    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.

Worked fine put new battery in changed nothing wont work just clicks at relay box


The new battery was charged before you put it in? Or you just assumed it was charged?
When was the last time everything ran fine? yesterday, or half a year ago? because in a long period, lots of things could have corroded or just got defect.

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.

Most opticals do not track on smooth white surfaces. It needs textures or color. Try pressing the "CONNECT" button on the bottom of the mouse and on the remote sensor.
