How do I remove the double flash from Vivitar 8025?
On some cameras (like sony) there is a very fast double flash .. you see only one .. the first sets up the shot the second takes the picture ... its not likely that your vivitar has this feature so i am thinking that your "noticable" double flash is caused by "red eye reduction" being turned on .. on my vivitar (dc8600) the flash mode including red eye reduction is selected by the 4 way switch .. by pressing the right tilt you can cycle thru all the flash modes ... that includes no flash, forced flash, automatic flash and red eye reduction..maybe other modes as well .. the flash is in fully automatic mode when no sysbol appears on the screen .. thats probably where you want to be ... that will flash only once per shot and only when needed .. ..

Is there a way to remove the double flash on the Vivitar 5386
No. The first flash is actually a pre-flash, used by the camera to determine proper exposure and flash intensity. ... Vivitar ViviCam 5386 Digital Camera
Used Vivitar 70-200 zoom on my K200 Pentax. Nothing but aggravation since. Right now the 18-55 lens it came with is on but shutter button is stuck in down position and my flash wont pop up using the manual "up" button. When I look thru lens and push button, flashing "F" is the only thing there. Removed lens and button would move enough to "click" but would not come up. Put lens back on and nothing! Newbie in the extreme and ready to go back to my MX !!

I was needing a new flash for my sony a230 camera and I ordered a sony flash from accessorycircuit.com. Anyway to make a long story short, they were out of the flash I wanted and said that they had got the new Vivitar Pro 648 series flash in and that it was really good and would work with my camera. I wanted to read up and find out more before I bought it. I can only find out the tech specs on the vivitar pro648 on the vivitar site and that is the only place I can find out any info at all.

I have a canon rebel xti with an 18 to 55 lens .. I recently bought an external flash to sit in the hot shoe .. now when I removed the flash from the hot shoe .. the cameras own flash will not pop up and work... I can manually pop the flash but it still will not work.. I thought that when I bought the flash at the camera store the sales person turned off something on the camera for the new flash to work.. is there something I need to change in the menus to get the cameras own flash to work.....
I had the same problem. \015\012Look closely at the hotshoe. Inside it, way over to the side, under one of the tabs on the side, is a tiny metal strip.

I have removed all screws from the case but it will not come loose around the external flash support, I dont see any way to remove the external flash support.
Having been exposed to salt water this long they were right.There is probably a pin you need to remove with the back off holding the flash.It may have to be pulled out with needlenose pliers or it may be springloaded and need one of the ends pushed d ...

A 500D camera does not power up properly, no display. Tried all the obvious: remove battery, remove lens, SD card, recharge battery, check all, still no go. The only sign of life is a flashing blue light in the live view button going at about 2 flashes per second. Any ideas very welcome.

I have a Vivitar Camera that I bought from a Pawn Shop. The Flash worked fine for the first few months having it. I didn't use it for a while, and once I finally did, I heard 3 pops. After that my flash no longer works. When I switch into Flash mode it blinks and goes back to No Flash mode. Do you think it's the flash tube, the circuit or the battery that charges the flash? I opened the camera and nothing looks blown.
The 8025 is a very cheap camera....I hope you didn't pay more than $15 at the pawn shop. Your camera has a blown flash tube. The camera could have been dropped in water by the previous owner. You could have bought one at Walmart that would have at le ... Vivitar ViviCam 8025 Digital Camera
I have a Canon Digital EOS Rebel XT and the built-in flash no longer pops up when needed. This started happening after using a Canon speedlite, but then removing it. I've tried resetting everything, and tried all modes expecting that the ones listed in the manual as using a flash would work, but they dont, it never pops up. I lifted up the flash with my fingernail manually, and then tried taking a picture where a flash was most definitely needed, but it still had a long delay, no flash, and

Pentax Optio 555 Digital Camera. Once I have taken a couple of photos in a row, the camera continually flashes red & green. Like it is continually thinking. I cannot then even get the camera to shut down eithout removing the battery or just leaving it until it times itself out. If i remove the battery, I still have to turn it on & then off again to get the lense to retract. Can you help to solve this problem. It does it no matter what the charge in the battery is like. Full or half used.
