Not a tutorial as such but these pictures have been of help to lots of folk who have LX modded their own Toucams.
Took the pictures during various mods which I've done a lot of over the years.

The mod to this latest camera is very easy if you can use a soldering iron and lots of folk have been successful at doing
it even without an electronics back ground.
I wouldn't suggest doing a mod to the older Toucams as that really sorts the men from the boys.
It's do able but much more difficult with finer soldering problems.

Anyhoo, whether you fancy having a go at a spare camera or just want to see what's involved, have a look through the pictures.

This image is the complete mod showing what goes were and below is a link to various other mod pictures..

Re your web cam mods shown on your post and the details on your photo bucket site.

The wiring diagram seems to differ from your photo. In the cct diagram pins 1 and 14 are used as signal paths. in the photo 1 and 14 are joined and connected to +5v.
Is this difference important or is it just using a different gate on the chip?

Thanks Chris

I modded my old 840k toucam and it was a fiddley little sod, at one point you have to get the soldering iron between the ccd chip and the control chip with a 1mm tipped soldering iron.

Not for the faint hearted.

Apologies for missing this Chris...
Yes, different gates...
Rest assured the wiring picture is correct :)

Hi there

I'm new on the site so I'd like to say a big hi to all reading this.


I had my 900nc 1.5 mod done by a great electronics engineer from london.
He fitted a female usb socket on the side of mine with a switch for lx and included a usb lead to plug into it so I had two usb's on it.
The grand cos of £50 inc post.
I have never seen a mod done this way.
He assured me it was done with micro circuits or something
.
It was a lovely clean job and works well.
