  1. Game Watcher dip switches?

    OK, I guess my next question is how do you choose trail or feeder? The dips, or? It is all good Ralph, I'm just wanting a little delay in there and can't seem to find the info on how to get to that one minute delay
  2. Can the dip switches (3) on a Game Watcher board be used to set different delay times between pics, or is the delay a pre-set?
  3. s600 flash replacement

    Nope, but I just did .....and it worked! Thanks my friend.
  4. I have an s600 in a build and the flash unit has failed, looking for a replacement, but before I do I need instructions on the process. I thought there were posts about that, but can't find them. Can anyone help?
  5. SS board diagnosis

    R. Backus 5100 South 62nd Street Rogers, AR 72758 and thanks again!
  6. SS board diagnosis

    Worth a try I suppose. Thanks. Got my addy?
  7. SS board diagnosis

    No luck. Time to go to Plan B,
  8. SS board diagnosis

    K. Hack is sound I tested earlier. Will get to the opto dealie and report back as time allows.
  9. SS board diagnosis

    Not good. 9v showed 8.8 volts to the board after switch turned on; reflow actually got the pir to sense motion on the walk test. Regulator showed a constant 5.07 volts, but no cam function after the board went live. Guess this one may be a goner.
  10. SS board diagnosis

    No detection on walk test. Board has exterior switch which does turn the board on. Will do on reflow.
  11. Original Simple Sniper with p41. Another of those little 'surprises'. Worked well for several years. New 9v, hack tested and working, board goes through walk test but does not detect motion, does blink to indicate walk test completed, after that....nothing. 9v is not on the board, but the nylon washer is still in place, Be hard to add a new board in the room in the case, and I have zero desire to spend any $$ on a build which should function as is. Thoughts? PIR?
  12. Near disaster with w230 build

    Don't think so Woody. No melted wires. I got it cleaned up and put it back in the field this weekend.
  13. Man, don't know what happened here. Chip in if you have thoughts. One of my nicer builds, built with dgrad's advice and council, is a Sony w230 build with as much as 6 AA's for EP, using a lcd board. Always performed extremely well. I get it ready to go out with a freshly charged BG1 in the cam and all six EP's (two separate three bat holders) and take it to camp, probably set in the cam case for about a week. I open it up to turn on the board and there is slimy gunk all over the back of the case. At least two of the bats had leaked, maybe three. The BG1 was dead, the three AA's in one holder (the leaky ones) were dead, and the other three down to .09 volts. I haven't a clue. Only guess I have is that maybe one of the AA's was bad (they were new, and no I did not check them) and that the BG1 tried to back charge and that the others got over charged and blew and the other three kept charging the BG1 and it kept trying to charge the bad bats, and so on. Any other thoughts?
