I figured it out:

Here goes: There are 4 wires inside the Aqua Vu cable that runs to the underwater part of the cam.

Red = Hot or 12 volt power from battery postive (red) terminal

Black = Ground - ground to battery negative terminal

White= Video input (or center of video coax)

Green= Infrared lighting control, if you ground the green wire against the black/ground, you will see

that it switches ON the infrared or "Christmas" lights. Simply put a switch on the green wire after you ground it, so you can switch your IR's on and off.

How to release the backlight ribbon cable on nikon L810 when replacing the LCD

Just try to view some videos on ifixit dot com. Sorry, but this way I don't need to enter a stupid code when posting this elution.
On ifixit, are lots of videos and manuals about the repair of modern electronics. There must be a flat cable and connection method that looks like the one you have in the camera. I don't think your camera is already online there, but perhaps another Coolpix. Als look to modern phones, because technical stuff looks the same.

How to recover the photos I accidentally deleted from my digital camera?

Chances of recovery can be high as long as you act as soon as possible and stop using the digital camera to take more photos or videos, also keep the camera memory card in good shape (no physical damage).

Then you can rely on a digital camera data recovery software to get the job done and retrieve your photos. Here shows a list of good ones working under Windows or Mac:

How to perform camera photo recovery? Well, you'll need to connect the camera (mass memory card) to your computer. Then install the program to start scan & recover your files.

I have an old Canon TV zoom lense J10X10REA(DC) 10-100mm 1:2.3 This motorised lens is controlled by a 4 pin plug with 4 wires (red, black, white, green) leading into the internal motor control circuit...

You can test the motor connections using two c batteries in series (3v). Simply connect any two pins with the + and - ends of the batteries. Watch the pins position, which motor and direction of the motor operation. Make a chart of the polarity and the pins used. Go ahead and use it. most of these motors use less than 4 volts to move.

Nikonos v with Nikon 15mm f/2.8N UW-Nikkor IC... > for sale

Good lord! That's a NICE underwater system you've got. What type of help are you asking for? Just from your equipment list, if everything is in good condition, you've got at least 1500.00 worth of stuff! A new 15mm sells for $2,240, the camera, new, $750.00, eiklite flash system is up there, the extra close up gear ain't cheap either! And a pelican case--well, if yer gonna go snorkeling or scuba, you're all set! The 28mm can be used for land lubbing or underwater. To properly prepare the camera, the most important thing is to check the condition of the o-ring around the film door. If any doubt, replace it!! The same applies with any other o-ring seal. *Properly* greased, an O-ring in good condition simply looks wet. Use a good quality, pure, silicone grease all over the ring and don't blob it on--It can be purchased just about anywhere. Check the o-rings on all the other equipment--same rule applies. Salt water damage is u-g-l-y. Before opening up the camera after being in salt water, rinse all equipment in fresh water and dry completely. Don't detach any cords or lenses until all are rinsed and dry! (When cameras and salt water come together improperly, think horror movie acid bath results--and you won't be far off) I used 36-picture rolls of film so I wouldn't have to open the cam as much. Heh, in the excitement of photoing fish, yer gonna burn some film.Hope I assisted you!---Rick

I have Bonica underwater video camera and its great but have damaged the screw threads on the front where the wide angle lens screws on. Where can I but replacement ring?

Any way to get a threader and rethread them to take a larger screw ? You can buy them at a decent hardware store. If it's broken already, a $4 item is worth a try.

This lens is intended for a Nikon underwater camera which are branded as Nikonos cameras. These cameras are underwater 35mm cameras and this lens is and extreme wide angle lens to capture underwater scenic’s. This lens is rather expensive and of very high quality. I hope this helps!
