Step 6: Light Emitting Diode (LED)

Insert and solder the LED, labeled D1 on the PCB. It is polarized, so be sure to put the longer (positive) lead in the hole with the square outline, on the right side of the part. Bend the leads so it doesn’t fall out, then solder and clip the leads.

Step 7: Reset button

The reset button is used to reset the Arduino, since the Video Game Shield obstructs the Arduino’ own reset button. It might be easier to put the button in place if you first straighten the leads with a pliers. The button belongs just below the LED from the previous step.
