    I am having the same problem. Replacing the battery is probably the only solution. However the battery is quite expensive ranging from $20 to $30 dollars even over the internet when you add S&H. You may want to retire this camera and buy one that uses inexpensive AA batteries. A comparable camera can be had for around $70 more or less and prices are slowly dropping on even better cameras. Good Luck!!!

My charger does not work, I need a new one

Bear in mind that the Vivitar 5022 does not charge batteries. It uses standard AAA batteries. If you want to use rechargeables, you must charge them outside the camera using any AAA recharger such as those available at just about any department, electronics, or office-supply store.

Card indicates memory error what can be done to correct this problem and also save dictation already on there ?

Hi cazpell,

If you're encountering a memory error, it is often caused by the battery pack. Battery packs included with the DS-4000 are rechargeable battery packs. This problem is likely to happen on the DS-4000 when a NEW battery pack is being used. The battery pack out of the box does not hold enough charge to power up the recorder through its initial start-up procedure.

1. Please turn off the recorder.

2. Remove the battery pack and memory card for 20 seconds.

3. Install the memory card in the card slot.

4. Install new AAA batteries before you turn ON the DS-4000.

5. Your battery pack may also not be fully charged. All new battery packs must be fully charged from 2.5 to 3 hours before first time use.

6. For the first week to 10 days of use, it is recommended to recharge the battery pack as often as possible. This will exercise it and improve its charge-hold capacity.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Put battery in press on button nothing happens dose it need memory card in as well ?

This camera has 16MB of internal memory, so no card is required to make it work.

This has a rechargeable lithium battery. Rechargeable batteries don't last forever. Lithium batteries in particular can fail early if they are allowed to become totally discharged.

Are you sure the battery is charged? You don't say if this is the first time you have used this camera- if it is new, the battery will have to be charged before you use it. They are supplied new in an uncharged state.

I own a vivitar T 324 and go through batteries constantly. Do I need to use a special battery for the camera to last longer than about a dozen pics?

Some of the early Vivitars using AA batteries had a reputation for going through them quickly. The best batteries for these cameras are high capacity NiMH rechargeables. These can last longer than alkaline types, per charge, and of course are reusable, so they work out a lot cheaper. Look for ones marked 2300mAH or 2700mAH, and get two sets so that one can be on charge while using the other. You can buy sets of these with a charger quite cheaply these days.

Can you charge a vivitar camera on a computer

It depends on the model. The 5022 uses AAA batteries, disposable or rechargeable. However, the camera does not incorporate any charging circuitry; if you use rechargeable batteries you'll have to recharge them outside the camera.

Vivitar vivicam 4000 replacement battery required.


Here's one I found that works:

(Kodak part # 8499741)

Don't recall where I found the info that it works as a replacement, but I've been using it successfully since July 2007. Don't know yet if I'll experience the same "memory" problem I had with the original battery.

Good luck!

Camera will not stay on

are you using rechargable batteries if not use them the normal batteries do not last long and to be honest are no good with digital cameras. if you are using rechargable batteries let them charge for at least 5 hours before you use them
