Re: Moultrie M80 Poblems
FredBear: When you set your camera up, you may have had a weak or faulty battery. If any battery gets down to 1.0 to 1.2 volt the camera may not function properly or not at all. New batteries fresh out of the package may contain a faulty one. This is why I highly recommend using a digital meter.
Another thing to watch for is the slide (lock-unlock) switch on the SD card. I had one that would slide too easily (no resistance). Installing it in either my camera or computer, it would slide into the lock function. In this position in the camera it will not take pictures.
If you have your camera at home, just try some tests with it. Make sure the camera switch is right in the centre of the on positon. Try a different SD card, or different brand. I am using Adapta, Verbatim, SanDisk and Lexar cards. Good luck.
