Even if the battery dies, you won't lose your pictures. Did you get a CD with the camera? Usually, the owner's manual is on the CD. You can also go to the support section of the Vivitar website and download a copy of the manual and sometimes the software from there.
Check the battery, and make sure it's charged, and good. Next, make sure the battery contacts on the battery and inside the camera are clean (you can use a qtip and alcohol). The next thing to suspect is a broken switch, but that usually only happens after awhile. Here is a good web blog about your problem, and it has some things you can try: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/11/simple-fix-for-dead-cameras-that-wont.html
Good luck, and hope this helps.
did you put an sd memory card into it? this camera will not take pics without an sd memory card (it did not come with any memory to hold pics on the camera itself). the memory card needs to be inserted into the slot right next to the battery:)
I had the same problem but fixed it by following the camera's directions to re-format the SD memory. You will lose all pictures on the memory card so remember to first save your pictures to your computer.
i suggest to take backup of your photos regularly. then if you are using internal memory,format it regularly and you are using memory card also format regularly.
if your problem stil remain, it is possible that your memory card is defective, buy new one,Transcend advisable.
