Question about Vivitar ViviCam 5100 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Repair I have a Vivitar 5100/4xzoom. The battery door got broken and I sent it in for repair. They sent it back-finally,unrepaired,& said they needed my phone number so they could call me with estimate...why didn't they just send a postcard? I had to ship it back another time,another $8.00. This was in April. I have heard nothing. Today I tried to call the phone number and was told it wasn't issued.

I had the same problem and took it into the dealer who firmly taped the battery door shut to get battery contact and told me that a new door would cost more than a new camera. It worked!

How do you open up a bpr40 to get to a broken circuit board in radio ? It is my personal radio that Motorola service center said was unrepairable so what the heck ? Thank You !


You can use two small screw drivers, one on each side of the bottom of radio. Insert and lift up. Knobs have to be removed. They pull off.[can be difficult] Use a chassis removal tool[6685666D01] that can be ordered from motorola. If the repair shop sent it back unrepairable,you can try sending to motorola.[$134.00 flat rate repair] or just cut your losses. Would not invest any money because it is an inexpensive radio.

Latch on battery cover broken. Nikon L22 red I have sent it back to Nikon and they want nearly as much to repair as it cost! So much for warranty.


If you want to do the replacement yourself, you can order a new battery cover from

Battery door broken


The best is to piece up the broken parts and GLUE them using good super glues available in the market. If the broken pieces are beyond repair then the door must be sourced from Vivitar.
If an old one can be found from any dealer it will be worth a try.

My sony world radio icf-sw100 wont turn on and i just put new batteries in it


Chances are the metalic "dome" under each button in question has rotated slightly out of position. This happened with the Sync button on my post-1997 SW100. Sunddenly no Sync function and nothing about Sync on the display. The problem is easily remedied if you're into radios. literally. (A friend fixed mine.) I know several individuals who might be willing to repair your unit. E-mail me for names? paul-diehl[at character]uiowa.edu

WARNING: VERGE OF RANT

Whatever your do, DO NOT SEND YOUR UNIT TO THE SONY REPAIR CENTER IN LAREDO. I sent mine in for the Sync repair and had it returned unrepaired, with "corrosion" given as the reason. I then had an electrical engineer take a look and he correctly diagnosed the problem in 90 seconds. Took him another 30 minutes to complete the repair, which required no new parts or soldering. By the way, he found NO CORROSON WHATSOEVER anywhere in the receiver. And by the way number two, SONY LAREDO returned my receiver with major dmagage to the chassis. After three frustrating months, I was finally able to get LAREDO to replace the part of chassis they'd broken. (They 'd counted on me not taking before and after photos.) Totally incompetent, totally unresponsive, totally dishonest (they said they'd ordered a new circuit board from Japan when they hadn't), just north of outright fraud. AVOID LAREDO AT ALL COSTS.

Vivitar 7100 damaged lcd scren


Yes. You can get them (to fit yourself) from the manufacture or you can simply take it in to an outlet (like curries etc) or a repair center and they will fix it or have it sent away.

However, it may be cheaper to buy a new camera than to have the screen fixed. You can also get an older broken 7100 with a working screen and remove it and replace your broken one...tho if you are not up to doing that I would take it to a repair center.

Hello shrnj113:

Which door are you talking about?
If it is the lens slide cover, then it needs repair.
If it is the battery cover, then you need repair and parts.

Take care,
