moonlit Posted April 15, 2006 Share Posted April 15, 2006 This one's not quite so half-assed as the one I posted a moment ago - it's quite different, that's why it's got it's own thread... I have sitting in front of me now: (yeah I know, I recycled that line...) 1 x 8v Wireless camera, 1 x 9-12v Receiver w/Composite Out for aforementioned camera. (The receiver is no longer in it's case - I took it out to mod it into my rig but then I decided to remove it again... it's now a bunch of circuits on my desk). Now, the thing is, the camera's power socket came loose because it was cheap and tacky... I cut the socket off of the little power cable and what do I see? Erm... 3 wires... A red one, a white one and a yellow one... The problem is that I don't know how this works... I'm used to having a + and a - and maybe some data wires in there somewhere - but there's nowhere for data to go, 'cos it's wireless! The data goes out of the antenna... now, I know transmitters have odd circuits because you can't just have one end of a circuit going nowhere, but I can't figure out which wire is which... I'm rather hoping I haven't killed the poor little thing by reversing the polarity of the power (for too long)... It's a bit difficult to use trial and error because whilst trying to test which wires go where, I have to also make sure that the receiver is tuned... it has a manual tuning dial just to make things difficult! If anyone has any ideas, do yell, and when I get it figured out I will decide what to mod it into... it's gotta go somewhere... *thinks*...
