Once I turn on my Aiptek MPVR camera on, it only displays the video for a second then goes black. i press every button but nothing seems to work. When i move the cursor up or down, it only shows the volume number. Put in new batteries and everything.

Sounds like maybe a connection somewhere inside the camera came loose? Or maybe the camera's firmware (camera's operating system) is damaged? I'm honestly not sure what would cause this. You could try contacting Aiptek customer service or you could post this issue at http://forums.steves-digicams.com/forums/view_forum.php?id=92
and see if anyone there is familiar with this problem.
I own a DV6800 (european version).
for the first problem- looks like a weak battery. When the camera was delivered to me, it came with a bad battery and I had it replaced.
for the second problem- there is a magnetic reed switch inside the camera and there is a magnet inside the LCD screen. The magnet activates the switch. If it is not turning on automatically then the switch is defective.
Or- there is a possiblity that the two failures are related, meaning that the reed switch is only activating for a moment (turning on the power) the after the magnet is not in close proximity (LCD opened), the reed switch will deactivate turning off the unit in 10 seconds.
I have opend my unit once because somene forced open the LCD in a wrong way. if you plant to diaasemble the unit, the re are screws under the sticker for control labels. You have to remove this sticke first.
I have my DV6800 since Decemmber 2005
