Hacking the Rx from the goggles unit of the Trimersion goggles

Recommended Posts

I've been modding and salvaging everything imagineable from these Trimersion goggles. Heres the original Thread:

My latest project is to re use a RX that was hacked out of one of the goggles. This is the board (lower piece) http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=2963350

And heres the schematics: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showpost.php?p=14709944&postcount=891

Using a tested (working) base of a 2.4 tx and CX-161 color camera, I'm actually able to receive a picture but with a few problems.

I'm running 8v to Rx, 2cell lipo, using my goggles with video in for viewing. I've got 3 wires from the Rx, 8v dc to VCC, RCA jack to video, and grd to gnd above video. These 3 wires go to a servo lead wire and than to my RCA/power adapter.

On my first attempts the picture was B&W and distorted, terrible, I than jumpered the BX line to grd (I believe selects the channel) and improved picture but now I'm still only receiving B&W video and the picture scrolls right to left constantly. (or was it left to right) as if the camera itself is moving. If you physically move the camera, the picture is solid (still B&W) but after a sec starts the scrolling again, eventually fading out to no reception.

As always thanks for any and all help.

It sounds to me like you are not using a compatible Airwave video Tx with it. If you are using something else, then wire up the Trimersion Tx board and test it with your hacked video Rx.

Both tx and Rx are from the trimersion set. I've hacked a few sets for friends. Hence having a few parts laying around. I went and hooked all up today again but something must've fried last night. Last night the picture was scrolling and than faded away. Today nothing. Thanks for the help anyway. I'll troubleshoot some more when time becomes available. Thanks again
