SOURCE: I have a Cuddeback C-1000

No, it's not the sensor, it's the flash itself the one that is faulty: the components in the power source have aged and now it takes a lot longer to recharge. And the fact that you are trying to use it without waiting to be fully charged hasn't helped either - the aging has been seriously accelerated; you were beating a dying horse.
Unfortunately this camera has been designed to be a sealed unit so servicing it is impossible. You will have to upgrade it, no way around that. Yes, the newer cameras are less resistant than the old ones, but they are cheaper and you will be able to replace them more often.

My moutrie L50 GameSpy Digital Camera always show a busy signal and it flashes but doesn't take any pictures, what can be the problem?

It only has 32megabytes of capacity built in. It may be full. If you added an SD card for more memory, it likely needs to be formatted for the camera; Especially if you had used the card on a different camera previously.

Clear the memory, and/or format and you should have it working fine.

You can check the overall function of the camera portion by hooking it up to the TV with the cable.

Just got a brand new NEVER OPENED '06' cuddeback Expert model C3300 from a store that never sold it. I put in new batteries and a 256MB CF card and went thru the setup..put in my name a passcode..set the...

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

Camera still reads full and will not work when new memery card installed

I had the same problem. Your memory card likely has too much memory. I put in a 4G card and it would not take a photo. Every time the camera went off it said "Error - Card Full".
You have 2 options.
1.) You can remove the memory card and use the internal memory to take photos (it will only hold 20 pics) and transfer them onto the memory card by shutting the camera off, inserting the card, turning the camera on, wait for the menu to clear and then shutting the camera off again and removing the card. This does work, but you are limited in the number and quality of photos that you will get.
2.) Get a smaller capacity memory card. I went out and bought a 2G card. Funny thing is that the camera wouldn't even recognize it at first. When I turned the camera on a message saying "Please wait" kept flashing on the screen. I waited 10 minutes and just shut it off and pulled the card again. I took the card home and formatted it on my PC. When I put it in the camera the next time it worked fine. So to save you some trouble, buy a smaller card and FORMAT it on your computer before trying it in the camera. It will save you a headache. After all of that BS I finally got the stupid thing to work. It takes beautiful pics but I will not be buying another Cuddeback. My next trail cam will be a different brand for sure. Not worth the hassle IMO.

Your shutter is staying open too long. Do you have it set on "bulb" or "time exposure" or something like that? It doesn't happen on flash pics because the flash is so short, it freezes the action.
