or

do a search for ShrtCkt's cure, he did teh forum a great service by finding where those traces that disappear behind the Lens Board go and where to solder to and fix the problem

I did a search for it but it didn't come up. I can a jumper from the connection on the front for the #4 pin and then back up and over and it still doesn't work. I think I just threw 40 bucks in the trash.

I did the same mess up. If you open the film door and close it again it might work again. Mine did the same thing, had to go to a tv repair shop to solder a jumper from the pin to a round silver spot below the holes on the front side. It would only snap one time until I opened the filmn door and closed it then it started working.

I think its gone, all it does now its make a clicking noise when I touch the wires together. Plus it always flash low battery now and doesn't turn the camera off. This was the first camera I bought and messed it up. I went out and bought another one and it worked perfect. I have it set out in the woods now and the first roll brought back nothing but dang coons and pics of the woods where it went off by its self.
