The Vivitar Vivicam 5050 is notorious for eating up battery life. But first off, try to check for any corrosion inside the battery compartment. If there is none, I would suggest that you use alkalines or better yet, rechargeable batteries to make it more cost effective.

My charger does not work, I need a new one


Bear in mind that the Vivitar 5022 does not charge batteries. It uses standard AAA batteries. If you want to use rechargeables, you must charge them outside the camera using any AAA recharger such as those available at just about any department, electronics, or office-supply store.

Please try and see if you are able to get high rating cells with higher mAh specified on the battery. Check for rating that are more than the one's that is used presently or use a different type/composition of the battery like Li-Ion.

How do you charge a viviCam 5018 on the computer?


You don't. The 5018 uses standard AAA batteries. If you want to recharge them, you must do it outside the camera using a separate charger.

My vivicam 5050 camera says the battery's are dead even when there new battery's. is there anyway to stop this? the battery's work perfectly outside the camera i don't know what the problem could be....


It is possible that there is a fault, or that the battery connections in the camera are dirty or corroded, but digital cameras are famously demanding on batteries. You must use good alkaline batteries or better, a set of high capacity NiMH recharegables. Zinc or "long life" batteries just aren't up to the task.

New rechargeable batteries are supplied only partially charged. You need to charge them fully before use.

Just want to know how to charge it.


My Vivicam 5022 takes batteries, I tried charging it but it doesn't charge it just wastes my battery juice. Some AAA batteries are chargable maybe if you use those It'll charge but I'm not sure I've never tried it. Hope this help you!
