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.

Hi there please follow the steps and let me know the result.

1. Ensure batteries are fully charged & clean the battery connector point in side the battery compartment.

2. Look carefully between the lens and the camera body for any sand, dirt or any damaged etc.

3. Try turning the camera with the lens facing down and shake to dislodge anything stuck

4. Try removing batteries and memory card, wait 5 minutes and refit the battery only.

5. Now turn on camera( with out card ) and see ,if working then fix the memory card & again turn on the camera. If working then fine .
Otherwise format the memory card and fix back in camera again & try. Make sure before format the memory card take a
back up all photos in your computer then format. If no luck then reset or restore the camera setting by pressing Menu key for 2 sec ..
in not done the press both Menu & self time key for 2 - 4 sec.

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.

I i have the vivitar 5385 digital camera but i dont have the software on my computer and i dont have the cd is there another way i can do it


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive.
