Question about Vivitar ViviCam 8300s Digital Camera

1 Answer

Vivicam 8300s I have a vivicam 8300s. My battery will not charge. I tried a new battery, the same one that came with it when I bought it, but that will not take a charge either. When I have it plugged into the charger the camera will turn on & work fine, but when it is unplugged it will not turn on. Any suggestions?

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.)

Battery is jammed inside ViviCam 8300s digital camera


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!
