Make sure that you have the correct battery type installed, and that the batteries are fresh/fully charged. If the problem persists, you may have corrosion on the battery contacts inside that camera that is preventing full battery power from flowing to the camera. Remove the batteries and wipe the inside camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sand paper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and reinstall them in the camera. This cleaning solves the problem about 90% of the time, and I hope it works for you.

Camera shows no power with new batteriesAAA & Lithum


Is the camera turned on; okay simple question but sometimes that is all that is needed. Look in the battery compartment is it clean, does it have battery corrosion? Sometimes the wires in the battery compartment become corroded thus not making a connection. If so a CLA will be needed.

Yes, the red light indicates that the battery is charging. The light will go out when the battery is fully charged. The time depends on how drained the battery was before charging, and also on the current coming from the computer.

When i start my camera it turns the light green to red and shuts off immeditaly


Green light indicates good battery strength. Red light indicates that your camera has an insufficient or low battery power level and will be automatically powered off. . To continue using the camera, please change your batteries to new ones.


Please note that:
  1. If you don’t intend to use your camera for an extended period of time, please remove the batteries to avoid battery leakage and corrosion.
  2. Do not mix old and new batteries.
  3. Alkaline batteries are generally recommended.

Vivicam 8300s


I've been struggling with the same problem and could not figure out what the heck was goin on. When I would connect the camera to the charger the red light (indicating charging) would come on for like maybe 10 minutes. I could take pics for like 30 minutes then the camera would lose juice. Also, the green battery icon (indicating a full charge) would only stay green for like 1 minute then it would go right to the yellow battery icon (half charge). After a couple of weeks the red light indicater would only come on for like a second. I played around with mine and realized that the battery terminals were not connecting to the power source inside the battery holder. Basically the battery wasn't snug enough inside the battery holder to connect to the power. When I pushe the battery in with my finger the red light indicater would stay on. So I took a little piece of paper (folded slightly) and wedge it in the battery holder and closed the battery holder cover. Hope this makes sense! (And helps.)
