The camera "thinks" it's connected to a TV. We had the same problem. My wife used a bobby pin to "trick" the camera into thinking it was being disconnected from the TV by probing the pin into and out of the TV connector on the side.

    I have the same problem but has not been able to fix it with a bobby pin or a paper clip. Any other suggestion?

How do i charge up tthe kiddizoom camera for my daughter ?? it came with a usb lead that links up to computer and one other lead to connect up to television


The Kidizoom uses four standard AA batteries. You may use disposable alkalines or rechargeables. If you choose to use rechargeables, you much charge them using a separate charger. The Kidizoom is not a battery charger.

Changed battery won't turn on


Try inserting a tooth pick into the reset hole found just below on-off button and slightly to the left. Apparently the camera requires a reset after batteries have been changed. Our problem after resolving this problem is now the camera doesn't always stay on, i.e., turns off by itself.

My daughter's Kidizoom won't turn on - I have replaced the batteries and it makes no difference - I have checked the batteries in another console and they are fine. Any ideas?


I initially thought my batteries were dead, too. Try inserting a tooth pick into the reset hole. It can be found below the on-off button and slightly to the left. Apparently after battery changes, the unit needs to be reset. This worked for me.

Vtech kidizoom camera will just freeze while you are operating. Somewhere I read, if you hit the reset button, it will then work. This is true, but the camera freezes multiple times an hour. I then have to...

When i insert an sd card the vtech kidizoom camera wont turn on at all.


I am not a tech wiz but have just managed to put the card in my daughters camera! Normal SD card tight fit,it looks like it needs to go all the way in but doesnt. Either you have it in wrong or wrong card? Metal bits down! When I turned it on you then have to go to the tools sign to switch to memory card .Hope this helps.

Vtech kidizoom camera does cannot find SD card


I had similar problem. In windows i formatted the SD card as 'FAT' rather then 'FAT32' (right click on card and select format) and that made the camera recognise it!

Vtech kidizoom camera


We had the same issue. After turning on, nothing on the view screen and the buttons didn't work. The camera could turn on, the turn on screen and sound happened and we cold turn off (show off screen and sound)...even after changing batteries. It was like that for a week.

I found it had to do with TV connector slot. Thinking back, my daughter had been playing with the TV connector right before it stopped working. I took a small hair pin and put it in the TV connector slot, lightly wiggled it and the camera sprung back to life. I'm guessing the camera hardware was acting like it was still plugged in...hence turning off the view screen.

Anyways, hope that helps someone.
