Question about Vivitar ViviCam 3305 Digital Camera
The power on button is a small yellow silicon button that no longer works. The batteries have been changed but still wont power up.
Sounds like the switch has gone bad, this is not a user fix and needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: wont turn on
I had the exact same problem. The battery contacts are mildly oxidized. The problem is made worse beacause the outer contact does not put much pressure on the side (+) furthest from the hinge.
SOLUTION: Go to Radio Shack and buy a Deoxit Power Booster Pen. Wipe some on the battery ends that touch the inner contacts and insert while still wet. Rotate the batteries slighly to help coat the contacts. Wipe some deoxit on the outer contacts and close the door while pulling gently away from the hinge so you will get a good "wipe" when you slide the door latched.
I hope this works as well for you as it did for me. Scott L.

It's because the batteries aren't strong enough. You are probably using alkaline batteries, which are not recommended for digital cameras because they drain easily and quickly. Use nimH batteries.

Thank you for using FixYa for your problem
Your camera is faulty. It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.

MSDC stands for mass storage device. Is it possible that there is no memory card inserted? Or maybe the internal memory is full? Try connecting it to your computer via USB and see what it does... Good luck!
