Question about Vivitar Vivicam 3345 Digital Camera
I put brand new battery's in my vivitar 3345 vivacam and now it wont power up.
I had the exact same problem. The battery contacts are mildly oxidized. The problem is made worse beacause the outer contact does not put much pressure on the side (+) furthest from the hinge.
SOLUTION: Go to Radio Shack and buy a Deoxit Power Booster Pen. Wipe some on the battery ends that touch the inner contacts and insert while still wet. Rotate the batteries slighly to help coat the contacts. Wipe some deoxit on the outer contacts and close the door while pulling gently away from the hinge so you will get a good "wipe" when you slide the door latched.
I hope this works as well for you as it did for me. Scott L.
