Having problems with your Moultrie MFH-DGS-100 Digital Camera ?
Batteries are "bleeding". put them in about a week ago. camera comes on but won't switch to auto then goes off.
If by "bleeding" you mean leaking, temperature extremes affect some brands of batteries more than others. If the battery acid is coating the contacts in the camera, you will need to clean them.

When I switch the camera on the screen stays blank even though the lens comes out, it eventually goes off (with the lens still out after about 40 seconds). I can get the camera to work if I press the green "view" key and then, after the picture appears, press the red camera icon and it will go into auto shoot mode. Happens every time now. I can't take it in under warranty as it was a present and I don't have the receipt unfortunately.

Wide problem The moment the 3200 is switched on the wide angle indicator shows and the lens goes into wide and then tele. After this you cant click. Occassionally, on switching up the wide does not happen and shots can be taken and wide switch works. Switch it off and on again and the same problem happens. As long as the camera is on and the wide does not come up everything is fine.

Zoom my camera isnt an olympus FE - 230 digital camera, its a kodak M836, i can look at my pictures okay, but i cant take any, as when i turn it on to take a picture the lens goes out, and then back it and it switches off. it is nothing to do with the battery as i have charged it several times. - my dad thinks that it goes back in because there is some sand inside (as we recently went on a beach holiday) and that the sand is stopping the zoom from coming out all the way, so it goes back in, alth
