Vivitar 5340s 'Card Error Message'

My Vivicam isn't even a year old, then just the other day when turned on, it seemed if it took a while to load while coming on. Then the screen is shows what's in front of the lens and you can't take a picture, then the screen goes black and it beeps and flashes 'Card Error' I've taken the SD Memory Card out time after time and it keeps doing the same thing over and over. I then (to test if card faulty) inserted another card from my mp3 player and it gave the same error message. Is there anything I can do to fix the promblem, somewhere I can take the camera to for specific technical help? Please someone help me with this.

Re: Vivitar 5340s 'Card Error Message'

The only solution I have found is that, this camera you have can only hold up to 512 MB of memory. So if you bought something higher then, you got to return the card. Same problem with me, luckily I still have the reciept.

I just inserted 4GB Memory card and took only one picture. I keep getting error message "Memory card is full, insert a SD Memory Card to Transfer and take more photos".

Is the manual, and you need to refer to pages 6 and 7.

If you still have problems, you should contact Vivitar support. This should not be a problem since the camera automatically switches to the SD card when inserted.

You can't charge the camera with the USB cord because the camera dosn't have a charger built inside. You need to use an external charger. Here is a link showing several sites that have battery chargers for this camera.

Linking my canera to the TV to view the pic's

Playing Back images/Video Clips on TV You can also playback your images on a TV screen. Before connecting to any device, make sure to select NTSC/PAL system to match the video output system of the video equipment you are going to connect to Vivicam 5340s, then turn all connected devices off. 1. Position Vivicam 5340s on the cradle. 2. Match the docking connectors and carefully insert Vivicam 5340s until it fits in place. 3. Connect one end of the A/V cable to the A/V terminal of the cradle. 4. Connect the other end to the A/V input socket of the TV set. 5. Turn the TV and Vivicam 5340s on. 6. Playback the still images/video clips. The method of operation is the same as playing back still images and video clips on Vivicam 5340s. I hope this helps:)
