Moultrie 4.0 not flashing

5 posts in this topic

I have my trail camera in the woods and I am getting ALOT of black pictures between 9pm and 4 am. I will assume they are bucks. With that being said, it seems the camera is not flashing. I brought it in the house and went to a dark room, used the manual mode and it flashed fine.

Any thoughts??

Thx,

Mike

A friend of mine had an issue like this, but with another brand. All pictures at dark never showed up...Even at a very close distance, when they tested it out in their own house. He called their customer service explaining the problem...They told em' to ship the unit to them and they wanted to check it out for themselves. Ended up getting a new camera out of the deal. Was out a trail camera for a week & ½.

From my understanding...The timing of the flash and when it is supposed to take pictures was off. Being the timing of this was so far off, it was taking pictures like it never had a flash.

I don't know a whole lot about cameras so, maybe some of the people in the photography forum would know the nuts and bolts how this happens and what you can do to fix it...If possible.

With a trail camera, I can't imagine anything more frustrating, knowing it's most likely capturing night time bucks and you cant see them.

Good Luck

    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
