The best way to have battery tested is going to a camera shop with repair facility with camera and power adapter, possibly when the repairman is in, and asking, "battery is gone on my camera, I am not sure if have to buy battery or power adapter", have them both quickly tested, and buy the faulty replacement part.

Just boight my vivtar 850w underwater video camera 2 wks ago . now it shows a CAPITAL F on screen in shape of SD card ? why ? not working ? who do i send this back to ?


I don't know this camera but it could be for 'full' or 'fail' so suggest you try a different memory card, or format from the menu to see if it helps. If not then you could contact the seller to ask for a refund or replacement

Hi I,have a Vivitar DVR550,and need a new recharger for it. when I,but when I,put my model in the vivitar support page it does not have the model number in the list.There is nothing wrong with my camera...


Go here:

http://www.amazon.com/VIVITAR-DVR-545-DVR-550-DVR-550G-CAMCORDER/dp/B002RN6DO0/ref=sr_1_64?ie=UTF8&s=photo&qid=1260903217&sr=1-64

You can read the specs of exactly what type of charger is needed, or just purchase it.

Vivitar DVR 550 was a well known model in the UK. but the company Sakar bought the Vivitar comapany out. However, the Vivitar site still exists, but not much support for the DVR 550 is provided. I would recommend e-amiling them by visiting www.vivitar.com

Good Luck

Unable to view moves from the camera on my TV set.


this could be correct as the signal for the Camera LCD screen is now being sent to what ever device is connected on the TV out cable.
ensure your connection is
Camera - TV out
TV - Video in.
ensure that your TV is set to the correct channel or input setting to view the signal from the camera.

Screen says video management file is broken


Apparently the firmware on the camera is very finicky especially if you do any deleting/renaming of movie files via windows and the USB (rather than using the camera's menu interface). My suggestion (worked for me anyway) connect via USB, explore the JVC HD, find your videos, save them on to your computer (drag and drop, or edit copy, etc) then once you've accomplished that, go into the camera's menu, then settings, find the option to FORMAT HD, do it.

This fixed my dilemma, hope it helps others out there.

DXG-506V LCD comes on Blank White Screen


I had the same problem ...I bought a new 2 GB SD card put it in the camera and it worked fine.

It may have had something to do with formatting ..I tried to format the other card wiyh my computer when the video camera would stay on.
I tried to reset the camera that didn't work either.
The new SD Card did work.
