Having problems with your Vivitar Digital Cameras ?

I appear unable to fit a 2GB SD card into my Vivitar Vivicam 8320. Rather than using force I wonder if there is a trick I am unaware of. Comments welcome.


Answers :

The sign on the card slot indicates the correct position for the SD card whereas the drawing in the instruction booklet does not.

I recently bought a Nikon D-40 and was wondering if there was a way to take pictures using the monitor rather than looking through the view finder. I have looked at the directions numerous times yet can't figure it out.


Nope. The LCD is only for viewing images in playback mode, and for setting the menu choices. Very few digital SLR's have what you are looking for, which is most commonly called "live view". Frankly, it isn't a very easy thing to use on any camera I'v ... Nikon Digital Cameras

Lens Error My HP M425 camera has not been used for a while but when i wanted to use it it came up with Lens Error:M425-14(7f80). What is that and how can i get it resolved since it never fell & it was ok the last time i used it. Lens Error 15, I tried the W-40 trick and the tapping trick. But the lens does not want to stay open.

I have a Canon PowerShot SD500, Digital ELPH. It has been WONDERFUL! Since I have used it a lot and for years traveling, I am wondering how much longer it will work. Is there an average lifespan for these cameras? What camera should I replace it with if I want comparable quality and function? What symptoms will develop when it is reaching the age that it will need to be replaced? I hope it lasts forever as it is a wonderful camera. The only thing it doesn't do is video.

When I press the power button for my Olympus FE-190 to turn the camera on nothing happens. I haven't used it for a while so I initially thought that the battery might not have any charge. When I put the battery in the charger the charging light stays on for a few minutes and then goes out. I'm wondering if the battery needs replacing. I don't use the camera very often, have had it for a few years and, stupidly, have a tendancy to leave the battery in it when the camera is not in use.


Well, are your batteries in the right slots, and put in right position? Are the batteries used? Was your camera exposed to water? These might be reasons why this is happening to you. If this isn't a very good solution, I have more details, want them? ... Olympus FE-190 Digital Camera

Color Problems I have currently been using a Kodak 14n at my current job and have noticed something rather strange. With every picture I take, the photo has an deep magenta cast. In photoshop 7 I adjust the color either by using autocolor or by manual color adjustment. After getting the color a close as I can, I notice that there are faint sections of color vertically across the picture. One third is slightly green, the middle third is yellow, and the right third is magenta. So basically I have

Have just inherited this digital camcorder. Want to record video onto card rather than tape so bought a new card today. Tried to use for the first time but on pressing the record button I get a red 10 second countdown on the screen and then it beeps and the recording stops. Am able to play back the 10 seconds of footage ok but can't get it to record for any longer.

I cannot play my SD Card video clips on my computer. They appear as a series of still photos when put on to my computer. I usually use VLC for all my videos on my computer and have no other problems with it. I used a card recovery website to restore the SD Card as all the photos/video clips were "hidden". The Card Recovery v5.20 did a wonderful job of recovering the photos but only two of the many video clips actuall play. I purchased a Don't Panic CD Rom from Jessups. This only recovered

Hi all, I wonder if you can supply some advice regarding a Sigma17-35mm lens I purchased earlier in the year. Basically if I use the automatic or 'P' setting on my Canon EOS 30D camera the image is over exposed by 1 to 2 stops. If I use the same functions with my Canon 18 -55 kit lens the exposure is correct so I would presume the camera is not causing the problem. The only way I can get a correct exposure with the Sigma lens is to compensate manually for each shot. Please note the exposure p

I've had my camera for about 3 years now and have never had any problems until a couple of weeks ago. When I turned the camera on, it forced me to reset date/time and would occasionally show aperture 00 and not take a picture. Turning the camera off and then on again, or removing and replacing the battery temporarily took care of the problem. Now I am getting the ERR 01 and can not take pics at all, regardless of which lens I use or whether I am using the IS option. I've tried cleaning the c

Hi, I have just bought the Panasonic FZ45 and seem to have a problem with the flash. It will not pop up automatically when in "IA" mode. The display actually shows the symbol indicating that the flash is forced off. Have tried to change this using the REC set up menu but to no avail (incidentally the option to force the flash off appears in the user manual, but not on the REC menu). I have searched some of the forums on the web and it has been suggested that the FZ45 does not have an auto fla

Hi , My Fuji S9600 has just refused to power-up using batteries, although it still powers-up and operates correctly when i attach the mains PSU adapter. I wonder if this is a common occurrence on this model and how easy it is to get sorted. I have used rechargeable batteries since the camera was new (approx 3 yrs) and have tested the batteries as V.good. So i'm assuming that the problem is with the camera somewhere. Do you think if i reset the camera in the menu that would cure the problem , or
