Et blue screen and message msdc on screen. cant get anything else. Will not turn on and screen goes off if unpluged. Have charged for 3 days. Vivitar Thanks


msdc stands for mass storage device. Try removing the card and battery...press all the buttons...leave it alone for 20 minutes...insert the card and then the battery...turn it on.

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.

Vivitar 8025 comes up msdc when i connect usb lead to my computer


It's supposed to do that, informing you that it's in mass storage mode. Once connected you control it from the computer, not the camera.

Vivicam 3720 cracked screen


Hi Terence,
I just posted a comment on this cam recently...
I bought a new cam and my vivitar is going spare mate.
As i suggested in my last comment, i am happy to give this away for free..
If ur hapy to pay whatever minimal postage it would cost, I would be happy to give youi my vivitar 3720, its rarely been used, (once last year for a 2week holiday)
Let me know if it would be of any use to you Terence..
I'm sure it's not worth spending any money on getting it repaired, given the cost of new cams now.....
I'd be hapy to forward mine on to you, i have no use for it anymore...
