    I am getting all black photos at night on my wildgame IR4......Has anyone else ever experienced this? The day time pictures are fine. The cam is only a week old....Is the IR broke?

    My guess would be that the IR isn't working on the camera. Try setting it up at home in the dark and walk in front of it. Look to see if the IR lights illuminate. If they don't, that's your problem.

    I agree.

    This camera has a LED that blinks when the sensor in front of the camera is triggered. If you take the camera home and turn off all the lights. Walk in front of the camera and see if the LED blinks. If it does, then you definitely have a "IR" problem. This will help the guys at Wildgame trouble shoot your problem.

    good luck.

    I have gone through 3 cameras since June. First IR-4 lasted 4 weeks started taking black pictures at nite. Called company sent a new one . That one lasted 3 weeks then just stopped working. E-mailed their costumer service department on what I think of their camera's sent me their x6c. This one lasted me 3 weeks and stopped taking pictures. Just called costumer service again today sendind me another x6c. Costumer service is great just dont think their cameras are. But hey they keep sending me new ones.
