Thanks, sorry for your troubles on that one.

The SSII is coming together good right now. If everything keeps going on schedule, they'll be ready before the end of this month. :cheers

The joint really isn't solid, the solder didn't flow to both pieces. I found it by reflowing the solder on one end of the cap, and when I did, it came loose from the board, so I know the other end wasn't really soldered to the board, even though it looked like it was.

It will do this in both feeder and trail settings, just one will be continous while the other every minute. In walk test, the led will blink even though no motion. I did change the 9 volt. I do have washers under the screws. The regulator is at a constant 5 volts.

thanks for any suggestions.
Im having the same issues with a SSII hooked to a canon t5. Gets stuck on the walktest forever then just constantly triggers on both trail and feeder mode. Any ideas? Tried a new battery and it still didn't do the trick....

Hs it been exposed to moisture? Sometimes reflowing the solder joints will fix it if that's the case.
