Having problems with your Vivitar ViviCam 8018 Digital Camera ?

When i turn mine on it says sensor fail....what does that mean


Answers :

Because the sensor has failed...

Unfortunately on a low price camera such as yours (£35),\015\012the only way it's worth repairing is if it's still under warranty. Even\015\012then, the manufacturer will often throw it in the bin and send you\015\012another.

If it's not under warranty then chuck it away as there\015\012is nothing you can do to fix a failed imaging sensor, but if you do buy\015\012the same model again you will at least have a spare battery and memory\015\012card for it if you keep them from the broken camera.

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.
