    The Running Log

    Those are from a Browning Strike Force, not the best of my commercial cameras but just the one I happened to put there. The Strike Force does really well at night, but the daytime videos, especially in low light, aren't as good as my Browning Recon Force or Special Ops or my homebrewed video cameras using Olympus VG-140s or my homebrewed Flip HD (the homebrews were built using Ralph's boards).

    Troubleshoot LCD board

    Yes l did resolder the connections, about a month or so ago when l was initially trouble shooting. It is the newer board as it has the new chip and it does not perform the "warming up 45 seconds".

    Who’s still open?

    You must have put them together pretty well then. That is a great track record of them being issue free!

    Hmm, maybe try reflowing the solder connections on the board. Is this an old board?
  11. Hey, do you still have ur DXG567 ?

    Ok thanks bull, yes I have been away a while. i did just order a few fres from Gary, I’ve been lucky and only needed to repair a few of my 25 cams over the past 4-5 years. i still have 7 or my 9 DXG’s and 14 of my 16 Sony’s still working. gyp

    Troubleshoot LCD board

    Ok I have looked it over really carefully. When I power the board on with the camera in the build it comes up "camera refresh" the camera lights up the LCD screen the lens in and out then l get "ready". So that is all normal. With walk test on l try it does not work. With walk test on, on start up it still doesn't detect motion and if I turn both off it does not snap a picture. I have checked the kill switch it is ok. Any other suggestions?

    Hey gyp, Long time no see... Gary at snapshot sniper is still goin with multiple boards including the bf outdoors bigfoot boards and Ralph at RCDavis game cam solutions sells stuff on his site too.

    Troubleshoot LCD board

    This is the board l got the PIR off of you a month or so back. I am going to have another look over it again after l finish work and l will post up here what it will and won't do.
  16. It’s been a long long time since I’ve logged on,, 3 years likely. so where can a guy get some basic parts ? im down to dented and hole punched IR lenses and dead boards. i believe the online store has closed, and I do see postings of members selling everything out, whole lots. and if there is still an active member from Canada with some boards and lenses, contact me please. US is ok too but long time to complete payment and shipping. any help is appreciated. gyp

    Thanks, leave it with me l am now in the studio for the day. I will get onto it later today and get back to you in the morning - which will be evening for you.

    Troubleshoot LCD board

    Ok, good, so we know the PIRs are new. Lets go to the next step. Have you tested the camera hack wires manually by touching them to see if it powers on and shutters with the hack wires? If yes, lets go to next step. Gary asked if it works in walktest, if it does, will the cam power on at all after walktest is over? If it powers up but wont shutter, maybe it could be a timing issue with the cam not working in the build but works out side of the build. Is the timing set correctly in the menu? If I remember right, it will act as though the pir isnt working if the timing isnt set right in the menu so the cam wont fire. Not sure what the s600 speed is but maybe adjust that setting to a slower timing and see if it fires with motion.

    Hey George, thanks for your reply. It was Gary who suggested I try a new PIR & he was kind enough to send me the one l tried but it didn't fix it unfortunately. Any other tests or suggestions will be greatly appreciated cheers .

    Does it detect motion in walk test mode?

    Troubleshoot LCD board

    That may be something Gary can chime in on. I actually have a couple old ones that do the same but haven't ever tried to fix them yet. One will stay in walk test unless I turn it off in the settings but wont detect if walk test is off, the other wont detect motion after going in to stand by. Its possible the PIR's may be going bad, I might try to reflow the solder on the PIR's just to see if that may be the problem. I know on some older stuff that works some of the time.
  22. The old dead end road I camp on next to an old large pond. the road is just to the right from how the vid is facing. These little stinkers come around and walk across the road in front of my camp while I'm gone during the day..

    Spooky - interesting friday night

    Went up Thursday to spend the last 4 days of bow season. After getting to my spot, set up camp and chilled till around 3 and headed out to sit on my stump near where I camp. I noticed when leavin my camp, deer had been crossing the road about 60 yds up the dead end I camp on so when I left my stump I grabbed the cam I had there and brought it back with me, thinkin Id just hang it in the woods just off the road where those deer tracks were crossing by my camp. Its friday now and headed out for morning hunt, I just walk to a few different stumps now to hunt since mobility isnt as good as it use to be. Long day and saw no deer, only a bobcat that walked within 15 ft of me cruisin the trail. So, its 7:10 and its getting dark so I headed back to camp. I made a quick dinner, ate and was just kickin back reading in my netting canopy. I was gettin sleepy so thought, hec with it, gonna lock up for the night, get in my tent and fall asleep readin. Its dark and almost 8:30 So, I walk around to the door of my truck to lock it and just flashed my flash light up the road, like I always do. Well, my light caught eyes flashing back at me. I thought, cool a deer. Noooope, a big bear, sitting in the road, 30 yards from the front of my truck. Wow, really cool. Except normally when a bear sees a person around here they run like the wind in the opposite direction. This one DID NOT. I had my flashlight right on him, flipped my head lights on, honked the horn and told it to get outta here. It stayed, swung its head back n forth a few times then turned and walked back out the road and into the dark. Normally, I am not bothered but he acted really strange. I went back to my canopy and put a couple things away and heard a noise. I flipped my light on and up the road and there he was again, sittin right back in the same spot. This happened 7 times from around 8:30 pm to 2:47 am. It made for a very long night. Now so you know, Im camped at the edge of a large pond, camped on an old road next to it which is the end of the road before it turns in to a natural darn. Well, I decided at 3:00 am since he hadn't been back for a bit, Im just gonna get in my tent, I'm beat tired and fairly stressed from the ordeal. To make a long story short, the back of my tent is approx 10 feet from pond edge, down a steep 8ft embankment. I dozed off only to be awoken by the sound of what seemed like a volkswagon bug bein dropped in the pond right next to me. It scared me up and awake and I grabbed for my flashlight in the dark tent, fumbling for a moment to get my bearings and see what the hec was goin on. As Im sittin up in my sleepin bag, Im hearing this splashing, swimming noise and whoofing sound. This freak bear came back, dove in to the pond and swam across it, splitting the lily padys and leaving a path in the pond, an easy 75 yd swim, whoofin and splashin all the way across. This has to be the weirdest thing I have had happen to me and now this freak bear is behind my camp with ez trail access right to my tent. I could hear him loudly crashin thru brush and breakin branches in the woods directly behind my tent. Very nerve racking to say the least. Now mind you, its still dark and though I couldn't get out of my tent, dressed fast enough to see this, it was clear after waiting till day light to see where he walked right up to my truck, then turned and walked to the pond edge and just dove in. You could see on the opposite side where he had climbed out and over some old logs and left a trail of wet. After it was light out and all calm now, I decided to go ahead and hunt for the morning at my stump. Well, I came back to camp around noonish and when I was walkin into my camp could see clearly, that bear had walked all over my little dead end road, back n forth so many times, it looked like his foot prints were part of the road. I just realized I had that cam off in the woods about 20 yds from where he was standin and goin back n forth so I thought, what are the odds, maybe he walked by that cam. So, I pulled the card, walked into camp and sure enough, he walked right in front of it so I got a short vid of him. He was a good size bear from my view on my phone. I got home late sunday night and really wanted to look at the big boar on my pc's bigger screen so after tellin wifey about the ordeal, went and downloaded it and watched it. Ive watched it numerous times now and to my shock, noticed this was NOT a boar, but a big sow. You can see in the first few seconds of the vid, she is milking or still feedin cubs by her swollen, hangin teets. But, why no cubs with her? Where were they? Why would she still be feedin cubs this late in the year? Well, this video helped me to understand the bears odd behavior from all night friday night better. Whatcha think, was she on a mission to get by my camp to get to her cubs? They should be around 7 to 8 mo old at this time of year so why were they not with her? I've seen hundreds of bears in these mountains, many with cubs. Momma is never more than 30 to 50 yds from them ever from my experience and Ive never seen one still milkin this late in the year or without them close by. At one point friday night this bear circled thru the woods and came around to the driver side of my truck (10:55pm and yep, I was sittin in the driver seat because of this bear...😊) hence how I caught her on the video because she cut thru the woods in front of my truck and circled around to my left. Any of you guys experience anything like this or explain the milking cubs this late and not have them with her? Here is the short vid.

    I have a problem with an LCD board (SS), it fails to detect motion. I replaced the PIR but that did not fix the problem. I have checked all connectors etc. The S600 works fine outside the build. Thanks
