SOURCE: purchase price in Hong Kong and UK

Hi, I found some uk price, they are slightly more expensive, as the model is not distributed for retail, but they stay around £100, as this one here.

Let me know if you need more information.

Your camera does not have a built-in microphone. You need to spend more money on a camera to get sound.

SOURCE: brand new camera will not work

Can you return it or exchange it? That would be the best thing to do. I've bought stuff from Hong Kong, but found it doesn't take long before things start going wrong in some cases, depends on the item. There are some serious issues going on with this camera, and it wouldn't be worth the cost of having it repaired. Get your money back, if you can, and return it. Look for a name brand next time, at least you can get parts for them off ebay and the net. Good luck.

I have a VIVITAR DVR 518 camcorder. i bought it from PRICE DROP. i have hardly used it and now it has frozen. once it is switched on, i cannot get any button to function and to turn it off i must remove...


Hi

Sorry to hear about the problems you have with your Vivitar DVR-518.

Here are a few suggestions:

1. Check there is not dirt de-pressing any of the button. If one of the button is being pressed permanently none of the others will work

2. Remove the memory card and see if this fixes the problem

3. Try a new set of batteries

If all else fails contact Vivitar - www.vivitar.com

Hope one of these suggestions helps

Regards

David

How do i charge my olympus u790sw? keeps saying battery empty and will not charge


Depending on how old the battery is and what sort of life it's led it could well be due for a replacement. They are extremely cheap especially from Ebay and the newer batteries last much longer per shoot. I assume you have checked the output of the charger and that the lead from the charger to the camera are in good order. A friendly repair shop should take only a few minutes if you can't do it. It is possible for almost brand new batteries to die in action. So don't be surprised if you do need a new one. By the way, when buying from Ebay most of the Hong Kong dealers sell the batteries in pairs. This is the best way to buy them as everyone should carry a spare with them.
Don't be concerned about buying from Hong Kong I've bought literally thousands of items and found I've had more hassles with local sellers than those from Hong Kong. And the batteries are about a quarter what you pay for them at home. Plus they are not rejects or duds. Those days are just about over.

Vivitar vivicam 6330s battery charger


go to ebay and search for a Li-40b charger. they are generic chargers but they work for these batteries. I have the 6330s and I ordered mine a couple weeks ago and got it yesterday. The reason it takes so long is cause they come from hong kong but that means they are cheap too :) this is the one i got. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=160185103402&ssPageName=MERCOSI_VI_ROSI_PR4_PCN_BIX_Stores&refitem=160186709149&itemcount=4&refwidgetloc=closed_view_item&refwidgettype=osi_widget
