    I recently out a window into a cheap VCR. Ill put up pics if ya want.:p But now I want to integrate a light that I had left over. Its just a CCD. Now im looking where I could sodier the yellow and black wires on the light to the inside of the vcr. Here are some pictures of the VCR. The third is like a PSU in the vcr you can see it in the first two. Thanks.

    This is something you will need a voltmeter for. VCRs can have odd voltages in them. I can't honestly say what to hook to.

    A SMPSU like that is going to have major trouble powering a CCFL. You could maybe light up the VCR with a few LED's but thats about as much as you can do. These things are designed as cheap as possible, so the PSU will be rated for only the maximum current draw of the VCR.

    Why don't you attach a small transformer inside the VCR case to power your CCFL?
