    I have a VPC S500 Sanyo. I purchased it in Sept 2007 at Walmart. It worked fine until now. The stutter started to go in reverse. I mean the lens open when the camera is off and they close when the camera is on. I need help.

    Kidizoom Camera 80-77300

    The camera worked fine for close to 6 months and the started shutting down sooner, one day it would not turn on any more, even after putting new batteries in it.

    It would be nice to know how to fix it or figure out what might be wrong without spending much.

    My daughter just received the kid tough camera for Christmas last week and it is doing the same thing (shutting down). I replaced the batteries and now it won't turn on at all. HELP! I think we have thrown out the packaging etc. Not impressed that it is not working already.

    I bought the Sanyo VPC-S880 Digital Camera for my daughter for christmas and she just started using it- After a couple of uses it it started shutting down as soon as you turn it on-I put in new batteries to see if it was bad batteries-it still does it. Can't find warrenty papers, box for it. The Manual book shows nothing at all to trouble shoot.

    as soon as i turn on my camera, it closes down and stops working. in the time between the swich on and the swich off the image apears on the screen. i think that this problem may be related to a drop.

1. Check batteries.
2. Connect camera to an AC adapter.
3. Remove all batteries, disconnect AC adapter, wait a minute, reinsert batteries and reconnect adapter. Turn on camera.

Would like to know model # for charger for a sanyo vpc-t700 camera. I lost my charger and need to find a replacement charger that came with the camrea. That is why I need model #. Please Help Jon

I have the same problem. Sanyo advised this charger is no longer made. Other than eBay, Radio Shack has charger that will work with the battery in the VPC-T700 and priced at $30. Walmart has a universal charger for numerous devises with varying connections, also priced at $30. I did not try the Walmart option; however, the packaging does list Sanyo products are compatable.

The battery for my sanyo digital camera won't charge.

I had this same problem with my Sanyo. I went on E Bay and purchased a new battery.. It was about 8 dollars and shipped from China. But it worked when I put the new battery in and charged it.

Take batteries out and clean the base of the battery compartment with a pencil eraser do the same with the battery compartment cover contact's now try. If that fail hold the battery compartment tight then turn on. If it comes on then - open the compartment and lay a piece of foil across the batteries and close the lid. does it work? No to bad it dies but you should have a warranty- do you have other proof of purchase?
