Question about Vivitar ViviCam 3615 Digital Camera
Remove the battery AND the memory card.
Then reinsert both starting with the memory card FIRST.
Doing this, the camera will keep its settings while you take pictures but will revert back to its default settings as soon as the camera is turned off, or if you going into playback mode, etc.
This is a little frustrating for us but since the camera is for our 7 year old, she's not really concerned much. Hopr that helps you!

Yes and no. The camera will use the flash if it thinks it's necessary. Unfortunately, what the camera thinks and what you think may not be the same. Often indoors, you won't be allowed to use flash, or you may get better results without flash, so you'll have to override the camera and turn the flash off. Other times, outdoors you may want to use the flash to fill in the shadows, thus you'll again have to override the camera and force the flash.
Instructions for using the flash are in the manual. If you've misplaced yours, you can download a copy from the manufacturer's web site at http://vivitar.com.

This is more than likely a Manufacturing problem. A lot of Vivitar cameras have this problem as well as many others that are usually not the consumers fault. Just a glitch in the technology. I alone have gone through four Vivitar cameras in the last six months. The best thing to do is contact Vivitar directly. This is there website: www.vivitar.com It is best to see if you can find the number for technical support. To see if they can give you a refund or replace it for you. I hope this helps. -Richard

There is a switch on the side of the camera that needs to be in down position (scenery) for the camera to flash. Worked for me.
