Question about Vivitar DVR-390H Digital Camera
These cameras are notorious for overheating. The one that I have usually takes alittle while before it overheats, but when it does the screen freezes and i can only turn it off by pulling out the battery. The reason these cameras were only produced for about half a year is because of this problem. There is a major design flaw with the camera. If you look at it closely, you will not see proper ventilation areas. If you have noticed, after using the camera for maybe 10-15 minutes the back of it gets EXTREMELY hot. My best suggestion is to try to keep it away from ANY external heat sources when using it. Also, do not use it for prolonged amounts of time. The only thing I use mine for now is a backup harddrive because of the 20 GB harddrive on it and I don't have to worry about overheating because as soon as I am done uploading files, I turn it off. So if nothing else, you do have a pretty nice backup hard drive. Hope this helps!
