Having problems with your Vivitar ViviCam 3915 Digital Camera ?

Have a Vivitar v335 older model camera, think maybe early 80s. It's not digital, and need a battery. Several "experts" have told me a Duracell 28L is what I need but batter is too long. Battery compartment is shallow, but can't fine anyone who can help. Maybe you? Thanx


Answers :

I happen to have one also. I bought it in the mid 80s. I still have the original box and instruction manual. It says: "Holding the Battery Compartment COVER in your hand, drop in and stack two LR44 or SR44 batteries so that the plus (+) signs are facing up. Replace the Cover. The positive (+) side of the batteries should face the (+) contact at the bottom of the battery COMPARTMENT. Turn the Cover clockwise with a coin until it stops flush with the bottom plate of the camera. DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN".

I dropped my camera Friday on concrete floor. Message reads "Lens error restart your camera" and battery compartment door chipped and will not stay closed tightly. Can I repair myself with parts or do I need to mail in for repair? If mail in, how long will it take to get it back? I use it weekly in my real estate business.

Battery problem This morning I turned on my brand new Nikon Coolpix 5400 and got nothing on the screen. pushed some buttons and still nothing. Went to turn it off and it won't. The lens stays extended and the power light is still on. I don't know if maybe the batteries are so low they can't do anything, but I was under the impression that the camera had an indicator for the batteries really needing to be recharged. The low battery light was on last night, but I haven't seen need to be recharged


Some of these cameras go from "low" to "no" very quickly. The electronics are more sensitive to available voltage than the mechanicals and it doesn't take full voltage to keep an led lit or to retract the lens. But the cpu shuts down. I would have ex ... Nikon Coolpix 5400 Digital Camera

My camera (DSC-T70) got wet (shame on me). When I first turned it on, it worked fine but then it threw an error that said my battery wasn't capatible. I thought maybe I fried the battery so I bought a cheap generic one and it still threw the same error. I then thought maybe I needed to use an original Sony battery. I tried one of them and it still isn't working. It will come on for a second and the screen will show but then it throws the error and turns off. Is my camera toast??..:-(


IT'S FIXED!!!..:-) I'm not sure exactly what did it but I tried a little of everything. I tried taking the battery out while holding the power button then I tried taking a picture in that brief moment before the error would appear. I would get it to ... Sony DSC-T70 Digital Camera

I have had my camera for about 4-5 years now and my battery wouldnt hold a charge for the past several months then it got to the point where it wouldnt turn on at all, so I assumed I just needed a new battery.

I attached the charger and charged it overnight thinking maybe it needed an initial charge.....still nothing. I tried the other battery incase the 1st one was bad and still....nothing. I reall

EasyShare Z712IS Purchased this camera in Aug. I love it but I can't seem to keep a charged battery in it. I bought some 2X rechargeable NI-MH batteries. Maybe they are not the right ones for the camera. Since the battery that came with the camera went dead I have tried these and they only last for about 6 - 10 pictures before needing recharging.

I have had an Exilim EX-Z75 for just over a year. Suddenly I'm having trouble charging the battery. No matter how long I leave it on charge the light keeps flashing and the battery is not charged. Do I need a new battery? I don't use the camera very often but I thought the battery would work for longer. Is there a solution to this? I'm experiencing it too :(

I got a wet towel and got all of the milk I could get out but it was in the battery compartment and everything. Put the battery back in and tried

Battery charger Hi all - dumb question maybe...I just purchased a second-hand Coolpix 5400 from a camera shop, with accessories but without the original box or power cord for the MH-53 battery charger. I am trying to get the battery charger to work, but to no avail. I already had a couple of figure-of-eight power cords, so I tried to use those with the charger. But the charger appears dead, the charge light is not lighting up with either of them. Do I need a proprietary or a specially-rate

My T1 is experiencing power problems. I have several batteries and when the camera is plugged in it shows the charge light but the batteries just dont seem to hold power for very long. It seems unlikey that all the batteries have died at once so maybe the camera is discharging them or it is not charging them properly?
