To reset the password:

Turn unit on and wait for password prompt
Depress the and hold the enter button until camera switches into 5-digit password mode _ _ _ _ _.

Trail sentry systems will not indicate 5-digit mode on the screen, but will indicate _ _ _ _ instead of HHHH .

Press enter to confirm 5 digit mode

Enter 5-digit code 66214 and press enter button( trail sentry cameras will accept a 5th Digit after the 4th digit is entered in the _ _ _ _ screen.

Camera will now go into operating mode, and user can now program a new password from the setup mode.

Try to remove any power source on it ...and see if this will get it back to the original settings ...I do not think that this cameras have internal battery to hold the memory ..and if it is a matter of a code or a strange mode setting this will fix it ..
If you do have access on the menu ..just look for factory settings ..or general reset and choose it from the menu ..maybe the error is from a strange setting you made and the mode is not proper chosen for the setting made ..

    I checked the manual and there is no reference on the password or anything like it ..anyway ..check if the card is proper inserted..cause this model will error you if the card is not in place or it is not functional .. ..try to remove it ...and format it into the computer ..cause the password if there is one may be stored on the card ..If nothing of this will work ...It means that it has an internal battery that will have to be removed in order to get rid of the password set ...or you will have to reinstall the firmware ...cause there is no available master password or such ...Another thing that you may try to take a good look around it ..and see if it has a hidden ..reset button ...It may look like a little hole that will fit a pin ..or a ball point pen ..Usually if it has something like that has to be marked as reset near it ...and In this case try to press it for a few sec and see if it is resetting itself.. This is about all you can try ...

When is tasco trail cam model #119256cw actually turned on

I can't see why you'd need to, but it can't hurt. The settings on the camera will be preserved as long as the battery's are left in.

Range on my trail cam is not very far would like to know how to change this

Range on a trail cam is maximum 45 feet, in perfect conditions. 20-25 is more realistic. Are you getting that kind of range?

I just bought,last August, a Tasco Digital Trail Camera - 119223C . Took pictures until Jaunary 2011, my camera display shows Loc and the SD Card flashes. The instruction manual does not reference this setup code. Does anyone know what 'Loc' means? I tried to reformat card, I also so not get a Y/N option for formatting. I bought a new card and changed batteries. no change!

I have a tasco trail camera, and i need to know what driver i need to install so i can upload the pictures from my trail camera to my laptop

Okay, I spent a lot of time refusing to accept that I couldn't get my tasco trail cam to work with my computer. I did figure it out though, to my relief. Tasco's directions are a little vague, but here it is: turn camera on, don't connect it to usb port, yet. After it turns on, push menu button, now connect it to your usb port. Disregard when it asks about installing driver software. If you follow these steps your computer will recognize it as another drive and ask open folder to view files,etc.
