Having problems with your Vivitar ViviCam 5100 Digital Camera ?

Video doesn't work


\015 When I press the button for video, it records for maybe 2 seconds, sometimes even 4 seconds, then stops. Then I can't turn it off, I have to remove the batteries to turn it off. How do I get the video function to work?\015

Answers :

It did this to me before I got a memory card put into it. you can get and use any SD memory stick at walmart I got 2 sticks of 1GB for $20 there. The place you put the stick in is a slit inside the battery case above the batteries...it took me a long time to find it lol!
