From the Forums: TV B Gone Vs Digital Camera #adafruit #TVBGone

Pasted Image 1 12 14 10 24 PM 2

Carl Attrill shared his TV-B-Gone digital camera mod on the Adafruit Forums!

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. 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.

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

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