Question about Vivitar DVR-550 DV Camcorder

2 Answers

I am supposed to have Vivitar support for my camera/recorder

I can not reach the Vivitar company.  The phone number refers me to Syntac/Brilliance(spelling?) but that is not Vivitar.  What is the Vivitar support number?  How does one reach Vivitar?

My Vivitar DVR-310 won't turn on anymore

Most obvious are the batteries. You are supposed to use two AA Alkaline / Ni-MH batteries. The best choice are the Ni-MH rechargeable ones, because you can record twice as long as with the expensive alkaline batteries. When the alkaline batteries are empty, you have to trow them away.
But Ni-MH batteries don't live forever. Typical they should survive 1000 charge discharge cycles, but when "misused" they can be bad before you reached that.
Please also check the contacts. Both, on the batteries and in the camera, where the batteries go, if these contacts are all clean and shiny. And at last, make sure you did put in the batteries the correct way. Turned around the camera won't work at all.
If you got the camera brand new, you should know there are no batteries delivered with the camera.

Can i do a video with the vivitar vivicam x327?

Yes. Bear in mind, however, that the X327 will not record sound. You can add a soundtrack using video-editing software on a computer, but you can't record one on the camera.

Please refer to the manual for full details on using the video features. If you've misplaced the manual, you can download a copy from the manufacturer's web site at

Where is the volume for the video part on the x014 located

I'm going to assume you're referring to the Vivitar ViviCam X014. If you're referring to another camera, please reply to this post specifying the make of the camera.

The ViviCam X014 does not record any sound to go with its videos. You can add a soundtrack using video-editing software on a computer, but you can't record one on the camera.

I know this wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but that's the way the camera works (or doesn't work).

My Vivitar camera will not record with sound.why? model number X327

The X327 is designed primarily as a still camera. It records images, not sounds. You can add a soundtrack using video-editing software on a computer, but you cannot record one on the camera.

That probably wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but there it is.

Does Vivitar Camera 8025 record Sound? My

Unfortunately that's the way it is. The ViviCam does not record sound. It's basically a still camera with a little video capability grafted on. It's not a camcorder.

Can't find a Vivitar phone number to repair my 550

No, please. I was looking for the company-related repair center. I think an outfit by the name of Sakar is the official repair center, but time will tell.

Thanks but no thanks
