Look for a button that has a lightning bolt symbol on it. I this button is located on the back of the DVR 530. on the on the left side of the back of this camcorder.... once you've found it, press it and something should change on your screen indicating that the flash is on.

Vivitar DVR 508NHD manual is not the same as the 508 manual which everyone keeps listing. The camera isn't set up the same. Where can I find the actual manual for DVR 508NHD - this is so frustrating?


Manuals online say they have them for download but after download it was a DVR 508 HD
Only thing I can suggest is buy another with a manual in the package

How do i get an 8gb sd card to work in my vivitar dvr-530 cam corcoder?


The DVR-530 works with SD cards, which max out at 2GB. Your 8GB card is actually an SDHC, not an SD card. While SDHC cards fits into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work in this camcorder. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

Sorry if that wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but that's the way this camera works.

I received the vivitar dvr 850hd with the 2.4" screen. i can't get the flash or strobe light to work to take pictures or movies when it is dark. is there something special that i need to do to get it...


When in the 'Camera' setting, push the left arrow on the camera to 'Auto' or 'On'. the flash should flash if it is dark enough. also, I don't think you can use the flash when making movies.

Vivitar DVR 545 - Is this going to work with my MacBook?


I have a VIvitar DVR 545 I can not find out how to recharge the rechargable battery



I just bought this camera and had the same problem.

How DO you charge the battery???!!!

Here goes:
Open the box the camera came in and you should find a little rectangualr black box and a 3-pin plug.
Ignore the other stuff unless you think you may need it (depends what country you're in and what your mains supply wall socket fittings are). Take a close look at the little rectangualr black box and you'll see a slot in it. That's where your battery goes! Remember the battery must be taken out of the camera and slotted into this box! Make sure you align the battery correctly to the litle pins inside the box.
The Vivitar DVR 545 uses a sort of mobile phone/cell phone battery.You must take the battery OUT of the camera. Now you have slotted the battery into the box you connect the 3-pin plug to the box and then insert the plug (attached to the box) into your wall mains supply socket. The box will light up and you'll see a red light. Once this light turns green your camera battery is charged!

RE-INSERT THE BATTERY INTO THE CAMERA.

The whole charging procedure for the DVR 545 is ridiculous but there it is! By the way one drawback about having to remove the battery from the camera to charge it is that you will lose all or most of your camera settings. remember to reset video and photo settings - resolution, flash etc., etc.

Also a word of caution:
The Vivitar DVR 550 is unusual in that the battery is charged using the USB port. If you also happen to have a DVR 550 do NOT attempt to charge the Vivitar 545 using the Vivitar DVR 550 USB charger cable!

You will destroy your DVR 545 in seconds!!!!

Why Wont My Webcam Work On My Vivitar dvr 530 Cam ?


did you try putting in the software disk and then plugging it in the computer, then from the camera go to web cam and it should install it and work fine.

Hi, For some reason the model 530 and drivers are not available on the Vivitar site. While no drivers, for the moment, you can try a memory card reader since Vivitar uses a memory card to store the images. Memory card readers do not need installers but treated as drives of the PC. Hope this be some help/idea. Post back how things are or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.
