Question about Vivitar ViviCam 4100 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Camera went dead

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.

Lens on my S7000 doesn't retract when switched off - now permanently extended - and camera dead

This is going to require service / repair at the shop, not something you will be able to correct.

I have a Polaroid OneStep and am not sure if my film battery is dead or my camera is broken. I haven't used the camera in about 6 months, and at that time it was mostly working fine. Sometimes nothing...

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.

Hi My daughters Vtech Camera just stopped working suddenly have tried to change the batteries Put brand new one in the right way up and there is nothing happening at all have tried to press reset button...

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.

My batteries went dead and camera shut off. Now I

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.

I've had my Panasonic Lumix DMC LX3 for about just 3 months. It has worked like a charm until today, when suddenly several things have gone whack, as if the calibration died. I just uploaded pix to my...

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.

Pentax IqZoom 700 film camera E9 error shutter failure Hi, I have a pentax iqzoom 700 that I'd like to repair myself but E9 appears on the lcd screen after inserting a new battery and powering on. Other posts mention this is a shutter failure. When turning on, the zoom lens extends and the outer shutter covering the outside of the lens opens. I've read tutorials that say you can sometimes fix a shutter error by causing a power outage during a shot and opening the battery door while taking a picture, but this isn't possible in my case because no shot is fired when the shutter is pressed, likely because the camera recognizes the shutter failure. I've also watched videos on how to repair leaf shutters and mechanical shutters, but the manual for this camera states the shutter is an AE between-the-lens shutter so I have no idea how to disassemble and fix this sort of thing. Looking thru the lens both thru the front of the camera and in the film compartment on the other side show a dark covering behind the lens even while the outer shutter is open covering the outer lens, which I'm assuming is the between-the-lens shutter. Ideally, I'd like to repair this myself, as there's nothing lost if I screw up and it's not worth it otherwise to take it for repair. I'm a complete novice with absolutely no prior knowledge of taking apart things, but I can follow directions so any suggestions or links to videos/tutorials would be very much appreciated Side note that I've searched the web extensively and have yet to find anything specific to repairing this camera model, and I'm not knowledgeable enough to adapt a tutorial for a different camera to this model Thanks in advance!
