What if the rewinding lever doesnt rewind ?


Change the batteries under the camera. This camera is electronic. With a new battery, the camera will reset the mirror and you can **** the shutter and lower the mirror. If this does not fix the problem you may have a shutter or advance problem and the camera would have to be send off for repair. Start witht he battery, that is the fix 9 out of 10 times.

Vivitar 3800n film advance lever does not move all the way. it only moves less than a quarter of a turn


make sure film is out and try to rotate the lever from the inside of the camera by turning it if the film release button "at the bottom" pop out then you should be able to use the lever again if not then it's a mechanical problem something might be out of place or broken. i just had the same issue 5 min ago and now it works fine.

What flash will fit the V3800N SLR film camera?


Pretty much any flashgun with a standard hotshoe. The 3800N is extremely basic and does not take advantage of any dedicated flash functions, so you'll find loads of cheap or even free basic manual or auto-exposure flashguns on auction websites and also on FreeCycle.

I'd suggest a basic manual flashgun as you then fully control it. Automatic flashguns try to second guess what it is you're photographing so can often over-expose the subject. You also learn more using a basic manual flash which is probably the only reason to buy a 3800N in the first place.

Cameria 3800n mirror broken


Yes, the repair will cost you more then a new used camera. You can find many used 35mm film cameras that cost hundreds of dollars new on e-bay or Craig's List in the low price range. For example, a Nikon or Cannon that sold new for over $1000 regularly sell for under $100.
