L310 shuts off when taking pic


As soon as the camera senses the battery does not have enough power, to save a picture you take, it will shut itself down, preventing a memory error. Because if the voltage is to low, no reliable access to the memory is possible. Be aware that in extreme warm or extreme cold the battery can't produce enough power.
Your camera will work with AA batteries.
Always be sure the batteries are charged.
Insert the batteries correct plus to plus and minus to minus. Only one battery the wrong way around and the camera won't work.Check contacts of the batteries and in the battery compartment of your camera. Dirty or oxidised contacts can be cleaned with a dry cloth. Never use sharp tools to clean contacts or anything in or on your camera.
Always charge the batteries before using it for the first time, or if you have not used it for a long period. 3 months is a very long period.
Also check if the battery door is closed correct. Most cameras do have a switch connected to the battery door. If the switch does not work correct, it could be you can't switch on your camera.
Do not use alkaline batteries unless it is absolutely necessary. In some cases, alkaline batteries may have a shorter service life than NiMH. Alkaline battery performance is limited, especially at low temperatures. The use of NiMH batteries is recommended.
Never use manganese (Zinc-Carbon) batteries in your camera. They can't deliver enough power and can start leaking, causing damage to your camera.
Always charge the batteries together, so they have the same charge.
Never use different kind of batteries together. The best is a set not only of the same brand and capacity, but also form the same batch.
Only one poor cell can spoil al the fun, because the total voltage is quick on a critical limit, shutting the camera down.

My Vivitar Vivicam 5399 is refusing to turn on. It has worked perfectly up until a couple of weeks ago, when it started to turn off at random moments, usually soon after I had turned it on. Now, it doesn't...


Have you tried to see if the battery door is completely shut? This is usually the problem with many digital cameras with batteries. Clean the battery door and where the battery touches the metal of the door. Check to see if the door is completely flush with the camera body when you close it. I know for a fact that Vivitar cameras **** the juice out of batteries fairly quickly also. If you have the USB-cord provided with the camera, plug it into your computer and see if that holds a charge to your camera. If all else fails, call up Vivitar for further inquiry, your battery may be dead.
Good luck!

Hi, my battery in the D60 is stuck in the camera. I can't remove it


I cant see how that can be possible unless the battery has swollen due to heat.
Make sure any latches are held open and tap base of camera onto your hand (over a mat on the table in case battery falls out). Also try to attach sticky tape to side of battery (if enough space to slide some in) and pull on it.
It seems VERY unlikely that it is stuck, are you sure you didn't miss a latch?
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
I appreciate your vote if you appreciate my reply.

My focus lens is stuck in the open/out position. i cannot take photos, the screen says unable to focus. help!


It sounds as though the battery is low and the camera is faulting and has become "stuck" because of it.

I would suggest you try this first to see if it is.

Turn the camera off, take out the batteries and then re-insert with new ones or charge the old ones before you re-insert them. Make sure the batteries are fully charged.

This "should" jumpstart the camera back to the original configuration.

If this doesn't work please post back.

Hope that helps!

Power button will not work - it did not pop up when depressed. I removed battery and card and re-inserted but button is still stuck. Any suggestions?


Found out that if battery needs charging, camera will not turn on at all. I guess I had a senior moment. Button was not stuck just no power to turn on camera. After charging battery everything is fine.

CAMERA WILL NOT TURN ON


Had the same problem. Open battery/memory card compartment and identify the protruding piece on the inside of the door which when the door is closed appears to make contact with a switch. I solved my problem by using a very soft pointed object and very very gently pushing down on the switch. Replace the battery & memory card and switch the camera on as normal. It worked for me which would suggest that maybe sometimes the switch can become stuck or the protruding part on the door does not make proper contact. Hope this works for you.

No power


I also had this problem - and by accident I found that the battery just wasn't pressed down enough onto the contacts when the door was shut.  I now use a little bit of cardboard on top of the battery - then I close the door - now it works fine

Charger red lite flashing. Camera comes on for one second and shuts off


Hello,
Here's a copy from the owners manual:
■ Charging LED 
Red LED is on = Being charged 
Red LED is blinking = Charging error 
Green LED is on = Carging is complete


● If the charge indicator blinks as red, it indicates a battery charging error.
- The battery is not properly inserted
- The terminals of battery are dirty or damaged
If the battery is inserted properly and the charge indicator continues to blink, contact the
nearest Samsung Camera Service Center.


Another charging error is when the batteries are so depleted, they won't charge up to 100% anymore = red light doesn't go out and remains on for too long, means get a new battery.
