    Tasco trail camera???

    Ok I have a tasco 3mp trail camera, the cheap $50 one from Walmart. For some reason it stopped working, when I turn it on the screen shows 4 dashes and the red light on the front stays a constant red (not flashing or anything). Tried to call tasco today but they aren't open until Thursday, i'm trying to set it up tomorrow in my new property. So anyone else have this problem our know how to solve it? I put new batteries in it and 2 different cards, it's worked all year so not sure what's going on.

    How old is the camera?
    I have one, and from time to time it stops working, then after some time, works again
    but if the display won't allow you to do anything, odds are its going to have to go back to Tasco
    and might cost more in shipping plus repair, than its worth
    mine is 4 yrs old and last 2 weeks hasn't worked
    so feel the pains with them
    if you recently bought it, you can try taking it back to wally world?
    othe wise, try placing it some place warm,, let it sit a few day, and then try new batteries, and a new sd card

    Just tried youtubeing it with no results. I bought the camera November 2012 so it's only 13 months old. Brought it in today so we'll let it sit inside in the warmth and see what happens.
