Having problems with your Vivitar ViviCam 3815 Digital Camera ?

Vivitar 3815 My Vivitar 3815 just flashes on, then off, when I try to power it up. I've replaced the batteries and can't think of anything else. Any suggestions? Thanks. Cris [email protected]


Answers :

It's because the batteries aren't strong enough. You are probably using alkaline batteries, which are not recommended for digital cameras because they drain easily and quickly. Use nimH batteries.

Camera locked Hi, I've got the blinking battery symbol when I switch on my K100D. I've tried switching to manual focus and leaving for a while with the batteries out, but still the same issue. It works ok with external power supply, so I uploaded ver 1.02 firmware to see if that would solve the issue but still the same fault. Is there anything else you can suggest I try? Thanks, Brian
