Important things to note:

Laying cables in between and underneath bricks

Cables can fit in between and underneath LEGO® bricks, plates, and tiles providing they are laid correctly between the LEGO® studs. Do NOT forcefully join LEGO® together around cables; instead ensure they are laying comfortably in between each stud.

CAUTION: Forcing LEGO® to connect over a cable can result in damaging the cable and light.

Connecting cable connectors to Expansion Boards

Take extra care when inserting connectors to ports of Expansion Boards. Connectors can be inserted only one way. With the expansion board facing up, look for the soldered “=” symbol on the left side of the port. The connector side with the wires exposed should be facing toward the soldered “=” symbol as you insert into the port. If a plug won’t fit easily into a port connector, do not force it.

Incorrectly inserting the connector can can result in bent pins inside the port or possible overheating of the expansion board when connected.

 

Connecting cable connectors to Strip Lights

Take extra care when inserting connectors to ports on the Strip Lights. Connectors can be inserted only one way. With the Strip Light facing up, ensure the side of the connector with the wires exposed is facing down. If a plug won’t fit easily into a port connector, don’t force it. Doing so will damage the plug and the connector.

Connecting Micro Cable connectors to Micro Expansion Board Ports

Take extra care when inserting the micro connectors to micro ports of Micro Expansion Boards. Connecting Micro Bit Lights to Micro Expansion Boards is similar to connecting lights and cables to Strip Lights. With the expansion board facing up, ensure the side of the connector with the wires exposed is facing down. If a plug won’t fit easily into a port connector, do not force it. Use your fingernail to push the plastic part of the connector to the micro port.

 

Installing Bit Lights under LEGO® bricks and plates.

When installing Bit Lights under LEGO® pieces, ensure they are placed the correct way up (Yellow LED component exposed). You can either place them directly on top of LEGO® studs or in between.

 


OK, Let’s Begin!

 

1.) We will start by installing lights to the left section of the stadium. First disconnect all the main sections, then take the left section and disconnect the roof via the railing clips towards the inside.

 

 

2.) Disconnect the top section of seats, then take out the USB Power Cable and thread the connector end of the cable through the left space. Pull the cable in through the inside where the seats were connect to and connect it to a White Strip Light.

 

Take a 15cm Connecting Cable and connect it to the strip light’s right port, then using it’s adhesive backing, stick the Strip Light underneath the top seat section in the following position. Ensure the 15cm cable is on the left side, with the clips on the bottom as shown below.

 

Reconnect this section to the stadium ensuring the 15cm connecting cable is laid out the left side.

 

 

3.) Connect the other end of the 15cm cable to a new White Strip Light. Take a 30cm Connecting Cable and connect it to the strip light’s right port.

 

Take the roof section and turn it over so we can access underneath. Using the adhesive backing, stick the Strip Light underneath the roof towards the front as shown below.

 

Secure the 15cm cable underneath the white tile on the left side, then reconnect the roof to the stadium.

 

 

4.) Bring the 30cm cable across to the right side, then secure it underneath the following plate of curved bricks. Loop the cable around the following stud underneath, then reconnect the plate of curved bricks.

 

Reconnect the railings on the top of the roof, then secure the USB Cable underneath the following tile on the outside.

 

Connect the USB cable to your USB Power Bank or wall adaptor (sold separately) to test the strip lights installed to this section are working OK.

 

 

5.) Bring the 30cm Connecting Cable towards the back and secure it underneath the curved brick on the very end. Reconnect this section to the field plate section.

 

 

6.) Take the middle section and turn it around to the outside. Disconnect the two white pillar sections from each side by disconnecting them via the technic pins.

 

 

7.) Turn this section around to the inside, then slightly lift up the entire roof to allow us to disconnect the following sections from the middle section of seats.
