Question about Vivitar ViviCam 5385 Digital Camera
We usually use rechargeable batteries and it has worked fine. But lately when I try to turn it on it it just flashes the red light. The batteries are new.
Open the camera and remove the batteries. Use the eraser on the end of a pencil to reach up inside the camera and gently clean the battery contacts. Be careful not to bend the contacts. Don't use a lot of pressure or a lot of scrubbing, just let the slight abrasiveness of the pencil eraser do the cleaning. Use a pencil with a good clean eraser, not one with a dried out, hard, old eraser. Hold the camera in the normal upright position and reach in from the bottom with the pencil, so all of the eraser bits and dirt fall out of the camera. Check that there are no dirt or eraser bits left inside after you are done cleaning.
Clean the contacts on the battery compartment door the same way.
Hope this helps. It fixed my vivitar 5385 that would not turn on, and had the light blinking.
