My latest AF-8 (round switch owl) seems to have a slight problem.I used cam in field for about 4 days and it worked fine but now when I try to use camera it takes a pic as soon as I turn it on.

  I took cam apart,and unsoldered everything,when I put camera back in housing to test The flash light comes on like the shutter button is pressed half-way.

  If I jump pins 1&2 then try camera with or without any wires(just pins 1&2 jumped) it takes a pic and camera stays triggered till I turn it off.

 Any ideas why? I have checked for pieces of solder and can find nothing.
