Are you still using alkaline batteries? If so, alkaline batteries just don't have the power for more than a few pics in a digital camera. Some may have reached their shelf life, and though brand new, may even have problems just powering startup of the camera. Digital cameras for the most part should only be used with rechargeable NiMH batteries. Retailers sell these for around $7 for a package of four (about $15-19 for the batteries with charger). Keep in mind they'll save you big bucks in the long run over alkalines, AND they'll last for at least 100 pictures per charge (and probably many many more). You'll be very pleased with their performance, and may slap yourself for not buying them sooner. When at the store, look on the package for a power rating of at least 2500 mah.

I couldn't take anymore pictures because "the memory card was full." I downloaded the pictures and the card is now empty. Now when I turn the camera on, the green light is on but there is no image on the...


Go into the menu and find "reset"...follow the on-screen instructions. Remove the card and battery...press all the buttons...leave it alone for 20 minutes...insert the card and then the battery...turn it on. If it now works, with the card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format" and follow the instructions to erase the card and optimize it.

How do you turn the flash on? (with the vivitar vivicam 8018)


Your camera has a built in flash function which enables you to take photos when the light condition is not good.

1. Press the Up button. (for reference of buttons, please see the below figure mentioned)
2. Press the Up button once until you see the icon appear on the LCD screen. This indicates that the flash is forced on.
3. Press the Up button again to change to the auto flash function.
4. The icon will appear at the top of the LCD indicating that the auto flash is turned on and ready to use.
5. Press the Up button again to change from the auto flash to the red eye function.
6. The icon will appear on the LCD indicating that the red eye reduction function has been activated.
7. To turn off the flash function, press the Up button again until the icon is displayed on the LCD.

Note: A “Low Power” message will appear on the LCD screen, if you select the flash function when the battery power is insufficient. To continue using the camera with the flash, please change new batteries

Monitor stays black


You may have accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the LCD screen on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To try turning the screen back on, press the DISP button once.

Display screen is black


I've been told it's the LCD Screen. I have a new LCD screen but now can not find any instructions to change it out. It is not in the manual. I wish I could help. And this sight appears to be complete useless.

First, make sure the batteries are fresh and installed correctly. Turn on the camera, if you get an opening screen, your camera should be OK. Press the menu button and navigate to screen options where you should be able to turn on the screen to take pictures.

If there is no opening screen when you turn on the camera (and you are sure the batteries are good and in properly), then try to take some pictures without the screen. If the camera takes good pictures, then the screen is dead. You can continu to take pictures with it in this condition. I do not think they are worth fixing, though.

If the camera does not take good pictures or no pictures then the camera has failed or dead. Your best solution is to replace the camera with a newer, better one, More pixels, greater optical zoom, quicker start time and so on.

Camera will turn on and then turn off, while screen continuously flashes


I have had this problem with both a DSC-P72 and a DSC-P92 (same camera but 5 Mega pixel1.gif) They do need real good batteries, when the camera shut’s down I can run MP31.gif players or flashlights with those batteries for quit a while before those devices are dead.

I was traveling overseas once and installed “fresh” carbon batteries and the camera wouldn’t work at all. I had no photos on that trip until I found some alkaline batteries.

I even have bought 2 “dead” cameras1.gif to find that they work fine with REALLY GOOD batteries. So try it again before dumping the camera.
