Having problems with your Vivitar ViviCam 5385 Digital Camera ?

Digital Camera Troubles


\015 I have a Vivitar Vivicam 5385 and after carrying it around with me all day, it suddenly stopped working. Whenever I try to turn it on it says "LENS ERROR" on the display and turns back off. I was wondering if there is anyway I can fix this (cheaply or without money) because I spent about $150 on it about 6 months ago and I don't have the money to buy a new one for a very long time. There doesn't appear to be any physical damage to the camera, so I'm clueless as to why it happened.\015\012\015\012Thanks for the help!!!!\015\012\015\012Walter :P\015

Not really a solution-- See what "bmw" commented on\015\012ie: the repair economics and the eBay solution (spares/repairs) I live in the u.k. and there is a eBay store supported by Vivitar (http://stores.ebay.co.uk/LMB-Direct_Digital-Cameras_W0QQcolZ4QQdirZ1QQfsubZ6660219QQftidZ2QQsclZ8QQtZkm )the prices seem attractive. there may be something like this in the States.

My camera won't stay on. It turns on and lens goes out and adjusts and then retracts in and camera turns off. I am in the process of taking it apart to figure it out but unless it is a problem of the screws needing to be tightened I don't know what to do next. Can you help me or refer me. I bought this camera used and really like it and want to keep it if I can. I have had so much trouble keeping digital cameras working. Thanks


The problem you are facing is most likely to be lens related. Perhaps it is not able to extend fully and hence retracing and turning off. The cause may be a mechanical obstruction. However before we try anything else, remove the battery hold for 1 mi ... Pentax Optio E30 Digital Camera

Last year, my friend & I both bought factory-reconditioned Polaroid 7.0MP digital cameras i737, supplied in original boxes, with all necessary bits. Both of us got 'Replace battery' messages, and cameras stopped working; we both gave up. A while ago, my grandson "poked around", had no trouble taking pictures, but got The Message. I've been trying again. Using Uniross NiMH batteries, 2700mAh, previously used only a little, newly recharged. Menu indicates that the camera knows that's what it's
