Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

When I turn my camera on I get a "ZOOM ERROR" displayed. Can you please help me with this,,, as I have put my manual in storage at the moment! Thanks

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the \012probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use\012\012\012\012\012\012\012 these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly ,\012 try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the \012shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , \012and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then \012try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently \012pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may \012cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another\012 way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and \012then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to\012 not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and \012down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the \012camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your \012camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of \012your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair \012center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to \012replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest\012 you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any \012off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about\012 warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope \012the advise is useful.

When I put the memory card in the camera it says 'cannot read' it. How do I format the card? I know it has the right 'size' memory. The memory card I am using is the same one I used a few months ago and I saved the pictures I took to a computer and erased the pictures off the card. Now as soon as I turn the camera on it says 'This card cannot be read'. Im frustrated as there is nothing in the manual that seems to get my camera working again. I have only had it for a year. Please HELP!

I just bought a Vivitar Vivicam T027 camera. It says to use a SD card. I tried that - does not fit. I tried the SDHC card - does not fit. Please help me by telling me what kind of card this camera does take. The 800 number given in the manual is useless - 45 minutes and then it disconnected without me talking to anyone. I'm at a loss and I have also given this camera to a friend as a gift so I'm embarrassed because I can't get mine to work or hers. Thanks for helping me.

Are you sure you are not placing the card in up side down? SD cards definitely fit on this one, just make sure the slot is empty when you pushing it in.\015\012\015\012don't force it, if it feels like your forcing it, its upside down.\015\012 ... Vivitar ViviCam 3915 Digital Camera

I got a new SP800UZ. I have never used a camera, other than point and shoot. Are there "how to videos" or classes I can take? I read the manual and don't even understand the jargon. I'm really in kindergarten here. I signed up for a community ed class on digital photography, but it isn't "how to use your camera". It is more of a "how to get great photos, IF you KNOW HOW to use your camera". Please help!
