Having problems with your Vivitar ViviCam 5100 Digital Camera ?

Repair I have a Vivitar 5100/4xzoom. The battery door got broken and I sent it in for repair. They sent it back-finally,unrepaired,& said they needed my phone number so they could call me with estimate...why didn't they just send a postcard? I had to ship it back another time,another $8.00. This was in April. I have heard nothing. Today I tried to call the phone number and was told it wasn't issued.


Answers :

I had the same problem and took it into the dealer who firmly taped the battery door shut to get battery contact and told me that a new door would cost more than a new camera. It worked!

I just lpurchased a Canon 5D MarkII. Originally the LSD showed single photos when I reviewed past shots. Then it changed to showing four shots and now it changed to nine shots. The instruction manual on this doesn't get me back showing single shots. That manual is worthless in its explanation. How do I solve this problem? For future reference do you have a phone number I can call to get help when I need it? If you charge for calls so be it. I just need to get familiar with this

Nothing works!!!!!!! I have been having problems with my 5D for some time now. The problems started with a piece of black felt on the sensor, which I noticed when reviewing my pics on the PC. I opend up the camera to check the sensor only to find that there was a piece of felt loose on the shutter. I sent the camera off to Camera Tech in South Africa for repairs. They are to my knowledge the only Canon appointed center in SA. The camera was repaired and sent back with a bill, as the camera was o

The top (monochrome) LCD on our Nikon D80 recently broke. I think that it is actually called the "Control Panel," and displays settings, battery life, number of pictures remaining, etc. Please note that this is not the 2.5" color LCD on the rear of the camera. I know that it is merely the LCD because the backlight works, as does portions of the LCD display itself. Does anyone know of a guide or video to perform this repair? Also, does anyone know the part number? I plan to call Nikon tomor

Horitonzal lines We sent the camera back to canon thinking it had the ccd problem and it would be under warranty for that. They said the repair bill would be $100 and that it wasn't the ccd problem, but they wouldn't tell us what the repair would be for, so we had them send it back to us, unrepaired. Do you have any insight? From all that I read, we do have a ccd issue, but I'm not an expert.

I'm trying to see how much it's going to cost to get my camera repaired and I need the serial number. I can't find the serial number ANYWHERE on my camera and I'm fearing that it might have been on the sticker that was located on the bottom of my camera. That sticker got torn off my camera a while back. Any other way I can figure out the serial number?
