Then I understand you disappointment, it may be a #3 if you are lucky. Need more info, try with a card in it and try also posting on the 808 Mega thread.

Good luck!

And why, would you think, would Tom Frank spend a lot of time and effort in distilling the information in this thread, and putting it in posts #1,#2,
3,#4 & #5, keeping it uptodate. Could it be possible that he understands that fact, and pre-distils the information for people who take the time to read the title of the thread ?? Nah, no one is that stupid surely !
Have a happy time hoping people will stand to attention and salute.

And if you had read the first three posts as this thread's title says, you would find the FAQs do just that in post #3. You'd also find in posts #1 and #2, that you do NOT have a #11HD camera and need not read any further!

No need, I was posting similar reply myself. He blamed everything and everyone else for his own oversights. Sheesh!

wah....wah...wah....

Bottom line is the ones I have do work, but not like what was dispelled here. With German instructions and no SPECIFIC information to be found anywhere and being continually told this was the place to find any and all info on all 808 cameras caused some frustration and hence my post. Sorry if I stepped on any genius's toes but for my application no information was found in the first 5 posts or the FAQ's. And so far out of all you know it all's only one actually had something constructive to say that helped instead of climbing on your high horses.
And if you read what was said, I did not imply or impune the validity of the information that was given here, merely stated I wish there was more information available of a basic nature versus all the pseudo engineering and video/photo hacking. So you can brush your ruffled feathers and go back about you business. I shall find what I need elsewhere...

My thanks to you Sir. It would appear they are #3's. The Chuck Lohr web site had the info I was looking for and confirmed it as well as identifing the charging problem one has. Replaced the A8 S4 diode and all is well... my thanks again.

We did read what you said in your initial post, and it did NOTHING but belittle the information and contributors to a thread that had absolutely NOTHING to do with your camera. You would have figured that out in the very first post had you bothered to actually read it. When you plop in and start spewing BS about the content and how it doesn't help you, did you expect a warm welcome? Sheesh! Good riddance!

I did read not only the first 5 posts but the first hundred pages. Nothing related specifically to #3, none of the instructions worked, there is no red led, the camera powers up in photo mode NOT video. By chance I found Chucks web site...neat, concise and to the point. Immediately I was able to ascertain I had
#3's, got info on the YELLOW led and instructions on how to operate as well as how to fix the charging problem, replaced diode and it works. And no I did not ask for nor did I expect a warm welcome. And I did thank the only one to help and understood my frustration.
