You dont need the disc to download to computer.Take the card from the camera and put it into the card reader on your computer if one is fitted, if not you need one that goes into a USB slot When the card is inserted into the reader a box will open on the screen with several options as to view images or download them.

I would also download Picasa 3 which puts your photos in date order and also has photo editing. This is a free download and is part of google.

My Vivitar 8018 camera when I turn it on it says


If doing a factory reset from the camera's menu options doesn't fix the problem then there isn't anything you can do to fix it yourself.

Sensor fail


If the camera is under warranty I'd take it in to get it repaired. Could be a failed light sensor. Nothing you can fix unless you are an electrical engineer.

Purple lines and a black screen when camera turned on?


Your camera is giving you the classic symptoms that indicate the image sensor has failed, the only fix is to replace the sensor and it's not cost effective unless the camera is under warranty.

Note that some models were fitted with sensors which failed prematurely, if this is the case then your camera may be subject a "soft" recall whereby owners who complain are offered a free repair, even if the original warranty has expired. All you do is pay for shipping.

As you haven't stated your exact model of Canon then I cannot advise you whether your sensor has failed prematurely, but it's expected to last for a minimum of five years on most Canon models.

Why does my camera says sensor fail


Because the sensor has failed...

Unfortunately on a low price camera such as yours (£35), the only way it's worth repairing is if it's still under warranty. Even then, the manufacturer will often throw it in the bin and send you another.

If it's not under warranty then chuck it away as there is nothing you can do to fix a failed imaging sensor, but if you do buy the same model again you will at least have a spare battery and memory card for it if you keep them from the broken camera.

I JUST GOT THE VIVICAM 8018 AND I WANT TO DOWNLOAD MY PICS BUT I DONT HAVE A CD ROM ON MY NETBOOK COMPUTER .IS THERE ANY WAY I STILL CAN DOWNLOAD MY PICS WITHOUT IT???????


Yes. Your netbook probably has an SD slot. Simply take the memory card out of the camera and insert it into the slot. Windows will recognize the card as a disk. Open an Explorer window and drag&drop the pictures from the card onto the netbook. I'll assume you know how to create folders and such, so I won't go into details on that process.

1905FP Monitor Powers up, briefly shows logo, blacks out.


Look inside for bad caps with bulgng tops, worst case will be shorted out transistors in the backlight inverter circuits or bad lamps. Check to see if you do have he 12vdc for the inveter circuits. See example of failed monitors with bad caps here: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
