The problem: With fresh batteries and a reformatted SD card, the display continues to flash "FULL".

I called WGI's 800 customer service. Manual no longer available for this camera. The only "help" they offered was to use a Sandisk brand SD card. mad

It seems like I have every other brand card except Sandisk. I tried several different SD cards that work fine in SEVERAL other brand cameras, e.g., Primos, Stealth, etc. None work.

Anyone have a manual for this old camera or have a suggestion? Thanks.

Have you tried a factory reset on the camera? Squeaky wheel gets the grease. Keep after those folks at Wild Game Innovations. Get on their social media account and raise a little cane.

lol! I hear that. I just picked up a couple for practically nothing...and that appears to be what they're worth. I was looking at deer blinds in Jacksboro and they had a stack of them. I figured for $15 it was worth a shot. NOT

Try a smaller gig sd card. Older cameras might not be able to recognize larger gig cards. I had the same thing happen to me. Camera said it was 100% with an empty card. Card was to big for the camera to recognize. I put a smaller card in and it worked fine.

I have a suggestion......never buy anything that has "Wildgame" on it. I have bought and paid for experience to back up that statement.

I had a Wildgame camera once. I shot a full 30 round magazine of 5.56 into that piece of junk.


I took the road less traveled

They are great!.... to use as dummy cameras in open view with a good camera hidden to take pics of wildlife and any camera thiefs....

About 2 years ago I made a decision to never buy another Wild Game product again.

This may sound silly but did you re-format the sd card in the camera. I had a camera that I sometimes would re-format through my laptop and would get some gobidy goop when trying to view. I started re-formatting them in the camera and never since had a issue.

BHolt- On that model there’s no option to format the sad card in the game camera. All my Stealth cams do have that option and I do use it in those.

This is interesting, I really like my wildgame innovations cameras for the money. For an 16-18mp camera that is $60-$70 they are heard to beat.
I will never purchase a stealth cam though, those things S.U.C.K. Not user friendly and take absolutely terrible night time pics, and I have one now that takes pics all the time. Tree is way too big to sway, no grass in front, and it takes loads of empty pics.
