Having problems with your Vivitar ViviCam 3746 Digital Camera ?

The shutter is stuck on my vivitar 3746 and won't turn on or respond in any way. what can i do?


Answers :

This always happens on mine when the batteries are low or taking them out while lens is extended. What I had to do was take it apart and manually wind back in the lens via the gears that extend it. Hope this helps. Otherwise the camera is rendered useless.

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.
