VIVITAR DVR 545- CAN'T FIND ANYWHERE

I PURCHASED THE VIVITAR DVR 545 FROM HSN(HOME SHOPPING NETWORK) ON 7/5/08. I HAVE READ POOR REVIEWS ABOUT THE DVR 550 MODEL. I'M STILL WITHIN THE 30 DAY RETURN FOR REFUND PERIOD. I'M TRYING TO GET SOME INFORMATION ON THE DVR 545, SO I CAN MAKE A DECISION AS TO KEEP IT OR RETURN IT.
PLEASE HELP ME. WHY CAN'T I FIND THIS ITEM ANYWHERE. I CALLED HSN- THEY DON'T CARRY THE ITEM ANY LONGER, SO I CAN'T READ ANY CUSTOMER REVIEWS.

    I thank you for your assistance. I suppose if I took the time I could have located this item. Truth is- I don't have the time. I didn't expect such a quick response.
    Does my purchase only cover this problem. Can I continue to post different problems, or does the 9.99 cover correspondence up until the point I accept solution? I wonder if I will get an answer to this comment/question??

  • kmflorig Aug 02, 2008

    I am very happy I found this site after googling the DVR 545. This is an excellent resource. Let me ask the expert - Would you return this DVR?

  • kmflorig Aug 02, 2008

    coolguy008- please respond!!!!

    The 1st solution you offered me - the website has NO CUSTOMER REVIEWS ON THE DVR545!!!!

    AT FIRST GLANCE, IT LOOKED AS THOUGH IT HAD HUNDREDS OF REVIEWS. IT DOESN'T!!!

    WHAT HAPPENS IF I WANT TO CHANGE MY MIND AND "NOT ACCEPT" THE SOLUTION. CAN WE PLEASE REVISIT MY INITIAL PROBLEM?

    PLEASE RESPOND ONE WAY OR THE OTHER.

    THIS WAS MY FIRST TIME. I ACCEPTED YOUR SOLUTION WITHOUT FIRST FULLY LOOKING INTO YOUR SOLUTION. CAN YOU PLEASE FORGIVE MY NOVICE MISTAKE AND COME BACK AND HELP ME!!

    PLEASE MAKE THIS ONE TIME EXCEPTION- IF THAT'S WHAT THIS IS.

    your help would be most appreciated!!

    One last thing- I just saw your answer, advising me to definately return this camera.

    Could you please recommend another DVR that takes still pics as well. I really don't care about the mp3 player option. I paid $129.00 on HSN -billable in 4 monthly installments. The 545 came with memory card 1GB as well. Could you look at HSN website please. This way I can continue to pay in installments. I paid with a debit visa card, as I don't have any credit cards. I promise I won't ask you any more questions about the vivitar DVR 545(unless of course I'm allowed to). I'm not sure how far the $9.99 goes.

    This has been a wonderful experience. I will definately use the support and resources fixya.com again



    thanks again.

  • kmflorig Aug 02, 2008

    Thanks,

    DO NOT NECESSARILY NEED MP3 PLAYER.



    FEATURES DESIRED:



    1. must take still pics as well as movie

    2.would like it to come with case and memory card.

    3.would like to be less than $200

    4. would like to pay in installments with my visa debit card.- as you can do on HSN and with certain items on QVC.

    5.The item can be more than $200 if i can pay as described above.

    6. would like it to be small like the 545.

    7. must be user friendly. I've never owned a camcorder.



    The features that is are a must are the still pics, the small size and the quality

    I want to be able to take on vacation to capture good quality memories. Also want to be able to use everyday if I want.

    If you need to know anything else let me know.

    You're all right coolguy008

    look forward to your recommendations

    Thank you so much,

    kmflorig

  • kmflorig Aug 03, 2008

    TO: coolguy008 or whoever posted the last two comments to me on Aug 2- regarding a alternative camcorder recommendation:



    I clicked on both links you provided. Each one displays a noninformative webpage ( displays the option to request QVC cust. service)



    It looks as though there were 2 camcorders on QVC's website that you recommended.

    Would you be kind enough to provide the item #'s for each of those camcorders?

    I can simply get to information with the item #.

    Thanks guys, you really do go above and beyond. Great work. I will definately recommend this site to other people.

    I will continue to look forward to receiving your recommendations.

    thanks,

    kmflorig

I purchased a Vivitar DVR action camera last June 2014 . Today 2/28/15 I used it for the first time . Got home to play back the video on my computer and it won't turn on at all . Charged it up for a couple...


The lower end dvr action cameras made by Vivitar got bad reviews and were poor performers and didn't last 3 days in some cases; you didn't mention the model you have...anyhooo

Perhaps the re-chargeable batteries have met their end-of-life date and need to be replaced; can you turn on the camera using the charger cable while it is still plugged into the wall outlet?

How do i find my gps ? When i saw review on hsn they said app was on the tablet but i cant find it.


GPS Navigation is built into Google Maps. If your tablet is running Android KitKat, in Google Now say "navigate to" and either the name of the location or the address you wish to go to. You can also type the address into the Maps search bar.

I want to upload a video to my macbook pro for an iMovie, but it says I need a Fire Wire...Is it possible to connect my Vivitar DVR 410 to a FireWire cable?


As a tech, I found FireWire cables to be vastly unreliable, but if you just have to have one, do NOT scrimp. Get one that is heavy duty. The thicker the cable, the better. Avoid flexing the cable near the connectors if at all possible.

Hi I,have a Vivitar DVR550,and need a new recharger for it. when I,but when I,put my model in the vivitar support page it does not have the model number in the list.There is nothing wrong with my camera...


Go here:

http://www.amazon.com/VIVITAR-DVR-545-DVR-550-DVR-550G-CAMCORDER/dp/B002RN6DO0/ref=sr_1_64?ie=UTF8&s=photo&qid=1260903217&sr=1-64

You can read the specs of exactly what type of charger is needed, or just purchase it.

Vivitar DVR 550 was a well known model in the UK. but the company Sakar bought the Vivitar comapany out. However, the Vivitar site still exists, but not much support for the DVR 550 is provided. I would recommend e-amiling them by visiting www.vivitar.com

Good Luck

Vivitar DVR 545 - Is this going to work with my MacBook?


I have a VIvitar DVR 545 I can not find out how to recharge the rechargable battery



I just bought this camera and had the same problem.

How DO you charge the battery???!!!

Here goes:
Open the box the camera came in and you should find a little rectangualr black box and a 3-pin plug.
Ignore the other stuff unless you think you may need it (depends what country you're in and what your mains supply wall socket fittings are). Take a close look at the little rectangualr black box and you'll see a slot in it. That's where your battery goes! Remember the battery must be taken out of the camera and slotted into this box! Make sure you align the battery correctly to the litle pins inside the box.
The Vivitar DVR 545 uses a sort of mobile phone/cell phone battery.You must take the battery OUT of the camera. Now you have slotted the battery into the box you connect the 3-pin plug to the box and then insert the plug (attached to the box) into your wall mains supply socket. The box will light up and you'll see a red light. Once this light turns green your camera battery is charged!

RE-INSERT THE BATTERY INTO THE CAMERA.

The whole charging procedure for the DVR 545 is ridiculous but there it is! By the way one drawback about having to remove the battery from the camera to charge it is that you will lose all or most of your camera settings. remember to reset video and photo settings - resolution, flash etc., etc.

Also a word of caution:
The Vivitar DVR 550 is unusual in that the battery is charged using the USB port. If you also happen to have a DVR 550 do NOT attempt to charge the Vivitar 545 using the Vivitar DVR 550 USB charger cable!

You will destroy your DVR 545 in seconds!!!!
