\015\012I recommend you to put a new battery , because it seems that your battery life is ended . When battery life is ended it can't be recharged any more . Maybe it shows some volts but there will not be any current flow in it .

Battery life My AA 3000mah batteries don't last 30 mins before the camera switches itself off, indicating that the batteries are flat. When tested on a multimeter they read 1.24volts. The manual say I should get 300 shots using 2500mah batteries. The batteries have been discharged and charged up many times but still the same problem. I'm using Nimh type batteries that read 1.35v full charge and 1.24v when the camera shuts off. Is this a common fault with this camera ?

I have Vivitar 3900 flash that has not been used for several years. It will not run on batteries, due to excess current drain. If connected to a 5-7 volt power supply, the drain goes over .5 amps. The main capacitor (350 ufd @ 400 volts charges to 300 volts and when the flash is turned off holds a charge. Any suggestions for repair?


The capacitor needs to be 're-formed'. Briefly, run through several charge/discharge cycles. ... Vivitar Digital Cameras

Kodak V803 I think this is due to the camera being dropped: The camera switches on but all that appears on the viewscreen is a white light accompanied by black patches of distortion. The distortion suggests that the camera has suffered an impact as it has the appearance of a smashed window - with lines of distortion running across the screen. The view screen itself - is in tact - no evidence of impact - cracks or dents. I cannot get rid of this screen distortion no matter what button I press. Wh

It won't turn on even with a fully charged battery. What do I do? I've owned it for at least 5 years and have three batteries and a pentax charger that turns green when a battery is charged. I put the batteries in correctly. Now the camera will not turn on. My wife was using it on a trip when it happened. I can't seem to get it to turn on now despite trying everything I know and reading the manual. Any ideas for me. Is it possible that all three batteries are too old yet appearing to char
