It appears sudenly 4 days ago in my vacation. I change all the batteries (AA + cr 1220) several times ... I met a couple with the sam



Answers :

Hi,
It seems Zoom / Wide button got damaged and causing that problem.
I'm afraid there is not easy/ quick fix for that and control buttons flexible board will be replaced by camera repair shop because camera will take apart.
In this model, only one button works at a time and zoom / wide button in continuly sending signal to system control chip of camera that is why other buttons seems nonoperational.
Since it is an old model so I would recommend to buy new camera instead of repairing it.
Hope these info will help you.
Thanks.

Just bought the ViviCam X014. Installed batteries and SD card. The camara will turn on and the LED screen will illuminate (becomes white) but that's about all the thing will do. No image appears in the LED screen. I cannot zoom in, or out, and pressing the Mode button (or any button for that matter) does nothing. There was no user manual with the camara, just the basic quick start guide, which has provided no information on what to do. What am I missing?

The button that contros the zoom and shutter snapped off my camera. It appears that the tips of the three tabs sheared off. The small spring that brings the zoom button back to center is still attached to the camera. If you set the button back in place, the zoom and shutter will still work, but the button comes right back off as you take your finger away. Can a new button be ordered and snapped on? If so, where would one order this part?
