Question about Vivitar ViviCam 8018 Digital Camera

1 Answer

The battery chamber has broken off and been like that for at least 6 months. I have only owned the camera since June 2010. Will my warranty of one year still cover me? More importantly: Where do I send my camera to get repairs done? The information on my Quick Start Guide is no longer in use.

The warranty will cover the battery chamber, I would take it back to the store and let them deal with it, since they sold you the product in the first place and let them know you are not happy with the purchase and that you expect them to take care of the problem. I find you get more prompt service than if they try and say it is the manufactures problem, don't let them sway you. When you call the manager out, the last thing they want is bad publicity especially when you have prospective buyers going shopping, I think you will do far better this way under the circumstances.

Replace battery and alternator 2x in 6 months


Get a cheap multimeter and test for drain, sometimes it is the starter, check the battery at all off, and running, your parts I hope are warrantied have them both tested and checked, The starter and or coil can cause weird electrical issues and a bad ground could be causing everything to work harder. You need an honest mechanic who cares about solving the problems.

Olympus SP-310 purchased June 2006. Accidentally touched a regular USB (non-Olympus) to the camera's USB port. Now it won't power up or anything. Is it fried, or can it be repaired? JT

Hey Brigitta12,
Your camera should have a 1 year manufacturers warranty on it, and a Best Buy™ store should be able to send it out for repair under that warranty. You would have to bring it in to a Geek Squad® precinct at the store, and they should be able to send it out for service. Definitely do this before the date of purchase, and you will need a copy of your receipt which if you don't have the store in most cases can look up.

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

LED Power light turns on, but nothing happens


If you've only had it 6 months then I would suggest you contact the manufacturer for a warranty replacement. Their warranty period is 1 year so see what they can do.

I suspect if you write a cordial note to Sony they just might fix it even though it is a few days out of warranty. I personally have had extremely good service from Sony (Sony Germany that is).
