Having problems with your Vivitar ViviCam-X30 Digital Camera ?

When I plug in the usb lead to download the pics, the camera screen goes black as if off, i unplug the usb lead and the camera resumes normal function, do i need a new usb lead or is the problem something else.

Consider NOT using the USB connection.\012\012\012

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

I have a Canon Digital Rebel XT camera using a 75-300mm telephoto lens. My problem with the lens is that at times it is hard to adjust the focus either manually or automatically with the camera. I hear something rattling around inside the lens and at times the lens will not auto-focus and I have to remove the lens and manually twist it to get it back to some normal operation. Is this fixable or do I need a new lens?


It sounds like the lens has been dropped or knocked and is misaligned in the guides.Repair against new lewns is a difficult one as prices vary. I would perhaps consider replacing it with a used one. Before you do borrow a similar lens from some ... Canon Digital Cameras

I can't transfer my pics from lumix lx3 to pc. When I first connect camera to pc via usb cable, a new drive pops up and I can initially see my pics. Then things lock up and my pc tells me that it can't read from the drive and my camera won't turn off (unless I remove battery). Is this a common problem? The camera and sandisk sdhc 4gb are brand new. I'd rather not need depend on a card reader. Any help?

Damaged Camcorder The camera on my Hitachi DZ-MV780A DVD Camcorder quit working. All the other functions work, but I can't get a picture through the viewfinder, or on the LCD panel.

Nikon D50, digital SLR, I was using my camera at a wedding and the flash just stopped working. The camera thinks the flash is going off - it pops up and takes them quickly but no light goes off.... do these cameras have traditional 'bulbs' could it be as simple as the bulb has blown and it needs a new one? or am i looking at something bigger than that?

My Canon PowerShot A85 hasn't been used much. Every now and then - when I switch the camera on - I just just get purplish mess on the screen. It's not the screen itself that doesn't seem to function (the review mode with taken pictures does work). The CCD seems to be malfunctioning. But then, after a while and while, the camera just decides to act normally again. Could it be I need new firmware? If so, how and where can I download that? Thank you for your attention. Frank.


This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager, and is a known defect for your particular model camera.. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free if you live in the US, Canada, and a select few other countries. If you live outside the US, ... Canon PowerShot A85 Digital Camera
