Question about Vivitar ViviCam 5386 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Vivitar viviCam 5286 issues. Help?

Hello.
I'm having issues with my camera.
First off, every time I try to turn it on...the lense just goes in and out a few times and then eventually stops. But, when it does stop, the screen is still black and it won't let me take any pictures.
I don't think I've dropped it or anything. Not that I can recall, at least.
It would be greatly appreciated if somebody had a solution or possibly knew how I could fix this issue. =)
Thanks.

My camera did the same. I had the same brand. What I had to do was buy rechargable batteries. Rayovac[spelling] or Energizer as seemed to be the cheapest and the best. Do not use disposable batteries in these cameras if you can inform anyone else. It will do the same after awhile if they have used it, or if you use rechargable ones, dont go back to disposable ones. Just, disposable ones = ** lol

My camera does not want to close the zoom lense. I have tried different batteries and nothing is working. It wont even turn on. The red light goes on for about 5 seconds and thats it. What can I do?


The lens are jammed. In this case you have to take it for professional repair. Don't try to repair it yourself as you can damage it beyond repair.

Vivitar 8400 will not turn on. When switching on,


This is more than likely a Manufacturing problem. A lot of Vivitar cameras have this problem as well as many others that are usually not the consumers fault. Just a glitch in the technology. I alone have gone through four Vivitar cameras in the last six months. The best thing to do is contact Vivitar directly. This is there website: www.vivitar.com It is best to see if you can find the number for technical support. To see if they can give you a refund or replace it for you. I hope this helps. -Richard

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

Try hooking it back up to the computer then in the bottom rights hand corner see if the safe remove hardware icon is there if it is then safely remove the camera and 80% of the time that will correct it.
