This is cause by a bad flash componet inside the camera that has malfuction witch puts a huge DRAW on the battiers this causes the unit not to recieve power to the rest of the unit. I would seriously have a camera shop look at (hate to bring you bad news but it is what it is) if its under warranty seek out that repair.


thanks and please do be considerate wiht your ratings and feedbacks. Have a good day.

My camera doesnt record audio. I record video just fine, but it doesnt play back the auido. :( Also, this is the 3rd vivicam 8400 that I have bought. The other 2 broke when I brought them underwater.


The 8400 is designed primarily as a still camera, with some video capabilities grafted on. As such it captures images not sounds. You can add a soundtrack using video-editing software on a computer but you cannot record one on this camera.
Sorry if that wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but that's the way it is.

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

Vivitar 7340 won't turn on even with new batteries


Could be a loose circuit board connection, could be bad contacts in the battery compartment. Your only hope is to try to clean the battery contacts with alcohol and a q-tip. Sometimes a baking soda solution works better for cleaning, but does not dry like alcohol. Try not to get liquids in the camera.

Vivicam 8400


I have a ViviCam 8400 and have the same problem UNLESS I buy Duracell Power Pix or Energizer Titanium batteries. These cost more than the regular grade AA batteries, but when I used brand new regular batteries, the camera would turn on for 2 seconds then turn right off. Titanium or Power Pix batteries make the camera work fine. And, because they are made for digital media, they do allow you to use the camera for longer periods of time.
