Having problems with your Vivitar Digital Cameras ?

Hi Karen,
\015\012I can't see any discussion of what went on before, but I will try to help you. There are a few common things that keep a camera from powering up. First of all, make sure the batteries are good, and fully charged. Make sure both the batteries' and camera's battery terminals are clean (they can become slightly oxidized).
\015\012The next thing to suspect is the on/off switch. Unfortunately, the device has to be disassembled to check this, as well as other issues. If cleaning the battery terminals doesn't help, it would probably not be cost efficient to have it fixed.
\015\012Like I said, not sure what was talked about but hope this helps.
Basically there are only a few fixable cause for this. One is a bad battery that will not take a charge. Usually the camera might show some life on the charger or when conencted to the usb.

Usually what has happened is a internal board failure or issue. Rarely it can be a switch but that is very uncommon. With your description you would have to send it into Vivitar or a camera repair shop for repairs. What you have to watch out for is the repair cost if it isn;t covered by warrenty. That can add up and be as much as a new unit. Get a quite from the repair depot. Sometimes they will have a deal on exchange or repair. This will be a set fee regardless of what they do.

Troubleshooting problems I have a canon powershot s60. I tried to take a picture earlier and the screen is completely white. The camera turns on, the battery is fully charged and there is nothing wrong with the digital card. THe camera wasn't dropped nor did it get wet.
