    I have an 8400 with the same problem. By accident, the chrome ring
    (around the lens) popped off. My lens worked after that! I replaced the
    chrome ring and it still works.

How to pop the battery of a vivitar 882 hd camcorder


It's not sealed just, fortunately. It's just difficult to open.
The door should be on the same side of the camera as the lens.
Turn the camera upside down, and using both thumbs, push against the flat area, about 2 cm (or, about an inch) below the lens. Push from the lens toward the Vivitar name. It may not move the first time, but it should come loose after a few attempts.
This is for the Vivitar DVR 882HD. If you have a Vivitar 882 (without the DVR), it should be the same instructions, but the door to the battery case might be on the other side...I don't know if it is or not, because I don't have that version. In either case, though, just keep trying, and it should open for you.

Camera Vivitar 5388 manual says takes max 1G memory chip. Does that mean anything bigger doesn't work at all. Rob.


It means anything bigger won't work in the ViviCam 5388. They may work in other cameras, depending on the camera.

Why doesnt my lens come out?? I just bought it and its not working


If it is still under warranty, return it.
This is more than likely a lens problem, and is not the easiest thing to fix.

My Vivitar Vivicam 5388 lens will not move or shutter operate


Hi cda_graham
Usually it is a flat battery which causes this problem. You have to put in new battery once again and try.

Good luck

The lens will not come out


Hi there.
Face the camera towards the floor and firmly tap the back of the camera while turning it on, this should hopefully free the lens so it can open, make sure that the batteries are fully charged or at least new.

Good luck and thamks for using FixYa!!

Lens wont go back in


Probably grit in the mechanism. That happened to my Olympus, but after frequent re-trying eventually the problem cured itself. It is unlikely that a repair will be economic as the price of digital cameras is so low.
