Hi, Vivitar 4100 will not power up. Green LED flash a couple times, screen flickers, then the LED goes out. It will not connect to my PC either. Have tried 4 sets of new batteries, no luck. Its only 2 months old ! Please help ! Thanks.

    My camera is about a year old and just began doing this exact thing. However, I noticed it only started after I uploaded all the photos to my computer and deleted everything on the camera, leaving it empty. Still, why would this make a difference.

Monitor flashes image for split second then goes blank but green LED flashes as well

while the monitor is still powered on, but with the LED flashing, unplug the monitor from the PC. press the power button, and the monitor should go off, now plug the pc back into the monitor. Turn the monitor back on and it should work.

Occasionally this will not work for me, but if I repeat it it normally works

Hope this helps - my problem is intermitant so it may be different to what u guys have
