Re: Battery for ViviCam 7388s
If you want to store more pictures on your 1 GB card you will have to set the camera to take lower resolution pictures. The only reason you need high resolution pictures is if you plan on blowing them up to huge prints. If you are just looking to save standard 4X6 inch pictures 800X600 is plenty of resolution and it will hold a ton of them. If you want to get a bigger SD card the largest you can go with this camera is 2 GB. Any higher is labeled SDHC or High Capacity. This model is not rated for high capacity chips so do not buy one. A 2 GB SD will double the number of pictures you can take and If you select a lower resolution like 800X600 You will be able to take hundreds of pictures. As far as your battery life goes you have to turn off the camera when it it not in use. After reading up on this device I have read that is not that great when it comes to battery power. But for an inexpensive camera it takes wonderful pictures. If you do want to take a special photo that you plan to print out 8 1/2 X 11 then take those pictures in Highest resolution. But for your regular everyday pics choose the lower setting. Experiment until you find the settings that work the best for the different things you are trying to do. If you need more help feel free to contact me at geokohler @gmail.com If you send me your number I will call you for free. I'm a digital pro and I love to teach people how to get the most out of their camera. Please take the time to rate this answer a fixya and I will help you whenever you ask. PS. You should go buy a 2GB SD card You will still be able to use your 1GB too for extra storage. Don't buy any larger than 2GB, remember the High Capacity rule. Let me know if you need anything else George

Here are the steps for the no power problem: 1. Make sure you will install a new or fully charged battery/batteries into your camera. Please use lithium batteries Ni-Mh or rechargeable Batteries (2000 M.Amp or higher). 2. Clean the battery contacts. a. Remove the battery/batteries and the memory card from your camera, then wipe the battery contacts with a soft, clean cloth. b. Reinstall the battery/batteries into your camera 3. Turn on your camera without the memory card. (If it works then it?s your memory card that is faulty)
This issue is not with the battery. This is due to the misalignment of the camera lens. This is a delicate hardware problem. Hence,i would suggest you to take it to some professional or your authorized service center and get it repaired there only. Trying to repair it on your own might make the situation worse and would cost a lot money.
If you need more information on this. Please do write to use.
The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.
Try the following: 1). Check batteries whether they are fully charged. 2). Check with Battery terminal are clean. You can clean them with a ear bud using some alcohol or spirit. Wipe the battery terminal with a clean dry cloth. 3). confirm that the memory car slot/battery cover is securly closed. 4). Reload the battery several times. This will also remove poor contact between camera and battery terminals. 5).Check battery are loaded in the correct direction.
If the probem persists, you might need to take it to the service center.
