If you take the cover off, the three wires near the shutter button are:
Brown - Refresh
Yellow - Shutter
You will need a setup using a refresh, most people are using the 2 1/2 hr refresh chips. Brian, JoeD and I think Hamiltoe all offer something that will work. If you only want one board, Brian makes one that will do it. Otherwise, I would recommend using the RS -PIR or the MS-20 PIR with the low-power mods.
Hope this helps,

Sound like everybody anwered your questions already. The trick is to use lots of solder.....(kidding). It's VERY easy to modify. You get it apart and you will know what to do. I'm not smoking (again) and have two that are ready for the iron....that's how I ruined the last one.
Ha!! Thanks for the offer...actually my hands are (finally) starting to steady back up. I've fallen off the wagon a couple times...but still mostly not smoking. I need to just tackle these cameras and get it over with.
The last one I did, I just soldered a small 3 pin connector from a CD-rom drive right to the solder point on the camera board. Then I just cut a small hole in the cover for the connector to stick out through. It was the fastest, and nicest looking camera mod I've done to date! Sorry, I don't have a picture, it's in the woods right now.
Ok I posted a question long before I realized you guys were already answering most of them here in the forum . Only thing is where do I get the Board added to the RS PIR, this seems so much easier to use. Again I am a rook at all this and wanna get the details down before I go for it.
I already have a RS PIR and I,m looking at some cameras now. I already have the PIR apart and ready to go just waiting on the camera now. But I also have my eye on a D-370 that is less than an owl so it is worth the risk I,m gonna make one and see how it goes and go from there. Haven't decided yet which one though.
