It's because the batteries aren't strong enough. You are probably using alkaline batteries, which are not recommended for digital cameras because they drain easily and quickly. Use nimH batteries.

My camera is a 3815 model how do i put pictures on my computer please


Your best bet is to use the free program from Google called Picasa. You can download and install it for free from their web site. Once it is downloaded, double-click on the resulting file icon and follow the directions on the screen to install the software.

After you've installed the software, plug-in your camera to your computer using the provided USB cable. Picasa will recognize your camera and ask you if you'd like to import the pictures from your camera to your computer.

When i connect vivitar vivicam 3815 with usb cable to computer it does nothing. What do i do?


Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

No sound on Vivatar ViviCam3815 when video playback on camera and on computer from camera card.


The 3815 is designed primarily as a still camera. 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.

Vivitar ViviCam V8300 Digital camera the flash does not work! I have tried the menu in all flash modes, but still does not work, I believe the flash tube must be "blown", if this is so, can this...


I think it can be replaced.I don't know anything about the cost, but it shouldn't be that expensive, though.If you can fing a similar broken camera ..you could remove the flash from it and try and fix it to your camera. Cheers!

Choose your camera from the drop down menu (your camera is there) then choose your language click GO and it will bring you to the page you need to download the driver. Click below the "Driver" name and you will have the option to save or run. You might want to save the file to a flash drive in case you need it in the future. Then run it or just run it from the website.

This should solve your problem

No Cord


If you have an SD card inserted and formatted in the camera and you have an SD card reader/writer on your computer, then you you really don't need a cord.

You can order the cable from
http://www.bestlaptopbattery.com/b.cfm/Digital-Camera/VIVITAR/ViviCam-3815/Digital-Camera-Data-Transfer-Cable-.htm

But, I looked at the cable and Target sells universal camera cables and you probably will be able to get one there. Look at the picture below this is the cable you need.
