Hi gtepwisc. I just bought a Expert also and the problem was similar. My package was opened and I paid $150 at The Farm. They told me not to worry, anything wrong with it and Cudde would take care me, as it should be warrantied for a year. YEAH RIGHT!!
It done the same as yours, it took forever to go through the startup on the lcd screen even without a card. Then I soon found out why it was a returned item. The card would not go in all the way. I looked up in the card slot and the wires that go inside all those tiny holes in the card were all bent to hell. Some were making contact with other wires. So check that in yours right away. I thought, GREAT! I don't really want to return it back to FF as it really is a nice camera so I called up Cuddeback. They said it is no longer under warranty because they discontinued that model and also because the card reader is damaged, even though I didn't damage it! Then they told me they would exchange it for their Cheapo Capture model for only $100 plus my camera or repair it for $150. I told them neither of those options are acceptable as this camera should be under warranty. If that is how you treat your customers I will never buy another Cuddeback and let others know.
Then I thought of a good TV Repairman in my area who is good at fixing many electronic products. He looked at it and said it doesn't look promising but would give it his best. He not only straightened out all those prongs so that card goes in nice and smooth. He soldered a couple wires to the positive and negative way inside the camera so I can hook it up to my 6 volt tractor battery and not have to deal with D-Cell batteries in that terrible setup they have for that model. That is real sweet. My tractor battery will last a year before I have to recharge it. Anyhow, that took care of the problem of the slow forever startup and the card has went in perfectly over 20 times so far. Granted, I take my time putting it in and line it up gently before I push it in. That repairman only charged me $40 for all his work. That shows there are still some good, honest people out there. The camera takes some of the nicest colorful pictures I have ever seen and the trigger time is just unreal. Right now I wouldn't trade that camera for any newer camera out there but I had to go through hell. I hope I helped you and gave you some ideas to try. Also, I use a rubber bungee ******** the tree and just put old broken pieces of tree branches behind the top and bottom of the camera to act as shims so it don't wobble all over and stays in place. Good Luck

Turn off the camera.
Remove the battery pack.
Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.
Allow the camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.
Reinsert the battery pack.
Turn on the camera.
The blurry image capturing can also adjusted by changing the ISO Settings or the Scene Selection modes.

Flash forced off. it has 2 folders behind the camera
Camera takes up to 30 pictures (2 per second up to 15 seconds) while the Shutter button is held. When the shutter button is released, only the last 8 pictures are saved. (Capture an event when the precise timing is uncertain e.g., a child blowing out birthday candles.)
