Vivitar ViviCam T027 Troubleshooting

Flash Does Not Go Off

Flash does not work when flash button is pressed.

Camera is in Macro Mode

If the camera is in macro mode, the flash will automatically be disabled. Take the camera out of macro mode or reset it to turn on the flash.

Battery is Low

The flash will not work if the battery is low. Try recharging or replacing your battery.

Flash May Need to be Replaced

If the flash still does not work, it may need to be replaced.

SD Card Stuck in Camera

The SD card is difficult to remove or will not remove from the device.

SD card Incorrectly Inserted

If your SD card is stuck in the device, it may have been inserted incorrectly. Try carefully removing the card with tweezers.

Lens Will Not Extend

The Lens will not extend when taking a photo resulting in blurry and unclear photos.

Refresh the Camera to Extend Lens

If the lens is stuck and not extending out, try to refresh your camera. This can be done by removing the SD card and battery. Wait for a bit then reinstall the SD card and battery and power on the device.

Dust and Obstructions Preventing Lens from Extending

Look for dust and other obstructions that may be preventing the lens from extending. To clean this out use a q-tip.

Lens Jammed

Gently tap the metalwork just in case it got stuck by pressure while in its case. If this does not work, you may have to replace the lens. See how to replace the lens in this guide.

Power Button Does Not Work

Power button does not turn camera on when pressed down.

Camera won’t turn on

If the camera does not turn back on after being shut off, you may have to take out the batteries and reinsert them to power the camera back up again.

“Auto Power Off”

If the camera shuts off automatically, you may have selected the “Auto Power Off” option in order to conserve battery power. To turn this option off, go through the “Set” options until you reach the screen to disable “Auto Power Off”.

Check batteries

If the camera does not turn on, the batteries may be dead. Replace with new AAA batteries and try again.

On button is jammed

If the on button is jammed or broken, you will not be able to turn on the camera. You may need to replace the on button.

The Screen is Broken

You may get a black screen after trying to turn on the camera, which probably means the LCD screen is damaged. Learn how to replace the screen in this guide.

Batteries: Trouble Replacing and Charging

Batteries are not working and will not turn the camera on.

Wrong Type of Batteries

If you place new batteries in the camera but it does not power on, it may be because you are using the wrong kind of batteries. Ni-CD batteries may not be suitable for this device as they have a low voltage. Try using Ni-MH or alkaline batteries instead.

Thank you, thank you, THANK you!

My Vivitar 8018 camera just didn't want to flash and I thought it was either defective from the factory or perhaps broken in packaging, hard use, etc.

It never occurred to me that the flash is not made to be used in the macro mode, which is the topmost comment in your troubleshooting guide.

Strange thing is; my camera's flash doesn't want to go off in the MICRO mode, only in the MACRO mode! Either way, I got the damned flash to go off, so I'm able to use it now.
