I have the exact same problem with my S8.3 that I purchased a few months ago. It's just the blue LED that doesn't light up, otherwise it seems to output bass and the volume control works. Can I change the led? Any suggestions?
Re: Energy S 8.3 Woofer; blue led doesen't light up
Bought a S10.3 in jan/2010, LED died a month later. I've repaired it by myself. After inspecting circuit, I've found that their design puts almost 14V of reverse bias upon that poor blue LED. These components are not usually expected to sustain more than 5V of reverse polarization. So, in my opinion, there is a design flaw. To make a long lasting repair, you just need to insert a general purpose diode in series with the LED, such as an inexpensive 1N4148 ($0.05). And, of course, any readily available 3V, 5mm, through-hole round blue LED (I think crystal clear should be better).

I bought a few LED Basketball Court Lights last month from www.ledlightexpert.com. Up to this point, they have been doing fine and performing more than my expectations. This is a good light store with a vast selection of different types of LED lights such as 400 Watt Metal Halide Led Retrofit and LED Canopy light. There are lights for ceiling, room walls and tennis or basketball courts. You can find lights in varying lumens, color and wattage and these are best for almost any type of ambience. Very fantastic collection and great pricing! The lights are very bright and illuminate a wider area very easily and appropriately. There is no dark area and I love the even lighting all around the court. I plan to buy a few LED Tennis Court Lights in the coming month. As these are LED lights, I hope to find lower energy expenses when my next bill comes up.
Be very careful. Mine started making a knocking sound and a few minutes later flames came out of the side of it. Thank God I was home and put the fire out. Light is only 5 months old. If you purchased fromaquatraders, I would request a refund and return it. They are bad about selling defective odyssea fixtures
I have replaced several of the indicator lights in the control knobs.
Turns out that Dacor doesn't sell exact replacement lights (actually LED modules).
What I did was to go to a local electronics supply store and purchase Blue replacement LEDs and a current limiting resistor to connect in series. Replacement LEDs can vary in brightness depending on your taste ... I chose a super bright LED which makes the control knobs noticeably brighter. The value of resistor will vary depending on the LED you choose (brighter LEDs need slightly more current and as such the resistor value will be slightly less).
Once you've opened the range from the top (remove knobs, grates and burners) then remove a few screws and the entire unit opens with a hinge in the back. Look over the LED light modules which shine just below each knob and fashion a replacement LED assembly.
Total material cost per LED unit was ~ $2-3 (LED, resistor, wire and heat-shrink tubing)
