Question about Vivitar Vivicam 5388 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Vivitar 5388 II had taken a picture and the lens will not retract. I had no other problems prior to this. The camera will not turn on now or do anything. The lens is still out and nothing is happening.

Hi cda_graham
Usually it is a flat battery which causes this problem. You have to put in new battery once again and try.

Good luck

SOURCE: camera Vivitar 5388 manual says takes max 1G

It means anything bigger won't work in the ViviCam 5388. They may work in other cameras, depending on the camera.

Why doesnt my lens come out?? I just bought it and its not working


If it is still under warranty, return it.
This is more than likely a lens problem, and is not the easiest thing to fix.

The lens will not come out


Hi there.
Face the camera towards the floor and firmly tap the back of the camera while turning it on, this should hopefully free the lens so it can open, make sure that the batteries are fully charged or at least new.

Good luck and thamks for using FixYa!!

When I turn on the camera. the lens will not extend. The screen
will not show anything but a message, " date & time are already
programmed". No menu item works. Pictures cannot be taken.

Lens wont go back in


Probably grit in the mechanism. That happened to my Olympus, but after frequent re-trying eventually the problem cured itself. It is unlikely that a repair will be economic as the price of digital cameras is so low.

Camera lens wont open


I have an 8400 with the same problem. By accident, the chrome ring (around the lens) popped off. My lens worked after that! I replaced the chrome ring and it still works.
