Gary Delgado and George Wiley were also instrumental in its founding. ACORN's first campaign was to help welfare recipients attain their basic needs, such as clothing and furniture. This drive, inspired by a clause in the Arkansas welfare laws, began their effort to create and sustain a movement to assist welfare and lower-income working individuals; they developed the Arkansas Community Organizations for Reform Now, the beginnings of ACORN.
Please do not use "post comments" to ask for camera help and advice. Use phone, Skype IM or eMail. Like all cameras of this type, the Ltl Acorn models do have their issues and I answer a large number of emails requesting help. Some problems are just mistakes with menu settings, others are issues with memory cards and some Acorn project camera faults.
This post is an attempt to collate and illustrate potential problems which, in most cases, can be corrected by users if they have the right information. Some issues may require some analysis by the user, but most often a simple procedure or a firmware update will correct the problem.
I hope this post will help you keep your camera running without costly returns and time spent trying to explain problems. If you have a camera problem which is not answered below please email, Skype or phone. Do not use the post comments to ask for advice.
Real or Fake cloned Ltl Acorn Firmware upgrade issues: Before I go into Acorn project issues, one thing which is very important is to determine that you have a genuine camera manufactured by Ltl Acorn. There is at least one company that I am aware of, who stole the case design and who, I believe, are currently the subject of a law suit in China.
They manufacture a range of lookalikes which are available from a variety of internet sources. Genuine Acorn the Acorn logo top left. The bottom box is the oldest and similar to the box in figure 1b.
The two boxes above show the 0. How alike the internal electronics are to the genuine Acorns I have no idea, but if you are unfortunate enough to have one of these cameras it is unlikely that it will respond well to a genuine Acorn firmware update. In a situation like this it would be impossible to reload the camera with the original software, and the camera would be useless.
Fake packaging shown by an Amazon seller. Note that there is no Acorn logo on the box. How to tell the difference: This is a registered trademark. Acorn clone without trademark Distributors and retailers of cloned cameras have Fig 3: Bar code labels and approval marks with nine figure serial numbers similar to those shown in figure 3 A and figure 4 MM will always be found on genuine cameras.
I have seen images of cloned cameras, apparently without labels and marks. The splash screen is always as seen in figure 5 and appears when the camera is switched on to the test switch position.
The splash screen picture is the same for all Ltl Acorn Camera models. Acorn Splash Screen all Models Clone Models that I have seen usually have a splash screen which displays flowers fig 5a and is predominantly blue in colour.
Don't switch directly from test to on or visa versa. SD Cards are the camera's memory and without one loaded into the card slot, the camera simply won't work.
If you switch the camera and onto test without inserting an SD card, the camera will beep, show the splash screen and then go dead. This will also happen if the SD card is faulty see troubleshooting note below Maximum card sizes: Don't try to force the card into the slot.
With both models the contact side of the card is always towards the front of the camera. Card and slot can both be damaged by using force.
