Vivicam 5385 my camera uses up 2 batteries in a matter of minutes

    My camer seems to eat batteries, especially rechargebale ones. Can anyone recommend a specific make of battery that last a little longer. Great camera, except for night shots but am wary of taking this on holiday because of the unrealiablity of the batteries.

    No sort of battery seems to fix this problem - rechargable / Power hi tech, normal long life - all go flat ludicrously fast. In fact the battery meter shows half empty as soon as you piuit them in and switch it on.

This means that you are using the wrong type of battery. You have to purchase a battery specifically designed for Digital cameras. Also i would suggest you use rechargeable batteries.

How do I change the date on my ViviCam 5385 digital camera?


Assuming the camera is working, with the camera off, rotate the mode dial so that the icon with the wrench lines up as the active mode. Then press the Power button and turn on the camera. Press the right arrow to select Custom Menu. Then press the down arrow to select Date and Time. Then press the OK button. Use the left and right arrows to select a part of the date to change and use the up arrow to increase the value and slide the zoom lever to down button to decrease the value.Press the OK button when the date and time (24 hour clock) is properly set.

The manual for the 5385 is available at retrevo: http://www.retrevo.com/support/Vivitar-5385-Digital-Cameras-manual/id/200bh836/t/2/ . You'll need to enter a code to access the PDF.

I hope this helps.

Hi, Is it possible to receive instructions for your Vivitar 5385 digital camera. One of my friends gave me the camera because she purchased a new one, but did not have the "how ot operate" booklet that...


You don't really need an operation manual to operate that camera... many of the operation manuals are just useless. You need to learn by trial and error. you are not going to loose anything or damage the camera..

How do I turn on the sound? The vivitar vivicam 5385 camera records to video but I cannot hear any sound. Is there somewhere it is turned on or off?


The ViviCam 5385 does not record sound to go with its videos. You can add a soundtrack using video-editing software on a computer, but you cannot record one on the camera.

I know this wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but there it is.

Sorry, but the ViviCam 5385 does not record any sound when in video mode. You can add a soundtrack using video-editing software on a computer, but you cannot record one on the camera.
