    Hi, I'm trying to follow this guide to try and put a frontlight into my Game Boy Color.

    It claims to need a 47O resistor (more or less is fine) to work.
    I have an 8-pack of 2kO resistors, I don't really know much about them.

    If I use the 2kO resistors, following that guide, will it work? What are the risks?

    Here's a picture of the one I'm using.

    No risk,
    low light (almost none).

    Without knowing more about the circuit my only tip can be: get some 47 Ohm resistors.
