I have the same problem. for some reason it doesn't like lithiums. I have to play with the battery cover for it to work. I thought it was just me.

You did change the batteries, im assuming?

if so, try connecting it to the computer with the USB cable. im not sure if that will do anything, but anything is worth a shot, right?

Drivers for Optimus DV-3040 please


Unfortunately because this camcorder is actually manufactured by a company that sells it with many names it is going to be difficult to find drivers. Try plugging it into your computer and letting Windows do the work for you. It may be able to find a generic driver set for you.

If this doesn't work, the Optimus brand is sold by radio shack. Contact them and see if they can send you a replacement disk for the software.

Ihave a view cam made by sharp and the model #vl-ah160 and it does not hold its charge even wih new batteries.i had drop it and i was wondering if this can cause it fo not holding a charge


if it still works ..I dont think this should have cause any problems ....I guess the power issues came from poor quality of the accumulators or better from a not that great formating of them when they were brand new....another cause may be the age ...after all even in mobile phones , those rechargeable ones have a limited life time ...and his is the way they behave .....I mean they begin to last less and less.. a solution might be new ones...or even try to never let them inside the camera even when the power is off...cause all cameras empty them batteries when they aren;t even on ...

Driver needed


I have both the manual and driver. I also have a firmware update to make it 1.10

It says Traveler but this camera was made under at least 2 brands from the company in China. Optimus and Traveler. Both are part number 16-3899 but are model DV-5040

Driver

Manual

Firmware Update **read instructions that come with it** I'm not responsible.
