Question about Vivitar ViviCam 8300s Digital Camera

1 Answer

Battery is jammed inside ViviCam 8300s digital camera

Spring-loaded battery compartment is no longer spring-loaded, apparently. The battery is stuck firmly inside and won't come out. I need to replace the battery because it doesn't hold a charge. Any ideas on how to remove the battery?

I had to bore into the battery case and muscle it out with a knife. The battery had cracked and swelled inside the camera, so that's why it wouldn't come out.

New battery is in, and the camera works better than ever!

Vivicam 8300s


I've been struggling with the same problem and could not figure out what the heck was goin on. When I would connect the camera to the charger the red light (indicating charging) would come on for like maybe 10 minutes. I could take pics for like 30 minutes then the camera would lose juice. Also, the green battery icon (indicating a full charge) would only stay green for like 1 minute then it would go right to the yellow battery icon (half charge). After a couple of weeks the red light indicater would only come on for like a second. I played around with mine and realized that the battery terminals were not connecting to the power source inside the battery holder. Basically the battery wasn't snug enough inside the battery holder to connect to the power. When I pushe the battery in with my finger the red light indicater would stay on. So I took a little piece of paper (folded slightly) and wedge it in the battery holder and closed the battery holder cover. Hope this makes sense! (And helps.)

Error 2 message


I have the same camera, but not the error message. My lens occasionally will get "stuck" out. I have found that removing the battery for a few minutes then re-installing it will "reset" the camera and the lens will retract when the power button is pressed. This "fix" does not always work.
A call to Vivitar only results in the suggestion that you send it in for repair.
