Default Cam problems

Two of my game cams have went screwy on me. Both have the same problem they constantly take pics a minute apart when they are turned on. One is a primos 46 and the other is a bushnell sentry. Any idea whats going on here?
Thanks for any help

It is called a run away camera. I suspect that the sensor is shot, and therefore it keeps telling the camera that it sees something, so the camera keeps taking pictures until the card is full or the batteries run out.

It is very common, and I have not heard of anyone having a solution short of buying a new camera or sending the camera in for repair.

I have had 2 Bushnell trophy cams do this, and thankfully BUshnell made good on their 2 year warranty. I actually paid the $20 for the extended warranty on the last Bushnell cam I bought.

Wish I had better news.

Sensor issue for sure. Email the companies and see what they have to say. Ya never know, they might take care of it for you.
