When in the 'Camera' setting, push the left arrow on the camera to 'Auto' or 'On'. the flash should flash if it is dark enough. also, I don't think you can use the flash when making movies.

Left half screen is dark


Open your left eye ...
OK, just kidding. If your TV or its remote control has a Reset button you can press it twice to reset the TV to original factory conditions (but you lose all customised picture and sound settings). If the TV receives its signal from a cable box or DVR, try connecting a different device such as a DVD or Blu-ray player and play a movie disc. If the problem on your TV screen still exists that suggests the TV needs repair or replacement. If the picture is OK when playing a DVD movie that suggests that your cable box or DVR is faulty and needs replacing (usually free from the cable TV company).

Sounds like it could be the power supply. Try changing the brightness of the screen and changing picture modes like movie or standard. If this causes the flashing to change in severity, it will most likely be the power supply board

Can i charge my vivitar 850hd by plugging it in?


Yes. The 850W charges the battery via the USB port. You can charge it by connecting it either to a powered USB port on a computer or a wall outlet by using the supplied adapter (or equivalent).

My new vivitar dvr 410 wont take pictures - the screen says "card protect" is this camera broken or is there a secret to using it... Thank you! B


Take out the memory card and find a switch on it. You may have accidentally set the switch on the memory card to enable write protection. Switch it off and reinsert the card into the device, and it should be able to work now.

I cant use dsc h1 with strobe light


If you problem is that the double flash triggers the strobes early (on the first flash and the shot is made on the second flash - dark) you either:
1. Get a wire accessory to command the strobes
2. Put a simple external flash on top of the camera and use it to trigger strobes. If you don't need the light from this flash just point it up of backwards, it will still trigger the strobes. If it does not rotate, you can use tin foil. A very simple external flash will do, as the camera will flash only once with external flash.
