First thing you have to do is check and make sure that you have power coming from the charger. It sounds for sure to me that your problem is that the camera is not getting a charge.
Make sure you power off, remove the card and battery if you can. Check your contacts on the card and battery and reinsert them. Th eproblem could lie with the card. My DSLR will not operate without a card in it, and yours may just not be reading the card.
please remember to rate this fix.

Try first to remove the battery for 5 minutes and then after that put it back in, but if still the same problem i suggest yu try a different battery because this can be a problem with the battery...

MY VIVITAR 550 DOES NOT CHARGE AND DOES NOT TURN ON. WHAT IS THE PROBLEM?


Most likely your Vivitar needs a new battery....if you've lost your a/c adapter-you can use a standard USB cable to charge your camera. Plug the smaller end into your Vivitar & the larger end into your turned on PC/laptop & it'll charge the battery.

Hi I,have a Vivitar DVR550,and need a new recharger for it. when I,but when I,put my model in the vivitar support page it does not have the model number in the list.There is nothing wrong with my camera...


Go here:

http://www.amazon.com/VIVITAR-DVR-545-DVR-550-DVR-550G-CAMCORDER/dp/B002RN6DO0/ref=sr_1_64?ie=UTF8&s=photo&qid=1260903217&sr=1-64

You can read the specs of exactly what type of charger is needed, or just purchase it.

Vivitar DVR 550 was a well known model in the UK. but the company Sakar bought the Vivitar comapany out. However, the Vivitar site still exists, but not much support for the DVR 550 is provided. I would recommend e-amiling them by visiting www.vivitar.com

Good Luck

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
