Here is a review from trailcameras.net:
I have been having problems with the flash going out in 18 months. I have 4 cameras with the solar panel hook up, this camera will not switch from battery to solar or visa versa. Otherwise a good camera for the money. I average around 300 night shots in 2 weeks. It would be nice if they could just sell you the flash to get it going. Customer Service says it's to expensive you have to buy a new one. I took 2 of the broken ones and got one working again. Had a bad capacitor on 1 bad flash on the other. Have 2 I-40 no problems.

I'm thinking you have a bad capacitor, or possibly a bad high voltage transformer (small component). If it's under warranty, get it exchanged. Contact Moultrie to find about about repair costs.
I couldn't find a support site for them, so consult your literature that came with it.
Good luck, hope this helps, and thanks for using FixYa.

Err99 when taking pics in sun. Taking in side with flash fine, pics outside at night are fine?


Error code 99 indicates detection of a system malfunction. Try switching on the camera and while it is still switched on remove the battery. Leave it for about 30 secs then re-insert the battery once powered up switch the camera off wait 30 secs then switch it on again. This action sometimes will remedy this problem but failing that it may need a visit to the repair shop.

All nite time pics are blacked out what can I do to fix it.


If the day time pictures are good then the setttings for the night shots must be selected according to the light intensity. Please check on the menu for night settings if you are intenting a low light shoot. Also make sure that the flash is active, in most of the present day samml cameras, the flash THROW is low and so the SUBJECT must not be too far as the picture will appear dark. So when using flash in a dark scene have the subject within 5-7 feet as the small flash will not be able to capture the openess. Also you can use a SLAVE flash to counter this and give a better prospective.

Hi. Turn on the camera and go into the menu and find the reset function. Reset it. That may solve your problem. If it does not, you could go for a repair or a replacement. Some shops will give you a free estimate. Joe

On record picture smeared like massively over exposed


Make sure the ISO is set on the correct exposure for daylight.. try say 100 or 200 if its set for flash at say 60 nor 30 and you try to use it in brighter or daylight it will overexpose.

I get a warning which says *Battery Exhausted*. I've replaced them but still get the warning.. Any idea whats wrong?


earlier i posted solution in similary problem. maybe help you this.

solution is good batteries, Ni-Mh or Lithium, rechargeable only not alkaline. but...problem is how long you watch pictures on lcd display or how much is flash in use. if always by shooting pics used flash that means that you can with best batteries 30, 20 or less pics shooted. and of course, if you connect camera with pc, how long is cam on? just transfer pics on pc and turn the camera off. the best solution is use the card reader for pics transfering.
if is flash off, it's possible to shot 120-150 pics with Ni-Mh. with lithium i don't know, maybe 500 pics. don't use camera lcd for analysing pics it's just there for short preview.
with alkaline batt., very low quality, i shot 30 pics without flash.

i shot also very good pics at night without flash. nikon coolpix L15 can do that but you must have more praxis. alkaline batteries shooting!
after 3 pictures on display is message: warning! the battery is exhausted. what you can do? turn the camera off. wait about 10 minutes. turn the camera on, you can shot 3 or 5 pictures and than turn your camera off again.
you can repeat this few times and you be lucky if you 30 pics captured:)
REMEMBER: all this goes without camera flash!!!
flash and every zooming use more battery power! and that was all magic:).
