Tony, I don't see any corrosion.

My plan is to resolder the power wires later tonight. Hopefully, that is it.

thanks.

try taking the screws out of the board and see if that makes a difference.

thanks for everyone's input.

Gary, thanks for your offer. You are top notched.

I pulled a different camera yesterday to swap out chips, etc. Hopefully, I'll work on this tonight and let you know what I find out. If it doesn't work, I'll send it to gary.

thanks again

Was anything ever figured out on this board?

I swapped out chips with no luck and did other things suggested but no luck. I did notice a bad solder joint on the power wire that was supplied with the board so I redid that. I thought that was it because it started to work properly for a couple of days then went back to continously taking pics. I have not had time to work on it since then. I plan on rewiring the battery directly to the board and bypass the switch. I'll let you know how it turns out.

Well, I took the board out and wired a 9 volt directly to the board and still no luck. It remains in the walk test mode. I shipped it to Gary.

Well, I found the problem. One of the little capacitors on the board had a cold solder joint. :bag Seems to be working good now. It's not much for the troubles that you've had, but I threw in a HPWA with the board to help get you started on your next one. ;)
