I have used left/right as if you are holding the camera ready to take pictures.
I have included the instructions to rewind the finished film.

!/ Press and hold the film rewind button button on the right side of the camera base.
2/ Fold out the rewind crank top left of camera and turn it in the direction of the arrow.
3/ Once the pressure eases, the film is completely wound into the cassette.
4/ Lift up the film rewind knob top left of camera and pull it out to open the back cover. Now the film cassette can be taken out.
5/ Do this in a place away from direct sunlight.

Where is the battery for vivitar v4000s?


The battery compartment is on the bottom of the camera. Put a coin into the slot of the circular cover and unscrew it to open. The camera uses two LR44 alkalines or SR44 silver batteries or equivalent.

No light meter on Vivitar V3800N


It may be that the batteries that came with the camera are dead. Double check the way you have them installed, both cells should have the positive side up as they sit in the cap. It is best to handle button cell batteries on the round edges rather than the flat sides. The battery cap for your camera should have open slots on the sides so you can place the batteries in using those openings

What Film Should I use for Vivitar V4000?


try Kodak ISO, ( ASA), 400 ( DIN 27 Degree ) 35 mm film to start. if you like the results, stick with it. remember the faster the film the higher the grain. the slower the film the finer the grain, sharper enlargments with finer grain.

Film = no light meter


jackson rook,

the speed of the film may be to high if your camera has dx coding contacts in the film chamber. otherwise---- film in camera or not it has no effect on meter operation. move the advance lever to the right slightly and push down on the shutter release button slightly to turn meter on.

SLR light meter


Hmmm well its getting power.... surely the lens is on correctly. Since the camera seems to be working, one option is to get a hand-held light meter.
