Vivitar Microscope - Light Works BUT still CAN'T SEE A THING

Purchased as my son's christmas gift, as well as some additional kid-friendly slides. The light feature works and every part seems to be in working order...but for the life of us we cannot see a thing! We've (5 different adults!) have tried everything!

Just called the company that's taken over the manufacturing of Vivitar products and got the same "call back at the end of February" response. I hope they will replace this toy because my son is REALLY into this toy - despite his never actually using it to VIEW anything.

Any suggestions would be appreciated!

    Can you see light through the lens?



    If so, I would start with the lens all the way down and VERY VERY slowly raise it. The focus point will be very short.

How to work the vivitar vivicanm 3188 when only blue light when plugged in


Disconnect the camera from the computer. About the only thing you can do with the camera when connected to a computer is to transfer pictures and videos from the camera to the computer.

Light on the Vivitar 900x microscope does not function


It's not uncommon for these low end microscopes to have wiring issues right out of the box. My guess is a faulty contact at the switch or at the socket, as these microscopes work on a very simple electrical circuit.

You can try to disassemble the microscope yourself and see if you can find the disconnected wire, shouldn't be too hard. The other options are to send it back to walgreen's and try to exchange it, have it sent back to directly to vivitar for warranty repairs, or have a technician check it for you.

the part you plug the wires into may be dirty and the computer may be unable to read the files. you should clean your mp3 player slots by blowing into it.

Need replacement part for my sons vivitar microscope set


You turn the light on by LITTERALLY turning the light on it's hinges. It swivels and when the light is in it's downward position (with the little light bulb pointing towards the ground) it is off. When you flip it over (with the little light bulb pointing towards the the veiwing platform) it should turn on.

If you look closely, you'll see the metal-to-metal contact pieces that trigger the light to come on.

Good luck!

Rock band guitar light blinks like there is a short.this was bought a week ago.


being because getting this gift was for a good reason I would take it back asap, being that it is no longer christmas people are taking back gifts due to them being gifts and no receipt so they will not give you a hard time so please take it back.
I lost my dad a little time ago and I bought it as well with some others and mine is not doing that so do it before it is to late. If you have receipt and it is not 30 days old then take it but if it is 30 days old then go to the store and let them know that it was a gift and you would just like to trade it for another one. they will give you no problems
