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

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.

Hi there please follow the steps and let me know the result.

1. Ensure batteries are fully charged & clean the battery connector point in side the battery compartment.

2. Look carefully between the lens and the camera body for any sand, dirt or any damaged etc.

3. Try turning the camera with the lens facing down and shake to dislodge anything stuck

4. Try removing batteries and memory card, wait 5 minutes and refit the battery only.

5. Now turn on camera( with out card ) and see ,if working then fix the memory card & again turn on the camera. If working then fine .
Otherwise format the memory card and fix back in camera again & try. Make sure before format the memory card take a
back up all photos in your computer then format. If no luck then reset or restore the camera setting by pressing Menu key for 2 sec ..
in not done the press both Menu & self time key for 2 - 4 sec.

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.

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.
