Having problems with your Vivitar ViviCam 8600s Digital Camera ?

Today I purchased a Vivitar 8690 and received as a gift a 5018. Which, please, is the better of the two? Thanks


Answers :

IMHO, the ViviCam 8690 is the better camera. It has 8.1 Megapixels (5.1 on the 5018), larger preview screen. The 5.1 has 8x digital zoom and the 8690 only has 4x. Everything else pretty much compares.

I charged it for 2 hours and I got the same message. has anyone had this type of thing happen? Could it be the battery or am I using the wrong battery type. Please advise. Thanks

Internal Memory?? Hello, I just received an E-500 as a gift and would like to know if you must use a memory card with it.  My previous camera was a Kodak and you could either use the internal memory or a card. Which card do you all suggest i purchase? Is there one that is better than the other?

Received a Kodak Z1285 for my birthday in February of 2009. Approximately a month ago the camera would not "turn on". I tried several different batteries including purchasing new batteries but nothing worked. I spoke with the sales department @ Walmart in Plano TX because this is where the camera was purchased as a gift. Walmart says I have to contact Kodak which is fine.

I have an older Vivitar Camera Model ViviCam 6385U. I tried two different memory cards and neither one seems to work. The first Memory Card I purchased was a newer HD card which I realized was the problem. I then went and purchased an older 2GB SD made by PNY. This card goes through the initialization process but no pictures are written to the card.

I have just purchased a KWorld DVD Maker 2 and set it up as per instructions and the DVD Maker itself says by pushing the button it will start flashing blue, well this does not happen and it gets very hot. I have the bigger usb end plugged into computor while my Sony video camera has only two female outlets 1 yellow the other black so I insert two cables with male adaptors to install. Where do the other leads go to or are they for other appliance uses. Please advise as I am getting frustrated


The 1 yellow and 1 black female outlets are likely for RCA Phono jacks and older VCR connections. DVD Maker sounds like you would use a camera that has USB cable to the computer and the computer writes DVDs using the Kworld DVD Maker 2.\015\012 ... Digital Cameras

I have a Panasonic VDR-M50 camcorder. I was attempting to finalize several DVD-R discs and received two different error codes : 0901 and 0280. After receiving the codes, the camcorder locked up and refuses to even correctly access the disks now. I really don't want to lose this data, and Panasonic technical support wants me to send in the camera. However, the camera successfully finalized other discs in between the ones with errors and also still properly records on a new disc. Please help!

I am using the vivitar vpt 2400 tripod with my "guerilla" paint box [9"x12"x6" deep & @ 10#] the box has a metal universal plate receiver for the bolt on the plastic quick release head [QRPER] I work on a painting on the back of the opened box which is attached to the tripod The stress /racking sheered two of the four plastic "teeth" off of the QRPER head I need a metal version on the head, I think...is there one? What do you recommend?


Hi,\015\012\015\012Looking at the type of work you do , I would recomend for a metal version as the plastic would keep sheering the teeth. Yes the weight would increase by triffle and may be anoying while travelling but its worth it. ... Digital Cameras

Hi, I've had my Nikon D40x now for about two months, brand new etc. I was sat by the pool today and someone dived in, sending a few splashes onto me and the camera, hardly enough to damage it at all, and i dried it straight away. But still, i tried to turn the camera on and it would not, no sign of life or anything. So i put it into the hot water cupboard overnight, and still nothing?? Could anyone suggest anything, please?? :S Thanks, Laurie.

Hi, Is it possible to receive instructions for your Vivitar 5385 digital camera.
