Xenon strobe for cell phone
« on: December 15, 2015, 02:31:41 am »
This is a xenon strobe for a Nokia N8 cellphone.  Does anyone have any idea how to get it to do anything outside of a phone?

You should be able to at least do a flash unit.  Don't know if you would be able to get it to run fast enough for a strobe, but you never know.

See if you can work out something from the schematic for the phone:

The xenon flash connector is at the top right on page 2.

Thanks!  That turned out to be a lot more helpful than I would have thought from a "service schematic"!
(Pin 1 is on the side with the big cap; I got the LED to light!)
