Question about Vivitar ViviCam 4345 Digital Camera

Switching the camera on .

When I switch the camera on the red light goes on , changes to amber while flashing , and then turns itself off .Sometimes the lens would extend while the light is on but would stay extended when the camera switches off .I have changed batteries, opened the battery casing and shut it again and with a few minor variants , like the screen sometimes flashing on ,I have the same results.

Camera goes on, red light, then goes off


If the lens does not extend then the problem is that the focus element inside the lens has gotten stuck. This is a common issue on this model of camera. If you are mechanically inclined you can remove the front lens cover and front optic giving you access to the secondary optic (this is the focus element). There is a tab of plastic which is easy to grasp with fine tipped pliers, simply grasp it and tug very gently. Turn the camera on and the element should begin moving normally again. If you are not able to do this, or do not have a fine tip screw driver and pliers you can take it to a camera repair shop and give them this information. They should be able to do the procedure for you for a small fee. If the lens does extend, then this is not the problem and I am unsure how to address your problem.

I have a cybershot DSC W55. When the power button is switched on the lens extends and the "access" message shown on screen. Also amber light is flashing above screen. After a few seconds I get a message to power on and off again. I\'ve tried switching on and off a few times, removing battery pack and memory card, but nothing seems to be solving the problem.

My camera wont turn on when i try the amber light flashes and it makes 3 beeps then nothing the batterys full but iam able to load pics on the computer by plugging the cable in


The 3 beeps probably means your lens has failed.
I would guess the lens extends only about half way.

I was quoted $US80 for replacement.

I shall probably give it to my 2 year old as a toy and save up for a better camera.

Won't turn on light flashes green then flashes red then nothing else


This usually means weak batteries, the other possibility is the lens mechanism is faulty or stuck. These cameras will shut down if the lens cannot extend or retract. Sometimes you can coax the lens out with a little help by pulling gently on the lens with your fingers if it starts to come out, don't force it. If you have dropped the camera with the lens out, this can damage the mechanism to either work intermittently or not at all.

Lens retracts when turned on


Defective mechanism, a stucked mechanism is present. camcorder are smart it can detects error and shuts down itself for safety. earlier models dominoes the defect if the user is not quick enough to react when something goes wrong with the camera. You need professional service to fix it.
