Trail cam problem..

    Recommended Posts

    Just checking over my Ltl Acorn trail cam, new batteries, sd card etc.

    Hasn't been used for about 18mnths but worked fine with good results.

    Went through the settings and decided to use a password this time due to security issues the last time it was used.

    I seem to have now locked myself out!

    It won't accept the password I set? Anyone able to help?.....or have I just wasted a perfectly good trail cam?

    Thanks....

    I am sure someone will be along to help you out.

    It's not the sd card switched to off.

    You might try, if nothing else to put it in the freezer for a couple of days to restore it.

    SD card is new and ok. 

    Will try the freezer thing, how long? Does the camera have internal memory or is it all on the s.d.card?

    Ltl Acorn system reset is done by taking out batteries and SD card and leaving for at least 24hrs.

    If that fails I think you need to send it to one of the Acorn dealers with proof of original purchase, for which they might charge a fee.

    Thanks John, tried the shut-off method but didnt work.

    Found the main dealer who wants £20 to unlock it....that's with proof of purchase which I don't have.

    It was bought in a group purchase either on pigeonwatch or stalkingdirectory, can't remember.

    Ive moved house twice since so don't even have the box/instructions??

    Got an Aldi Trail cam out doing the business but more cameras the better..

    Anyone else got any ideas????
