    My camera freezes up when trying to scroll through the picture gallery on the camera. The only way to get it back to working again is to open the battery compartment lid, but as soon as I try to look at the pictures again, it locks up again. Any suggestions on what may be the problem, and how to fix it? Tapping or hitting or squeezing the camera does not work.

Take it somewhere warm - most cameras will not operate in extremely low temperatures. This is probably covered in the manual.

Vivitar vivicam 7388s lens won't go back into

Hi Dear,

This issue is not with the battery. This is due to the misalignment of the camera lens. This is a delicate hardware problem. Hence,i would suggest you to take it to some professional or your authorized service center and get it repaired there only. Trying to repair it on your own might make the situation worse and would cost a lot money.

If you need more information on this. Please do write to use.

Have a nice day.
