Having problems with your Vivitar ViviCam 5018 Digital Camera ?
I can't find my camera charger anywhere!
As my sister's just had her first baby, I appear to be the only one who isn't constantly taking photos!!!
Please can someone advise me where I can get a charger for my Vivita 5018??
Thanks - Nici :o)
The 5018 uses two standard AAA batteries. If you use rechargeable batteries, you must charge them outside the camera using a separate charger. You should be able to buy battery chargers at just about any department, electronics, or office-supply store.
You can also use disposable alkaline or lithium batteries, which you can buy just about anywhere, including drugstores and supermarkets.

I'm not sure if the battery is not charging or the charger is broken because everytime I try to charge it, it charges for seconds at a time and now my camera can only take about 15 pictures even when I try charging it by constantly replacing the battery in the charger to get it to charge for a little bit. I'm not sure what to replace, the battery or the charger or the camera itself.

Canon powershot sd1000 white screen, lens wont open. not dropped, not wet. I put in the battery when the green indicator on the charger comes on, this is what I get. I take the battery out and put it back in the charger minute later, and the red indicator is on, is it possible that the battery isnt holding enough charge, or is it a camera problem? i hate to buy another one if the camera is no good.

Hello, I have a EX-Z8 Exilim Casio camera. The last time the battery ran out I put it in the charger as normal. However instead of having a constant red light, the red light has a continuous flashing. This has no expanation in the handbook but it must be an error as when I take the battery out of the charger and put it into the camera again, the camera will still not switch on. I have not had this camera for long. And there is no other reason why it shouldn't be working. Many thanks, Michell
If the charge lamp flashes red it means the battery is faulty or the battery is loaded in the charger incorrectly. Take the battery out and check if the contacts are dirty - wipe them with a dry cloth and try charging again. If the error continues, y ... Digital Cameras

I'm trying to charge my Canon battery for my Rebel XTI camera. I have a Canon Battery Charger for LC E5. The Battery pack is LP-E5. The battery fits into the charger and a red light comes on. It doesn't flash. It remains constant. I've had it in the charger for 4 hours, and it doesn't turn green. Is the battery fully charged if there's a constant red light and no green light? Thank you.
