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!!

If your camera connects with a USB cable you should be able to download the USB driver from Vivitar's web site. Once the correct USB driver is installed Windows (2000, XP, or Vista) should see the camera as a removable storage device when you connect the USB cable to your laptop. Then use Windows explorer to copy the photos from the camera (removable storage) to your hard drive.

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.

Camera lens wont open


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.
