unplug the camera and turn it off or take it out for now. Make sure both cables are seated down all the way (tight). Make sure the power switch is off.
Set all the switches "up" and then turn on the power switch to the board. Lets the board and lights run there corse. YOU MUST DO THIS EACH TIME YOU RESET THE SWITCHES, I found out the hard way,lol.
Now turn on your camera and give it a try just to make sure it's working on it's own. Make sure the flash is set to "AUTO" and that your time and date are right and so on.
If the flash and camera work right then you should be all set. Turn "off "the power switch. Place the camera in the box and plug it in. Make sure your cables are tight on the board when you put your camera in, it's easy to nock them loose.
Now turn on the camera and then turn on the power switch. The red light should come on and stay lit for about a minute. When it goes out run your hand in front of the sensor real slow and see if it takes a pic. Hope this helps, Mike

That's the same board I have with my D-360L and it takes great pics. I've had mine about 5 months now and no problems at all. Just make sure your batteries are always good . Also found out that I never had to change the setting on the senser no matter what the temperature is, Just leave it straight up.
Also make sure you check your cables each time you put in the camera. It's easy for them to come loose. Good luck
and let us see some pics now!,lol. Mike

VABEARHUNTER,

Looks like I was a little late in responding here. I was going to tell you that you needed to configure the 2.5mm port's solder jumpers, and it sounds like you did.

Glad you got things working.

go to the website and click on the pic of the new board,then scroll down to the 2.5mm stereo jack,it should be in blue letters and click on it and it should give you a breakdown of what you need to solder for each diffrent board types
