How can I shoot without the lenses?

I want to modify the camera to be able to shoot videos using the sensor of the digital with CHDK. Additionally, I'm trying to use an 8mm lenses from a vintage Kodak 8mm Reel camera and install the sensor in that camera.

I got pretty far. My blocker is that the camera auto-shuts down because I removed the lenses.  CHDK is already installed on the SD and the camera recognizes CHDK; the [alt] shows up and that script shows up too. I'm thinking that the solution to this problem would be to modify the settings of the CHDK on the SD on the desktop to tell it to ignore the auto-shut down and ignore the fact there is no lens, sound, flash, exposure, etc.

Can anyone help with feedback? I'll buy you a beer over paypal if you help me figure this out!

I am one of the people you are irritating by posting this five times.
If you search the forum you may be able to find the answers to this question that has been asked before.

Basically, you have to keep the entire lens assembly and sensors intact and position outside the camera.

The sensor will be extremely sensitive to infra-red.

It is not known how to override the feedback sensors.

@ microfunguy,

Don't be upset that I'm on a quest. I searched the forum and couldn't find anything; perhaps you can suggest better keywords?

I apologize for making multiple posts; I won't do that again.

I'm reading up on your discussion in the other post that has more activity. There's hope yet for me.
