Question about Sakar Cameras

Open Question

Vivicam 128 F, does it have any lens protection? I put the batteries in correctly and turned it on, went through the setup. I then took a picture, viewed the picture and turned the camera off. The glass lens was still open...no cover, unprotected from dust, dirt, etc. is this normal for this camera. I called the sakar number, gave the model #, and was told to remove batteries and reinsert to activate lens protection???Still no closure of lens glass. Does the Vivicam 128 F have ability to close lens or protect it?

SOURCE: Lens cover closed

this is easy to fix. in fact, i just did it on my camera about 2 minutes ago and came back to this post because i was originally looking for a solution myself. anyway, you have to be a little bit rough with the camera to fix it. on the outer lens cover you will notice that there is a metal cover on top of the plastic slider. you need to pry the two apart. there is some seriously sticky tape that is holding the metal cover to the plastic, so you need to be careful that you don't rip the whole thing off. once inside you will see a copper contact that (when you slide the lens cover) makes contact with another piece of metal. when i took a look at mine, it was covered in a bunch of lint. i used a q-tip to clean both contacts and then made sure that they were properly aligned. after that, i slid the lens cover back down and voila! works everytime now. use some superglue to put the metal cover back on again.

SOURCE: lens cover

I know this is an old post, but for those who want to fix it themselves: try blowing lots of compressed air around the open lens shutter to clean the mechanism. Or use a hair dryer for a few seconds (don't want to heat up the camera). Also with the lens barrel extended and pointed downward, tap the lens barrel with a pencil while you extend and retract the lens by powering the camera on and off. A grain of sand in the mechanism is usually the culprit, and you want to try to dislodge it.

You can open it up, but only as a very last resort. The above procedures usually work if you try them enough. But for those particularly nasty stuck mechanisms, here's an example repair on a Canon Powershot A400 (do this at your own risk):

Sounds like the focus motor came loose - you need to take it apart and repair the gear that drives the lens assembly for focusing. The noise you're hearing is the motor trying to focus but since the lens cannot focus it continues to run and signals an error.

Lens error occured after taking a few pictures. I


Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ... Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to this can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some things that you can do that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try.

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

TIPS:
1.)NEVER PUSH THE LENS IN AFTER CAMERA DIES, BUY A NEW BATTERY IMMEDIATLY AND TURN IT BACK ON, CLOSING THE LENS!

Do as i say..

4.) Move the gear manually to make the lens come out.
5.) keep it out, put the front plate back together.
6.) reinsert the battery, turn it on.

1.) Remove the battery.
2.) Wait about 6-8 hours.
