I've just turned on the ViviCam 4100 after a month or so of not using it and the lcd shows just a grey/black blob and some thin horizontal and vertical colored lines. I've tried taking the batteries out for a short period, then putting them back in but the problem persists.
It should not make any difference how long you had not used it.Problem is may have you had either put camera near magnetic surface or strong metal or its LCD screen get dropped down. Your Problem is with cuircuit and not setting.

This sounds like a bad display on the laptop. Hook up an external monitor to the vga port on the laptop. You may need to toggle the display to output to the external monitor. This is generally accomplished by pressing the "FN" key + one of the F# keys. Look for an icon that resembles a monitor or it may say LCD. If the graphics display correctly on the external monitor, then you will need to replace the computer screen.
If you transfer the pics at pc, is the same condition? Black pics in pc? If yes, then isnt the LCD viewer, sound like a malfunctioning
CCD-image sensor. Rare, but possible problem with your LCD screenviewer... in both cases (LCD or CCD) this isn't a job that you could solve yourself; this wrong
images or abnormal colors, scratchy purple lines, blank or black pictures,
and/or black videos with good sound being recorded on the camera's flash

On the front of the camera there is a black "arrow" with silver on it which slides towards the name Vivitar ViviCam 4100. This opens the shutter and turns the camera on. Slide it back towards the words 4.0 Mega Pixels and it turns off.
Playing Back images/Video Clips on TV
You can also playback your images on a TV screen. Before connecting to any device, make sure to
select NTSC/PAL system to match the video output system of the video equipment you are going to
connect to Vivicam 5340s, then turn all connected devices off.
1. Position Vivicam 5340s on the cradle.
2. Match the docking connectors and carefully insert Vivicam 5340s
until it fits in place.
3. Connect one end of the A/V cable to the A/V terminal of the
4. Connect the other end to the A/V input socket of the TV set.
5. Turn the TV and Vivicam 5340s on.
6. Playback the still images/video clips.
The method of operation is the same as playing back still
images and video clips on Vivicam 5340s.
I hope this helps:)
