    Are you sure it has a sonde?

      depending on the age of the camera, the early models did not come with a sonde, but that's been a good 10 years back or so.

      there are 2 models of sondes for the mini. the original black pill style was always live if i remember correctly and the newer clear capsule is only live when you energize the sonde.

      the sonde is located approx 4'' behind the camera in the spring.

      if you see fuzzy lines in your video monitor, then the sonde is powered on.

      if you need a replacement, i have a brand new sonde for the mini on the shelf

        You can see if you have a transmitter by bending the spring a little bit and looking behind the head.

        The new ones are maybe 1/4" long with and antenna at both ends and a wire should be wrapped around both antennas.

        The older transmitters where larger and did not have the exposed antennas.

        Rick is right about being able to check if your transmitter.
        Try and turn it on, if your monitor gets lines running thru it, the transmitter is energized.
