Camera takes pictures continuously

When trying to take still pictures, the camera begins snapping a picture every 5-7 seconds. Regardless of what settings I attempt to change, this continues. Sometimes this even happens when the card is not engaged (i.e. when importing video). Is this a problem with the memory card or the camera itself? Anything I can do to fix it, or does it require pro repairs?

    i think it need to be service your camera now cause some contact of the switch are having a resistance or been shorted...cause that wiring is made of carbon....it have to clean the switch and the terminal contact cause of some carbon build up you will notice this if the terminal and switch are not color silver ..don't attempt to clean that if you are not a technician...is our shop we simply clean it buy a pencil eraser....

I have a moultrie A-5 gen 2 trail camera and the display screen keeps saying snap and won't take pics or video.???

Troubleshoot the issue and see if we can get it working properly:

Check the Camera Mode:
Make sure the camera is not in Handheld mode. If it is, switch it to Auto mode. The camera won't take pictures if the SD card is in Protect mode.

Review Settings:
Confirm that the camera is powered on.
Check if it's set to take photographs when it detects motion or if it's in time-lapse mode.

Perform an IR Filter Reset:
Take your camera into a completely dark room.
Walk or wave in front of the camera to trigger it to take a picture.
Turn on the lights and trigger the camera to take another picture.
Repeat this process 6 to 8 times. This will reset the IR filter, and better photos should be on the way.

Check the Viewing Screen:
Moultrie game cameras have a built-in viewing screen. Ensure that the screen is functioning properly.

If the display screen continues to show "snap" without capturing images or videos, consider contacting Moultrie customer support for further assistance.

I wanna take a picture but i dont know how to make the camara wait 10 sec before it takes the picture

Hi,

Self-timer shooting:

This function lets you take pictures using the self-timer.
Fix the camera securely on a tripod for self-timer shooting. This function is useful for taking
pictures when you want to be included in the photograph.

1 Select [ON], and press Z.
2 Press the shutter button fully to
take the picture.
• Pressing the shutter button halfway
locks the focus and exposure.
• The self-timer lamp lights for
approximately 10 seconds, then starts
blinking. After blinking for approximately
2 seconds, the picture is taken.
• To stop shooting while in n mode,
press the shutter button fully again.
• To cancel the self-timer, press Z.
• The self-timer mode is automatically canceled after one shot.

Note:
• If sequential shooting is attempted in self-timer mode, the camera shoots 5
frames at most regardless of the setting.


Hope my info fixes your problem,
Thanx for using fixya,
cheers.

Red light continually flashes, and won't take picture

Set the camera to anything except no flash. Turn it off. Take out the battery. Wait 5-10 seconds. Put the battery back in. The flash should now work until you turn the camera off again (and then you must remove/replace the battery to get the flash working again).

The flash requires some kind of "master reset" to work. Haven't found a permanent solution to this.

Beep - Beep - Beep - but No Picture

1. If the camera can not focus on a subject, or can not determine the appropriate exposure setting, the camera will beep and disable the shutter button. This is to avoid improper processing of the image. This is usually due to either poor lighting conditions or movement. 2. The camera Flash Element requires ten seconds to recharge between images. Although the camera is ready to continue capturing images almost immediately in bright (daylight) settings, if you are using Flash photography the Flash element will need to charge between shots. If you try to take a picture before the Flash is charged, the camera will beep and disable the shutter button. Once the Flash unit is fully charged (10 seconds), the camera is ready to continue. 3. The batteries may be running low. LCD Display, Flash, and Playback use much more power than taking pictures. It is possible to quickly consume battery power, even if you are not taking many pictures. Try turning the Mode Dial to the OFF position to recycle power. If the camera beeps and will not take a picture under normal conditions, you may need to change batteries.
