    I'm having the same problem with my 5100 camera, it's now about a year and a 1/2 old. I recieved it for christamas used it twice and it stopped working, I took it back to the store where it was purchased and they stated they hadn't sold one of these in about two years which I know is not true. I sent numerous emails to Vivitar and recieved no reply now the warrenty is up and I still have a brand new camera that doesn't work.

    The same exact thing --one day was working fine and the next day----not working at all. Camera is about a year old and was used just a few times.

All three:

When this happens, not much can be done.

Sell it on a site such as Ebay for parts and or as is.

At least you may get a few dollars, and may be able to help someone else.

Whenever I put new batteries into my Canon Powershot A480, I get the same thing - I get the 'Low Battery' red flashing light. And Then as I go to take a picture it shuts off and says ; Change The Batties....


I've got the same problem with 2 A 480 canon. I put in NiMH batteries and they work fine. If you put in slightly drained used batteries they work!! Nimh batteries are 1.2 volts and Alkaline are 1.5 volts. There is definitly a problem with this camera. I measured the voltages of brand new batteries 1.51 volts each and they didn't work. I put in some old batteries 1.4 and 1.42 volts and they worked fine.

Put in new batteris and nothing happens. They are


First, make sure that the "new" batteries have a full charge. If you don't have a meter to check them with, try using them to power something else. Also, if using rechargeable batteries, make sure that they are the correct type for the camera. NiCd batteries will not work well in a camera that calls for Ni-MH batteries.

If the batteries are OK, your problem may be due to corrosion on the battery connections inside the camera. Remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts with a clean soft cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a fine wire brush, steel wool, or fine sandpaper). Remove any specks that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then clean and reinstall the batteries.

The above clears about 90% of power-up problems, and I hope it works for you. If not, your camera may have a more serious problem that requires repair by a camera shop or the manufacturer.

Camera won't turn on.


Make sure the battery contacts are clean. The rechargable batteries looses their charge even when they are not in use. It is important to fully charge the first time the rechargable batteries.

Empties batteries in 2 minutes


please insert a new pair of batteries and check weather the camera starts in proper manner. does the flash charges. normally even if the camera operates and switches on in proper manner but if there is any problem in the flash section the flash does not fires or do not charge. and if there is a short circuit in the flash section that will result in warming and consuming up the batteries in no time. the heatin of the batteries itself indicates that there is a short curcuit in the camera.
