Having problems with your Vivitar ViviCam 8400 Digital Camera ?

My camera doesnt record audio. I record video just fine, but it doesnt play back the auido. :( Also, this is the 3rd vivicam 8400 that I have bought. The other 2 broke when I brought them underwater.


Answers :

The 8400 is designed primarily as a still camera, with some video capabilities grafted on. As such it captures images not sounds. You can add a soundtrack using video-editing software on a computer but you cannot record one on this camera.
Sorry if that wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but that's the way it is.

Have just inherited this digital camcorder. Want to record video onto card rather than tape so bought a new card today. Tried to use for the first time but on pressing the record button I get a red 10 second countdown on the screen and then it beeps and the recording stops. Am able to play back the 10 seconds of footage ok but can't get it to record for any longer. Have gone through the instruction booklet with a fine tooth come and probably missing something really simple - but want to use

Sorry to bother and hope this is free of charge. My name is John Gong and I bought this camera from staples to record videos for my youtube channel. Apparently I chose this camera but they had none in stock but the sample. I bought the sample since it seemed to be in good condition. I was wrong, when I bought the camera and started "trying" to charge it it did not work. I realized the camera's slot for the charger to go in seems to be bit slant and a little wide. I'm pretty sure this was because
