Having problems with your Vivitar Digital Cameras ?

I used my camera for 17-20 shots but then layed it aside and haven't used it again until now. Will the film be harmed? It's been over a year. That's probably a silly question but can I remove it all right or should I take it to a dealer? Barbara Hamann



Answers :

Hi\012It is maybe, But it is o.k to use rest of picture if you have manual wind camera. I am sure one is really no problem. (condition---if you have automatic wind, then sometime film sticks inside of and cause wind problem.) So the decision is yours.\012Thanks and best regard!
Hi Barbara - The film is actually a digital data file in a digital camera so your 17-20 photos should still be fine on the camera. Data files don't go bad with time.\015\012

\015\012You can just take up shooting from where you left off originally, just make sure the batteries are fresh and off you go.\015\012

CDR question When using my CDRW with CDR floppies, I can only save once and then the CD is cosidered "full" and can only be used as an archive. This being the case if I were using a SONY MAVICA MVCMVC-CD1000, how would I continue to save to the same floppy during more than one session or once removed can no more data be saved to the same floppy. I can only take 8-12 photos and the camera tells me the disc is full. I know that a disc has more capacity than that! How can I correct this pr

I bought a second-hand w1200 but it came without any ancillary audio-video output wire for it. You probably know but confirm it for me that this and its connects are used to go to the camera and also the USB port of the computer: can the w1200 camera be used for internet live webcams; also, where can I get this right kind of wire and with small camera end connect; where, in my locale can I get this smallest the smallest trapazoid fit connnect that I've ever seen; I'm in Fort Wayne, Indi

Memory card I love my Gateway DC-T50 but the card fills up too quickly.I have a Kodak SD 256 MB memory card and want to get a bigger one.So I went and got a 2 GB and installed it , the camera screen said This card cannot be used. I took it back to the store and the clerk said it was probably too big because I have an older camera. So I exchanged it for a 1GB and it shows the same error message. My question is; what is the biggest memory card this camera can use? I have misplaced my manual, or I

I need help. I've used my memory card many times with no problems. Now I put it in my laptop and absolutely nothing happens. It shows under "Devices and Removable Storage" but nothing happens. Under its "Properties" it says "the device is working properly".

Camera dropped My son accidently dropped my C743 digital camera. It must have hit on the right side top corner because now the screen is all white with a black triangle outline through the top right side through the middle of the screen. The camera still takes good pict., but you cant see what you took, and what is the use of having a digital camera then? My question is: can the screen be fixed, or will it be cheaper to buy a new one? Thanks!

Used Vivitar 70-200 zoom on my K200 Pentax. Nothing but aggravation since. Right now the 18-55 lens it came with is on but shutter button is stuck in down position and my flash wont pop up using the manual "up" button. When I look thru lens and push button, flashing "F" is the only thing there. Removed lens and button would move enough to "click" but would not come up. Put lens back on and nothing! Newbie in the extreme and ready to go back to my MX !!

I have a problem with my sony cyber-shot dsc T-3. Everything is all right except that there is probably a problem with the lense as the image (on the screen when I want to take a photo or film) is not right (it is pink, dark with lines on it). It is not a problem with the screen, because I can look at my photos / videos which were done before this problem happened. I think it is because I tried to use the camera in a hospital (I had a baby last week) when I was in a surgery room. Maybe too magne

I have a kodak z8121s and I have been running it with regular aa batteries but it uses them up so fast so I decided to go ahead and spend over $100 to buy the kodak lithium 3.7v rechargable battery klic8000 with a charger and guess what the battery will not work in my camera. I know that the battery is the right battery and I know that the battery works because my daughter has the same camera and it works on hers. so my question is what would cause a brand new battery not work on my camera

I received a Canon PowerShot A1100 IS as a Christmas present in 2009/10. Right from the start, it seemed to use batteries like they were going out of style. So, I bought good quality batteries and removed them between photo-taking sessions. Recently, while on a 2-week vacation, I went through 20 AA batteries (Energizer and Duracel)! Any advice or suggestions to rectify this inconvenient and highly wasteful problem would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Leta

D40X LCD Hi Dear Because of the removal of the control panel LCD the D40X uses the main LCD monitor for camera information display and the change of settings. By default this display is not shown, instead you press the 'info' button to show or hide it, you can optionally have the display on all the time. My question is: What i have to do for have the LCD always on. Thank you Quim

BATTERY I have an older DSC-50 which works great...I bought the new W-170 and they both use the NP-BG1 batteries. I have used the newer battery in the DSC-50 camera and now when I try to use the orignal older battery my camera tells me (For use with compatible battery only) and then shuts down. I can still use the new battery in both cameras. I get the same response from the W-170 with the older battery. Battery has been great and has been holding a good charge... Any ideas?

Batteries This camera has been the worst digital camera I have ever used.  The pic quality is fine.  The ease of use is fine.  The problem lies in the battery longevity.  Maybe that is not even the right description.  I will put in new batteries and only use my camera for a short time.  The next time I go to use the camera it is not at all uncommon for it to not turn on.  Even though it has new batteries and was not left on, the batteries are dead.  It happens with the rechargeable as well as re
