    Yes! I have this same issue. I have tried a wall charging USB charger as well as my computer USB cord. The red light comes on but the battery doesn't take on a charge.

    Can I operate my Vivitar 7300X by putting it on a table with the display screen closed? When the display is open the recorder won't stay straight on the desk.

This camera not charged via PC, you can charge the battery only with wall charger(comes with box).When camera is plugged to PC, you can´t use it as a camera, only as a memory card.You can watch your stuff in PC( PC recognise a camera as a flash memory, no more).

So, this is normal..Charge your camera with wall charger(Full charge Red light not flash!, if light flashed camera is charging) Unplug and use as usually!

Can i charge my vivitar 850hd by plugging it in?

Yes. The 850W charges the battery via the USB port. You can charge it by connecting it either to a powered USB port on a computer or a wall outlet by using the supplied adapter (or equivalent).

Hi, my vivitar 550 wont turn on, ive had it on charge and just a red light shows, can you help

Hi, My guess is that the battery is no good any more. It will not take a charge any more. Replace the battery with a new one. Good luck.

Most likely your Vivitar needs a new battery....if you've lost your a/c adapter-you can use a standard USB cable to charge your camera. Plug the smaller end into your Vivitar & the larger end into your turned on PC/laptop & it'll charge the battery.

How do you recharge camera battery? camera manual is not clear abot how to hook up battery charger or even where it is!

The easiest way is by using a standard USB cable...plug the small end of the USB cable into your camera (located under the headphone jack) then plug the larger end of the USB cable into your PC or laptop. Turn on your computer & this will charge up your Vivitar 550.

After charging my Vivitar DVR 840XHD it won't turn on.

Possible Solution for this problem. The battery might not be making contact with the terminals in the camera case. Open the battery door of the camera. There is a small spring "tab" on the other side of the battery door. Bend this "UP" a little, close the door and try it again. You may have to bend it up some more it it didn't work. By bending this tab up, you are forcing the battery UP to make better contact with the terminals.

How do you charge the Vivitar DVR 550

I just bought this camera used on Ebay and the seller told me it charges via the USB cable. He forgot to ship that to me, though, so I don't know yet if that is true or not.
