Question about Vivitar ViviCam 5100 Digital Camera

1 Answer

No display, green light stays on

Recently my Vivitar Vivicam 5110 stopped working. The LCD display does not light up when the camera is turned on. The only thing that happens is the green light comes on but then the camera will not turn off unless I take out the batteries. I've replaced the battteries as well as the SD card with no luck. Any suggestions, can it be fixed?

    Yup, same problem here, perhaps not booting to gui or os or whatever it is.

    Maybe something internal has been shaken/stirred up, the camera I've been using has been totally ownt with drops and what not.

Looking for Vivitar ViviCam 5110 driver for Windows Vista

This is what I have found. It is not compatible with Vista. There are a lot of pay sites that say they have the driver than you download it only to find that it does not work. Another problem you have is because your camera is older than the cameras Vivitar are selling now there is no online support. You might be able to get support by calling them directly.

My camera has a black screen even when is on

It does not look good.
Here are some problems which could be with this camera:
LCD broken or bad.
CCD problem.

Since you go have some light on the green light, then that appears to be a LCD problem. this can happen if the camera had an impact to cause the LCD to be damaged or disconnected in some way.
