4LED ProdMod Camera Light-new wiring and screw location

relocate red wire and drill 4 LED holesI recently made one of the ProdMod LED camera lights for a friend. He had a camera with a different location for the mounting screw than I did. So I had to rearrange some of the wiring to get it to work. In this case the mount screw is to the left when viewed from behind the camera. And this time we are not routing the red wire under the battery, and we position the LEDs a different way.

Here are a few photos to show you what I did.

Click on the photo and it should open up on your screen. Then hit your right arrow to advance to the next slide.
There should be some comments under each photo describing what I am doing. Or you can just read it off the post.

Then I drilled a pilot hole for the screw. I think I could have moved everything over to the left a bit more.
Because later we have to trim off both those plastic ribs to the right of the screw hole.

Drill small hole for the screw to the right of the LED holes

finish the 1/4″ hole

cut away the plastic ribs near the hole

cut away the battery wall as well

insert screw to test fit

route the red wire through these slots

Solder 4LED group together so the negative leads are on the bottom and they are pointing away from the screw head.
Solder the black wire to the leads and insert the LED group into their holes as shown below.

For more information on soldering the LEDs you can refer to the original 3LED post.

Trim the red wire and solder it to the resistor.

Connect the resistor as shown

Solder the resistor to the positive leads of the LEDs

Connect resistor to the positive leads of the LED group

Insulate the resistor with electrical tape. Be sure the black wire is above the screw head.

Insulate the exposed parts of the resistor with electrical tape

When giving a hand crafted product to someone else I try to cover all exposed circuits with hot glue.
