I bought a replacement battery for my Vivtar 8300s today at Batteries Plus. If there isn't one near you, go to their website: Cost was $17.95; they may have to order it from their supplier in New York, but the battery is in their product list. It's Empire model BLI-315.

SOURCE: Camera lens stuck!

Hello Friend,
First i would let you know that the Brand Vivitar is one of low quality cameras, it's sad but it's true.
Now regarding the issue that you have with the lens, you probably drop it because this the only way to have the lens stuck. but anyway, to repair it it will cost you more than a new one. and again i suggest to buy a branded camera like Canon,Sony,Nikon,Panasonic ... these are top quality cameras and you will not have any problem for life except if you drop it ;)
Best Regards,

Their is a button on there that looks like a lightning bolt. Push that button until the third icon on the screen is a lightning bolt with an 'A' in the corner. Take a picture and it should flash.

Camera turns on, but will not stay on.

You could try formatting your SD/Memory card and see if that fixes it.

Hope that helped :)

How do i set the volume for the vivitar vivicam 5022

The ViviCam 5022 does not record sound when recording video. You can add a soundtrack using video-editing software on a computer, but you cannot record one on the camera. Thus, with no audio capability, there is no volume control.

Sorry if that wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but that's the way it is.

How do i turn on the flash? vivitar vivicam 5022

Make sure you're not in the macro mode. There's a slide switch on the end of the camera, near the SD card slot. Set this switch to the mountain position.
Also bear in mind that the flash is for still photos only, not for videos.

This is a Manufacturing problem.It has also happened to me and Vivitar said there is nothing I can do to fix it and should just let them replace it. A lot of Vivitar cameras have this problem as well as many others that are usually not the consumers fault. Just a glitch in the technology. I alone have gone through four Vivitar cameras in the last six months. The best thing to do is contact Vivitar directly. This is there website: It is best to see if you can find the number for technical support. To see if they can give you a refund or replace it for you. I hope this helps. -Richard

Flash will not turn on on my vivicam 5022

This happens when you are in close-up mode. Move the switch on the side of the camera to show the 'mountains' - this will fix it.

Have a Vivicam 5022 - it keeps shutting off as soon as it is turned on. has fresh batteries and the membory card is empty. how do i fix?

1st, are you using high powered batteries? (NiMH), if so have you tried powering it up via mains power to see if its an issue with the batteries or the camera in general.
