used a new card and have re-inserted it several times to make sure it "clicked" or locked
itself in properly.
went through the entire menu set up again and it appears to be working but still no flash;
will set it out tonight and see what happens.
Will call the manufacturer today and see if I can get an answer or clarification. (Actually, I guess
it is the distributor - stealth cam, ltd - as like most other electronics, it is made in China!)
Thanks for all the help.
If yours is like mine you won't see a flash because it's a red glow. Make sure when you finished in the set ups and you see "del" flashing you push the menu button and lock it up. Wait 30 secs or so and you'll see the green light flash several times and then stop. Walk by the cam and see if the number display changes accordingly.
Also, I would precheck it before deploying it. Set it to the quickest settings so your not waiting forever to check the results. Check both sides of the function meaning cam and video tests. See if this helps and always have some other SD cards available to change out to see if thats an issue. I run mine on 12v and seems to function flawlessly so far this season anyway. Oh yeah, make sure the cams off when you pull the card out.
Keep us posted on the events as they happen ok?
Thanks in advance.
