vader FX... PM me regarding the LED strip.
