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!

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.

Camera wont come on


If it is still in warranty, it is better to send it for repair with canon or with the extended warranty company.

If it's not in warranty, then you have to send it for diagnostics and repair.

The reason for won't power on may be a number of reasons:

1. Damaged switch that senses when the battery door is closed (or a broken tab in the battery door that presses the switch);
2. Damaged switch that senses when the CF memory door is closed (or a broken tab in the memory door that presses the switch);
3. Defective DC/DC power board;
4. Defective main board

Diagnosctis and repair of this problem requires a repairman with skills and tools to do it properly.

Depending of what is broken and to whom you send your camera for repair, the repair cost may be in in the range of $100.00 - $200.00.

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,
