Common Hunting Camera Failures and Solutions

I. Infrared triggered camera shooting problems

Some common infrared triggered cameras may encounter the following problems during use:

The camera is unable to accurately sense inanimate objects: This may be due to incorrect setting of the PIR sensitivity parameter. In warm conditions, the sensor sensitivity should be set to “High”, while in cold conditions, it should be set to “Low”.
Failure to sense the target when taking a photo: The photo may not have been taken successfully because the camera was pointed at an object with too short a sensing time. It is recommended to point the camera at a stationary object.
Problems taking pictures in certain environments: In some cases, such as when taking pictures of the ground, the camera’s sensing may be affected due to reflections from the ground. In this case, it is recommended to point the camera at another object.
Camera shake causes shooting errors: During shooting, camera shake may cause shooting to fail. Therefore, it is necessary to fix the camera to ensure its stability.
Night Shooting Problems: When shooting at night, the sensor may not be able to accurately sense the target because the sensing distance is too far. In this case, you can shorten the sensing distance by adjusting the sensitivity of the sensor.
Problems with shooting at sunrise or sunset: The camera may be triggered by mistake at this time, and the camera needs to be reoriented to avoid this problem.
Problems with fast moving objects: If an object is moving too fast, the camera may not be triggered successfully before the object leaves the shooting range.
II. IR Trigger Camera Storage Problems

Common problems with IR-triggered camera storage include:

Memory card is full: When the SD card is full, the camera will not be able to continue to store photos. In this case, you need to export the photos in the SD card and delete some unnecessary files, or choose a larger capacity SD card.
Low battery: If the battery is low, the camera will not be able to continue shooting. In this case, you need to charge or replace the battery.
Camera off or preview mode: If the camera is off or in preview mode, you will not be able to take pictures. You need to switch on the camera and switch to photo mode.
GPRS on: When using the GPRS function, the camera’s photo sending speed will be limited. It is recommended to switch off the GPRS function if fast continuous shooting is required.
Memory card format is incorrect: You need to format the SD card before use, otherwise it may not be able to store photos properly.
III. MMS sending problems

MMS sending problems may include:

Insufficient SIM card cost: If the balance of the SIM card is insufficient, you will not be able to send MMS. You need to top up the SIM card to continue sending.
Receiving mobile phone fault: If the MMS function of the receiving mobile phone is faulty, you will not be able to receive MMS. You need to check the mobile phone and fix the fault.
Insufficient signal coverage: If the signal coverage in your location is insufficient, you may not be able to send or receive MMS. Need to move to a location with better signal.
Incorrect GPRS settings: If the camera’s GPRS settings are incorrect, you may not be able to send MMS properly. Need to check and modify the camera’s GPRS settings.
iv. IR-triggered camera startup problems

IR triggered camera startup problems may include:

Switch not turned on: If the switch is off, the camera cannot be started. The switch needs to be turned on for normal use.
Battery is low: If the battery is low, the imager will not start. The battery needs to be charged or replaced.
SD card malfunction: If the SD card malfunctions, normal startup and use of the camera may be affected. The SD card needs to be replaced.
