Camera shuts down when i use the zoom.easy share c180


Using the zoom requires the motor which pulls more power than the camera when idle. If the battery is close to exhausted it will shut the camera off when you zoom. If this isn't the case your zoom may be stuck and the camera shuts down to prevent damage.

My zoom is not working properly.. shuts itself off


Never leave battery in the camera, it gives out fumes that can ruin electronic circuits. You may have to replace the motherboard.

How do I change the date on my ViviCam 5385 digital camera?


Assuming the camera is working, with the camera off, rotate the mode dial so that the icon with the wrench lines up as the active mode. Then press the Power button and turn on the camera. Press the right arrow to select Custom Menu. Then press the down arrow to select Date and Time. Then press the OK button. Use the left and right arrows to select a part of the date to change and use the up arrow to increase the value and slide the zoom lever to down button to decrease the value.Press the OK button when the date and time (24 hour clock) is properly set.

The manual for the 5385 is available at retrevo: http://www.retrevo.com/support/Vivitar-5385-Digital-Cameras-manual/id/200bh836/t/2/ . You'll need to enter a code to access the PDF.

I hope this helps.

When I turn on my vivicam 5385 the lense goes in and the shutters close. When i turn it off, the lense goes partially out and the shutters open. The zoom function doesnt work either. Any suggestions??


Hello

Thank you for using FixYa for your problem

Always check the batteries first but if is it still giving the same fault, your camera is faulty.
It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.


Anything is fixable but it is more "is it cost effective"

Please rate our solutions and if you still have problems please call back for more ideas to help you

Thanks

Vivicam 5385 wont zoom in or out, shuts off when i try


It sounds like the motor and gear assembly for the zoom is jammed. Your camera processor detects the problem and shuts the camera off in order to protect it from further damage. I would suggest you take it in for repair at an authorized digital camera repair shop. A qualified technician then can further assess the problem and give you some advise as to what would be the best solution for you.

I hope this helps you out. Good Luck.

Hi,
The problem is of zoom lens motor which operates lens cover along with zoom, and it needs replacement with new part, and camera will start working fine again.
