    Typically they would atleast offer to give you so much off a new cam. I dont know of anyone who fixes them though. I just traded 2 broken ones in on 2 new stealth cams.

    Oh great! Now if find this out. Year 3 for 2 of my cams.

    My first cam was one that used a 6v battery. That died last year. Used it for about 10 years.

    Have you taken it apart to see if it's an easy fix? I have fixed Coverts a couple of times. Depending on the problem it may be an easy fix.

    I had two moultries die on me. One was an M80Black, which was a great camera. The other was a 990i like yours. They couldn’t do anything. Stinks because both lasted only 2 seasons.

    I had 2 Spypoint cams for couple years and both died a early death. I wouldn't have another one unless someone gave it to me free. Then I would trade it off fast. On another forum everyone had the same results. That forum used to buy direct from Spypoint in bulk but no more.

    Go buy on ebay....cheaper so it doesn't hurt as much when they die.

    best way to fix those is to very slowly walk into the kitchen with it...then stand over the trash can and drop it in.

    Haha! The better solution is to take it to public land and set it on a tree, then it becomes somebody's else problem when they steal it!

    A fitting punishment indeed for someone who steals a camera.:lol:. They would probably bring the thing back

    That seems to be the life expectancy of a lot of trail cams!
