SOURCE: AA Battery Drain...just discovered a 3V battery in my camera

Usually the 3v battery holds the date and time in your camera. A lot of time with digital cameras you have to remove the batteries when there not in use for a long period of time to prevent the draining from happening.

Do you have regular AA batteries to see if the meter changes? That would be the best way to see it the camera is reporting the correct battery life.

This is usually caused by a failed component in the power circuit within the camera and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Need to know what battery type to use for the Vivitar PZ3090 35mm Date-A-Print. It needs a replacement battery. Thanks!


Your camera takes a 3v CR123 battery. Click here for details of the same battery under different model numbers.

They're still easy to obtain.

Fuji FinePix S2 Pro won't turn on


I had a very similar problem a couple of years ago. Found intermittent power from AA source when battery tray was moved slightly while shooting. I ordered a new AA battery tray from Fuji ($50 I think), problem solved, no trouble since. The tray must hold the batteries tightly against the contacts inside the camera. Camera had only shot about 5000 frames when the problem arose. Hope this helps.

AC adapter for ViviCam 3765.


The polarity is correct, but 400mA is not enough. One commercial supply I saw was rated at 2.5A. I even suspect 3v isn't enough as I have tried an external battery pack with D-Cells in it and after a few flash shots it wants new batteries. The camera itself seems to be over-sensitive to "low" voltage and complains about new or freshly charged batteries (see other posts).

There is a problem with these cameras in this battery voltage area. I have asked Vivitar what external voltage to use, but no reply. Good luck! I am sufficiently fed up with this camera that I may try 4.5v external supply and if it blows up, good riddance!
