Question about Vivitar ViviCam 3765 Digital Camera
I want to use an AC adapter for my Vivicam 3765, I have one which is not a Vivitar.
It is a: Class 2 transformer.
Input: AC 120V 4W
Output: DC 3V 400mA
Polarity: Shield (-) , Core (+)
I need to make sure that the ratings and polarity are correct before attemting to try it on my camera.
Thanks a million
The polarity is correct, but 400mA is not enough. One commercial supply I saw was rated at 2.5A. I even suspect 3v isn't enough as I have tried an external battery pack with D-Cells in it and after a few flash shots it wants new batteries. The camera itself seems to be over-sensitive to "low" voltage and complains about new or freshly charged batteries (see other posts).
There is a problem with these cameras in this battery voltage area. I have asked Vivitar what external voltage to use, but no reply. Good luck! I am sufficiently fed up with this camera that I may try 4.5v external supply and if it blows up, good riddance!
