Question about Vivitar Vivicam 5105s Digital Camera

Camera wont turn off

I hit one of the buttons while doing a search, the camera view screen went white, and the green on light stayed on until the battery ran out. Nothing I did ie close the front cover, push any of the buttons in various sequences would turn off the camera. Have had the camera for a couple of years without problems until today. Thanks

Re: camera wont turn off

Remove the battery. The same thing happened to mine and once I put the battery back it worked fine.

Camera wont turn on.

try replacing the battery. Check best buy, radioshack or other camera dealers for a battery. Possible deadcell battery. These lith-ion batteries die with no warning. If there is no change, the camera is defective!! hopefully htis helps

If it still in warranty send it back.
If out of warranty and as this is a 'cheap disposable' item there are no economic repair options -so you could try to dismantle it your self to see what is what and if no joy - replace it.

Blank view finder fe-190

try switching your camera on in a dark room (do it at night with the curtains closed and the lights off).

if the screen lights up (should still be black or a very dark green),
then the lens or light sensors might not be functioning correctly.

if the screen stays conpletely black, then the actual screen might be damaged.

note- you might need to let your eyes adjust to the darkness before you switch your camera on.

Wont stay on

I just contaced Sony support for the exact same problem. If you're able to power the camera on in VIEW mode, open the rubber tab to expose the USB and DC In connections, directly above that there is a small RESET button. Get a paperclip and push and hold the button until the camera resets itself. This fixed my problems, hope it will fix yours!

Camera wont stay on, please help

Possible that the Lens Mechanism is out of sync. If its still within warranty just bring it in and have it serviced. If not I may be able to help you out but it requires dismantling the camera,..

If any one knows a quicker and easier way maybe they can post it here But as far as experience goes thats what happened with mine,

Hope this helps
