A) You seem in a bit of a hurry - please don't forget that none of us are paid for the help we offer, and its is likely that someone with the expertise to answer your query is not currently on line. Some of us work, some of us have real lives.
B) You have given no information in this query about the make and model of the camera - merely saying 'Green Cameras' is hardly a sufficient description of your equipment.
C) 'Threatening' to sell the camera if you don't get a reply is not only childish, but silly - with that attitude, do you really feel you are the right kind of person to own a camera ?
D) Following on from that, how do you expect to be able to sell a non-working camera at all ?
If you would care to politely and patiently provide the fullest information and description of the fault that you can, I am sure someone will eventually be able to help you.

    The camera is a vivitar vivicam 8025. The problem
    is that I cannot get the camera to power on after I disconnect it from the adapter. I bought a new battery from Germany and I also put a new SD card
    in it. Could someone please tell me what to do?
    Thank you for any help you can provide. Pam L.

    Here is a link to the manual :
    As the camera is at least eight years old now, it is possible it may need replacing - repair is unlikely to be a feasible option.

Does the red light change colour when the Power Bank is fully charged?

It depends on the power bank unit you have because some power bank just blink indicating is already full. Other units turned green while others just remained red. Its better to read the manual if you still has it.

My vivitar will not come on a blue msdc screen and blinking red light

I just called the help desk. MSDC and a blinking red light means that it is charging. It takes 6 hours to charge and you are not to take disconnect it from the USB until it is fully charged. Once it is charged the blinking light will turn green.... not sure whether it will still be blinking or not. This is what the lady on the phone told me so I haven't been able to try it out yet, but I will update if I call again.

I can't get my brand new vivitar vivicam 8025 to charge. it's been a couple of hours already. wondering how long it takes the first time.... screen is blue with msdc and cant get it to do anything. any...

My roommate had the same problem, pretty easy to fix. Make sure your memory card and battery are all the way in and they should lock. If you lost the booklet, the positive/geative signs should be on the bottom right when sliding it in.

Power Light Is Red, Internet Light Is Green, Other Lights Off

Check cable connections.

Try unplugging router from power for five minutes.

If that does not work call Internet Service provider to check if there is a problem with their server.

SLR light meter

Hmmm well its getting power.... surely the lens is on correctly. Since the camera seems to be working, one option is to get a hand-held light meter.

Try taking the batteries out of the camera for a few minutes, and see if that helps to "reboot" the camera.
