The first thing I would do is a reset. Read your manual about this process, which often requires pressing two buttons at the same time or take your batteries out, wait a minute and put them back. See if resetting helps. Not being familiar with your camera, speciffically, Ithis sounds like the firmware in the camera is reading the info back to you backwards when it processes the image (from memory) for you to view. That means it is the firmware in the camera that is defective and sometimes you can update or reinstall that. I would check the manufacturer's site for updates or recalls and if it is under warranty, send it back to be fixed.

How to fix upside down camera


When Taking Pictures With The Camera On My Phone They Are Upside Down, How Do I Fix This?
When taking pictures with the camera on your phone, there is an option to rotate the camera's vantage point. Pressing the up/down buttons on the side of the phone (Some phones differ but in most cases this would be the Up and Down Volume buttons) it will rotate the camera. If your pictures are coming out upside down, press the volume button to reverse the direction and try again.

Cant get my pictures downloaded onto my computer from the card reader


On the front, where the camera lens is, is the door you can open to take out the battery if it will not turn off. Hold the camera upside down, and use your thumbs to force the door to side off - it's not always easy to do. Push from the lens, toward the "Vivitar" name.
I have the same model, and mine just started doing this last month, and I've had it for almost 2 years now. Maybe it's just not recognizing the Off command from the button like it used to. I don't know. But taking the battery out always kills it. Then, put the battery back in (correctly) to use the cam again.

I have a Canon Rebel XT. After taking a picture, the viewer shows the shot upside down and when I down load to my computer they come in all upside or sideways. Just started doing this and I've had


The EOS cameras have some sort of sensor built in to tell the camera which way the shot should be orientated on screen and when they are transferred to the computer.
It sounds like the sensor is jammed or broken and sensing (for some reason) that the camera is upside down when the shot is taken.
If you don't want to pay to have it repaired you can use a program to rotate them or turn of the image rotate option in the menu. I believe this ignores the sensor information.
