Just bought a vivitar camera vivicam 8018- it appears the shutter stays open-won't this leave the lens open to exposure/damage

If you mean the shutter inside the camera stays open while you have the camera on, this is how you're able to see what you're shooting on the screen.

I can't hear sound after i record video from my vivitar vivicam 5386

The ViviCam 5386 does not record any sound to go with its videos. You can add a soundtrack using video-editing software on a computer, but you cannot record one on the camera.

Won't work

Sounds like dirt or something is preventing the lens from opening up. Your best bet is to get a can of compressed air and a fully charged set of batteries and while the lens is oopening, spray the air into the lens opening. If after a dozen tries, then you may need to have the camera checked out. Keep in mind that the cost of a high end tech (taking apart a digital camera is about as difficult as open heart surgery!) may cost more that just buying another one.

Blurred pics

you could try 2 things..
check the configuration if its been changed.. the best thing you could try is do a factory reset... there must be an option to set your camera to default values..
the other thing is cleaning the lens with something really smooth, otherwise you could scratch the lens..
hope that works
