Question about Vivitar ViviCam 5385 Digital Camera

Digital Camera Troubles

I have a Vivitar Vivicam 5385 and after carrying it around with me all day, it suddenly stopped working. Whenever I try to turn it on it says "LENS ERROR" on the display and turns back off. I was wondering if there is anyway I can fix this (cheaply or without money) because I spent about $150 on it about 6 months ago and I don't have the money to buy a new one for a very long time. There doesn't appear to be any physical damage to the camera, so I'm clueless as to why it happened. Thanks for the help!!!! Walter :P

Not really a solution-- See what "bmw" commented on ie: the repair economics and the eBay solution (spares/repairs) I live in the u.k. and there is a eBay store supported by Vivitar (http://stores.ebay.co.uk/LMB-Direct_Digital-Cameras_W0QQcolZ4QQdirZ1QQfsubZ6660219QQftidZ2QQsclZ8QQtZkm )the prices seem attractive. there may be something like this in the States.

Walter, it's look like a problem with the servo motor.The lens unit can become damaged if it's opened while it was in your pocket, or in its case. The power botton was pressed without your knowledge and the lens attempts to extend, but was jammed and the servo motor or its transmition were damaged.This problem is correctable and should be done by an experienced technician. Of course, you should ask first for a repair cost quotation. Good luck ! urse, you should ask for a repair cost quatation

Will the vivitar vivi cam 5385 digital camera work without the sd card?

Yes, slightly better than a film camera without film. You can take one picture and review it, until you turn the camera off.

Can I use a 4GB SDHC memory card with Vivitar 5385 camera

How do I turn on the sound? The vivitar vivicam 5385 camera records to video but I cannot hear any sound. Is there somewhere it is turned on or off?

The ViviCam 5385 does not record sound to go with its videos. You can add a soundtrack using video-editing software on a computer, but you cannot record one on the camera.

I know this wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but there it is.

I have not got the Disc to download the software for my Vivitar 5385...any ideas..

Hello Tea22me,
The Driver to will depend on your Operating system.
For XP and above,you should not need any drivers for the camera. If you are still on windows 98, then please download the Mass Storage Device drivers from the following link:

Please let me know if this works for you.

Vivitar software for a MAC

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am sorry to inform you that the camera's driver is only suitable for PC. A MAC version of the driver does not exist.
Try and use a help of a friend with a PC to do what you need to do.
