update. I have the camera set in my back yard now. The test light does not appear to work. I will test it here before returning it (or a replacement) to my land. I am new to game cameras (this is my first) and I am double checking to see if I did something wrong. the target trees are well within range. Right now, I will see if my dogs will trigger it.

I am sorry to report, the camera has gone completely non-responsive, and when hooked up to the computer, does not exist to the computer. It does come up as a USB connection, but nothing more. I am afraid this test is on hold until I can afford a new camera. I will update this thread as I have results. :(

Tried internal batteries, 12vt exterior battery pack, and USB. Only result I get is display lights up USB, but the computer can't see it anymore (it did before) . Even without batteries, it should read as a USB device. I tried to use test mode when I hung the camera, but never saw the test light activate. I thought it was just too bright out to see it. So I went by the angles and distances posted in the PDF file. (it's downloaded to my smartphone, so I could follow directions exactly) two months in the woods, and not one picture. I will contact Wildview on monday, and see if there is anything I can do.
Thank you for the camera, Badtoys. It was a noble gesture.

Partial success! I have been able to restore power to the camera. This camera uses the external power pack even if it has batteries. to do that, there is a bypass/cutout switch of sorts opened when a plug is inserted into the 12vt power port. It did not fully close, cutting off all power except USB.
Camera has been reprogrammed again, and rehung for the dogs to activate. I will check it tomorrow, to see if it triggered.

Partial success. Camera has been three days with the dogs, with no triggering at all. I finally got proper pics by removing the flash card. using only the enternal memory. the cards being used are on the approved list for this camera, but as long as ANY card is in place, the camera will not function.

1 or2 GB? The approved list of cards shows up to 16GB. I am using scandisc SDHCcard 8GB. Is there a problem with the type of card I'm trying to use?

I made it down to my hunting land today but not for this test. I spent most of the day reclaiming my road. I also released a couple of rabbits to the property. Turns out there 4 trees down together. it made a quite effective barrier. The forth tree is still hanging as you can see, but the largest tree was so hard, it was throwing sparks, and the chain is way too dull now to do any more. Foot traffic has been restored, and a tractor and trailer will pass with ease, but truck traffic will have to wait.
