Did one today. Discharged it, only a small spark. Kept with the hack and anytime near it would peel the tape back and discharge again. Forgot one time and felt a tingle, charge had built up a bit. Had to go to my buddies to make Xbow cables and came home to finish, just had to put the back cover on as routed wires. YEEOWW, Charge built back up quite a bit in 4 hours.
Now on the the S40. Other S600 can wait a bit.

That means you should've been working on the GoPro camera.  Kinda hard for a camera without a flash to bite you.  lol

Ahh Yup, I was repairing a S600 a few days ago and received a rude reminder to discharge the Cap first [eek][eek][eek]

Had already hacked it...and had problems. Emailed Ralph and he called and basically told me I was dumb...but we already knew that. Told me to try something but probably fried it. Late yesterday afternoon tried it and lo and behold it works!
Now just have to order parts...and hack the other GoPro won on an auction (only bid on it cause thought I ruined this one).

I didn't say that, but be sure to set a GoPro build near the tub and post the video so we can all watch later on.
