Custom TV-B-Gone (pics)

Here is my design. I added two additional transistors for a total of six leds. The green led comes on when the red power switch is flipped and the red led is for the status.

I'm using 3 AAA's. I planned on using 3 AA's but it didn't fit with the case I wanted to use.

Hope you enjoy!

excellent work :D
did you use the kit components and add extra led's ect: with your own board ?
or did you build it from scratch

impressive

Very impressive build!

I should have switched to AAA as well, it would have fit much better.

Just got another kit and waiting for my tri-wing screwdriver to arrive.

Next case? Game Boy Color. AA Battery compartment already on case, and I plan on hacking a game cartridge so the IRs shine out the top. Should be very nice when done. Will use the existing power switch to bypass the battery and of course A will "fire" in real life :-)

both, I bought a kit and built it. After seeing just how simple it was, I decided to build my own. I bought the parts from mouser. I ordered an extra micro controller when I bought my kit just in case.

I changed the toggle switch with a slide switch and added to more leds. I also ordered some TSAL6100 leds. I'll install them when they arrive.

How did you get the little rings around all the LEDs?

I believe he used led panel mounting clips similar to these

update: I replaced the two middle leds with TSAL6100's for better long range.

I took it to circuit city last night. It worked from all the way across the store. I had no way of measuring the distance but it was pretty far. (at least 150 feet)

Is your pushbutton attached as an input or just directly to power?

It's attached to the reset pin on the IC.
