As they all said a dmm is a definitely needed if you are going to continue building.

Everything I am telling you to can be checked with a dmm and you wouldn't have to do all of this trial and error.

Or it isn't soldered or wired correctly that is why you need to remove it from the pill

Contact boards don't burn out. Like I said, there is likely something wrong with the way its soldered. If you take some detailed close up pictures of it we might be able to tell. First just take a couple of the bottom as it is without taking it out of the pill.

You have your black w ire still exposed where you joined them right? Then touch the exposed part to the pill it should light up.

That could narrow down the negative contact as an issue or could show that either the negative or positive or both aren't connected right.

Its also possible that one of the lead wires was pinched because they are so long.

Basically, a DMM would tell you in about 2 seconds.... XD

It's best to upload them to photobucket or something then copy the url address, click on the mountain icon and paste the address there other than that, click on the paperclip, but the pictures must be resized to fit on here

It looks like the outer ring isn't soldered properly to the pill to me, can the blank be taken out without being de soldered ?

attach both red wires together, the black wire from the driver touch it against the thread of the host and switch it on

Not broken, just a bad contact maybe ?? Desolder the blank from the pill and de solder the wires from the pill and solder them again.

Its still possible that the leads are not soldered correctly to the contact board. Either that or a wire is damaged, or there isn't a very good negative contact to the pill.

If you want to solve this the easiest way go out and grab a cheap DMM from a local electronics store.
