What model Wildview you have?  I have the Extreme4 and it takes pretty decent night pictures.  Do you have your flash turned off?  They have an option to turn it off to save battery life.  On mine, you can set the flash to ON all the time, OFF, or Auto.  I always set mine to auto.

Will be watching responses on this as I've been considering a second cam and this one is the one I see the most in local stores.

Bigjim what model do you have , I have the extreme 2 It did the same thing it has to do with the batteries . The way to get it to work most of the time is to put it on 12 volts . The Stealth cam 12 volt battery pack works , thats what I have on mine and only get 2 or 2 black pictures out of 50 . You can also set it up for a car battery if you want thats what that plug on the bottom is for , you could use solar cell recharger on the 12 volt . Hope this helps.  --9-8-7

I have the Wildview STC-TGL1.  It has only 3 switches on the camera, one turns on and tests camera , one sets high or low , and one for time out setting. runs on 4 c batteries, I replace once a week when I check both.
God bless and happy hunting
