I just did a hack on a p-41 and while it powers up fine...the turn off on again message comes on. I went over the wiring, even pulled the cable(shutter assembly) out and reinstalled it and even  changed the lens assembly...Even removed the shutter assembly and it still didn't help.(The camera worked fine before I opened it up) Any ideas??

The lens door switch is not tripped...Not sure how you hack your cameras but if you leave the lens motor in and just unplug it your lens door has moved closed just enough to untrip the switch.  I actually remove the lens door motor and the lens doors.  I then solder a bridge wire from one side of the switch to the other...Hope this helps!

Thanks Jim...that helps alot! The  only way I could get the camera to work is to re-install the lens motor and plug it in(that still puzzles me) I  had removed the lens doors but never jumped the switch. I will yank out the motor and jump the switch and hopefully I'll be good to go
