How do you turn the flash on? (with the vivitar vivicam 8018)


Your camera has a built in flash function which enables you to take photos when the light condition is not good.

1. Press the Up button. (for reference of buttons, please see the below figure mentioned)
2. Press the Up button once until you see the icon appear on the LCD screen. This indicates that the flash is forced on.
3. Press the Up button again to change to the auto flash function.
4. The icon will appear at the top of the LCD indicating that the auto flash is turned on and ready to use.
5. Press the Up button again to change from the auto flash to the red eye function.
6. The icon will appear on the LCD indicating that the red eye reduction function has been activated.
7. To turn off the flash function, press the Up button again until the icon is displayed on the LCD.

Note: A “Low Power” message will appear on the LCD screen, if you select the flash function when the battery power is insufficient. To continue using the camera with the flash, please change new batteries

Flash not discharging


its seems to me that the alignment of your flash setting in its cubicle has been disturbed, possibly by the camera being pressed in your bag. if you cant get it to operate normally, I suggest that you get it done professionally by Pentax.
The reason I am saying this, is cause firstly Pentax is good and branded camera. The settings and all teh mechanism's of this camera are very delicate and you will only damage something within it by forcing your flash out everytime you want to use it.

Flash


I am having the same problem. For this indicator, the manual states "Camera movement warning/flash charge". I'm guessing that the flash is no longer functioning. Note you can force the flash to OFF and camera will function without a flash.

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.

80000 snaps


I would think it implies the camera / flash / whatever is still functioning after that many operations (pictures)... of course everything wears out eventually, film, digital cameras and flash too. In this year I may hit 15,000 pictures with my FZ10... I expect the mechanical (zoom, doors, buttons & switches) will last several years. My vivitar 283 flash units may hit 2,000 flashes this year.
