Please note, your 1 year warranty is always with your retailer. For instance, if you bought directly from Amazon then your warranty is with them. However, here at Pakatak Ltd, we carry Ltl Acorn spare parts and are always happy to test your camera for you if you think it has developed a fault.
HINTS, TIPS, Do’s & Don’ts!
We strongly recommend using only Uniross or Energiser rechargeable batteries. Uniross are the brand we use here for testing etc. We have heard reports of other brands such as Duracell causing problems. One common problem with weaker batteries is that your camera will only record very short video clips (even when set to record for 30 seconds for instance). This is because the camera senses low power and so saves & shuts down the recording, it then does the same thing when next triggered.
IMPORTANT – Do not leave batteries inside the camera if you are not using it, this could result in acid leak and ruin the camera – this is not covered under warranty!
Always use genuine branded SD cards, there have been in the past many fake cards on the market (especially being sold on Ebay etc). Also, always format your SD card using the “format” option in the camera menu, do not format your SD card in your PC for use with the Acorn cameras.
If you think your camera has developed a fault, try a system reset as below:
Remove all batteries & SD Card, bring the camera inside for 24hrs then test again.
The infrared beam is powerful so don’t position the camera too close to any solid objects as your night shots could suffer “white out” issues.
Infrared Cut Filter (situated in front of the lens):
When moving the camera in your hand you may notice the IR cut filter moving in front of the lens, this is perfectly normal. When the camera is in operation, it will decide if the cut filter is needed automatically depending upon light levels.
Please let us know by emailing email@example.com if you think of any other useful information that should be added to this guide.
