Having problems with your Vivitar ViviCam 8025 Digital Camera ?
Why does the flash automaticly go off how can i get it to stay on
This is a "flash" in the truest sense of the word, you cannot make it stay on. When the flash is charging that is happing is that a circuit in the camera is taking voltage from the battery and turning it into a much higher voltage that is then discharged when the flash goes off. You may noticed that it takes longer to charge the flash as the better is getting weaker, that is because the battery have less current to provide the charging circuit.
I think you are thinking that is can be used as a light (maybe for video mode) but this is not available in the vast majority of digital cameras.

I have a Panasonic DMC-TZ1 that I can't get the flash to go off on. The only flash setting that works on my camera is no flash setting and the icon for the no flash symbol appears white. The rest of the settings such as automatic flash with red-eye, and automatic flash, ect... are red. Is this a settings issues or a repair issue? If it is a repair issue could you tell me what on the camera needs to be repaired. Weather it be the LED light is broken or a resistor or transistor on the circuit

I am having problems with the flash working on my camera. It does not seem to matter if it is in automatic or manual modes. When I take a picture in either mode, when a flash is needed, the flash icon just blinks on the display. The camera will not take any photo when this is happening. The only way I can get my camera to take a photo is manually set the flash to off. Why is this happening?

Flash I used to be able to switch the flash settings on the camera, when it's on 'auto adjustment', from on to off or automatic but now its just stuck on off and it doesn't allow me to change the settings. The only choice I have is to attempt using the 'twilight portrait' but I don't get the same effect.

Horizontal lines OK, we fixed the black screen and black pictures, but I'm still getting a strong pattern of horizontal lines in my pics. Pictures shot with manual setting adjustments are better than those on automatic, and the lines don't show too much with a strong flash (but if the flash is too strong then the image is washed out). Is this fixable? Or is my camera dying? ~Ange

I have a Vivitar 8018 camera. Will the camera automatically use a flash if it is necessary or do I have to do something to get it to flash?
Yes and no. The camera will use the flash if it thinks it's necessary. Unfortunately, what the camera thinks and what you think may not be the same. Often indoors, you won't be allowed to use flash, or you may get better results without flash, so you ... Vivitar ViviCam 8018 Digital Camera

When i turn my camera on, it seems fine, all buttons functional. When i take a photo, it flashes, but no photo will pop up in my screen. Instead the screen stays black, and then the battery starts to get really warm. then i cant turn it on or off, the only way to get the batter to stop heating up, is to take it out of the camera. i can put the battery back in, turn it on again, but it will say no pictures had been taken, and the problem continues every time i try and use it.
