TV B Gone Vs Digital Camera

Hi everyone, this is my first post here,

I was looking at the work made by other contributors last week and it inspired me to get a Kit and try it myself.

I would like to share my case that I completed for the TV B Gone.

Image

the LEDs conveniently lay where the sd card slot was and the on/off switch is the same size as the Tripod slot, the indicator light is used by the 'working' green LED The Shutter button activates the TV B Gone..

Image

The Screen, Lens and the flash were glued back in, the 2xAAA battery chamber is now used by the TVBG.

Image

As the case would not fold nicely over to close I cut a slit for the on off switch, this then gave me the idea to cut a long slot across for the LEDs, as the unit automatically starts the first cycle on switching on, the shutter only re-starts, you can operate TVBG without removing the camera from it's case.

Image
I cut the PCB so I could retain the battery and the shutter switch, but allow me room to include the TVBG.

Image

Here is the Wiring, I bent the green LED flat so it would shine through the flash ready lens in the front of the camera, I tacked the wires from the tac-switch the the shutter button.

I have posted these pictures from post image as the originals from myblog are too bog for here, but please feel free to visit and view them. :)
