Used Vivitar 70-200 zoom on my K200 Pentax. Nothing but aggravation since. Right now the 18-55 lens it came with is on but shutter button is stuck in down position and my flash wont pop up using the manual "up" button. When I look thru lens and push button, flashing "F" is the only thing there. Removed lens and button would move enough to "click" but would not come up. Put lens back on and nothing! Newbie in the extreme and ready to go back to my MX !!

I have a Pentax K 100 D. I have tried using a Flash Memory card (a Sandisk Ultra 16GB) but without success. The message 'Memory Card Error" is displayed even before I could format it. The card had previously been used to store files from my PC (where it worked perfectly) but the camera could not format it even after I had removed all the files etc by reformatting it in the PC (FAT32). Is there any way I can get to use this flash card in my camera?

Camera dying? It will powerup like normal. But when a CF card (tried different ones)is in the camera and you press the button to take a photo, the screen will either shut off clean or give a flash of scrambled image then shut off and freeze. The only way to reset is to remove the batteries. It is also draining the batteries in the few attempts to power it on. When no card is in there it will stay 'alive' for a bit longer but pressing any button on it and the lense will power down leaving
CCD problem is the likely cause here and once you have another one put in camera should work fine. ... Konica Minolta DiMAGE S414 Digital Camera

How to disassemble the camera? I have unscrewed all the visible screws, but still cannot take off the back cover. It seems to be still fixed near the external flash plug.

I was needing a new flash for my sony a230 camera and I ordered a sony flash from accessorycircuit.com. Anyway to make a long story short, they were out of the flash I wanted and said that they had got the new Vivitar Pro 648 series flash in and that it was really good and would work with my camera. I wanted to read up and find out more before I bought it. I can only find out the tech specs on the vivitar pro648 on the vivitar site and that is the only place I can find out any info at all.

I wish to remove the write protection from my Sony handycam so I can remove files from it via the PC, but so far I haven't found any way this can be done. I cannot access my files on the actual camera as the screen is broken so nothing is visible on it when I turn on the camera. Is there any way I can remove the write protection without having access to the buttons on the camera?

I have a canon rebel xti with an 18 to 55 lens .. I recently bought an external flash to sit in the hot shoe .. now when I removed the flash from the hot shoe .. the cameras own flash will not pop up and work... I can manually pop the flash but it still will not work.. I thought that when I bought the flash at the camera store the sales person turned off something on the camera for the new flash to work.. is there something I need to change in the menus to get the cameras own flash to work.....

Hello, I have a Cannon IXUS 95 IS. I accidentally removed some very important photos recently and I was wondering if there is any way to recover them. I am desperate to find a way to do this as they are very unique and sentimental photos. The reason I removed them was because I attempted to condense my already full memory card and went into the main menu. There I went to the "format memory card" page and pressed OK. I was unaware that formatting the memory card meant that all of my photos woul
Hello Mitch. You may full well be able to recover the pictures which were "removed" as they will actually still be on the card until you take another picture "over" the old one. That said, take your camera and your memory card to any Staples store ... Digital Cameras

I have a Vivitar Camera that I bought from a Pawn Shop. The Flash worked fine for the first few months having it. I didn't use it for a while, and once I finally did, I heard 3 pops. After that my flash no longer works. When I switch into Flash mode it blinks and goes back to No Flash mode. Do you think it's the flash tube, the circuit or the battery that charges the flash? I opened the camera and nothing looks blown.
The 8025 is a very cheap camera....I hope you didn't pay more than $15 at the pawn shop. Your camera has a blown flash tube. The camera could have been dropped in water by the previous owner. You could have bought one at Walmart that would have at le ... Vivitar ViviCam 8025 Digital Camera
