I just tried to convert a Yeti Type 2 board that was set up for a 3-wire hack (Sony P32) to use a camera with a four wire hack (Nikon L11). The camera hack is fine and works with no problems. According to the Yeti manual all it should take to make the change is to change a jumper from jumping BC to jumping AB. Did that and it looks fine -- but when the shutter and shutter common wires are connected to the board (and the board isn't powered on) in the labeled places the camera turns on and can't be turned off manually. Any ideas?

Had the board worked with a P32 (to make sure it was a good board...not knowing if you were just transffering one of yours) and if not is there a solder jump maybe under the green block (assuming it's not hardwired)? Is the Yeti board chip interchangable between the P32 and L11 (same programming)?

Got it fixed! [thumb] Re-did the AB jumper and now it's fine. Don't know if it was a cold solder joint or if there was such a thick coating on the A spot that the solder never made contact, but re-soldering the jumper did the trick.
