20 Most Recent Vivitar ViviCam 5340s Digital Camera Questions & Answers

Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

You should know that if take pictures against the sunlight it will be misty. About the batteries, if those are NiCad batteries, it has a problem called memory effect. If you recharge the batteries before it's completely empty, the next time the battery shows it needs recharge when it reaches that level. So recharge the batteries only when they are fully empty. You will have to replace the battery now.

You can't charge the camera with the USB cord because the camera dosn't have a charger built inside. You need to use an external charger. Here is a link showing several sites that have battery chargers for this camera.

Your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your batteries may need to be replaced, or the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

Try going to your main menu and set it to set to factory defaults. This may solve your problem.

how long have you been using your battery?. I suggest you try it with a new battery but make sure it has warranty.

change the storage location to mem card on the settings...!

Make sure that the battery is propperly inserted. The battery port isnt keyed to only accept the battery the right way around so its easy to inadvertently insert the battery so that there is no terminal contact. The result would be what you decribe. Simply turn the battery over and insert as indicated by the picture inside the port.

Reformat the card, preferably on your computer.

Almost always works. If not, the card could be too large, as they will not work with over 2 Gb.

If under 2 Gb, and refortmatting doesn't work, test the card in another camera; test another care in this camera.

Select Mode;
Then Play;
Then Ok - or use a card reader and view on your computer.

Where can i get myself a new docking station for my vivitar digital camera? I lost it whilst moving house. I am not totally sure of the model but i know it is a 2005 model?

Vivitar ViviCam... | Answered on Sep 21, 2008

Seems it could be a firmware problem You will have to go to the Vivitar Technical Support Team, on the Vivitar web site.

Vivitar ViviCam... | Answered on Jun 15, 2008

The only solution I have found is that, this camera you have can only hold up to 512 MB of memory. So if you bought something higher then, you got to return the card. Same problem with me, luckily I still have the reciept.
