Try inserting a tooth pick into the reset hole found just below on-off button and slightly to the left. Apparently the camera requires a reset after batteries have been changed. Our problem after resolving this problem is now the camera doesn't always stay on, i.e., turns off by itself.

    That is a feature of the camera, kids never turn off lights in the house and the same goes for their camera... Auto shut off saves our money on batteries

I fixed my sons camera. i first carefully removed the rubber 'nibs'. they conceal the 4 screws you will need to unscrew. i then opened the camera and found that one of the tint silver wires that serve as terminals to the battery was disconnected. possibly due to it being dropped. i then used a piece of polymer clay to prop it back into place. ideally, i would have soldered it back into place. it wasnt coming on at that point. i pressed reset and tried again. noth9ing. then i hooked the usb up to it with batteries installed.careful not to ground anything. i then saw the screen come on while on usb. then i unhooked usb and tried to turn it on again. and viola. it works.

    Thank you for this. I have just taken my sons camera apart and sure enough the battery wire had disconnected. Soldered it back and hey presto, it works! I'd spent ages trying to work out where the screws were, your post saved me alot of time. :-)

How do i charge up tthe kiddizoom camera for my daughter ?? it came with a usb lead that links up to computer and one other lead to connect up to television


The Kidizoom uses four standard AA batteries. You may use disposable alkalines or rechargeables. If you choose to use rechargeables, you much charge them using a separate charger. The Kidizoom is not a battery charger.

Not sure how to charge the vtech kidizoom camera


The Kidizoom uses four standard AA batteries. The manual recommends disposable alkaline batteries. If you wish to use rechargeable batteries, they must be charged in a separate battery charger; the camera does not include charging circuitry.

You should be able to find rechargeable batteries and battery chargers at just about any department, electronics, or office-supply store.

My daughter's Kidizoom won't turn on - I have replaced the batteries and it makes no difference - I have checked the batteries in another console and they are fine. Any ideas?


I initially thought my batteries were dead, too. Try inserting a tooth pick into the reset hole. It can be found below the on-off button and slightly to the left. Apparently after battery changes, the unit needs to be reset. This worked for me.

Try this:
1, Remove the bateries.
2, Hold down the on/off button for about 45 seconds.
3, Re-insert batteries.
4, Restart camera.

It worked for me.

Vtech Kidizoom camera. Have changed batteries but unit is not even switching on. Son has had for just over a year and it has been dropped several times.


Try cleaning the battery contacts inside the battery compartment. Do this with a cotton swab "dampened" in rubbing alcohol. You may also want to clean the battery contacts and the charging station if so equipt. Thanks, Dana

The battery life on my son's Vtech has been excellent. It has an automatic shut off function that keeps it from running continuosly when not in use.
