    I have an 8400 with the same problem. By accident, the chrome ring
    (around the lens) popped off. My lens worked after that! I replaced the
    chrome ring and it still works.

How to pop the battery of a vivitar 882 hd camcorder

It's not sealed just, fortunately. It's just difficult to open.
The door should be on the same side of the camera as the lens.
Turn the camera upside down, and using both thumbs, push against the flat area, about 2 cm (or, about an inch) below the lens. Push from the lens toward the Vivitar name. It may not move the first time, but it should come loose after a few attempts.
This is for the Vivitar DVR 882HD. If you have a Vivitar 882 (without the DVR), it should be the same instructions, but the door to the battery case might be on the other side...I don't know if it is or not, because I don't have that version. In either case, though, just keep trying, and it should open for you.

Camera Vivitar 5388 manual says takes max 1G memory chip. Does that mean anything bigger doesn't work at all. Rob.

It means anything bigger won't work in the ViviCam 5388. They may work in other cameras, depending on the camera.

Why doesnt my lens come out?? I just bought it and its not working

If it is still under warranty, return it.
This is more than likely a lens problem, and is not the easiest thing to fix.

My Vivitar Vivicam 5388 lens will not move or shutter operate

Hi cda_graham
Usually it is a flat battery which causes this problem. You have to put in new battery once again and try.

Good luck

The lens will not come out

Hi there.
Face the camera towards the floor and firmly tap the back of the camera while turning it on, this should hopefully free the lens so it can open, make sure that the batteries are fully charged or at least new.

Good luck and thamks for using FixYa!!

Lens wont go back in

Probably grit in the mechanism. That happened to my Olympus, but after frequent re-trying eventually the problem cured itself. It is unlikely that a repair will be economic as the price of digital cameras is so low.

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!
