Having problems with your Vivitar ViviCam 5299 Digital Camera ?

Cannot get the camera to stay on to take pictures, it keeps shutting off!

Answers :

This is usually a battery problem. If your battery is more than a year old it probably needs to be replaced. Before you do that, though, remove the battery, then clean its contacts and those inside the camera by rubbing them with a clean, dry cloth. After the cleaning, recharge the battery then see if the problem is fixed. If not, replace the battery.

My FE-360 keeps shutting down with the lens stuck out. When you try and turn it on you can hear the lens trying to retract but it stays stuck out and the camera makes a bleeping sound.
