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.

The only sign of life after switching on is the Multi-indicator light flashing red. This continues for about 1 minute before when it turns off. I have noticed sometimes 1 or more green flashes...


Please indicate the brand and model of your digital camera. Can you remember anything that happened with your camera before you experience the problem now? Do you see anything at all at the LCD screen?

Screen black. Power light on unit flashes red slowly. Power light on switching adaptor power supply flashed green slowly.

Sounds like the battery might be low which would cause the red flashing light and dark screen. Let it charge for a little bit then try turning it on again. If it still does it with the power supply plugged in, make sure there isn't a lens cover on it, and switch modes or try getting into the menu to see if you can get anything to come up. If that still doesn't work then it sounds like there might be a problem with the camera.

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.

Vivitar 8400 will not turn on. When switching on,

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: 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

My camera keeps turning itself off and the amber light keeps flashing

Please check whether the battery is fully charged.
Please try using a different battery.
If the issue still persists after changing the battery try Power Resetting the Camera which should resolve the issue.
To Power Reset the Camera, First, please turn OFF the Camera.
Then, remove the battery pack from the Camera.
Then, press and hold the POWER button on the Camera for 30 seconds.
Then, reinsert the battery pack and check whether the issue is resolved.

Flashes twice

This can have two reasons: 1. The camera is doing light metering at the first flash. I don't know whether you can change that. (May be there is a way to set flash level manually...) 2. Red-eye reduction. You could try switching it off, but then you might get red eyes on your pictures. However, there is PC software out there which can remove this artefact later (more or less).

Plz help

remove the SD Card and the batteries. Wait for half an hour and then insert two new batteries. Do not put the SD card in as yet. (Waiting for half an hour or more allows the camera to reset itself).

Now try switching on and good luck.
