SOURCE: Battery wont charge

This camera not charged via PC, you can charge the battery only with wall charger(comes with box).When camera is plugged to PC, you can´t use it as a camera, only as a memory card.You can watch your stuff in PC( PC recognise a camera as a flash memory, no more).

So, this is normal..Charge your camera with wall charger(Full charge Red light not flash!, if light flashed camera is charging) Unplug and use as usually!

SOURCE: MY VIVITAR 550 DOES NOT CHARGE AND DOES NOT TURN

Most likely your Vivitar needs a new battery....if you've lost your a/c adapter-you can use a standard USB cable to charge your camera. Plug the smaller end into your Vivitar & the larger end into your turned on PC/laptop & it'll charge the battery.

SOURCE: my vivitar 545 wont turn on

This is 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

How do I know I'm using the SD card on my vivitar camera


Take a picture, then turn off the camera. Turn the camera back on and see if you can review the picture you just took. If you can then the picture is on the memory card.

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.

Make sure that the video camcorder was not turned off immediately after recording before the images are saved in memory. Also be sure that your memory card is properly inserted in your camera.

Camera won't come on with new SD card inserted.


perhaps your card is Locked...there should be a white tab on the side of it. check to see if it is in the locked position.
