All of a sudden, after about 10 months of sporadic use, the camera has gone dead. Nothing happens when the on-switch is pushed.
Is Vivitar's customer service/warranty any good? I can't call them until tomorrow as they are closed on weekends.

Hi, I have a Z35 that wiont turn on I know the battery is good so I tried connecting USB to PC to see what happened---nothing, then I tried gentley pushing the USB at camera end very slowly into connector and about half way in the cais mera flashed up and I coud take pictures. However with the USB pushed full into camera socket the camera went dead again. I know this isnt a solution but it indicates camera will work , Im now lokking at battery comparment connectors to see if thweres a problem.
Polaroid has not manufactured film for 600 cameras in about 5 years now. The only current source is The Impossible Project, which gives 8 shots per pack, black and white images only, and they tend to fade rather quickly. You can find and order online by searching the name. The Polaroid versions available are no longer really usable because the batteries are drained, film has expired and chempaks have oxidized.
The battery packs in these are integrated into the film pack and not replaceable separately.
Try the battery on another appliance to confirm the charge capacity or make sure there is voltage and current available on the battery. If so check the terminals on the camera, open and clean the battery terminals. If not there is a fault within which need that you need to open the camera. it can be a fusible link, fuse or a protection on the main board.
if the camera wont turn on remove the memory card and make sure your pictures are transfered. Try using regular disposable batteries. Also when trying to turn it on try holding down the power button for 5 seconds. If it still doesnt turn on coud be a broken switch connection.
My camera problems have been resolved, although I can't attest to how or why. After about six hours, as I prepared to pack off the little guy to the manufacturer, everything had gone back to normal. I'm left only to speculate that maybe the camera admitted some condensation from yesterday's frigid and wet weather which whacked out its electronic nervous system temporarily. I have no clue.
