Am modifying the PF and wanted to test before closure. Display flashes a 1 and full bat. No movement, no flash with wires or button after I removed wires. No bridged solder joints. Do I need film in camera for it to flash?  Thanks.

Davered1 may be right, also open the Battery Door, count to 10, then close it and see if the shutgter button flashes the camera.

Sounds like it locked up,  Pin 4 was probably not connected to pins 5 & 6 properly when you tested it, if you don't see any solder streamers

I removed my wires in the cam and verified that there is no solder splash. Put camera back together, left batteries out for 4 hours and it still doesn't work. I wish I would have tested camera before I took it apart.:cry-blue::cry-blue:

I once had some solder form the factory fall down in the front face of cam and short it out when I put it back together.
