Question about Vivitar ViviCam 5385 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Black screen We are having the problem many others are having on this website. We were in the middle of our trip to Monterey this weekend when the screen went completely black and no more pictures can be taken. We could use the menu & could look at pictures already taken, so we have to conclude that the LCD is NOT the actual problem; however, we aren't sure why we can't take anymore pictures. We dumped all the pictures on the camera onto our computer thinking it might be "full", but still no ability to take pictures with a completely empty chip. Anything you can do to help?

Toshiba Satellite P105-S6024 screen problem


If this is happening once the PC has fully loaded the OS. You then possibly have a bad inverter or bad LCD screen. Try reloading the video driver and see if this helps. If it doesnt then you will have to replace the inverter or LCD screen. A local repair shop should be able to replace these. And I would have them try to replace the inverter first as it is usually cheaper then the screen.

Best of luck and have a Happy and safe 4th of July weekend!

2005 Mercury Monterey van - fuse location


Hello Kevin I hope I can help you find this fuse and fix this for you.The fuse location number should be 63 it should be a 30 amp fuse.I don't know if your manual will show you this location but I do hope it does.But if not I'll do my best to try and help you find it.In your fuse box look about middle ways in it.I hope you see a line of the standard small size plug-in fuse's a row or 4, just below those should be a row of 2, the row of 2 is what your looking for fuse number 63 is the one on the left if your looking straight at the fuse box, or the one on the driver,s side it should have 30 amp on it.Check that fuse or just replace it.I hope that was helpful Tim

Kodak md853


hi! my sister-in-law gave me a MD853 camera last week from Canada. I used it over the weekend when we went on a trip and the pictures and videos i took were great. Last night, my daughter took a picture of me and when she took a picture of her brother, there was only white on the screen...like a moving white sheet with colored edges. I thought she destroyed it or something. I tried to use it but now the screen is all black...last night only the video worked but this morning everything is black. The other programs in the camera works so i suspect the problem must be in the lens. I'm in the Philippines and if I send it back to Canada for repairs it would just take a long time and it will be expensive to send it back. What can I do? I really love this camera... help!!!

Well, we are having problems with the screen turned black when we try to take a picture, just like others on this website. The LCD works for the menu, but not for picture taking. It quit in the middle of the trip to Monterey. As for your problem, can you remove the chip and put the chip into the computer. That's what I just did and I copied all the pictures we took (until the black screen problem struck yesterday) and moved them to my computer that way because we can't find the cord we bought to transfer. Try that! It worked for us! Good luck to you...
