Not only am I a rookie first timer at this stuff but I also cheated in that I bought my camera pre wired as well as my timer board, only had to plug in Brian's chip, and connect the board to the camera. I tested the camera by touching the wires and both the shutter and flash worked fine. However once connected to timer board and motion senser is tripped, the  shutter works, but flash does not, even if it is in ( forced flash mode ) only red eye light comes on. Camera is the Owl PF , first question is does it need film in the camera in order for flash to work? if not, any suggestions on what might be wrong.

you have the wires crossed to the camera.   Verify which wire is common by shorting what you think is common to the what you think is refresh.  you should get the steady red eye light from the flash.  Then add the shutter and you should get the pic taken.     Then hook the wires up to the board.
