Question about Vivitar ViviCam 8400 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Cannot use the continious numbering of photos.

I have followed the instructions inclufing the formatting of the internal memory and the removeable memory, however every time I remove the photos the camera starts over at IMAG0001. I have used the setting in Set-Up3 Reset Number to No. My version is 1.0011.0V. All other stuff works, but to me this extremely anoying.

As annoying as that certainly is, the camera is actually functioning as designed. The reset number applies when there are still photos on the camera. If you have 10 pics on the camera, then activate the reset feature, then picture #11 will be called IMAG0001, even though it's the 11th picture being taken. With a clean slate and no pictures to start with, the camera only knows to start at 0001, simply by default. Hope this helps.

I'm getting a 'built in memory full' message even though all photos have been deleted off the camera. Why? I can't take photos now and I very much need to.


Good day,

It sound like you need to format the internal memory of you camera.
Here is how to do so:

  1. Make sure all the photos that you want are already stored on your computer.
  2. Remove the SD Card.
  3. In the Setup Menu locate Format. (I think it is third to last in the menu screen if you scroll down)
  4. Select YES and follow the instructions.
  5. The format might take a few minutes.
  6. When the format is completed try and take some photos to see if the error has been fixed.

Please let me know if this information was helpful!

Kind Regards

I have a fujifilm finepix s1600 and it doesn't save my photos anymore. the photos aren't save neither in the internal memory or on a memory card. after i make a photo and press de display button it...


I wish manufacturers would eliminate the internal memory....it causes nothing but problems for us. Try this...with no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory. Then, download any pics from your memory card using a separate card reader if necessary. Then, format the card in the camera. After this, your card should work.

The internal memory is small. Your camera will continue to write to it until you erase the pics from it. Here's how...Remove the memory card. Download any pics you want to save from the internal memory. Go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory. Insert your card. It should work properly now. Promise yourself to never use the internal memory again.

Empty memory claims to be filled


I wish camera makers would stop including internal memory on their cameras. It causes nothing but headaches. Go into your menu and find "format" and follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory. Then, go into the menu and find "reset'...follow the on-screen instructions. Then, insert the card and do the format thing again to erase the card and optimize it. You should be ok now.

Ive got a Samsung Digimax L70 and I have been trying to clear the actual camera's memory. I have uploaded photo's from the SD card but 400 or more photos remain on the camera and I just can't access them...


Wow! You have 400 pics on the internal memory. That must be some huge internal memory. Anyway, to delete them, remove the card from the camera...go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions.

I can't access current photos from memory card, only old photos show up stored in built in memory. Also can not access "copy" from the menu, and nothing will download to my computer. All this worked fine...


"copy" is accessed from the playback menu. If that isn't available, decide if the pics stored in the internal memory are important. If not, format the camera with no memory card inserted to erase the internal memory. If you need those pics, then download them to your computer first...then format. Next, go into the menu and find "reset"..follow the on-screen instructions. Then, purchase an inexpensive card reader and download the pics from your memory card to your computer.(and promise yourself to use the card reader from now on...and remember that after downloading, use the "safely remove hardware" icon in the bottom right of your computer screen...don't just yank out the reader!). Finally, format the card in your camera and promise yourself never to use the internal memory again.

Cannot find instructions in manual for Nikon Coolpix S210 on how to delete ALL photos from memory disk. It will let me delete one at a time but I want to wipe the memory card clean. Thanks for any and all...


These instructions are from the Instruction Manual of the Coolpix S 210 and need to be carried out within the Set-Up Menu.

Refer Page 19:

Removing Memory Cards
Before removing memory cards, turn the camera off
and confirm that the power-on lamp is off. Open the
battery-chamber/memory card slot cover and press the
card in 1 to partially eject the card 2. The card can
then be removed by hand.
B Formatting Memory Cards
If the message at right is displayed, the memory card must be
formatted before use (A110). Note that formatting permanently
deletes all pictures and other data on the memory card. Be sure
to make copies of any pictures you wish to keep before formatting
the memory card.
Use the multi selector to choose Yes and press k. The
confirmation dialog will be displayed. To start formatting, choose
Format and press k.
Do not turn the camera off or open the battery-chamber/memory card slot cover until
formatting is complete.
• The first time you insert the memory cards used in other devices into the COOLPIX S210, be sure to
format them using this camera (A110).


Refer Pg 110:

 Format Memory/m Format Card
Use this option to format the internal memory or a memory card.
Formatting the Internal Memory
To format the internal memory, remove the memory
card from the camera.
The Format memory option appears in the setup
menu.
Formatting a Memory Card
When the memory card is inserted in the camera, the
Format card option appears in the setup menu.

Hope this helps
