This is a Manufacturing problem. A lot of Vivitar cameras have this problem as well as many others that are usually not the consumers fault. Just a glitch in the technology.

This is there website: www.vivitar.com It is best to see if you can find the number for technical support. To see if they can give you a refund or replace it for you. I hope this helps. -Richard

PV-DC152D CAMCORDER, LCD Display only works if it is pulled out, turned 180 degrees and pushed back into place so the display is facing you. If you move the LCD display over 3/4" away from camcorder it will go black again. Personally, I think this is an issue with some sensors that gauge when to turn on the LCD display "ON" and Viewfinder "OFF" and vice-versa. Any help on this would be appreciated since there is nothing else wrong with the camcorder.


The most likely problem is a cracked ribbon cable that goes between the camera and the display. The cable needs to be replaced. Typical cost for this is around $40 or so plus labor. I would not suggest that you attempt this repair yourself as open ... Panasonic Digital Cameras

With our Canon DC50 camcorder we made a movie of a video presentation on an old MacSE. The movie's images are excellent, but half-inch translucent gray bars repeatedly roll down the screen when we display the DVD movie of the video presentation on a PC or TV. When we made the movie with another camcorder (a Sony Handycam DCR-TRW260) the same problem was encountered, but when we switched off the image stabilizer on that camcorder, the rolling gray bar failed to appear. (The gray bar was replac

When reconnecting my Sony ccd-f375e camcorder using the mains adaptor it initially worked. However when I switched of and on again it has failed to work. The light on the mains adaptor is on which suggests that power is going thru. I have tried to cleaning the terminals on the adaptors connectors to the camera but this also failed. Any thoughts?

Erratic shutdown of Panasonic ag dvc7 camcorder due to dew sensor malfunction. Have tried the obvious solution with hair dryer. Can periodically resolve by removing/replacing battery or by smacking the case. Makes me think it is a loose connection, but have no idea where to look for connection. Any way to disable this dew sensor or repair without sending back to factory?


Based on vibration (smacking the case) sometimes resolving, it seems like you're on track with the problem being a loose wire or solder connection. Other than going in and fixing that, there isn't much that can be done. There's no setpoint or menu ... Digital Cameras
