If there is no option of voltage change you need to buy a new one for us. because the US use 110/60 HZ and UK use 220/50Hz. S the problem not only the different voltage it is also the problem of Freequency(50Hz & 60Hz).

Where can i get a charger for vivtar 5388 in uk?


Try a universal battery charger. Lots of types, most of the time cheaper than an original charger, and capable of charging almost all Camera batteries. Independent what voltage they are, so you could use the same charger with your next camera too. There are chargers with manual setup of the connectors, but also chargers that sense the contacts automatically and know what voltage they should deliver to charge the battery. Lots of chargers, lots of prices.

The VPC-S770R uses standard AA batteries. Chargers for rechargeable AA batteries should be available at just about any department, electronics, or office-supply store. Do NOT try to recharge non-disposable alkaline or lithium batteries. Also bear in mind that the camera itself is not a battery charger. If you want to use rechargeable batteries then they must be charged outside the camera using a separate battery charger.

How I can charge my batteries on my Vivitar Vivicam 8025 if I don't have a battery charger?


Yes, you may charge the battery through the USB connection. Bear in mind that not all computer USB ports put out enough current to charge batteries. You may also use an AC-powered USB charger, such as used for some cell phones.

How do I charge the battery


From page 7 of the manual, you have two choices.

You can charge the battery with the USB cable, connecting the camera to a computer. Bear in mind that not all USB ports put out enough current to charge a battery.

You can use the supplied battery charger. Put the battery in the charger and plug the charger into a wall outlet.

No power


They only have three connectors in the camera, unfortunately, you may be looking at a repair bill or replacement, as the minimum cost to repair may be more than replacement cost. i have an FZ 15 and love it, but the newer ones do much better especially in darker settings, I also have an FZ 18, seems cheaper, but good photos, the FZ 28 I think is the current one, but a step up would be better if your wallet allows, you are used to a heck of a good camera and the replacement needs to be a good one!

My rechargeable battery for my canon elph does not hold a charge. What is the best way to charge the battery with the CB-2LU charger?


How old is your rechargeable battery? Keep in mind the battery is only meant to last for a couple years max. It might be time for a new battery. Also, there are many inexpensive generic versions of the NB-3L battery that you can purchase these days. Here's one example from Amazon. There are many more there, just type NB-3L in the search block. Remember to read the user reviews.

Camera keeps turning off


Digital cameras are very Voltage Sensitive. Using Nicad or NiMh batteries will not only , "Not" solve the problems above but will
actually aggravate the above problems for one reason.

Rechargable NiCad or NiMh batteries only produce 1.2 volts fully charged and will only give you 2.4 volts when used in pairs with this camera. This falls below the cameras desired 2.8 - 3.0 voltage requirement and will only result in about 30-40 pictures at most.

This camera requires a constant 2.8 - 3.2 volts to run properly. Kodak won't tell you this !!The camera was designed with Oxy Akaline batteries in mind.New alkalines will produce 3.2 to 3.4 volts in pairs but only for a short period of time.The issue with the Oxy Alkaline batteries is that they simply will not last very long in this camera due to its power requirements.

But there is a really great solution to the problem . You can purchase a CRV3 rechargeable Li-ion battery that fits right into this camera.
You will get a realistic 180-250 photos per charge.The Li-Ion battery maintains a constant 3.0 volts for a very long period of time
and will allow the camera to function the way Kodak originally intended it to and can be recharged. You will find rechargable CRV3 battery kits on ebay or other online battery stores at a very reasonable cost.

You can also use a Lithium Non rechargeable CRV3 battery that will give approx 250-300 photos per battery but you may
find non rechargeable Lithium batteries cost prohibitive.

I use the rechargeable Li-ION Battery exclusively in this camera and it functions perfectly since I switched. I have a pair
of CRV3 Li-Ion batteries so I always have a fully charge CRV3 ready to go.

For reference I was only able to get about 30 pictures with the high capacity 2800 Mah Rechargeable NiMH Batteries I used prior
to using the LI-ION Battery. I get on average about 175 pictures per full charge from the LI-ION Battery.
