I have purchased 60x/120xRefractor Telescope with tripod vivitar series 1/ we see nothing out of it at all what has happened

Take the scope outside during the day time. Remove the lens cap-- put the diagonal into the focuser at the rear of the scope. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the diagonal. DO NOT use the 2x barlow-- practice focusing on a distant object during the day time.

The moon should be your first target at night.

My daughter recieved a telescope 50x/100x w/ tripod for christmas and we are unable to see anything out of it? Not to mention that one of the focus lens did not come with a cap.

This is considered a toy telescope. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser-- DO NOT USE the 2x barlow if you have one. Practice focusing on a distant object during the day time.

One of the little, black retracting tripod legs broke away from the center thingy.

This is a very low cost telescope. It is not a good idea to spend money trying to repair the tripod. Parts cannot be purchased for that brand.

I have reflector telescope 672 power and im missing some pieces. I need to get one tripod leg, all the screws to the telescope and the finderscope. I needed to find out how to go about getting these...

It's not worth hunting down that many parts for that small telescope. You cannot just buy a tripod leg-- you must buy the entire tripod. Eyepieces cost at least $30 each-- and a finderscope at least another $30-$40.

Locate another complete telescope. It's not economical to repair that low cost small scope. Toys R Us who sell that brand do not furnish replacement parts.

One of the 3 clip down brackets on vivitar 1607225 tripod has snapped can a replacement bracket be bought and at what cost?

No you cannot. Your only solution is to buy another tripod, or look for something at a well stocked hardware store that you can use to fix it.

You bought a "toy" telescope. Read my TIPS for buying a telescope on my profile page.

No replacement parts available for that telescope. Suggest you take the tripod to a well stocked hard ware store and see if they have any screws, bolts, or clamps that would repair the tripod.

You can buy another photo tripod of course.

Is there a warranty on the vivitar telescope

There most likely is a warranty that came with the telescope. Check on the instructions to see if there is an address, telephone number or web site you can go to for repair. If you are having problems with the telescope right out of the box, you can quite often return it to the store where you got it and exchange it for another one. I've had to do that myself.

I hope this helps.

You probably cannot get replacement parts for that telescope. Your next best bet is a well stocked hardware store-- for some hardware to repair the tripod.
