Sorry to disagree, David. It's a light bulb. When these puppies were built, there was no such thing as a blue LED, or a white one. You could substitute a blue LED now by calculating the proper value of resistor and substituting it for the existing one -- solder to the resistor leads and then clip out the old resistor. If you want the formula to calculate the resistor, let me know.
