Question about Vivitar V3800N 35mm SLR Camera

1 Answer

Internal LED inside camera.

There is a problem with the LED reading inside my vivitar v3800N. It usually varies between being all (+) or all (-) in the same conditions. When the lens cap is on, and I look inside, the readings jump. With this the pictures on the film don't process (probably because the camera isn't set to the correct aperture). With me being a beginner in photography clas I depend heavily on this function.

Vivitar v3800N battery holder missing

rcv7,

this camera has at least two different names that i know of (phoenix, vivitar ) .The battery covers are the same.
most camera repair shops have repair manuals with part numbers from the manufacturer. the only other way is to take a cover to a machine shop and have them make some from aluminum. we had this done for the pentax spotmatic when parts were no longer available.
