Question about Vivitar ViviCam X029 Digital Camera

3 Answers

I just bought the camera and am trying to charge it. I am not getting an LED light but instead a blue screen that says "MSDC" in white letters. I have checked the battery and storage disk positions and they seem fine. Help please, I need the camera for my child's 8th grade class trip to DC.

    The MSDC appears even when charging through the AC adapter. So, does that still mean the camera is thinking it is still a MSDC? However your definition of "MSDC" was very helpful and didn't make me sound silly for asking. I hope overnight charging will make all ok. Thanks!

Are you charging it by plugging it into a computer? The "MSDC" you see usually means "Mass Storage Device Class", which basically means the computer is using the storage on the camera as a removable drive. This would usually happen when plugging a camera into the computer via USB. There is usually an AC adapter that comes with a camera, or a separate charger for just the battery. If there was no charger that came with it, the camera is probably still charging. If the camera is on, try turning it off and plugging it in. Remember, even if it shows "MSDC", it is probably still charging. Hope this helps!

Testimonial: "Didn't explain why the LED isn't on while charging. Too bad the directions do not mention how long the battery needs to charge for its first time."

It is charging by USB port using ac adapter, can also charge by computer USB port during picture uploads and downloads. Do you need an instruction manual.

My battery and memory card are in correctly, and it has been "charging for two days, but everytime I turn it on a blue screen that reads MSDC comes on and no matter what buttons I press nothing...


The MSDC simply tells you that the camera is connected to the computer. In order to use the camera to take pictures, you have to disconnect it from the camera.

Is my camera charging when plugged in with usb cord it has a blue screen and says MSDC?


The charge light on the back of the camera will light red while charging and go out when fully charged. Your camera should have also come with a separate battery charger if the above method doesn't work.

My vivitar will not come on a blue msdc screen and blinking red light


I just called the help desk. MSDC and a blinking red light means that it is charging. It takes 6 hours to charge and you are not to take disconnect it from the USB until it is fully charged. Once it is charged the blinking light will turn green.... not sure whether it will still be blinking or not. This is what the lady on the phone told me so I haven't been able to try it out yet, but I will update if I call again.

Blue Screen MSDC


You should only get that screen when it's charging on the wall charger or when it is hooked up to your computer via the USB cord.
