Lens stuck out No display No link to computer but will charge battery. Only way to power off is remove battery. Numerous key holds when power on result in no change. View lott's on FixYa. Try gentle but firm exercise of barrel, left right with success when some inward movement felt. Insert battery, power on, screen display yes, take picture yes [onboard memory as no SD installed for tests]. Will update if problem comes back. Gentle but firm is the key, good luck.

I tried to ring Vivitar's Leciester number and it said the number was not recognised. .

GoPro Hero camera. I get a "buzzing" sound on the videos recorded from inside my car. It seems there's some interference with the car electronics, so I've been told (and videos taken with the engine off don't suffer this problem). I've tried to "insulate" the camerea with cooking aluminium sheet, but: 1) I can't cover it entirely, because lens, display and operating buttons must be kept obviously clear; 2) It doesn' solve the problem. Is there any way to solve this problem? Thanks!


The source of the interference is usually the radio signals, so did you try turning off your car radio/music player to see if the problem persists. There are currently no covers that can solve the interference. Your only hope is to suppress the sourc ... GoPro Digital Hero 3 Digital Camera
