Hi, My guess is that the battery is no good any more. It will not take a charge any more. Replace the battery with a new one. Good luck.

MY VIVITAR 550 DOES NOT CHARGE AND DOES NOT TURN ON. WHAT IS THE PROBLEM?


Most likely your Vivitar needs a new battery....if you've lost your a/c adapter-you can use a standard USB cable to charge your camera. Plug the smaller end into your Vivitar & the larger end into your turned on PC/laptop & it'll charge the battery.

How do you recharge camera battery? camera manual is not clear abot how to hook up battery charger or even where it is!


The easiest way is by using a standard USB cable...plug the small end of the USB cable into your camera (located under the headphone jack) then plug the larger end of the USB cable into your PC or laptop. Turn on your computer & this will charge up your Vivitar 550.

Vivitar DVR 545 - Is this going to work with my MacBook?


I have a VIvitar DVR 545 I can not find out how to recharge the rechargable battery



I just bought this camera and had the same problem.

How DO you charge the battery???!!!

Here goes:
Open the box the camera came in and you should find a little rectangualr black box and a 3-pin plug.
Ignore the other stuff unless you think you may need it (depends what country you're in and what your mains supply wall socket fittings are). Take a close look at the little rectangualr black box and you'll see a slot in it. That's where your battery goes! Remember the battery must be taken out of the camera and slotted into this box! Make sure you align the battery correctly to the litle pins inside the box.
The Vivitar DVR 545 uses a sort of mobile phone/cell phone battery.You must take the battery OUT of the camera. Now you have slotted the battery into the box you connect the 3-pin plug to the box and then insert the plug (attached to the box) into your wall mains supply socket. The box will light up and you'll see a red light. Once this light turns green your camera battery is charged!

RE-INSERT THE BATTERY INTO THE CAMERA.

The whole charging procedure for the DVR 545 is ridiculous but there it is! By the way one drawback about having to remove the battery from the camera to charge it is that you will lose all or most of your camera settings. remember to reset video and photo settings - resolution, flash etc., etc.

Also a word of caution:
The Vivitar DVR 550 is unusual in that the battery is charged using the USB port. If you also happen to have a DVR 550 do NOT attempt to charge the Vivitar 545 using the Vivitar DVR 550 USB charger cable!

You will destroy your DVR 545 in seconds!!!!
