      Prayers for a longtime Member   11/05/2017

      The Church mass shooting that happened today, was Peggy Wardens Church. She was one of the people killed today and her grandson was shot in the arm and is in surgery. Lets keep her in our thoughts and prayers. I made a topic in the "Cabin" I will keep everyone updated as I get information.

SS board diagnosis

16 posts in this topic

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?

So it detects motion in walktest?

 

Does the board have a switch on it?

Might try reflowing the solder points on the board and see what that does.

No detection on walk test. Board has exterior switch which does turn the board on. Will do on reflow.

Have you checked the voltage regulator? I recently had one go bad for no determined reason, replaced it and the board works as it should.

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.

See if the camera works when the board is off by jumping across the camera connections on the board, just to make sure there isn't an issue there.  Since it is detecting motion now, it could be that the optocoupler is bad.  try reflowing the solder on it again (little 8 pin white chip).

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