It sounds like you need a new battery and/or battery charger. I had the same problem with a simular camera before and just replaced both the charger and the battery because I wasn't sure which one of them was faulty. I haven't had a problem since then. I bought them from the website www.needbattery.com the company guaranteed thier batteries for a year and thier price was the cheapest on and off the internet that I could find. They have both batteries and chargers for your specific camera. This should take care of your problem. Hope this helps

Hi,

Often the prongs on the battery flap (cover) are not wired to anything inside the camera and are simply a way of interconnecting the batteries to each other.

If they need to be replaced, you of course can try getting them from the manufacturer or have a qualified professional do it for you.

Alternately, if you would like to try a makeshift/DIY/workaround, you can try:
1. getting similar prongs from battery powered toys, old/defective remote controls or any other to be discarded electronic devices that uses batteries; or not so technically correct
2. fashion one from a metal type folder/paper fastener;
3. fashion one from a folded thin or aluminum foil.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I want to upload a video to my macbook pro for an iMovie, but it says I need a Fire Wire...Is it possible to connect my Vivitar DVR 410 to a FireWire cable?


As a tech, I found FireWire cables to be vastly unreliable, but if you just have to have one, do NOT scrimp. Get one that is heavy duty. The thicker the cable, the better. Avoid flexing the cable near the connectors if at all possible.

How do i get an 8gb sd card to work in my vivitar dvr-530 cam corcoder?


The DVR-530 works with SD cards, which max out at 2GB. Your 8GB card is actually an SDHC, not an SD card. While SDHC cards fits into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work in this camcorder. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

Sorry if that wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but that's the way this camera works.

Is the vivitar dvr 530 compatible with sdhc cards


Plug the SD card with contact terminals facing away from battery. It most likely is using internal memory which is much smaller. All cards under 4gb are normal SD. The camera should be able to format the card, or use an adapter and windows will format (default settings).
