How do you charge the Vivitar DVR 550

The box the dvr came in contradicts itself. On one side of the box it says "charger included", and where it says "What's in the box" does NOT mention a charger. So, I ask, how do I charge the ion battery? Will using the adapter do it? I have tried to contact Vivitar, and after 20 minutes on hold, the speaking with someone I did not understand, he connected me to another extension, where I hung up after 25 minutes. Anyone know how to charge the ion battery? Much appreciated!!!

    Actually, the Ac Adapter that plugs into the DVR is the charger for the Ion battery... You think they could tell you this in the manual...

I just bought this camera used on Ebay and the seller told me it charges via the USB cable. He forgot to ship that to me, though, so I don't know yet if that is true or not.

Hi I,have a Vivitar DVR550,and need a new recharger for it. when I,but when I,put my model in the vivitar support page it does not have the model number in the list.There is nothing wrong with my camera...


Go here:

http://www.amazon.com/VIVITAR-DVR-545-DVR-550-DVR-550G-CAMCORDER/dp/B002RN6DO0/ref=sr_1_64?ie=UTF8&s=photo&qid=1260903217&sr=1-64

You can read the specs of exactly what type of charger is needed, or just purchase it.

Vivitar DVR 550 was a well known model in the UK. but the company Sakar bought the Vivitar comapany out. However, the Vivitar site still exists, but not much support for the DVR 550 is provided. I would recommend e-amiling them by visiting www.vivitar.com

Good Luck

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!!!!
