Most common problem is having the batteries installed in the wrong sequence, look on the battery holder and it will show where the positive "+" is suppose to go. If the batteries are in correctly check for corrosion both in the holder and inside the flash unit. If there is any corrosion this must be cleaned out and it'll power up. Do not blow in the flash with your mouth the corrosive material may blow up into your face or eyes.

I have this vivitar dvr 528. i cant get it to take a photo. it says on the screen card protected..

Look at your memory card. SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.
