I cannot switch the camera on

sure your batteries are still tip top?
Try two new AA sized NiMH rechargeable batteries or if you have some new alkaline batteries, put them in. the alkaline batteries won't last long, but it it could hint if the camera is still working and worth buying new rechargeables.
AA manganese (Zinc-Carbon) batteries cannot be used with this camera.

The camera wont swich on and dont know how.


Here is a quick start manual.

It uses 2 R6 (AA) batteries.

You insert two batteries in the base, turn the dial on the top to the [camera] icon then switch on using the [power] button.

Hope this helps.

How do i charge my camera

Your vivicam takes AA batteries, which are widely available. Use good quality ones, such as Duracell M3 or Energizer lithiums, as some cheap brands don't last very long.

If your AA batteries are rechargeable, they will say so on the side. Then you'll need an appropriate charger (Photo stores can supply, if required - just show them what you are trying to charge).

Here's the user manual, for reference: VIVICAM 3710

Paste this into your browser, and enter the four numbers on screen (a validation screen to stop "scrapers" stealing all their manuals)

Kodak Z812 shuts off automatically

It is a high-powered camera, also knows as a GREAT camera. Use CRV-3 lithium duracell batteries. I have the same camera and the same "problem", but when I use that battery it lasts forever.

My Canon power shot S2 IS does not detect the batteries

There is a battery charge level sensor in the DC/DC internal converter board.

It seems that just started to fail such board.

You can try with other brand or type of AA batteries.

If still you have the same problem, you will need to have replaced the DC/DC converter board on your camera. This means a Camera repair shop service on it.

Vivicam 8400

I have a ViviCam 8400 and have the same problem UNLESS I buy Duracell Power Pix or Energizer Titanium batteries. These cost more than the regular grade AA batteries, but when I used brand new regular batteries, the camera would turn on for 2 seconds then turn right off. Titanium or Power Pix batteries make the camera work fine. And, because they are made for digital media, they do allow you to use the camera for longer periods of time.
