MY VIVITAR 550 DOES NOT CHARGE AND DOES NOT TURN ON. WHAT IS THE PROBLEM?


Most likely your Vivitar needs a new battery....if you've lost your a/c adapter-you can use a standard USB cable to charge your camera. Plug the smaller end into your Vivitar & the larger end into your turned on PC/laptop & it'll charge the battery.

Replacement power cable required to charge vivitar dvr 550 camcor


Hi Trevor
From what you describe it sounds like you just need a mini USB type charger, readily available off ebay, heres one for instance http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/HTC-Mobile-Phone-New-Mini-USB-Mains-House-Charger_W0QQitemZ350254239595QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_MobilePhones_MobilePhoneAccessories_MobilePhoneChargers?hash=item518cc78f6b.
There are also USB to mini USB chargers available and in car too, all 5v output.
Hope that helps you.
Seadsons greetings to you

CAMERA IS NOT GETTING ON


The best way to have battery tested is going to a camera shop with repair facility with camera and power adapter, possibly when the repairman is in, and asking, "battery is gone on my camera, I am not sure if have to buy battery or power adapter", have them both quickly tested, and buy the faulty replacement part.

Can't find a Vivitar phone number to repair my 550


No, please. I was looking for the company-related repair center. I think an outfit by the name of Sakar is the official repair center, but time will tell.


Thanks but no thanks
