Having problems with your Vivitar ViviCam 5386 Digital Camera ?

I turned my camera on and I can't take or deleate any pics, it says my cared is locked. What does this mean?



Answers :

Take the memory card out of your camera and look at it. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

If that doesn't work, try another card.

Photos delete if i turn the camera off . I turn it on, and it says "26" on the screen, meaning i can take 26 pics. i'll take maybe 4 and turn it off. If i turn it on again, it will read "26" again and sure enough, when i connect it to the pc no pictures are detected. The only time i can upload pics from the camera is if I take the pics and connect it to the pc asap without turning it off.

Hey. I bought a new camera some days ago with a new Digix 4gb SDHC memory card. I went to Disney World and took normally a lot of pictures. From one moment to another, the camera gives me the message "Memory card error" and won't let me take nor view pictures. I tried removing the memory card and everything. I checked and It isn't locked or something. Also, I tried using a memory card reader on my laptop, and it says I have to format to read the card. I REALLY don't want to lose the pic


The first thing that may be complicating things is, can your laptop read SDHC cards, or just SD cards? If the laptop is asking you to format it, then probably it's working, but be really sure, before you continue.Check the co ... Digital Cameras

Camera will turn on. It will show stored pics, but the screen is black when trying to take pic (tho it has info on it- like how many pics I have left on memory card). If I take a pic, then it's all black. Sometimes it makes funny noises and often it will say "camera has detected an error and is shutting down. Please restart." And then the number 32.
