The Vivitar DVR 390H is notorious for overheating. When the Vivitar has been on for awhile and/or it is being used heavily(uploading pics/vids to your computer, playing music, viewing videos, etc) it will overheat. The bad part is that it overheats fairly easily.

I have one of these and I do like it, but I mostly use it for its 20 GB harddrive as a backup harddrive. My suggestion is to try and make sure that the camera is not near something such as the fan on your computer, under a lamp, or near a wall when trying to upload pics/vids to your computer. Also when downloading/uploading things to and from this camera, do not try to move ALOT of files at the same time. Also, try to keep it turned off as much as possible when you are not using it. I suggest setting the "power off" to 10 minutes just to make sure.

I hope this helps!

I need manual or CD,DVD that come w/ the vivitar experience image manager dvr-518 I cut into the package. What type of charger go with it. awatkins225@yahoo.com


The DVR-518 uses three AAA batteries. You can use either disposable or rechargeable batteries. If you choose to use rechargeables, you will have to charge them separately, outside the camera. Any battery charger will work, as long as it's compatible with the type of batteries you choose.

You can get more information about the camera, including the manual and software, at

I have a vivicam and it didn't come with a chager this is my frist vivicam ever what do i have to do to chager it?


I sense that your camera is not actually the DVR-390h in the title. That is an older multi-media device that came with a lithium battery and a charger.

If you bought your camera new and got no charger with it, it may be that your camera uses ordinary AA batteries, which can be rechargeable or just disposable Alkaline cells. You would have got a set of alkaline AAs with the camera, and when these expire, you just put in a fresh set, that you can buy anywhere. DON'T use cheap zinc or "long life" AAs, though. They are not up to the task, and can leak and corrode your camera.

If you want to, you can buy a set (or two sets, to have spares) of rechargeable AA cells. Get high capacity NiMH type, preferably 2300mAH or 2700mAH rated ones. You can often buy these with a charger relatively cheaply. These batteries can last longer, per charge, than alkalines, and will work out cheaper in the long run.

Power button


does your camera have a slide switch to choose between filming and playing video? because i have a dvr410 a later model which is very similar and if you hold the power button while moving that sliding switch it should switch on, i would surgest you plug the camera in to its charger or put in a fresh battery while you do this or you will get very frustrated ;~)

Docking station


Vivitar was purchased by Sakar and they do not support anything that Vivitar used to make or carry any of the products. I suggest looking on ebay to see if anyone is auctioning it. If not, Google it for something like "Vivitar DVR 390H docking station".

But to be honest, it probably is not the docking station. I have had the same problem, as many others have had, that the connector in the camera is the issue. This camera has TONS of design flaws.

Dvr 390h


These cameras are notorious for overheating. The one that I have usually takes alittle while before it overheats, but when it does the screen freezes and i can only turn it off by pulling out the battery. The reason these cameras were only produced for about half a year is because of this problem. There is a major design flaw with the camera. If you look at it closely, you will not see proper ventilation areas. If you have noticed, after using the camera for maybe 10-15 minutes the back of it gets EXTREMELY hot. My best suggestion is to try to keep it away from ANY external heat sources when using it. Also, do not use it for prolonged amounts of time. The only thing I use mine for now is a backup harddrive because of the 20 GB harddrive on it and I don't have to worry about overheating because as soon as I am done uploading files, I turn it off. So if nothing else, you do have a pretty nice backup hard drive. Hope this helps!

I lost my adapter to recharge my camera


You might be able to buy a replacement or universal adapter at your local CircuitCity or Best Buy. If you can find one there, may I suggest that you contact the camera's manufacturer.
