Having problems with your Vivitar Digital Cameras ?

Switches on......but thats about it - Vivitar Digital Cameras


Answers :

You didn't provide much information, but if the camera is shutting down after just a few seconds, try cleaning the battery contacts. Remove the batteries and wipe the contacts inside the camera with a clean soft cloth (heavy corrosion on the contacts may require cleaning with a fine wire brush, steel wool, or fine sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment, then clean and reinstall the batteries.

This process clears about 90% of quick shutdown problems. If it doesn't clear your problem, please post again and provide the make and model of your camera, along with a more detailed description of the problem.

Switching off I have four older digital cameras (Olympus, HP, Oregon and Vivitar) and they're now all doing much the same thing. That is switching off as soon as they're switched on. The problem has come on progressively over a few days with all of them so it seems like a virus. I download images directly into a Windows XP system.

I have an SL620 Samsung Digital camera, when I try to take pictures I can't due to it saying card locked. I have taken the memory card out, re-charged, cleaned and looked at the manual for this camera. I can not find anything on how to deactivate this. I do not have a switch next to my camera or memory chip to switch over. I read the suggestion on flipping the switch I do not have one. I have no switch on any part of my camera just all the buttons for mamory etc. please help I am very frustrated


Look at the memory card itself. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper ... Samsung SL620 Digital Camera

Frozen Camera I have a Panasonic Lumix TZ3 digital camera. The last time it worked, the screen went checkered, so i turned it off. But upon turning it off, the lens of the camera stayed out like it was taking a picture. Now it won't turn on. I've tried recharging the battery, changing memory cards, no memory card, switching settings and turning the on/off switch. Is there anything to be done or I do I just need to get a new camera?

The power switch won't turn to Off from the Player position. There is a tiny green button that usually releases the switch so it will turn. This tiny green button seems to move in but I'm not sure if it's going in far enough. I suspect it is broken on the inside where it releases. I don't know if I can remove the switch knob by prying it up off the switch or if you can suggest a method of fixing this. I don't want to spend a whole lot of money on the camera (digital cameras look inviting), but I

A week ago I purchased a Canon Ixus 970 digital camera. When using in dark conditions yesterday, I noticed two bright blue dots on the LCD screen. I've switched the camara off and on again and have taken the battery out and replaced it again, but they are still there in exactly the same place. Is this normal for a digital camera? I've had a couple of cheapo's before but have never had this problem. So it seems a bit strange that I have these irritiating dots on a £200 camera. Shoul
