Where do I find the positive and negative power sources on the board?

I am looking for power sources on the GameCube Controller motherboard. I need a positive and negative so I can connect some joystick LED's but I don't know where they are. Could anyone help me? I have two wires that I need to solder I just don't know where I need to solder them. Any help is appreciated.

Here's an image of LED Joysticks on PS4 controllers. It's the same concept but I want to do this with GameCube Controllers.

@zad what you need to do is to post an image of your circuit board so we can point out where to solder to. It is one thing to look at what you want to do but you need to help us to help you. Use this guide Adding images to an existing question to do so.

Use your multimeter and trace where pin 1 terminates on the board. Pin 1 carries 5V and pins 2 and 5 are ground.
