Question about Vivitar Vivacam 5399 Digital Camera

1 Answer

My Vivitar Vivicam 5399 is refusing to turn on. It has worked perfectly up until a couple of weeks ago, when it started to turn off at random moments, usually soon after I had turned it on. Now, it doesn't turn on at all. The batteries are brand new, and I have tried putting them in different ways round. I need it for a competition in two days time, can you help me?

Have you tried to see if the battery door is completely shut? This is usually the problem with many digital cameras with batteries. Clean the battery door and where the battery touches the metal of the door. Check to see if the door is completely flush with the camera body when you close it. I know for a fact that Vivitar cameras **** the juice out of batteries fairly quickly also. If you have the USB-cord provided with the camera, plug it into your computer and see if that holds a charge to your camera. If all else fails, call up Vivitar for further inquiry, your battery may be dead.
Good luck!

How can i put audio on my vivicam 5399?


The 5399 is designed primarily as a still camera, with some video features grafted on. As such it captures images, not sounds. You can add a soundtrack using video editing software on a computer, but you cannot record one on this camera.

The driver listed on the vivitar site for the model 5399 will likely work, but I suggest that you contact customer service at [email protected] for confirmation.

Sound in vivicam 5399


I think you have a hardware problem. So you must check it one by one. But try to focus at your camera mic that location in the under the chasing. You can clean it or check it alive or not and it connected exactly with your board. If you have done and the problem still same, may be you can bring it to service center. Cause it's have a lot off explanation, from schema and component electricity.

Camera new, used once, busy light stuck will not do anything


I did not find a solution, fortunately as the camera was still within its warranty period of 1 year, we are arranging to return it to the store where it was purchased.

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
