Question about Vivitar V3800N Zoom 35mm SLR Camera
I tried to change speed settings but the problem is still there. I figure if i bought another lens maybe the issue would go away but i really just want to find a way to fix this without buying anything unless if its something i can afford under 20 bucks. i notice there's a lever on the back of the lens i move it and it seem to move o.k ,and when i look through it at the same time moving the lever i notice the aperture also move when its at f/3.5. When i attach the lens to the camera at the same time i look through it again and saw the movement of the aperture (before attach the lens i made sure the red dot from the camera body was line up with lens's red dot). I also took shots without the lens and the mirror inside the camera moves fine. But when you take a shot with the lens attached the mirror stays up until you remove the lens. this is a manual camera no batteries are involve except for the indicator which uses a LR44. PLEASE HELP ME
Its really a Vivitar v4000 zoom 35mm SLR Camera but the website wont take the product name as valid
It seems that the lens is restricting the operation of the camera mechanism a possible cause may be the lens actuating mechanism is stiff from being underused, from you description the manual setting for your lens is ok but when attached to the camera the pin on the lens which is activated by a bar situated in the camera at the bottom of the lens mount cannot be pushed fully home. Try pushing the pin on the end of the lens to see if it is being restricted and if so may need cleaning or just a few operations to free it off.
