Having problems with your Vivitar ViviCam 8025 Digital Camera ?
I have been charging my vivitar vivicam for probably over 24 hours and it still does'nt work.
Try flipping the battery over (unfortunately, the battery will also fit upside down).
Your problem is likely either the charger or a battery that's too worn out to take a charge. A constant red light on the charger indicates that the battery is charging, and a green light indicates that the charge is complete. If the green light never comes on, that's a good indication that the battery is beyond charging. If you have a voltmeter you can check the charger output and the battery voltage. Unfortunately your camera uses a special battery so there's no way to test the charger with another battery or to test the battery in another use. Replacing the battery, especially if it's more than a year old, is your best bet.

BATTERY DOES NOT CHARGE Received a "Vivitar T328" camera yesterday. Inserted the supplied battery and a new memory card into the camera and connected the camera via "USB" cable to the supplied charger. Left the unit plugged in over night. The battery did not charge. This morning plugged the camera into a lap top computer using the supplied "USB" cable. Checked after 5 hours and found that the battery still does not seem to accept the charge. What am I doing wrong?

Is it just the camera??? Help me please!
I'm surprised that you, a photographer who uses a Nikon, would buy a Kodak instead of a Nikon point and shoot. At any rate, the camera is obviously defective and you should take advantage of the warranty. Why, if it stopped in Feb. have you waited ti ... Kodak EasyShare M1093 IS Digital Camera

The batterie charger for my Casio Exilim EX-Z77 has a blinking red light instead of a continous red light when i try charging the batterie. also, it doesnt appear to be charging it at all. Left in in for several hours and it is still empty.
The blinking light indicates a charging error. Try connecting a 9 volt battery to your camera battery. Sometimes if the battery has lost all charge, the charger doesn't recognize it properly. ... Digital Cameras

The battery is charged.. it doesnt even make a noise like its trying to focus. the wiewfinder bracket thingy lights up red but nothing after that.
