I had the same problem. My kids use the camera (without asking) all the time. So I thought they messed something up. Anyhow, I opened up the side compartment where the memory card goes. I noticed that two of the metal pins where the CF card goes were bent. I didn't really think anything of it. But then I decided, what the heck! I'll straighten them out. After I did that, the camera miraculously turned on. I'm not going to pretend to understand how everything works in this camera. But that solved my problem.

I've posted this elsewhere on this site but I can't find a simple way of linking directly to it, so I'll repeat it here: ================================= The powere switch is part of the mode dial assembly. Mode dial repair kits are often listed on eBay. Don't try the repair yourself unless you have some experience in dismantling (and more importantly re-assembling!) modern cameras - although given that getting an "official" repair is probably not economic it may be worth the risk. There are instructions for replacing the dial here http://myolympus.org/5050/modedial/ It's really not that difficult but patience and good eyesight are needed.

I have a Vivitar Vivicam 5050 black and I use 2 AAA batteries in it ,but it only lets me take a few pictures and the camera turns of wanting new batteries. Can you help?


The Vivitar Vivicam 5050 is notorious for eating up battery life. But first off, try to check for any corrosion inside the battery compartment. If there is none, I would suggest that you use alkalines or better yet, rechargeable batteries to make it more cost effective.

My vivicam 5050 camera says the battery's are dead even when there new battery's. is there anyway to stop this? the battery's work perfectly outside the camera i don't know what the problem could be....


It is possible that there is a fault, or that the battery connections in the camera are dirty or corroded, but digital cameras are famously demanding on batteries. You must use good alkaline batteries or better, a set of high capacity NiMH recharegables. Zinc or "long life" batteries just aren't up to the task.

New rechargeable batteries are supplied only partially charged. You need to charge them fully before use.

You can replace the battery with other new batteries, that way, you can tell whether it is the rechargeable batteries or the iron that are faulty.

Battery or the camera cradel


Parts or a new cradle are hard to find. I don't think Fuji makes them any more, although, depending on where you live, that country's distribution source may still have stock. What we sell our customers is a small charger which recharges the battery outside of the camera. They are about $10 US and plug into the USB port on any computer.

With new batteries already put in--no power


Are you using rechargeable batteries, and have tried lots of different batteries? Also, sometimes rechargeable batteries fresh out of the package can be dead or have very little juice. Just a thought...Hard to say that's it though if you were having the same thing happen before...

Battery not recharging


All batteries die sooner or later. I believe you have a dead cell.

1) Find another machine that uses the same battery and try it or
2) try another battery or
3) Give up and buy a new battery.

Good luck.
