Question about Vivitar DVR 840XHD Digital Video Recorder
Unfortunately, there is a circular focusing ring in the lens assembly that can get jammed by dust, lint, sand, etc. You can try to blow it out and free it up, however, this requires partial disassembly of the unit. I would take it in to a camera repair shop, and see what they would charge to just check it out, then go from there.
You can gently try to bump the camcorder, in hopes of freeing up the lens, but other than that, it will have to be taken apart.
There are videos on YouTube that show how to do a lot of things, if you go look around there. You may not find your exact model, but you will find a similar item.
Good luck, thanks for using FixYa, and hope this helps.
