Step 1: Circuit

You have to prepare these parts.
General-purpose diodes 1N4007 x10
1000pF Ceramic capacitors x10
Resistors 15kΩ x1 100Ω x1
Transistor 2SD2470
Transformer TS7A

Step 2: Let's Begin!

Prepare cheep film camera to pick up some parts.

Step 3:

Take the camera apart and pick this circuit board.
Don't touch red circle! Capacitor contains high voltage!

Step 4:

Then, pick up these two parts. Transformer and transistor. You can also use to make generator.

Step 5:

And connect these parts. That's it. And if you notice my English mistakes, please contact with me.
Thank you.
