be very carefull around those caps/boards - they hold a lot of energy for a long time!!
Yeah, it's not even trying to charge it. Thanks for the warning, I work on switching power supplies so I take my precautions. The camera also does not want to focus using the autofocus points (not live), I didn't notice this until now since I use it for videos, video uses live autofocus, a different system. I can still focus for photos with live view, just not normal shooting point mode (dont know the name). This could be something I connected wrong, but I'll check it next time I get a chance to open it up. For now it's working for what I need, videos.
