Shooter- Sorry to hear you’re having issues man. The trend I see with the XSight is people having issues whenever they’re on battery power. I opted remove the battery and strictly use battry charger such as the RAV BATTERY PACK. Actually this is exactly what I’m using and it gave me a solid 6hrs of use. My thinking is when using video and WiFi, it drains the battery much faster (depending on the type of battery being used). And when the power gets low, it causes a hiccup in the programming.  So my recommendation, if you dont mind the extra weight, is to ONLY use a separate external battery pack to power up the XSight. Batteries suck!!! Anyway

IF you’re still having glitches WHILE using an external battery pack, try SELECTING “restore factory defaults” (with no sd card inserted) once done turn off the XS, THEN insert a micro-card with the 619 firmware update on a quality mirco-card and restart. Power on the XS and IF it starts to update then let it run completely. You’re XS may shut off and on a couple times to completely install the update. So be patient. Hopefully that will resolve your issue and get back to shooting…on external battery only.
