When Vivitar ViviCam3915 is in camera mode, "lens cover closed" message keeps coming up before picture has even been attempted. As soon as camera is powered on, I get that message.

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.

Is there an automatic lens cover?


chas6_9.jpg

Hi, yes there is one and you may just be able to see the diagonal line in this picture. It is the division between the two parts of the automatic lens cover, which should close to protect the lens when the camera is turned off.

If you cannot see a cover then it may be stuck open, perhaps by dust, but the camera should otherwise still be able to work normally. You probably cannot get to the cover to manipulate it with a pin and perhaps blow on it with a lens puffer, but anyway this might cause some damage.

In use the cover might come free again and I hope these comments are helpful.

Casio Exilim Z40 - Lens Error Message


You can try to "fix" this problem by holding down the shutter release button as soon as the camera power up.If this does not work you will need to replace the lens assembly. This should only be done by a qualified tech.
This is usually caused by one of two circumstances. (1) The user dropped the camera while the lens was extended causing a mechanical failure. (2) The lens attempts to extend while in a pouch or pocket without the user's knowledge. This usually happens when the user is carrying the camera with the battery in. When/if the REC button or power button is pressed accidentally, the lens will attempt to extend but can't. This causes the servo motors to "smoke".

Camera goes to sleep too quickly...is there a way to adjust?


To save battery power, the camera automatically goes into sleep mode and the monitor turns off if there is no operation after 3 minutes when the camera is turned on (when the lens cover is open and the monitor is on). No picture is taken even if the shutter button is fully pressed in this mode. Operate the zoom button or other buttons to restore the camera from sleep mode before taking a picture. If the camera is left on for 15 minutes, it automatically turns off (the lens cover closes and the monitor turns off). Press POWER to turn the camera on.

Lense problem


Dear jmgrev,

Whenever you turn your camera on and your lens doesn't go in and out properly you are likely experiencing a lens error of some sort. Look for an error 18 or a "lens error restart camera" message. If either of these appears you definitely have a lens motor mechanism problem and will need to send the unit in for service.

If the lens still functions, but only intermittently - or if there seems to be a functional problem in focusing correctly or in taking an excessive time to focus, then you are in the early stages of what will soon become a fullblown lens issue.

These problems can be caused by a variety of things such as having obstructed the lens when turning the camera at one point, or getting grit in the lens mechanism or during/after a fall or some sort of impact. It can even happen spontaneously due to the tracking mechanism coming out of gear. Hopes this helps.

Sincerely,
HeavyDLB

Vivitar DVR 550


Problem is not with Vista or the camera drivers. More likely it’s that the camera is set in “macro mode” which is used for taking photos of things real close. On the right side of the camera there is a slide switch, you want to be sure that it is in the up position (Normal).

If the switch is in the correct position, look if the lens is clean. Even if the LCD shows a good image a smudge on the lens will show up on the photo.

Low battery maybe? Try holding camera firmly in one hand, with camera on and in record mode, and strike in on its edge firmly on the heal of your other hand. This technique is often sucessful with temporary camer 'quirks' like freezing, lens not fully retracting, etc.
